Listen in to the whole seven-minute program right here , or read the transcript here. A lovely homage to the power of the spoken word.

  1. I recently finished listening to ‘Her Fearful Symmetry’ by Audrey Niffenegger which is read by Bianca Amata. It was incredibly read and a fascinating story.

  2.' Amanda says:

    I love listening to Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, and read by Davina Porter. It’s an amazing production.

  3.' Adrienne Warner says:

    Christopher Paul Curtis’ Bud, Not Buddy was so thoroughly enjoyable. The performer, James Avery, pulled me into this story and I think it’s the best Audio I’ve heard.
