Best audiobooks of 2021

Talking book or Audiobooks as they are known have had immense market growth in the last twenty years.

An audiobook is a recording of a book which is read out loud. When a narrator or voice over actor reads the complete text it is termed, unabridged, whereas shorter versions are described as abridged.

Spoken audio recordings of books began almost 90 years ago but has seen vast and sustained growth in the last 40 years.

Since the mid-90s the Audio Publishers Association has run the Audie Awards for audiobooks. For the industry it is their, Oscars ceremony. which is equivalent to the Oscar for the audiobook industry. Normally it runs in conjunction with BookExpo America.

Audio has been helped by advances in technology and particularly by tablets, smartphones and multimedia entertainment systems in cars,.

Many listeners tune in to talking books in their cars, while exercising or while performing mundane tasks like hoovering the carpet.

India is one of the most exciting markets for talking books with possibly the greatest growth potential for audiobooks.

Many people in the cities of India face long commutes and audiobooks are a great way to pass the time.

Many commuters prefer business books to listen to as audio books, though fiction, including crime, espionage, political fiction and thrillers, re an increasingly growing market.

Now Audio books are being made in the various Indian languages. The increase in popularity is also fuelled by the increasingly diverse and high quality fiction being written by Indian authors such as: R.K Narayan, Nirad C. Chaudhuri, Mulk Raj Anand, Khushwant Singh, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Anita Desai, Salman Rushdie, Rohinton Mistry, Ruskin Bond, Upamanyu Chatterjee, Amitav Ghosh, Vikram Seth, Aravind Adiga and Jhumpa Lahiri.

Idia is a fascinating and vibrant country with great writers who we should all listen to.

And for my Indian readers:

टॉकिंग बुक या ऑडियोबुक, जैसा कि वे जानते हैं, पिछले बीस वर्षों में बाजार में काफी वृद्धि हुई है।

एक ऑडियोबुक एक किताब की रिकॉर्डिंग है जिसे जोर से पढ़ा जाता है। जब कोई कथावाचक या वॉयस ओवर अभिनेता पूरा पाठ पढ़ता है तो उसे संक्षिप्त कहा जाता है, जबकि छोटे संस्करणों को संक्षिप्त रूप में वर्णित किया जाता है।
किताबों की स्पोकन ऑडियो रिकॉर्डिंग लगभग 90 साल पहले शुरू हुई थी, लेकिन पिछले 40 वर्षों में इसमें व्यापक और निरंतर वृद्धि देखी गई है।
90 के दशक के मध्य से ऑडियो पब्लिशर्स एसोसिएशन ने ऑडियोबुक के लिए ऑडी अवार्ड्स चलाए हैं। उद्योग के लिए यह उनका ऑस्कर समारोह है। जो ऑडियोबुक उद्योग के लिए ऑस्कर के बराबर है। आम तौर पर यह BookExpo America के संयोजन में चलता है।
ऑडियो को प्रौद्योगिकी में प्रगति और विशेष रूप से कारों में टैबलेट, स्मार्टफोन और मल्टीमीडिया मनोरंजन प्रणालियों द्वारा मदद मिली है।
कई श्रोता व्यायाम करते समय या कालीन पर फहराने जैसे सांसारिक कार्यों को करते समय अपनी कारों में बात करने वाली किताबों को देखते हैं।
भारत, टॉकिंग बुक्स के लिए सबसे रोमांचक बाजारों में से एक है, जिसमें संभवतः ऑडियोबुक्स के लिए सबसे बड़ी विकास क्षमता है।
भारत के शहरों में बहुत से लोगों को लंबी यात्रा का सामना करना पड़ता है और ऑडियोबुक समय गुजारने का एक शानदार तरीका है।
कई यात्री व्यावसायिक पुस्तकों को ऑडियो पुस्तकों के रूप में सुनना पसंद करते हैं, हालांकि अपराध, जासूसी, राजनीतिक कथा और थ्रिलर सहित कल्पना, एक तेजी से बढ़ता बाजार है।
अब विभिन्न भारतीय भाषाओं में ऑडियो पुस्तकें बनाई जा रही हैं। लोकप्रियता में वृद्धि भारतीय लेखकों द्वारा लिखी जा रही तेजी से विविध और उच्च गुणवत्ता वाली कथाओं से भी प्रेरित है जैसे: आरके नारायण, नीरद सी चौधरी, मुल्क राज आनंद, खुशवंत सिंह, रूथ प्रवर झाबवाला, अनीता देसाई, सलमान रुश्दी, रोहिंटन मिस्त्री , रस्किन बॉन्ड, उपमन्यु चटर्जी, अमिताव घोष, विक्रम सेठ, अरविंद अडिगा और झुम्पा लाहिड़ी।
इडिया महान लेखकों वाला एक आकर्षक और जीवंत देश है, जिसे हम सभी को सुनना चाहिए।
यह अमेज़ॅन और ऑडिबल पर उपलब्ध फिक्शन और थ्रिलर शैली में कुछ बेहतरीन ऑडियोबुक की सूची है:

90 ke dashak ke madhy se odiyo pablishars esosieshan ne odiyobuk ke lie odee avaards chalae hain. udyog ke lie yah unaka oskar samaaroh hai. jo odiyobuk udyog ke lie oskar ke baraabar hai. aam taur par yah bookaixpo amairich ke sanyojan mein chalata hai.
odiyo ko praudyogikee mein pragati aur vishesh roop se kaaron mein taibalet, smaartaphon aur malteemeediya manoranjan pranaaliyon dvaara madad milee hai.
kaee shrota vyaayaam karate samay ya kaaleen par phaharaane jaise saansaarik kaaryon ko karate samay apanee kaaron mein baat karane vaalee kitaabon ko dekhate hain.
bhaarat, toking buks ke lie sabase romaanchak baajaaron mein se ek hai, jisamen sambhavatah odiyobuks ke lie sabase badee vikaas kshamata hai.
bhaarat ke shaharon mein bahut se logon ko lambee yaatra ka saamana karana padata hai aur odiyobuk samay gujaarane ka ek shaanadaar tareeka hai.
kaee yaatree vyaavasaayik pustakon ko odiyo pustakon ke roop mein sunana pasand karate hain, haalaanki aparaadh, jaasoosee, raajaneetik katha aur thrilar sahit kalpana, ek tejee se badhata baajaar hai.
ab vibhinn bhaarateey bhaashaon mein odiyo pustaken banaee ja rahee hain. lokapriyata mein vrddhi bhaarateey lekhakon dvaara likhee ja rahee tejee se vividh aur uchch gunavatta vaalee kathaon se bhee prerit hai jaise: aarake naaraayan, neerad see chaudharee, mulk raaj aanand, khushavant sinh, rooth pravar jhaabavaala, aneeta desaee, salamaan rushdee, rohintan mistree , raskin bond, upamanyu chatarjee, amitaav ghosh, vikram seth, aravind adiga aur jhumpa laahidee.
idiya mahaan lekhakon vaala ek aakarshak aur jeevant desh hai, jise ham sabhee ko sunana chaahie.
yah amezain aur odibal par upalabdh phikshan aur thrilar shailee mein kuchh behatareen odiyobuk kee soochee hai:
ek amezain sahayogee ke roop mein main yogy khareed se kamaata hoon.
mujhe is post mein link ke maadhyam se kee gaee khareedaaree ke lie kameeshan milata hai. yah aapake dvaara lie jaane vaale mooly ko prabhaavit nahin karata hai

Why not pick up a book from one of these great writers and spend a few hours enjoying being with yourself and the author.

Is this set to be the next Netflix series or Hollywood blockbuster film for 2021?

Netflix Originals – What is next?

Will See Glass, by the writer Ido Graf, be the next blockbuster film or Netflix Original for the coming year of 2021?

The movie and television industry has reinvigorated itself over the last few years with great films and diverse series coming out of Hollywood and Netflix Originals. It has been the saving of many of us during the pandemic. The great Hollywood studios such as Universal Pictures, MGM, Paramount Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures have been a life saver.

Who among us has not sat glued to the TV unable to pull ourselves away as we wait for a new Hollywood blockbuster release or the next instalment of a Netflix Original series …I have felt as if I am an addict – unable to drag myself from the screen even to pour another glass of wine. I cannot help it – some of these series are just so professionally written and engaging that I feel lost without them.

When I get though every episode of a series, I am often suffering withdrawal. Sometimes it even starts before I finish watching every episode which is available! I look down the diminishing list of episodes that I have left and feel a gut-wrenching sense of loss – what will I possibly do when the series is complete?

I begin to question myself! Could Netflix be playing a joke on their viewers – Surely, I don’t have to wait a month until the next series is released?   Have I misread the list of episodes? Maybe there are more that I didn’t notice? Yes that’s it!

I knew that I should have stopped at the last bottle of wine – my vision is going! It’s all been a horrible hallucination! Yes, it’s true – there is another series and more episodes available! Have I got time to run to the kitchen to grab another bottle of wine and some crisps before it starts – Oh and a saucepan too so I can go to the toilet while I’m sat on the sofa?

I make a dash for it!

But no, it’s not true! There is not another series yet! What a nightmare! So I start watching it again to stave off depression while I wait for the next series to be released.

I know! I think to myself – I will watch the whole series again on the TV from the start with my right eye which will help me to keep a grip. Then I can hold up my phone and scan with my left eye to search for another new series to get hooked on.

Then I realise that with two hands in use I cannot use my saucepan or drink my wine. Fortunately, these problems are less insurmountable than my issues with SLL, ‘Series Love Loss’.

I lean forward without taking either eye from the screens and grasp the lip of the bottle with my teeth. I slowly tilt my head back while keeping my balance and without either eye losing contact with the screens. Then a heartfelt memory of one of the greatest Hollywood films comes to mind – Apollo 13. My lips form a manic grin as I compare myself to those astronauts – they thought they were attempting the impossible with little measure for error! If they could see me now, then they would realise that they had it easy!

I am beginning to sweat now as things are becoming critical! I just must GO PEE! This is an absolute crisis! Unperturbed and unrelenting as the right eye is seeing a clever pot twist and the left eye has found something interesting – I shift my weight on the sofa and use the toes of both feet to grip the saucepan to pull it towards me – a task made more difficult from slippery food residue on the outside from a week ago when I last ate something.

Then things enter a critical stage – I am beginning to break down – the pressure is too great. Something must give!

Then just in the nick of time when the plot twist in my right eye is at its pinnacle – my body gives up. I cannot hold back the floodgates anymore. The sofa is soaking wet, but at least it is warm – I drop the saucepan and life just keeps on giving. I am reminded of Apollo 13 again – they went in their underwear – I am sure I read that somewhere years ago!

I will tell my girlfriend that when she gets home – she will understand! Then suddenly my left eye has found a new series with great reviews – it just gets better and better!

My body relaxes and I feel an uplifting rush like none I have ever felt before! Roll on happiness!

Netflix is based in Los Gatos, California and since it started with that iconic series House of Cards, it has not looked back.

The Editor and Publisher of Southwest Florida online wrote a very full review of the conspiracy novel, See Glass and said in his final comment, ‘I would imagine a screenwriter could polish See Glass off and make a very dandy film thriller.’

Will this clever political conspiracy thriller which is available on Amazon be the next Hollywood or Netflix Original hit of this year.

Time will tell!

Get your wine and saucepans ready!

The best Crime and Thriller writers in Ireland

There are many top fiction thriller and crime writers from Ireland – they are very talented, innovative and have great style.

Here I mention but a few of these new and upcoming authors to entice you.

Top Irish writers include:

Conor Brady is a great writer of historical crime. His work is evocative, enthralling and always well written and engaging. His novel I Hunt In Winter is my personal favorite.

His historical research is faultless and the detail is captivating. As Editor of the Irish Times he has a fine pedigree and you can expect only the best.

The respected Irish Times speaks very highly of Olivia Kieran. Read this writers books and you will see why. I feel that this writer will have a long and successful career as her fan base must surely expand rapidly.

Don’t miss out on her book, Too Close to Breathe

The author Gene Kerrigan writes beautiful prose set in a contemporary Ireland awash with thieves, slippery individuals and a society’s seedy underbelly laid bare. He is the author of The Rage.

Benjamin Black is a Booker Prize winner and a fine writer and his book Wolf on a String is my favourite.

The fiction from writer Ken Bruen is gritty and raw and very readable. It has the feel of classic American crime novels of yesteryear brought into the modern world.

Declan Burke is a prolific writer of crime thrillers. His fiction is well written with great plot and with a wry sense of humour on occasion. The Lost and the Blind is my personal favourite.

The John Connolly books of Charlie Parker are set in the US in Maine. Connolly is a very interesting wiriter who goes from strength t strength and I feel we will hear much more from him in the future.

He has a cocktail of horror and crime which is refreshing to read.

My favourite book from this Dublin born author is, The Woman in the Woods.

The author Sinéad Crowley has rapidly made a name for herself in the crime writing world, and rightly so! A great writer who certainly knows her craft. Her psychological crime thrillers are full of suspense and are well worth the read. My recommended read is Can Anybody Help Me?

These crime thriller writers and many other great authors are available on Amazon and in good booksellers in the following towns and cities:

The Boy from the Woods by Harlan Coben

These top fiction novels are the best of the best and are well worth a read. Many of them appear in the Washington Post bestsellers and New York Times bestsellers lists or on Amazon.

Though my main interest is in paperback books. Most of the above novels are available as audiobooks through Audible or one of the other companies or as eBooks.

Many of us are working or not at home, are taking staycations or some even holidays and we are keen to read more in our downtime.

I have tried to give you a wide selection of thriller writers work from both industry giants and relative newcomers.

Reading fiction is a great way to spend your time and to grow.

 

See Glass by Ido Graf

Sea Glass - My best fiction books 2020

The book See Glass by Ido Graf, is a fast-paced action thriller which has been described as having a style like Tom Clancy.  I agree with that but I would also say, Frederick Forsyth as both authors researched their novels in great detail,  as does Graf. They all intertwine fact with fiction giving novels of profound insight and realism.

Sea Glass is a contemporary thriller set in various exotic locations such as North America, Europe and the Middle East.

The story begins in a small Andalusian fishing village when a redundant reporter meets a former Foreign Legionnaire by chance. The story he is told appears to be fictitious, but as the journalist begins to dig deeper  …the boundaries between fact and fiction begin to blur and the danger increases.

A top story for men and women that encompasses secrets, spies, hidden Nazi gold and politicians across the northern hemisphere.

The new book See Glass by thriller, adventure, spy story writer Ido Graf has all the twists of a Nelson DeMille bestseller novel. DeMille’s Plum Island is one of my best fiction books of all time. See Glass is one of my picks for best fiction books of 2020.

Another great fiction book writer I have read recently is Ben MacIntyre. His book The Spy and the Traitor is a riveting book and another of my top fiction books to read. It’s the sort of book that would make a great contemporary film or TV series.

Many new streaming services have appeared in recent years. Film production companies  such as Metro Goldwyn Mayer and Paramount Pictures have been joined by others such as HBO, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Studios, Sky TV, Crackle and Disney+.

See Glass by Ido Graf is available now either as a paperback or as a Kindle eBook on Amazon. I understand that this novel will also be available on Audible as an audiobook in the coming two months.

The book foretold subversion of the US democracy by a President in league with right-wing groups. See the video of See Glass on Vimeo.

The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy

The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy

The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy

The Hunt for Red October was the first techno-thriller novel by Tom Clancy. It was published in 1984 by the Naval Institute Press and the U.S. President, at the time, Ronald Reagan said of it, that he had enjoyed reading the book. I’m not surprised, it’s a real page-turner.

It’s a clever plot, with a lot of detail. Russian Naval Captain Marko Ramius, who is of Lithuanian descent, is at sea with his nuclear submarine. The sub is called Red October, hence the books name, and it is bristling with state-of-the-art ballistic missiles. The submarine utilises a silent propulsion system called the caterpillar drive. This means that audio detection by passive sonar is near impossible – this is deeply concerning for the Americans.

He appears to have gone rogue.

We first see a name, Jack Ryan, which we all know now. Jack Ryan works for the Central Intelligence Agency as an analyst. Jack has a theory.  He believes that Ramius is intent on defecting to the United States.

Ramius kills the boats political officer, Ivan Putin, in case he tried to prevent him from defecting. He lies to the crew telling them that they are going to Cuba, but by this time the Russians are in hot pursuit having been notified of his plans by Ramius. The letter arrived after he had set sail.

The Russians pretend that they are on a search and rescue mission, but they will sink Red October if they have to.

As the Red October passes by Iceland whilst making its escape it comes close to the USS Dallas, a Los Angeles-class submarine. The American crew hear an unusual sound, the caterpillar drive, but they don’t initially think that it is as a submarine.

The Americans suspect the motives of the Russians and crews are on alert.

On the Dallas submarine the crew analyse the sonar tape again. They realise that what they heard was the new propulsion system of the Red October.

Jack Ryan then begins to work his magic.

Tom Clancy wrote many fantastic books in his career, but The Hunt for Red October has always been my personal favourite of his.
