It’s a slightly impossible task to choose from the 2,500 audiobooks AudioFile reviewed in 2019, with many excellent titles to choose from. This year’s lineup includes diverse, deeply personal, and timely storytelling and celebrates the skill and dedication of the narrators as well as everyone who works behind the scenes to bring us the art form of the audiobook.
