November is just beginning, and Audible has released a list of some of the most anticipated audiobook releases for the month. Grab your Christmas list, because there are some amazing books on the way!
Stephen King’s Under the Dome is on the way in mid-November. When the town of Chester’s Mill, Maine is suddenly sealed off by an invisible force field, the good citizens attempt to find out why they have been isolated… and how much time they have.
This sounds like a return to classic Stephen King to me. I used to read everything he wrote. The last few years, I’m thinking right around From a Buick 8 which I couldn’t get through,
I have been bored with him. The hype surrounding Under the Dome has me curious, so I will definitely be giving it a try.
James Patterson is releasing, I Alex Cross in November. While I have abandoned most of Patterson’s work, I have continued to read the Alex Cross series. It seems to be the only one that he writes without a co-author.
I was not thrilled with the last entry, Cross Country, as I didn’t think it stayed true to its characters. I’m hoping that this one, involving the murder of Cross’s niece, is enjoyable. If not, I’ll be done with Patterson for good.
Breathless, by Dean Koontz, is on the way. I have mixed feelings about Koontz. I love his Odd Thomas books. His style of writing is so sardonic and wry, that it can get distracting. His books are always fast paced and thrilling, so I will most likely take a look at this one, about a mystery set in the mountains of Colorado, at some point.
David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure, is on my Christmas list. That’s right – if you are shopping for me, pick this one up. Sedaris is so funny. I love the way he presents his eccentric family as well as his own idiosyncrasies. This collection contains some of his National Public Radio pieces as well as some of his short fiction and essays.
Last Words by George Carlin with Tony Hendra, is the autobiography of one of the funniest, and most talented comedians of all time. If you have never heard his “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”, check it out on YouTube… but not if you are easily offended.
An Autobiography by Andre Agassi is drawing attention in the US press. The US tennis star struggled with his confidence, relationships, and addiction issues. I remember watching Agassi win in1992 at Wimbledon. This should make for a very interesting read.
So, make out your holiday shopping lists, people! Audiobooks for everyone! Check Out Audible for all the latest releases.
