Audiobook Week Mid-Week Meme – Audiobook Week Discussion

audiobook week 2013

Day 1: 2012-2013: My audiobook year
Day 2: How Do You Choose Your Audiobooks? – Audiobook Week Discussion

Today is a meme:

Current/most recent audiobook:

Eighty Days Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland

It’s the true story of how 2 women journalists, separately, very different in character, working for 2 different newspapers, tried to go around the world by themselves in 1889 in less than 80 eighty days – see Phileas Fogg.
I’m not too far in the book, they are on the first phase of their journey, but I like it a lot: description of social condition for women at the time in the world of journalism, good presentation of 2 fierce women going totally against the wind of the time.

The narrator Kathe Mazur has a rather neutral tone so far, but I expect it to evolve with the women’s adventures.

  2. I really want to listen to Ready Player One because just like you said, the narrator is good and so is the story. My library thus far doesn’t carry it. I’m going to have to request it.
