#AudibleOriginal

For such a short little story, it packs a punch. We are given a glimpse into a powerful family dynamic as an Indian mother in Delhi desparately tries to arrange a marriage for her daughter living in LA. Told completely in telephone conversations, the story starts off comically before turning darker toward the end. It was a lot of fun listening to this. #audibleoriginal #karma #arrangedmarriage #Indian

Started listening to this on my commute today. It's entertaining, but I have a pressing question for the Litsy community: Is it a book? I'm torn with some of these #audibleoriginal selections. It's pretty short and in an unusual format. What do you think?

WTF am I listening to?! Very strange, indeed. Screaming men, weird sound effects and very strange scene transitions.

This one caught my attention right away and didn't let go. For a short story/novella length story, it really had a great plot and interesting premise. The narration was also fantastic. #audibleoriginal

Interesting & disturbing. The use of first person by the author while explaining his research and take on the story creates some confusion, as there are many quotes by others also given in first person. This doesn't translate well in an audio only format. Also, the narrator is quite chipper, which doesn't fit with the subject matter. Overall, I give ⭐⭐⭐ which for me is a solid "meh." #truecrime #rape #serialkiller #audibleoriginal

This #AudibleOriginal is powerful, I cried. A moving, poignant, at times ugly and terrifying narrative that reveals the true cost of war. The untold suffering that the Greatest Generation faced during World War II and for decades after returning home and how it effected and shaped future generations.

2/5

I got this one as a free #audibleoriginal. It‘s probably unfair for me to rate it because, even though it‘s a stand alone, I‘m sure it would‘ve made more sense if I‘d read the two books before it. Also, I haven‘t been in the mood for paranormal in a while. It was pretty boring though and there was nothing interesting about it.

I just finished listening to an audiobook from Audible. This was my #tbrjarpick for this month. Next, I‘m going to pick another audiobook to listen to that I got on Audible.

I finished listening to #anansiboys on #audible tonight and my next #tbrjarpick that my #tbrjar just picked for me is from #audible and it‘s called Evil Eye by #madhurishekar. This audiobook is an #audibleoriginal. It sounds interesting.

I think I would‘ve enjoyed this as a teen/pre-teen. I wasn‘t the target audience. But as usual, the #audibleoriginal was produced well and the narrators did a great job. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #mystery #audiobook

rretzler I also chose this as my Audible original. I was skeptical of my pick, and now even more so. The monthly choices just don‘t seem very good to me. The only book so far that interested me, I had already purchased. 😕 3mo
I_Like_Big_Books @rretzler I completely agree. It's rare that I even pick one. Don't get me wrong, the production is typically really good but none of them usually sound appealing to me. As I was listening to this one, I just kept thinking... how many teens really listen to audible? I'm sure some do but it can't be Audible's target audience. 3mo
rretzler I usually pick my 2 just to take advantage but doubt that I will get around to reading them. As for the teen part, I think it may be more than one would think. My 14 yo is mildly dyslexic and a very reluctant reader - however, he doesn‘t mind listening to audiobooks or being read to, so we share my Audible subscription. I suppose it‘s possible that Audible may want to have one teen pick each month, but I haven‘t been impressed with those either. 3mo
I_Like_Big_Books @rretzler Good point! My kids are still young but I do like the idea of getting them into Audible when they get older. I don't know about sharing my account though - :) the majority of my library is a little too risque! Lol! :) 3mo
