Brave New World

Written by: Aldous Huxley

Narrated by: Michael York

Length: Blackstone Audio Inc.

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: January 16, 2008

Publisher: Blackstone Audio, Inc.

Throughout the generations, times have changed. Some books have grown less popular and this is a major mistake. By looking into the past and examining a handful of classic novels, it is possible to experience the future. Although George Orwell is likely best known for realistically capturing the future, Aldous Huxley should also be credited for his book, Brave New World, which does the same! The book delves into many societal problems, which are predominant today. Drugs, anti-aging schemes, social control and media manipulation are all present.

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.

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!

Narrated by: William Golding

Length: 6 hours and 35 minutes

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: October 3, 2003

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!

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.
