A Trip to the Hardware Store & Other Calamities: Quirky Essays for Quirky People

Written by: Barbara Venkataraman

Narrated by: Carrie Lee Martz

Length: 55 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 02-26-14

Publisher: Barbara Markley

I was hesitant to dedicate a whole post reviewing this title because at 55 minutes long it’s weird to even call it an audiobook, considering most podcasts these days are longer. However, I’m pleased to do so because some people aren’t into podcasts and this format may be of interest to them. Have an hour to kill while driving or doing chores? This light and humourus read will provide you with family friendly entertainment in the form of short essays about everyday life events. Doesn’t sound like much but most of them are quite relatable and surprisingly funny. Read the rest of this entry

Dead Drunk

Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

Written by: Richard Johnson

Narrated by: Neil Hellegers

Length: 6 hrs and 4 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 11-14-13

Publisher: Richard D. Johnson

Apparently, I’m on a zombie streak this month with yet another zombie apocalypse audiobook. Dead Drunk seemed to be a promising zombie novel that doesn’t take itself too seriously which is very refreshing considering the generally morbid and depressing nature of the post-apocalyptic genre. Johnson’s prose flowed very well which made the audiobook listening experience quite enjoyable. The character differentiation was done quite clearly by Neil Hellegers with a few noteworthy performances like the old redneck Uncle Russ, for example. Gotta have a good hillbilly character in a zombie novel! Read the rest of this entry

Braineater Jones

Written by: Stephen Kozeniewski

Narrated by: Steve Rimpici

Length: 5 hrs and 55 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 03-06-14

Publisher: Red Adept Publishing, LLC

I love zombies. Well, stories about zombies that is… I’ve probably watched every zombie/post-apocalyptic movie and series in existence plus the most noteworthy books in the genre (I should probably do a guide listing the best zombie books at some point) but when a new one comes out I just can’t say no! For Braineater Jones I’m glad I didn’t because it was a hell of a lot of fun! It’s definitely not your typical survival story where a group of people is trying to battle the endless hordes of undead. That’s OK though, as there are plenty of other books that are like that. Read the rest of this entry

Free: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Written by: Washington Irving

Narrated by: Tom Mison

Length: 1 hr and 15 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date:09-09-14

I’ve never actually read the original Legend of Sleepy Hollow until now, so this audiobook rendition was my first experience with the American classic. If you like me happen to have not read the legend, it tells the story of Ichabod Crane – a teacher in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, more often called by its’ residents as Sleepy Hollow. He among other men from the town is courting Katrina Van Tassel – the young and only daughter of a wealthy farmer.  Read the rest of this entry

Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy

Written by: Ophira Eisenberg

Narrated by: Ophira Eisenberg

Length: 7 hrs and 31 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date:02-18-14

Publisher: Audible Studios

Screw Everyone is one of the few comedy audiobooks I’ve listened to and I’m usually not very excited about reading someones’ memoirs but this time it was definitely worth it and I enjoyed the whole audiobook. It’s narrated by Ophira herself which makes it that much more personal. There’s also the fact that she doesn’t hide anything about her life and describes every part of it with a unique self-deprecating sense of humor that is sure to put a smile on your face.

Hard Duty - Merkiaari Wars Series

Audiobook Jungle readers can get the Hard Duty audiobook for free when signing up for a new Audible account. Click on this image to sign up and get your free copy!

Written by: Mark E. Cooper

Narrated by: Mikael Naramore

Length: 12 hrs and 42 mins

Series: Merkiaari Wars, Book 1

Format: Unabridged

Release Date:02-18-14

Publisher: Impulse Books UK

Are you up for some awesome space opera action? Then continue reading because Hard Duty by Mark E. Cooper is just the audiobook for you. In my opinion it takes a lot of courage to start writing a space opera series because there are so many good books out there already and the fans of the genre are going to ruthlessly compare your works with other authors. I guess that’s true for all genres but it’s kind of hard to pull off a good space opera that’s somewhat original and adds something to the genre. However, Mr. Cooper seems to be on the right path with Hard Duty, the first novel in the Merkiaari Wars series. Read the rest of this entry

Superheroes In Prose audiobook review

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

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
