Quotes & Awards

  • “Each story is very unique…Each story is just shy of an hour in length, save for a few, but packs enough punch to immediately draw you in and immediately forces you to want to know more of each and every story…The narrators definitely knocked it out of the park. Each narrator does such an excellent job basically taking you in from the cold and wrapping you in a warm blanket of their voices. If you’re a fan of audiobooks, you know the importance of an excellent narrator, and The Long List Anthology is not missing a single one…You can easily listen to one story a day or you can be like me and get sucked into the excellent storytelling and narration and listen to it in one go.”
