"I've always been a huge fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and am well known to eagerly await each of her new releases like a kid on Christmas. So I'd have to say my favorite audible book I've listened to this year is Heroes Are My Weakness, narrated by Erin Bennett. The book is not only a romance, but a clever take on the old gothic romances of the past, combining mystery, a brooding alpha hero, an isolated house on an island amidst the cliffs, a plucky, fun heroine, and puppets. With Phillips' trademark humor, and a narrator who works her way beautifully through the book, I loved this audio, which kept me great company in the car on my many trips!" --Jennifer Probst
KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER BY SINGRID UNDSET
"At Audible, we acquired the accessible, modern translation by Tiina Nunnally (which actually restored sections that had been cut from the 1920s version I found in that bookshop). Audible Studios cast Erin Bennett, who de-mystifies the Norwegian names, and, more importantly *becomes* Kristin’s voice as the listener follows her story from cradle to grave. Finally I've had the joy and catharsis of listening to the entire saga -- all 45 hours of it – in “my” format. A piece of me envies listeners who are about to discover this story and its characters for the first time, but mostly I hope Kristin Lavransdatter finds her audience, and that her audience finds Kristin."--Christina, Audible Editor
