This Week’s Hot New Releases
New Audio Book Releases
It’s Friday again and everybody’s looking forward to the weekend! Will you be spending some of your weekend with an audio book? If you don’t have a title ready here are a few suggestions of new audio books that have been released this week.
“Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, where she dies of a marijuana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone’s favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel.
Passion, Danger and Witchcraft are the focus of Philippa Gregory‘s latest audio book, The Lady of the Rivers. The Lady of the Rivers is the remarkable story of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, a woman who navigated a treacherous path through the battle lines in the Wars of the Rose. A sweeping, powerful story rich in passion and legend and drawing on years of research, The Lady of the Rivers tells the story of the real-life mother of the white queen.
New York Times bestselling author John Connolly is back with a sequel to The Gates. The Infernals is a wonderfully strange and brilliant novel about a boy, his dog, and their struggle to escape the wrath of demons. Young Samuel Johnson is in trouble. Not only is his eyesight so poor that he mistakenly asks out a letter box on a date, but an angry demon is seeking revenge for Samuel’s part in foiling the invasion of Earth by the forces of evil. It wants to get its claws on Samuel, and when Samuel and his faithful dachshund, Boswell, are pulled through a portal into the dark realm, the home of the Infernals, it gets its chance.
Jeff Lindsay is back with latest audio book in the Dexter series. Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tolerate displeasure, in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.
I’ve already listened to Damned, and am excited for The Infernals and The Lady of the Rivers, (I guess I have a lot of listening to do this weekend!). Which of these new audio books sparks your interest?
