In the past few months, I've listened the following books, all of which I highly recommend:
- Seveneves by Neal Stephenson
- Fear the Sky by Stephen Moss (book 1)
- Fear the Survivors by Stephen Moss (book 2)
- Fear the Future by Stephen Moss (book 3)
Seveneves is amazing. I first heard about it on the Adam Savage podcast and immediately downloaded the audiobook. It did not disappoint. Seveneves is also being turned into a movie so make sure to read the book first because there's no way a movie can cover the entire book in 2-3 hours. Once you read the book, you'll see what I mean.
I came across about The Fear Saga (3 books) as I was looking through other audiobooks narrated by R.C. Bray, the narrator of my favorite audiobook, The Martian (my review here). Once again R.C. Bray delivers an amazing performance and the books are great. I wouldn't be surprised if they try to turn this into a movie at some point.
I just downloaded How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, as it was recommended on an episode of the Tim Ferriss podcast recently. I haven't started it yet, but what really intrigued me is that the story is told in the second person perspective - meaning, the story is told addressed to "you." Not sure if that is gimmicky or genius, but I'm certainly looking forward to giving it a try.
The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe
I've been a long, long time fan of Mike Rowe. From all his great narration work on the Discovery Channel to Dirty Work to his Ted Talk, Mike Rowe is an amazing storyteller. Each episode of this podcast is in bite sized 5-10 mins, which always leaves you wanting more. I recommend starting with Episode 2: He Had It All.
