You said you'd listen to your favorite narrators read anything: Well, this ambrosial new audiobook brings together an acclaimed cast of narrators to read aloud the menus of some of our favorite local restaurants here at Audible headquarters in Newark, New Jersey, as only they know how. You haven't truly lived, or dined, until you've heard Cassandra Campbell capture the emotional nuances of Newark's best Indian-inflected burgers or let Nick Podehl extol the virtues of the pear arugula salad and then seductively steer you toward a plate of creamy mushroom linguini.

I was moved! I took an emotional journey from bratwurst to chile con carne and loved it! Happy Easter Fools to the Audible staff and thank you for an entertaining morning!

  • I Do It with the Lights On

From the star of TLC's My Big Fat Fabulous Life and the YouTube sensation "A Fat Girl Dancing" comes an empowering memoir about letting go of your limitations and living the life you deserve. Right now. Whitney Way Thore stands five feet two inches tall and weighs well over 300 pounds, and she is totally, completely, and truly...happy. But she wasn't always the vivacious, confident woman you see on TV. Growing up as a dancer, Whitney felt the pressure to be thin.

The mediocre sound engineering of this audio book made it practically unlistenable. I like the story, I thought it was really great, but it was very very hard to listen to. The sound goes in and out constantly.

Everyone who lives at 23 Beulah Grove has a secret. If they didn't, they wouldn't be renting rooms in a dodgy old building for cash - no credit check, no lease. It's the kind of place you end up when you you've run out of other options.The six residents mostly keep to themselves, but one unbearably hot summer night, a terrible accident pushes them into an uneasy alliance. What they don't know is that one of them is a killer. He's already chosen his next victim, and he'll do anything to protect his secret.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Killer Next Door to be better than the print version?

Yes.

What did you like best about this story?

The delivery of the reader! The story is great, too, but Imogen Church's performance is fantastic.

What does Imogen Church bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Fantastic acting, voices, emotion!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

For long drives...it was not all at once but I found myself wanting to go back and listen to it after I got to my destination!
