Perfect audiobooks for your summer getaway

Lie back and listen along to some of our favourite books of the summer, brought to life by brilliant narrators. 


Audiobooks are the perfect summer indulgence. They make road trips fly by, and once you've reached your destination, having a narrator bring an engrossing memoir or a thrilling caper to life leaves you with one hand free for a cold drink, and the other for idle fanning by the pool. Bliss. You won't know how you survived without an audiobook the rest of the year.

Penguin pick: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, read by Elisabeth Moss
