We are happy to share that several of our audiobook productions (and our marketing team!) received an award at the 2018 Audie Awards. Make sure you have all of these award winners in your collection!
Winner: Audiobook of the Year
“If fiction lovers listen to just one audiobook in 2017—or ever—it should be this one.” –Publishers Weekly (starred)
“Like the novel, the audiobook breaks new ground in what can be accomplished through a story. It helps that there’s not a single bad note in the cast of a whopping 166 people. It’s also the rare phenomenon of an audiobook being a completely different experience compared to the novel. Even if you’ve read the novel, the audiobook is worth a listen (and vice versa). The whole project pushes the narrative form forward.” –The A.V. Club
“A cinematic (and potentially record-setting) audiobook that pushes the current boundaries of the format.” –Library Journal (starred)
“Narrator Mark Bramhall’s gravelly voice is a perfect match for this timeless yet contemporary story of history and progress in the American West.” –Audiofile
“It is a story as informative as it is emotionally moving, and Bramhall presents it with a skillful, even-handed delivery.” –Publishers Weekly
“The fight… [over] Yellowstone’s wolves is embodied in O-Six’s story, told with great immediacy and empathy in a tale that reads like fiction. This one will grab readers and impel them into the heart of the conflict.” –Booklist (starred)
“Narrator McCarron gives an award-worthy performance: her Eleanor is by turns comical in her obliviousness to basic things and utterly heartbreaking in discussing her past. Her narration is nuanced.” –Publishers Weekly (starred)
“McCarron especially shines in setting the story’s emotional tone.” –Audiofile (Earphones Award Winner)
“Vance’s extraordinary talent comes through in the tense dramatic scenes involving a research study of twins gone awry and in his special ability to differentiate men, women, young, and old from all over the globe.” –Audiofile (Earphones Award Winner)
“Twisting plot lines tie together in this complicated, fascinating mystery.” –Publishers Weekly (starred)
Winner: Middle Grade
“Kivlighan de Montebello’s engaging young voice embodies 11-year-old Alex Petroski…an altogether captivating listening experience.” –Audiofile (Earphones Award Winner)
In addition, Penguin Random House Audio won an Excellence in Marketing Audie Award for “Transform Your Commute,” an NYC campaign that encouraged listeners to turn a sour commute sweet with audiobooks.
