Amazing

Each of the New Yorker Audible issues so far has been an incredible treasure. Many of us have subscribed to the New Yorker over the years, only to leave piles of them unread. This is a way to enjoy each week's New Yorker in a more consistent way. This is the way New Yorkers were meant to be enjoyed. Subscribe to the New Yorker for the cartoons, and for some of the articles that haven't been recorded, but don't miss the New Yorkers in this medium, superlatively read, quirky, thought-provoking. This is a don't miss experience.

A must-hear!

FROM STEVE FELDBERG, PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR, AUDIBLE:

If you're like me, there's so much great writing out there that demands to be read, but you just don't have time to read it. That's what makes our audio version of "The New Yorker" so rewarding. Each week, I can listen to at least a half-dozen stories from the most literate magazine on Earth. So far I've heard David Sedaris, Jonathan Franzen, and John Updike, plus other entertaining and informative stuff from the magazine's staff writers. If you're going to spend your commuting time wisely, or you're looking for a more intellectual way of multi-tasking, this is the subscription for you!

Not the full edition - abridged

What disappointed you about The New Yorker?

I'd like to have the entire magazine available. Sadly, this is an abridged version.

Short subscription

Turns out you only get 10 months (roughly 30 issues counting the double issues as one) for your 4-credit purchase. This should be openly stated in the description.

Excellent content, great narration!

Jeffrey Toobin's articles are usually quite good; this one was outstanding. Toobin's in-depth knowledge of constitutional law and the Supreme Court are on display in this artilce, in which he shows the political activism of the current Court lead by John Roberts. This Court is undoing decades of precedent upon which our society relies. We elect our politicians so that they will enact laws which achieve goals and objectives important to us. But this Court can and will change those IT doesn't like!

Best of the Best

Would you consider the audio edition of The New Yorker to be better than the print version?

The audio edition isn't

What about the narrator???s performance did you like?

They always have good readers who keep the articles interesting.

Any additional comments?

Interesting topics, outstanding writing, witty. This is the second year I've had this subscription. I will be renewing my subscription again and looking forward to a third year.

Going downhill

Why do the publishers of the audible version of the New Yorker think that their weekly editorial interests us? Why does the reader always adopt a mocking tone when he is reading quotes from someone from the right side of the political spectrum? Why can't they edit out one of the takes when they have to do 2 takes. Oh and this one features a story about a hired killer who is a really nice guy. Once upon a time this was a good magazine. What happened?

Great stuff

I honestly don't know what I'd do without The New Yorker. Hendrik Herzburg, John Cassidy et al - provide more than a window on the world. Witty, I want to say hopeful even though the subject is often difficult even tragic - the hope flows from its veracity. I find my conversation returns to the contents of the latest issue; reminding me of Whistlers reply to Oscra Wild's "I wish I'd said that.", "You will, dear boy you will."

Read by robots!

All the articles are 'read' by robotic voices. The robotic voices are quite good ones, as they go, but still, they are just awful to listen to.
