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.
