The Window Man

by Louise Millar
Narrated by Clare Corbett
Killer Women Anthology #1 - Here at AudioShelf we enjoy a creepy short story every once in awhile. Since it’s still Valentine’s week, we thought what better story to share than an uncomfortable tale of love. In The Window Man we follow Sarah as she house sits for a work friend. During her stay in the house, a window is broken causing Sarah to become the tiniest bit raddled and to call upon the window man for a repair. That’s about all the information we can give since this audiobook was 25 minutes and contains a subtle, yet shocking twist in the last minute. Enjoy our review of a story that we believe to be a creepy love letter that leaves a lasting chill.

Episode Eighteen

The Couple Next Door

by Shari Lapena
Narrated by Kirsten Potter
With more twists than a twizzler, Shari Lapena’s thriller will leave you at the edge of your seat. If The Couple Next Door were a how-to-guide it would be called: What not to do when you have a baby. Step 1 would be not leaving your new bundle of joy at home ALONE while you go next door to drink, and step 2...well just repeat that first step until your child is old enough to scream when being kidnapped. YES. KIDNAPPED! Everything is not as it seems in this neighborhood and you’ll want to keep your ears on alert until the very last second.

Episode Seventeen

Interview with Imogen Church

Beyond the Headphones
A narrator with a phenomenal voice is like having a million friends to spend your evening with (even if some of those friends are evil). Audiobook of the year nominated, Imogen Church is a true vocal extraordinaire. She’s talented, hilarious, and after spending 30 minutes with Imogen, we really wish she could narrate our lives. With over 50 audiobooks recorded, her ability to create auditory magic is unprecedented. Imogen has quickly become one of our favorite narrators, and we are so ecstatic to have had the opportunity to chat with her!

Episode Fifteen

Pax

by Sara Pennypacker
Narrated by Michael Curran-Dorsano
Happy New Year, everyone! With the dawn of 2017 upon us, we chose to listen to Pax by Sara Pennypacker. A coming of age novel with voices that alternate between Peter, a clumsy boy with confidence issues, and Pax, a spritely fox who’s goal in life is to protect “his boy.” Human and animal growth are equally explored through loss, friendship, and the occasional fox yip. Get your tissues ready, ya’ll, this one’s heartbreakingly gorgeous.
