"An audiobook that needs no introduction but really, if you haven’t listened, what are you waiting for? Rob Inglis’ spot-on narration makes this, in my opinion, the definitive edition of the classic fantasy adventure (and one of my all time favorites)." —Catherine H., Audible Editor
"If you love a good mystery and are even remotely interested in sci-fi or horror, 14 is the perfect escapist treat, and listener-favorite narrator Ray Porter is at the top of his game in this performance. Plus if you loved LOST like I did, this book will help with those withdrawals you're likely still experiencing (just me?)" —Sam P., Audible Editor
“Attention: this novel is narrated by Jim Dale. If you are an adult looking for a fantasy that’s bewilderingly magical, then look no further. I repeat, we have Jim Dale here! Enter the world of the Night Circus and prepare to be entranced, a little lost, and a lot in love.” —Melissa B., Audible Editor
More than two centuries after World War III poisoned the planet, the final bastion of humanity lives on massive airships circling the globe in search of a habitable area to call home. Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago....
5 out of 5 stars
A little cliche action hero-y but damn good story anyway
"Hell Divers is my main jam. Author Nicholas Sansbury Smith executes a brilliant concept flawlessly, and narrator R. C. Bray adds a crisp bravado that makes this whole series stupefyingly good." —Michael D., Audible Editor
"Even though I am not usually a fan of the urban fantasy genre, I naturally gravitated towards this series for the simple fact that it takes place in Arizona (I am from Arizona) and that it is beloved by Audible listeners. A perfect blend of suspense, excitement, and humor, Kevin Hearne builds this world of the Iron Druid Chronicles with beautiful prose that I could not stop listening to." —Kyle S., Audible Editor
It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war....
"Mid-century American society is considered, by many, to be the golden age of the United States, but how easily we could have been forced into a very different reality is what makes this so vivid and chilling a listen. Philip K. Dick is a master of melding sci-fi and reality in a way that causes you to pause and assess your own life and times, and to that end this book does not disappoint." —Kyle S., Audible Editor
"This stunningly edited full-cast performance brings a whole new dimension to the Alien franchise while maintaining the spirit of the original film. It's perfect for longtime fans, and those who are brand new who can jump right in without confusion—just be prepared to sleep with the light on for a while." —Catherine H., Audible Editor
"The most profoundly hopeful post-apocalyptic novel that I have ever listened to, Station Eleven shows us what the future looks like when we do our best to preserve culture and humanity even after all else seems lost." —Catherine H., Audible Editor
"Okay, maybe this is one of those cases where the movie is more iconic than the book itself—but I urge any fan of the film or sci-fi in general to listen to Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (retitled here). The novel is much different—in some ways trippier, in some ways even more complex—and Philip K. Dick himself was apparently delighted with how Ridley Scott imagined his world." —Sam P., Audible Editor
The narrator of Atwood's riveting novel calls himself Snowman. When the story opens, he is sleeping in a tree, wearing an old bedsheet, mourning the loss of his beloved Oryx and his best friend Crake, and slowly starving to death....
"The Handmaid's Tale is of course my favorite of Atwood's novels, but Oryx and Crake is a very close second. Mixing dystopia with speculative fiction, and exploring themes of genetic engineering and climate change, this is a heartbreaking, terrifying, and unsettingly plausible vision." —Sam P., Audible Editor
"This clever and enchanting tale satisfies the urge to run off and join the circus. And what puts it at the top of my list is the stand-out narration by Ari Fliakos, whose extraordinary performance left me completely spellbound." —Tricia F., Audible Editor
“This book is such a gem. It's fun, quirky, totally strange, and will definitely put a smile on your face. I'm not a huge sci-fi listener, but this has just the right amount.” —Laura M., Audible Editor
"Being introduced to Octavia E. Butler was an awakening for me. Even though I’d often gravitated to sci-fi, finding this Black author ahead of her time with this visionary near-future dystopian tale of separatism as a means to move forward reinforced the power of storytelling for me.” —Abby W., Audible Editor
"Don't go into this one expecting action like The Martian, but if you love a good character study this is your book. Meg Howrey highlights the small moments that make up big personalities for a book that doesn't need to blast off to be far out." —Michael D., Audible Editor
"It's hard not to love this super quirky and original story from Nick Harkaway. Every moment is packed with referential wit and style, and British narrator Matt Bates adds just the right amount of spark to what is otherwise actually a very heartwarming story." —Michael D., Audible Editor
“Okay, so we’ve got Arabian pirates, magic, a runaway bride, and good helping of teen angst. A winning combination? At first I chuckled at the description, but then I had to swallow my laughter when I found I’d devoured the thing in two days. With Tania Rodrigues as the narrator, the hours melted away and I ended up loving this adventuresome romantic fantasy.” —Melissa B., Audible Editor
