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

The Atlantis Gene: The Origin Mystery, Book 1

Written by: A. G. Riddle

Narrated by: Stephen Bel Davies

Length: 15 hrs and 44 mins

Series: The Origin Mystery, Book 1

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 03-18-14

Publisher: Audible Studios

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

Sand: Omnibus Edition

Written by: Hugh Howey

Narrated by: Karen Chilton

Length: 10 hrs and 15 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 03-11-14

Publisher: Broad Reach Publishing

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. 😀 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.

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.

The Device by Patrick Skelton

Written by: Patrick Skelton

Narrated by: Kurt Feldner

Length: 7 hrs and 40 mins

Format: Unabridged

Release Date:10-04-13

Publisher: Patrick Skelton

The Device by Patrick Skelton seemed like an intriguing sci-fi story so I couldn’t resist reading it. A mysterious device, a troubled man on a quest to uncover the secrets of his past  and a chilling discovery that might change the world. What’s not to like? It’s an interesting premise and the author largely delivers. Read the rest of this entry

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 05-11-13

Publisher: Aaron Paul Lazar

Marcella Hollister has moved on with her life since her first love – Sky has disappeared eighteen years ago during a mission in Iraq. Her best friend since childhood, Callie, a quiet and shy girl suffering from agoraphobia, almost loses her mind when out of the blue a mysterious package arrives at her house. It’s her brother Sky’s old backpack and she doesn’t know how to deal with this, neither does Marcella.

The two women examine the contents of the unexpected package, trying to figure out why Sky would send them small colorfully labeled bottles full of precious essential oils. Not only that but there’s also a password-protected memory stick. And how the hell did Sky get hold of a velvet bag full of emeralds? It just doesn’t make any sense. Read the rest of this entry

Narrated by: Melissa Reizian Frank

Length: 8 hrs and 27 mins

Series: Cassie Scot, Book 1

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 09-20-13

Publisher: 2011

I guess it gets harder and harder for authors to come up with original paranormal fantasy stories as the genre becomes more saturated. Yet somehow, Christine Amsden manages to whip up an interesting magical fantasy world that combines the already well established tropes in an unusual and appealing way. Powerful magical families struggling for power, vampires hiding in plain sight and wrecking havoc in an otherwise relatively (para)normal town and amidst of it all – Cassie Scot, the ingifted sorcerers’ daughter trying to figure out life without her parents hanging over her shoulder.

Stonewiser: The Heart of the Stone by Dora Machado Audiobook Review

Stonewiser: The Heart of the Stone

Written by: Dora Machado

Narrated by: Melissa Reizian Frank

Length: 16 hrs and 36 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 09-13-13

Publisher: Mermaid Publishing, LLC

Who is the author

Dora Machado, the author of the Stonewiser trilogy is relatively new to the fantasy scene, at least that’s what I gathered from looking her up online. At the time of posting this review she has written four fantasy novels which seem to be well received from the readers. The first book in the Stonewiser trilogy, Stonewiser: The Heart of the Stone is the one I read and I’ll certainly be grabbing the next one as soon as possible. It’s really good. No wonder it won the 2009 Benjamin Franklin award for best debut novel. Read the rest of this entry
