3 Audiobooks Worth Listening to!

I have been using Audible since 2012 on and off.

And here are the best audiobooks I am listening to these days!

Table of contents

The Sherlock Holmes Collection

✔ Price: JPY400

✔ Listening Length: 67 hours and 44 minutes

✔ Release Date: 2019/July/11

I know “Benedict Cumberbatch Reads Sherlock Holmes’ Rediscovered Railway Stories” is the most populer Sherlock Homes audiobook and ranked #1 in Mystery Anthologies at this moment.

And yet, I bought this one for one good reason – the best price.

It is US$14.95 at amazon.com, however, it is just 400yen (which is like US$5) at amazon.co.jp!

Who would miss out this special price?

Not to mention, it is over 67 hour reading. SIXTY-SEVEN!

True audiobook lover like myself would enjoy this long collection.

Anne of Green Gables

✔ Price: JPY700

✔ Listening Length : 10 hours and 21 minutes

✔ Release Date: 2020/January/3

Love the language which Anne uses.

Great narrator, sound very clear but there is no shrill voice. So, I would say it is a great book for English learners.

Comfortable listening to anytime – in the morning and bed time.

My Sister’s Keeper

✔ Price: JPY2,700

✔ Listening Length : 13 hours and 41 minutes

✔ Release Date: 2016/March/29

My very first “read by ears is easier than read by eyes” experience.

I couldn’t keep reading the actual book in English at first, but I was so eager to know the story. So, I listened. Once I finish listening to this delicate story, I was full of motivation to complete reading it. Since I knew the flow and what to expect, the second attempt was much smooth and I enjoyed both listening to and reading to this book until the end.

Not sure if I love the story itself, but this book somehow made me want to read/listen to it again and again.
