Book series

Recommended Posts

Need some recommendations for book series for the wife, ideally ones that are in audiobook format.

Currently she has listened to:

A Song of Fire and Ice

The Dark Tower

Magic Kingdom of Landover

I have The Hunger Games trilogy lined up for her next, but looking for other ideas for book series, if you can give some indication of what genre it is as well it would help.

For a change of pace, the Underworld USA Trilogy by James Ellroy. It's a series that goes from 1958 - 1973 in the US and covers all the major stuff like the kennedy and MLK assassinations, 'nam, etc.

It's sharp, fast and furious and a wicked read. He doesn't use long flowery sentences, just powers through. He also blends the historic facts with fiction to fill in the behind the scenes details. Well worth a look. I first got into it abojut five years ago, on this very forum, on me and Pete's short-lived book club http://aberdeen-music.com/threads/team-spoonie-and-petes-readathon-forum.26764/

Good times!

The Ellroy books are immense.

If she's into fantasy then Raymond E Feist is well worth a look. Start with the Magician and work through the Riftwar saga onwards.

I love Trudi Canavan's books, especially The Magicians Guild series. Alan Campbell is a fab too - Scar Night, Iron Angel and God of Clocks.
