The Stamp of Genius
We at Brainfood Audiobooks have been listening to audiobooks for well over 30 years. In our experience the greatest audiobooks are those that we come back to again and again. So, if you're looking for something different or just a view of what we at Brainfood Audiobooks consider to be the very best audiobooks we have ever encountered these are they.
These are audiobooks that break through the barriers of the genre and, through the audio format, show the stamp of genius.
We at Brainfood Audiobooks are constantly listening to a wide variety of titles, on all media types, and it has become clear, over the many years we have been listening, that a few titles stand out as possessing that extraordinary quality - a great story/text, a great performance and wide appeal!
Below we have a selection of these titles - which will, occasionally, grow as we listen to more titles but will definitely reduce as the books are purchased.
If anyone has a suggestion for this list please send us a message via the form on the left of this page.
