    Dimension of Miracles is a satirical science fiction novel first published by Dell in 1968. It's about Tom Carmody, a New Yorker who, thanks to a computer error, wins the main prize in the Intergalactic Sweepstakes. Tom claims his prize before the error is discovered and is allowed to keep it. However, since Tom is a human from Earth without galactic status and no space traveling experience, he has no homing instinct that can guide him back to Earth once his odyssey begins - and the galactic lottery organizers cannot transport him home.

    Author Ronda Del Boccio says: "Hilarious! - Could have been written this year"
    With audiobook narration, there are certain voices that fit perfectly with a genre. John Hodgman may now be the go-to guy for the droll-everyman-navigating-his-way-through-the-universe story (already nailing it in 2012's hilarious Year Zero). Hand-picked by Neil Gaiman (whose charming audio introduction perfectly sets the stage for what's to come), Hodgman lends the right amount of nerd-cred to this adventure, which was originally published in 1968 and is a clear forerunner to Douglas Adams' classic The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I've had a chance to hear an advance excerpt of the audio, and I just have to know how Carmody, the unsuspecting winner of a Galactic Lottery, makes his way back to Earth in one piece. --Chris, ..

    Mary Mallon was a courageous, headstrong Irish immigrant woman who bravely came to America alone, fought hard to climb up from the lowest rung of the domestic service ladder, and discovered in herself an uncanny, and coveted, talent for cooking. Working in the kitchens of the upper class, she left a trail of disease in her wake, until one enterprising and ruthless "medical engineer" proposed the inconceivable notion of the "asymptomatic carrier" - and from then on Mary Mallon was a hunted woman.

    Sand says: "A vivid and revealing slice of NYC history"
    Was Mary Mallon just a scapegoat? A victim of a paranoid society willing to vilify and discard a poor, Irish immigrant and domestic worker based solely on shoddy science and sensationalism? Fever tells the story as "Typhoid Mary" may have told it herself. Through her eyes we get an insider's view of early 20th Century New York City and of the perfect storm she was swept up in. Not a meek, unsophisticated victim at all, Mary is a woman ahead of her time in many ways: unmarried by choice, a bread winner, a skilled cook, and a fighter. She does not simply accept her diagnosis, and by questioning the science behind the accusations she adds pressure on the doctors to better understand the spread of disease, and on the legal system to address ..

    A long-lost Modigliani portrait, a grieving brother’s blood vendetta, a Soviet secret that's been buried for eighty years - Parisian private investigator Aimée Leduc's current case is her most exciting one yet. When Aimée’s long-term partner and best friend Rene leaves their detective agency for a new job in Silicon Valley, Aimée knows she can handle the extra workload. At least, that what she tells herself...repeatedly. But all bets are off when Yuri Volodya, a mysterious old Russian man, hires Aimée to protect a painting.

    Julia says: "Narration horrible!"
    I've been wanting to return to Paris, ever since visiting two years ago, so I jumped at the chance to read Cara Black's Murder Below Montparnasse. It's the 13th mystery in the Aimée Leduc P.I. series, but you don't already have to be a fan to enjoy it. A stolen Modigliani painting, family secrets, the Serbian mafia, and more make for a fast-paced ride through the hilly, artist-lined streets of Montparnasse. I can't wait to hear Madeleine Lambert's take on the tough and stylish Aimée - or to start the series from the beginning. Bon voyage! --Diana M., Audible Editor

    This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States. Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven.

    Katheryne says: "Where there is love there is freedom..."
    One perk of being an Audible Editor is that I am often lucky enough to get my hands on an early copy of a much-coveted book. This was the case with Requiem - the final book in Lauren Oliver's marvelous dystopian trilogy. And the conclusion was as brilliant as the first two books. Young Adult literature is experiencing a real renaissance right now and I've been reading and listening to a lot of it, but this series beats out all the others, in my opinion. Oliver's world is creepily compelling and utterly unique, and the narration is top-notch. Even though I've already read Requiem I'll be listening to it as soon as I can: Sarah Drew rivals Emma Galvin as today's best YA voice. --Emily, ..

    Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York City as soon as they possibly could. Jim, a sleek, successful corporate lawyer, has belittled his bighearted brother their whole lives, and Bob, a Legal Aid attorney who idolizes Jim, has always taken it in stride. But their long-standing dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan - the Burgess sibling who stayed behind - urgently calls them home.

    Susianna says: "Some Secrets Shouldn't be Kept"
    Jim and Bob Burgess escaped their Maine hometown just as soon as they could... but now their nephew's "antics" have brought them back home where they're forced to relive the accident that killed their father and deal with the (not-so-pretty) realities of their relationships. Elizabeth Strout won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for her last book, Olive Kitteridge, which I loved, so my expectations were high for this new novel. Similar to Olive, the protagonists here aren't necessarily likeable, but the character studies are so insightful, so raw and real, you can't help but be drawn in - especially with Cassandra Campbell at the helm. --Diana D., Audible Editor
