Armchair Audies Wrap Up (And the Winner Is…

After watching from the sidelines last year, I decided to participate in the Armchair Audies this year. Basically, participants listen to a category of Audie (the award for audiobooks) nominees and decide which one should win. I joined Trish and Melanie as judges for the Solo Narration – Male category.

The nominees:

To me, Beautiful Ruins is by far the winner here. I’ve brought you the reviews for all of the nominees except The End of the Affair (one sentence review: this was my third reading of this book and, while I thought Colin Firth was good, I’d recommend the Michael Kitchen version).

This was a fun experience and I hope to participate again next year.

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

    I loved Beautiful Ruins. Ballerini’s performance was wonderful.

    Shocking, but I actually READ Beautiful Ruins (impulsive Kindle purchase) and loved it so so much. I did regret that I didn’t listen to it though, after hearing the rave reviews.

    I totally agree with your winner. I listened, and was blown away. I love Walter, and am convinced he has a golden pen. His writing always amazes me.
