2017-2018 Audiobooks

Seminary stole books from me. While I read about as much as ever in my year and a half in the Master's program, I had to skim a bunch of crap I would've never let touch my shelf all the while forfeiting my time to read good literature. I read one book between each semester, and compensated the rest of the time with audiobooks. Now that I'm done with grad school, I'm going to have to wean myself off of audio books and get back to the real thing. (I love audio books, especially the good ones, but I'll always find special value in using my eyes rather than my ears to actually sit and read a physical book.)

Here are my favorite audiobooks from the past year or so:


The Fifth Gospel, Ian Caldwell (read by Jack Davenport)

The Power, Naomi Alderman (read by Adjoa Andoh)

The Book of Lost Things, John Connolly (read by Steven Crossley)

The Red Rising Series, Pierce Brown (read by Tim Gerard Reynolds)

The Border Trilogy, Cormac McCarthy (read by Frank Muller and Richard Poe)

Dune, Frank Herbet (read by Scott Brick, Orlagh Cassidy, Euan Morton, Simon Vance, Iliana Kadushin)


Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, Ibram X. Kendi (read by Christopher Dontrell Piper)

The Story of Christianity Vol. 1 & 2, Justo Gonzalez (read by Michael Kramer)
