I am only a third into The Iliad with plenty of hours (15) still to go, but I have a credit to spend on Audible… and I am starting to think about what I want to listen to next. My first impulse is always a non-fiction book, probably an autobiography, but I would like to try something different… I was looking around and I have come up with a list of five books I would be interested in.
1. Sadie (Courney Summers) – I have heard a lot of good things about the audio book for this one. The podcast element makes this an interesting option.
2. The Return of the Native (Thomas Hardy) – I have tried to read the physical book a couple of times in the past and found it hard to get into. I found an audio version narrated by Alan Rickman, which I might try.
3. Born a Crime (Trevor Noah) – An autobiography that I have heard so many people talk about. Trevor Noah of course narrates it himself.
4. Storm Front (Jim Butcher) – The first book of the Dresden Files. This series intrigues me. The fact that James Marsters narrates it, makes it very tempting to give a go.
5. Darkdawn (Jay Kristoff) – It’s definitely an option, but the audio book is 21 hours long, so quite a commitment again.
Which one would you choose? Or do you have any audio book recommendations in general? I heard that The Poet X is very good, but unfortunately not available on Audible.
I would love to hear your thoughts and recs!
