Heard any good books lately?

A fantastic selection of new audio books have just been added to our OneClickdigital audiobook service.  Over the next six months we will be adding new audiobooks every month to double the number of titles available.

New titles include:

The Hippopotamus by Stephen Fry

Fired from his newspaper and disgusted with a world that undervalues him, Ted Wallace seeks a few months repose and free drink at the country mansion of his old friend, Lord Logan. But strange things have been going on at Swafford Hall, phenomena beyond the comprehension of a hippopotamus like Ted. Narrated by the author.

The Secret Hunters by Ranulph Fiennes

As a child, Derek Jacobs was an inmate of a Nazi prison camp and saw his mother horrifically abused. Now forging a career in the environment movement, he is co-opted by the Secret Hunters – a group who track down the perpetrators of genocide to exact their revenge.

If you’ve seen the films, why not listen to the literary versions of:

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel by Deborah Moggach

Enticed by advertisements for a newly restored palatial hotel and filled with visions of a life of leisure, good weather and mango juice in their gin, a group of very different people leave England to begin a new life in India. On arrival they are dismayed to find the palace is a shell of its former self, the staff more than a little eccentric, and the days of the Raj long gone. But, as they soon discover, life and love can begin again, even in the most unexpected circumstances.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

On her way home from school on a snowy December day, 14-year-old Susie Salmon is lured into a cornfield and brutally raped and murdered, the latest victim of a serial killer. The Lovely Bones, Alice Sebold’s haunting and heartbreaking debut novel, unfolds from heaven, where “life is a perpetual yesterday” and where Susie narrates and keeps watch over her grieving family and friends, as well as her brazen killer and the sad detective working on her case.
