The Accident Audiobook

The Accident

Author: Dawn Goodwin Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: December 2018

A gripping, debut psychological thriller that will keep you hooked. Perfect for fans of Paula Hawkins and S.J. Watson. Veronica Pullman's comfortable suburban life comes to a shuddering halt when her young daughter Grace tragically dies in a car accident. Months later, unable to come to terms with her daughter's death, detached from her husband and alienated from her friends and family, a chance encounter on a rainy street pushes her into an unlikely new friendship. Scarlet is everything Veronica could've been: feisty, adventurous, unpredictable. But as she approaches what would have been Grace's 10th birthday, it becomes clear to Veronica that the friendship she thought was saving her life could be costing her everything. Consumed by grief and left questioning her own sanity, is there anyone she can really trust or is someone out to torment her as part of their twisted game? "This novel is a beautifully written, if disturbing, exploration of how grief affects friendships, marriage and the main character's sense of self." ANITA DAVISON, author of Flora's Secret

Autobiography: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Autobiography: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Laura Marcus Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: November 2018

Autobiography is one of the most popular of written forms. From Casanova to Benjamin Franklin to the Kardashians, individuals throughout history have recorded their own lives and experiences. These personal writings are central to the work of literary critics, philosophers, historians and psychologists, who have found in autobiographies from across the centuries not only an understanding of the ways in which lives have been lived, but the most fundamental accounts of what it means to be a self in the world. In this Very Short Introduction Laura Marcus defines what we mean by "autobiography", and considers its relationship with similar literary forms such as memoirs, journals, letters, diaries, and essays. Analyzing the core themes in autobiographical writing, such as confession, conversion and testimony; romanticism and the journeying self; Marcus discusses the autobiographical consciousness (and the roles played by time, memory and identity), and considers the relationship between psychoanalysis and autobiography. Exploring the themes of self-portraiture and performance, Marcus also discusses the ways in which fiction and autobiography have shaped each other.

The Return Audiobook

The Return

Author: Kelly St. Clare Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: November 2018

Three months ago, Romy emerged from the cultivation tanks after a year floating inside. Body intact. Mind broken. Memory gone. Now she undergoes regular testing as doctors work to find out . . . well, she's not exactly sure what. The tests must have something to do with the reason she can't remember her knot-the single lucid memory the other insane soldiers on Orbito Four still possess. Whatever the researchers are searching for, if it aids the soldiers in the deathly war against the lethal alien invaders-the Critamal-the excruciating pain is worth it. But a grey-eyed man has other plans. Boxed in and caught, Romy is taken hostage by people who shouldn't exist! They dress in black and carry weapons she's never seen in her genetically enhanced life. Reunited with Knot 27. Memories returned. Fifteen months have passed since her world shattered into bright red, ringing chaos. Things have changed-people have changed. How long until what was once as familiar as breathing is familiar once more? Friendships. Love. Freedom. Can the new Romy reconcile with the old, or will the two halves of herself remain locked in an internal battle? And if a victor should arise from this silent war . . . will it be the part of her that kills without hesitation, without mercy? All it takes is for the cracks to join and blood will pour.

The Retreat Audiobook

The Retreat

Author: Kelly St. Clare Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: October 2018

Keepers of Earth. One hundred and fifty years ago, global warming brought humankind to the edge of extinction. In a desperate bid for survival, four thousand genetically enhanced soldiers-the last slice of humanity-were sent to eight space stations. To serve. To protect. Then the Critamal arrived, uninvited. Waves of aliens now work to break through the Orbitos' defences, the black-shelled creatures seeking to colonise the vacated and barren world. War is their reality. All Romy can do is fight alongside her knot and watch from the mocking midst of the stars as Earth rises and falls in the distance. She dreams of a different life-one free from the mark of death and the never-ending touch of loss. Be careful what you wish for . . . When a technical glitch during battle leaves Romy and the four other members of Knot 27 hurtling through orbit towards Planet Earth, Romy knows they are dead one way or another. If the crash doesn't kill them, post-global warming conditions will. Yet days pass as Romy wanders injured and aimless through the bush. Alone. Every second, every day she continues to breathe disputes what they have been told. As Romy desperately searches for her knot, she comes across a grey-eyed man-a mysterious and close-lipped presence she is not certain she can trust. Especially when he shouldn't even exist. Secrets are unmasked. A different version of Earth bursts to the surface. Will Romy survive the betrayal and lies threatening to shatter her mind like glass? Earth was ruined. Humankind destroyed. Or so they were told . . .

Silicon States: The Power and Politics of Big Tech and What It Means for Our Future Audiobook

Silicon States: The Power and Politics of Big Tech and What It Means for Our Future

Author: Lucie Greene Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: August 2018

Welcome to the Silicon States. Silicon Valley is imperializing the planet. With nearly bottomless supplies of cash and ambition, a small group of companies have been gradually seizing symbolic and practical civic leadership in America and worldwide. But Silicon Valley does not answer to the electorate; nor have they been voted into office. And the perils of their influence are only now making themselves known. The institutions of Facebook, Google, and Twitter are implicated in the investigation of Russian interference into U.S. elections, providing the public their first opportunity to glimpse the wizards behind the curtain: how these businesses operate, where their interests lie, and the power they wield over an unsuspecting citizenry. While the promise of Silicon Valley is bold, futuristic, and seductive, it is important to understand these corporations' possible impact on our future. Silicon States emphasizes that before we hand our future over to a rarified group of companies, we examine the world they might build: its benefits, prejudices, and inherent flaws. And to ask, ultimately, if we really want it.

Transforming Harry: The Adaptation of Harry Potter in the Transmedia Age Audiobook

Transforming Harry: The Adaptation of Harry Potter in the Transmedia Age

Author: John Alberti, P. Andrew Miller, Various Authors Narrator: Esther Wane, Shaun Grindell Release Date: July 2018

Transforming Harry: The Adaptation of Harry Potter in the Transmedia Age is an edited volume of eight essays that look at how the cinematic versions of the seven Harry Potter novels represent an unprecedented cultural event in the history of cinematic adaptation. The movie version of the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, premiered in 2001, in between publication of the fourth and fifth books of this global literary phenomenon. As a result, the production and reception of both novel and movie series became intertwined with one another, creating a fanbase who accessed the series first through the books, first through the movies, and in various other combinations. John Alberti and P. Andrew Miller have gathered scholars to explore and examine the cultural, political, aesthetic, and pedagogical dimensions of this pop culture phenomenon and how it has changed the reception of both the films and books. While the primary focus of the collection is an academic audience, it will appeal to a broad range of listeners. Within the academic community, Transforming Harry will be of interest to scholars and teachers in a number of disciplines, including film and media studies and English.

Cognitive Gadgets: The Cultural Evolution of Thinking Audiobook

Cognitive Gadgets: The Cultural Evolution of Thinking

Author: Cecilia Heyes Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: July 2018

How did human minds become so different from those of other animals? What accounts for our capacity to understand the way the physical world works, to think ourselves into the minds of others, to gossip, read, tell stories about the past, and imagine the future? These questions are not new: they have been debated by philosophers, psychologists, anthropologists, evolutionists, and neurobiologists over the course of centuries. One explanation widely accepted today is that humans have special cognitive instincts. Unlike other living animal species, we are born with complicated mechanisms for reasoning about causation, reading the minds of others, copying behaviors, and using language. Cecilia Heyes agrees that adult humans have impressive pieces of cognitive equipment. In her framing, however, these cognitive gadgets are not instincts programmed in the genes but are constructed in the course of childhood through social interaction. Cognitive gadgets are products of cultural evolution, rather than genetic evolution. At birth, the minds of human babies are only subtly different from the minds of newborn chimpanzees. We are friendlier, our attention is drawn to different things, and we have a capacity to learn and remember that outstrips the abilities of newborn chimpanzees. Yet when these subtle differences are exposed to culture-soaked human environments, they have enormous effects. They enable us to upload distinctively human ways of thinking from the social world around us. As Cognitive Gadgets makes clear, from birth our malleable human minds can learn through culture not only what to think but how to think it.
