The Outsiders

Written by: S.E. Hinton

Narrated by: Jim Fyfe

Length: 5 hours and 12 minutes

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: July 22, 2004

Publisher: Listening Library

There are many excellent novels that will stick with you for many years. Some of these are a little less modern and their settings are somewhat irrelevant to today’s society. There are few that could interpret today’s society better than S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. The story could very well take place in today’s urban America. The tale of brotherhood and childhood rivalries is intense, touching and uplifting. If you’ve never read the book, you might want to consider checking out the audiobook, which is narrated by Jim Fyfe. Read the rest of this entry

Throughout the years, avid readers have been presented with a handful of excellent and heart wrenching war tales. Some of these have been forgotten in the translation of time, while a few notable classics have managed to withstand this test and still remain popular today. Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front is undeniably one of the most enthralling war novels of all time! It is a tale, which is relevant in today’s society and helps to educate the reader to the turmoil and losses of war. As reading has become less popular, many have switched over to the audiobook.

Animal Farm

Written by: George Orwell

Narrated by: Simon Callow

Length: 3 hours and 11 minutes

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: December 7, 2009

Publisher: CSA Word

Over the years, there have been several authors, who have been able to captivate consecutive generations. With his dystopian novels, which borderline on conspiracy theories, George Orwell has managed to remain a popular figure in mainstream media. Although his novel, 1984, is likely his most cited work, Animal Farm is also well worth checking out. His humorous take on the Russian Revolution is enjoyable from page to page and will keep the reader engaged all the way to the conclusion. Read the rest of this entry

Moby Dick

Length: 21 hours and 20 minutes

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: October 27, 2008

Publisher: Recorded Books

Throughout the years, some amazing novels have captured the imaginations of children and adults all around the world. Although there many that are imaginative and captivating, few can match the excitement of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick! This truly adventurous novel might be lengthy, but it can hold the reader’s attention, until the final confrontation! The story has a little something for everyone. It is somewhat of a romance, a realistic look at whaling and a true dramatic exemplification of a heroic conflict. The spirited tale is part humor and part odyssey, as Ishmael and his merry men go on a dangerous hunt for the legendary Moby Dick. Read the rest of this entry

Fahrenheit 451

Written by: Ray Bradbury

Narrated by: Stephen Hoye

Length: 5 hours and 37 Minutes

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: August 11, 2010

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Over the years, there have been some outstanding novels, which have withstood the test of time. While some have perished, others have gone on to be adapted into films and audiobooks. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is undoubtedly one of the best-recognized classics. This book, which was previously published in 1953, was written during the great book burning scandal in the United States. Although the writer later changed his tune, the previous statement is more intriguing. Now, the book is available in audiobook format and it is a real treat! Read the rest of this entry

Narrated by: William Golding

Length: 6 hours and 35 minutes

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: October 3, 2003

Publisher: Listening Library

Some books can skyrocket to fame overnight, while others take time to prosper. The Lord of the Flies ultimately lands in the latter category. Since its initial failure, the book overcame the odds, become a best seller and was adapted into two films! From that point forward, Lord of the Flies has found its way onto numerous “must read” lists. In today’s time, there is no need to read! Times have changed, but fabulous books still remain as intriguing as ever. This is especially true, when it comes to William Golding’s Lord of the Flies! Read the rest of this entry

To Kill a Mockingbird

Written by: Harper Lee

Narrated by: Sissy Spacek

Length: 12 hrs and 17 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 07-08-14

Publisher: Harper Audio

To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic book for many reasons. It tells a story of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl. Most people have already read it at some point either by choice or because they had to for their schoolwork. It wasn’t included in our high school literature classes, which is fine because I don’t think I would’ve appreciated it as much as I do now. Considering I’m generally not a huge classics fan (some of them are really overrated) I’m glad to have the To Kill a Mockingbird audiobook in my collection as I’ll probably re-read it again at some point.

Unabridged Audiobook

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

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.

About the author

Bram Stoker was an Irish writer and is best known for his novels and short stories. The Gothic horror novel Dracula is probably his most popular work. He lived during the Victorian and Edwardian Eras (1847 – 1912) and published Dracula in 1897.

What is Dracula about

Dracula is the original vampire story. It’s what got vampires into the public psyche, making them a subject of fascination and fear for years to come. It’s about Count Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England and the struggle of a small group led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing (no, not the one with ragged coat, long hair and crossbow) to prevent him from achieving his goal.
