Favorite Audiobooks: From Spooky to Scary

This week we’ll be taking a look at three spine-tingling audiobooks. You will find that with these types of books the narrator makes ALL the difference and you can rest assured that the following narrators are excellent.

graveyardbook

The Graveyard Book written and performed by Neil Gaiman Nobody Owens (aka ‘Bod’) is a normal boy being raised in a graveyard. In a similar fashion to The Jungle Book, Bod is adopted by the inhabitants of his unique home; separate tales are told about Bod’s interactions with ghosts and other denizens of the graveyard.

heartshapedbox

Heart-Shaped Box written by Joe Hill, performed by Stephen Lang Rock star Judas Coyne is a collector of the bizarre and grotesque, so when he sees a ghost for sale on the internet he buys it. It comes delivered in a black heart-shaped box. Entertaining and very scary, with exceptional narration.

doctorsleep

Doctor Sleep written by Stephen King, performed by Will Patton This sequel to The Shining follows middle-aged recovering addict Danny Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from murderous supernatural forces. A very good book that became a great audiobook.
