2013 Audiobook of the Year Nominees and Reviews

The following audiobooks were nominated in the Package Design Category. This category is being reviewed by Jennifer from Literate Housewife.


American Grown by Michelle Obama and narrated by Michelle Obama, Jim Adams, Charlie Brandts, Christeta Comerford, Sam Kass, Bill Yosses, and a full cast


Literate Housewife

Interesting gardening content, but the narration was akin to watching a local cable channel show. The narrators were passionate, but not very comfortable behind the microphone.


Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter and narrated by Edoardo Ballerini


None currently available


The End of the Affair by Graham Greene and narrated by Colin Firth


Literate Housewife

Colin Firth, while a man with a nice reading voice, was without passion while narrating most of this audiobook. As this book is all about the passion, it left me bored and wishing I had listened to the Michael Kitchen narration again.


Killing Kennedy by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugars and narrated by Bill O’Reilly


Literate Housewife

Engaging narrative non-fiction that was not enhanced by the newscaster quality of O’Reilly’s narration. I will never think of hypothyroidism seriously again.
