Here is our selection of the best audiobooks. Normally, at Five Books we recommend . . . well, books. But if you spend a lot of time on your feet—commuting, or exercising—finding a good audiobook can be an even bigger boon than discovering your latest paperback.
Choosing the best audiobooks is a tough task. The underlying book has to be good, obviously, but the audio performance has to be good, too. Perhaps some books which aren’t so good can be improved into something stunning by a great audio performance, or a book that’s wonderful can be ruined by an audio performer who isn’t great at dialogue (say). Below are some of our favourites: books recommended by experts on Five Books, but whose audiobook quality we can also personally vouch for.
