5 Audiobooks for Blockbuster Binge-Listening

Becca Stumpf By Becca Stumpf

Whether you are a “read the book before the movie” person or more a “movie first, book for dessert” type, the audiobook editions of this season’s blockbuster movies and streaming releases are well worth a listen. Read on to hear clips from Killers of the Flower Moon, Lessons in Chemistry, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Wonka releases December 15!), and more.

Killers of the Flower Moon

Martin Scorsese doesn’t direct the adaptation of just any book. One of the most anticipated films of the fall, Killers of the Flower Moon is based on David Grann’s #1 New York Times bestseller, a twisted, true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history. Watch the trailer below, then listen to a clip of the audiobook narrated by Will Patton, Ann Marie Lee, and Danny Campbell.
