Written by: Sevan Paris

Narrated by: Bryan Reid

Length: 1 hr and 52 mins

Series: Superheroes in Prose, Book 1

Release Date:08-01-13

Publisher: Sevan Paris

Superheroes in Prose: Welcome to Prose is a fun little audiobook that will get a few chuckles out of you, or at least it did it for me. I didn’t have any expectations for it and the title of the book sounded a little strange to me especially the Prose part. Turns out it’s the name of the fictional city where there’s an unusual clustering of superheroes per capita. This audiobook is really just the set up for the series and introduces the main superheroes that clash in epic battles with the city of Prose as the backdrop. Read the rest of this entry

777-fullOnce just for the blind, audiobooks are now being devoured by the general public be they on CDs, in digital format, or even old timey analog cassette tapes. While ebooks remain more accessible to new authors (there’s no need to find a studio or buy decent recording equipment so your narration is at the very least understandable), the audiobook industry has ballooned into a billion-dollar industry in the past few years – thanks in no small part to the easy accessibility afforded by media-capable phones and other mobile devices.

The Atlantis Gene audiobook review

Audiobook Jungle readers can download The Atlantis Gene or any other audiobook for free with a new Audible account. Click the image to sign up and download your free audiobook.

The Atlantis Gene is the debut novel of author A.G.Riddle and it successfully combines history, science, conspiracy theories, tech, evolution, and thrilling action into one. It isn’t perfect by any means, but contrary to some of the other reviews I’ve read I found it to be a very enjoyable audiobook.
Some of the reviews I’ve seen were really funny to me for several reasons. For example, they complain about how the beginning is too confusing with all the different subplots ‘thrown’ at the reader. Uhm, hello? Have you not read a thriller in your life before? This isn’t something that hasn’t been done before and in fact it’s a classic formula for the genre. If it’s too confusing for you maybe you should start with something easier, like, I don’t know, the alphabet? Read the rest of this entry

First of all, look at that book cover! Isn’t it gorgeous? OK, the omnibus edition of Sand by Hugh Howey is one of those audiobooks that made me think “Wow, this is really special!” after reading them. I don’t know if it’s the unique post appocaliptic setting, the beautiful, loneliness-inducing prose, the tough and likable characters or something other that’s intangible. I’m pretty sure Hugh Howey is some sort of wizard or at least is utilizing some sort of subconscious triggers that make me like his audiobook so much. :D Read the rest of this entry

audiobook review of The Island by Jen Minkman

The Island: The Island Series, Book 1

Written by: Jen Minkman

Narrated by: Coco Bell

Length: 2 hrs and 30 mins

Series: The Island Series, Book 1

Format: Unabridged

Release Date:02-06-14

Publisher: Kemah Bay Marketing LLC

The Island is a short, two and a half hours long novella that surprised me with some clever writing and after finishing it I found myself wanting to see more, to know what happens to the characters next. That was quite a different outcome from my sneaking suspicions when I got it at first – here we go, just another Young Adult book. Not the case it turns out.

Today at Audiobook Jungle we have our first guest review, written by Graham Kerr which will be about At Home by Bill Bryson. You can find what Graham’s up to at his Tumblr blog at whyayesosirius.tumblr.com.

“I don’t know how many hours of my school years were spent studying the Missouri Compromise or the War of the Roses, but it was vastly more than I was ever encouraged or allowed to give to the history of eating, sleeping, having sex, or endeavouring to be amused.”
Bill Bryson – At Home

Bryson finally has his wish to spend time studying the history of these things and the results make for an enticing read. Indeed, if someone had offered me money to listen to a man talk about rooms and objects in his house for 17 hours I would have, without doubt, refused. Unless they told me that this man was Bill Bryson. Now that my friends is an altogether different proposition. I’ve read all of Bryson’s works, from his early escapades with the English language through living and travelling around Britain, North America and an adventure down under.

Pride and Prejudice – the 200th Anniversary Audio Edition

Written by: Jane Austen

Narrated by: Alison Larkin

Length: 13 hrs and 21 mins

Format: Unabridged

Release Date:10-31-13

Publisher: BMA and British Classic Audio

So we have another classic book here at the Audiobook Jungle. Quite a different work from The Brothers Karamazov, which was the last classic audiobook I reviewed. Let’s start with some expectation adjustment. Modern readers have certain expectations of books. The writing style, the plot structure, the themes are all done differently done nowadays than when the novel was first published in 1813. Heck, that was two full centuries ago! Even the language sounds different. This is my recommendation for everyone that is going to read Pride and Prejudice or classic literature in general – expect it to be different.

METAtropolis: Green Space

Narrated by: Dion Graham, Robin Miles, Mark Boyett, Scott Brick, Allyson Johnson, Sanjiv Jhaveri, Jennifer Van Dyck, Jonathan Davis
Length: 14 hrs and 16 mins
Series: METAtropolis, Book 3
Release Date:10-15-13, Publisher: Audible Frontiers

Warning! You’re entering serious geek territory! Only authorized geeky personnel is to proceed beyond this point! OK, I’m kidding but seriously, this is some awesome hardcore sci-fi stuff. When a few years ago I started listening to audiobooks, one of the first books that I listened to was the original METAtropolis and I can say without any doubt that it was that moment I got completely hooked on the medium. If you haven’t read it, it’s a collection of five novellas specifically written for this book by award-winning sci-fi authors and narrated by actors from the awesome Battlestar Galactica TV show and other A Team voice talent. I just can’t recommend it enough. After hungrily plowing through it I immediately got my little hands on the next installment of this series - METAtropolis: Cascadia and indulged in some more amazing science fiction from these talented authors. That was somewhere around 2011 or 2012, I think. Imagine my recent reaction when I found out there’s a new third book. Read the rest of this entry

The Islanders by Christopher Priest Audiobook Review

The Islanders

Written by: Christopher Priest

Narrated by: Michael Maloney

Length: 11 hrs and 21 mins

Format: Unabridged

Release Date:12-17-12

Publisher: Audible Ltd

The Islanders is the type of book that’s not going to be universally liked by everyone. Not that there is something hard to understand in it or it’s flawed, but because, at least in my opinion, it doesn’t fit in the classic definition for a science fiction novel. I had my suspicions after experiencing The Prestige and my expectations were for something out of the ordinary that will surprise me. I wasn’t disappointed. Read the rest of this entry
