In addition to music and podcasts, Spotify has increasingly become a destination for audiobooks. In order to listen to these audiobooks you’ll need a free Spotify account. You can listen for free with occasional ads, and they also have Spotify apps for easier listening on your computer or smart phone. If you want to listen ad-free and you love music as well, we can’t recommend Spotify Premium highly enough.

One of the issues with Spotify and audio books is finding the best audio books they have to offer. We’ve scoured through Spotify to find the highest quality audio books you can learn from and below we’ll list the publishers that have added many of their titles to Spotify. Browse through these publishers on our site and find some great audio books to listen to on Spotify today!

Note: It’s come to our attention that free users of Spotify can no longer play albums or playlists in order on mobile. Spotify mobile apps force free users to play in shuffle mode. Pretty annoying for audiobooks! If you’re not a Spotify Premium user and you want to play these audiobooks in order, you’ll need to play them on your desktop or tablet. Sorry!

The Best Librivox Narrators

Librivox.org continues to be the best resource for free audio books online. Since 2005, Librivox volunteers have now narrated over 14,000 public domain titles with over 8,000 readers! Their community has not only recorded almost every great work of classic literature, but they’ve dug deep into the public domain, narrating titles that might otherwise never have made it onto audio book. Because of their open copyright, their audio books have been distributed through many sites and apps (including our own). And thanks to Archive.org, the hosting of these audio books is free.

While we love any reader who volunteers their time to narrate unabridged audio books, some of the readers at Librivox stand out above the rest, both in terms of the quality of their narration and the technical quality of the recording. To further help you find the best Librivox audio books, we’ve assembled this short list of “The Best Librivox Narrators” and some of their top solo recordings. We’ve come up with this list after sampling thousands of their audio books over the years. Also most Librivox audio books are up on YouTube now, and we’ve gone through the comments of these videos to see which narrators listeners enjoy the most.

Below are our top 15 Librivox narrators in no particular order of greatness. We’ve included some of their top solo narrations below their name and we’re linking to their websites if they have provided ones on Librivox. For a number of these narrators their efforts at Librivox have lead to narrating audio books professionally for titles on Audible.com. Below we’re linking to their top titles on our site.

H.G. Wells Audio Books & Short Stories

Also for an introduction to the science fiction of H.G. Wells, check out this lecture from The Great Courses:

H.G. Wells and Utopian Science Fiction

This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called Great Utopian and Dystopian Works of Literature taught by Professor Pamela Bedore, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to The Great Courses Plus.

The final decades of the 19th century saw the birth and development of science fiction as a new literary genre, with the concept of utopia in particular being a favorite subject of early writers. In this free Great Course lecture, Literature Professor Pamela Bedore focuses on two books by science fiction forefather H.G. Wells that ask the question: is imagining a utopia inherently a part of science fiction? Using both Wells’ classic The Time Machine and a lesser known work called A Modern Utopia as her texts, Professor Bedore demonstrates how science fiction can be utilized to explore how current societies might evolve if certain trends predominate, leading to interesting utopian futures that sometimes look positive on the surface, but often come with hidden costs.

For more science fiction from H.G. Wells try out The War of the Worlds:

On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles directed and narrated his War of the Worlds radio drama. In 1938, the realistic news bulletins that began the broadcast suggested to many listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. Listen to this dramatization of the most famous alien-invasion story of all time. This broadcast is available on YouTube through the Newseum (interactive museum of news and journalism) channel.

The War of the Worlds (1938 Radio Broadcast)
