My favorite audiobooks from 2013 with descriptions in 10 words or less. In the approximate order in which I heard them.
- The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
Classic mystery with unexpectedly hilarious characters. Read by B.J. Harrison at The Classic Tales Podcast, my review here.
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Listening to this much-beloved book gave it new depth (Read by Rob Inglis)
- The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
I’ve never enjoyed the last book of the trilogy … until now. (Read by Rob Inglis. My review of Return of the King here which reflects my experience listening to the entire trilogy.)
- The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett
Perfect noir listening for our vacation travels together. (Read by William Dufris’ whose “fat man” has to be heard to be appreciated.)
- The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
Enchanting tour of Halloween history with boys on a mission. (Read by Bronson Pinchot.)
- The Poison Belt by Arthur Conan Doyle
The apocalypse in Victorian times told by a master storyteller (Read by Gildart Jackson. My review here)
