40 lines about 20 audiobooks by CH [BOOK WEEK]

I listen to audiobooks all the time. Here are some thoughts on 20 of them.


Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi

This could only happen in Hollywood.

Great story, love the sci-fi real world mashup.

Redshirts: A Novel in Three Codas by John Scalzi

The secret life of expendable characters and read by Wil Wheaton.

My favorite book of the year

World War Z by Max Brooks

Ken Burns does zombies.

Definitely get the audio book; its an all star cast.

The Man in the High Castle by Phillip K. Dick

If the Axis won WW2

A mundane life in an parallel world

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

Beautifully written.

But, way too long and the worst-written sex I have ever read.

7th Sigma by Steven Gould

Louis L’amour does Sci-fi

Fun story. Can’t wait for the sequel

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Made me want to run away and join it.

Takes a long time to get started, but the world is so great I didn’t care

Way Station by Clifford D. Simak

Old school sci-fi

Like looking at a time capsule of America in the 50s

Time Travelers Never Die by Jack McDevitt

But they don’t do much else.

I would call this Bad Decisions Made Through Time.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah E. Harkness

Vampires are cool.

Witches are full of angst.

Behemoth, Goliath, and Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Steam Punk WW1 in a Young Adult Book

For fans of YA and revisionist history alike.

If you liked Hunger Games, you’ll probably also like this.

This author gets better and better with time.

One of the best voices in YA, but his characters can be frustrating.

Just tell him already!!!

Interworld by Neil Gaiman

Another world by Neil Gaiman.

Feels like a pilot for a tv show.

Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman

Being a superhero can suck

Being a super villain sucks as well

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Body snatchers can be your friend.

Or aliens can be real dicks.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith


Just No.

Peter and The Star Catchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Peter Pan before he was cool.

Read it on the beach.
