AFTERMATH

AFTERMATH

by LeVar Burton | Read by LeVar Burton

Hachette Audio | Unabridged
Science Fiction

Levar Burton's sonorous and soothing narration makes his 1997 novel, with a recent update, engaging because many of his predictions have come true. Burton is best known for playing Lt. Cmdr. Geordi La Forge on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and for hosting the PBS program "Reading Rainbow." His sincere and forthright voice has just a bit more bass now as he ages. The story...

AMID THE CROWD OF STARS

AMID THE CROWD OF STARS

by Stephen Leigh | Read by Tanya Eby

Dreamscape | Unabridged
Science Fiction

Tanya Eby provides a smooth narration of this sci-fi saga. She develops a strong persona for Ichiko, an exobiologist who is on a mission to explore as much of the planet Canis Lupus as possible. Eby uses Scottish accents for the planet's colonists, who have been cut off from their home on Earth for centuries. She gives more subtle differences to the voices of Ichiko's... Read More

THE BODY SCOUT

THE BODY SCOUT

by Lincoln Michel | Read by Greg Chun

Hachette Audio | Unabridged
Science Fiction

Greg Chun narrates this futuristic detective story in which humans regularly alter their bodies to stay young, strong, and famous. Chun's first-person portrayal of a professional baseball scout who is forced into doing some detective work harkens back to noir fiction of the 1940s. His deadpan delivery of many of the funniest lines lets listeners know that the main character is... Read More

JUDGE DREDD

JUDGE DREDD America

by John Wagner | Read by Joseph Fiennes, Paterson Joseph, Matthew Jacobs Morgan

Random House UK | Audio Program
Science Fiction

A movie-like production with multiple narrators makes the latest Judge Dredd audiobook a pleasure to hear. Narrator Joseph Fiennes excels as the rough-hewn Judge Dredd, who lives in a ravaged future in which judges serve as police, jury, and executioners of those who resist a brutal dictatorship. The story holds true to the comic book series on which it is based. The people of... Read More

THE MARTIAN

THE MARTIAN

Earphones Award Winner

by Andy Weir | Read by Wil Wheaton

Audible, Inc. | Unabridged
Science Fiction

Wil Wheaton skillfully narrates this unrelenting and data-dense audiobook. His first-person portrayal of Mark Watney, an astronaut who is stranded alone on Mars for a year and a half, is nothing short of stellar. Wheaton elevates the listener's experience with a light-handed yet convincing delivery of an immense amount of technical material. Perfectly paced, this audiobook is... Read More

SOMETHING NEW UNDER THE SUN

SOMETHING NEW UNDER THE SUN

by Alexandra Kleeman | Read by Marin Ireland

Random House Audio | Unabridged
Science Fiction

Narrator Marin Ireland has a gift for mimicry. She invests each character with a tone, inflection, and pace that establish their identity. Her Valley girls sound vapid and her stoners stoned, but each has slightly different gradations. Hollywood power types, the essence of corruption, are voiced expertly as greedy and affectless. In the darkening landscape of this dystopian... Read More
