We all should read every now and then. However, not all people have the time or concentration to read books, particularly when they have to spend hours of their time every day, moving from one place to another, otherwise known as commuting.
Audiobooks are the perfect solution for anyone on the go. People who prefer moving but still like books, should consider audiobooks as a way to do both. Here are the best audiobooks to listen to in 2022.
Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
Andy Weir is known for writing great books, particularly in the science fiction genre. He is also known for having great stories. The story is really interesting in this book, following an astronaut who has some issues with his memory.
The audiobook makes following the story much easier, particularly for people who find complex words troubling. It is a great book and should be listened to if you want to venture into the science fiction genre.
The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music by Dave Grohl
Dave Grohl is many things but he is definitely not uninteresting. Prior to his guitar days with the Foo Fighters, Grohl was a drummer, and he can still play the drums. Grohl played with Nirvana, up until Cobain’s death in 1994. After that Grohl went on to form the Foo Fighters, a really down to earth rock band.
This book deals with the memoirs and stories of Dave Grohl. It is not a self-help book as many of these books by famous musicians and athletes tend to be. This book should be considered as a listen, as recently, Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins passed away.
Talking to Strangers by Malcom Gladwell
Talking to Strangers is a great read or listen for those who want to learn about social interactions. A plethora of scientists, psychologists, military and civilian, as well as criminologists, were interviewed for this book.
Their expertise helps paint a very clear picture of how one can stir conflict in a conversation without even meaning to. It also helps us understand some social interactions and situations which we might find ourselves in.
1984 by George Orwell
We should always return to this book, to remind us of the times we live in. While it seemed like a distant future back in 1949 when the book was first published, that future is upon us, though not as literal as it was described in the book.
1984 is a great novel that serves as a warning of a possible totalitarian future we might find ourselves in. Give it a listen and then look around you.
These are some of the best audiobooks that you should listen to in 2022. The list can go on forever, so start with these and explore for more.
