Top 4 Free Audio Book Selections

November 8, 2009 3 comments

ITS FREE!

Sorry about that, but it had to be said. The first line is many times what is heard most clearly. I am a big believer in free, and love to pass around what I learn about for others to experience. If you had checked out my links to the left, you would notice that they all lead to free software, programs, and entertainment for everyone. So in this article, i am going to give you a short list of the best (in my opinion) 4 audio books you can get (FOR FREE).

Infected

1) Infected & Contagious by Scott Sigler

Infected is the most thrilling book you will ever read (rivaled only by Contagious). It is about a disease that is running rampant through communities, making people become homicidal maniacs, and killing even there own family. Paranoia, fear, rage, and suspicion are all that the infected become. Contagious is the sequel to infected, and I know you will be dying to listen to it once you hear Infected.

 

 

 

2) 7th Son Trilogy by J.C. Hutchins

When a story starts with the President of the United States being murdered, you know its going to be good. Clones, conspiracies, high technology, military coups, plotting, killing and ultimate evil is alive and well in this trilogy. Arguably the best part of all of this is that its a series, meaning that much more material to experience!

 

 

 

3) One Among The Sleepless by Mike Bennett

Ever had a noisy neighbor? How about someone who just annoyed you unbelievably? Ever wanted them dead, even for a moment? Mike Bennett explores many facets of human emotions and how we interact with one another. And while this story takes place in England, it relates to anyone and everyone. Bennett does a marvelous job bringing you to the edge of your proverbial seat with anticipation of what he’s going to put the characters through next.

 

 

 

4) Shadowmagic by John Lenahan

John Lenahan wrote this novel with the purpose being to create a family-friendly story for his young son. What came out of his work was, in my humble opinion, one of the finest pieces of fantasy I have had the pleasure to experience. The story has a teenage guy being transported to Tir na Nog, the mystical land of the ancient Celts. “Dont you just hate when that happens?”

What follows is his account of finding completely unexpected twists and turns that change his world in ways he can barely understand. Warning! This story may make you wish you were in a fantasy world.

 

 

So there you go. In no particular order, those are my favorites. Because of fairness to the other authors, I didn’t include Scott Sigler’s other works (which means read them people!). If you are not already on the Podcast novel scene, consider this your invitation. Believe it or not, all of these are legally on Podiobooks.com for free. Pass this around and by doing so you will be spreading happiness and appreciation for a new form of story telling.
