Outpost by Dan Richards, Read by the Author
Take a Wander Across the World via Audiobook
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Dan Richards narrates his audiobook, Outpost, in a clear English accent that often sounds as if he’s telling the story on a late evening in a pub. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff talk about Richards’s self-effacing, witty, and intimate narration as he tells listeners about the value of remote and often romantic places. Much is to be learned and considered in his wandering to northernmost Norway, Iceland, Scotland, to the Mars Project, and to Desolation Peak.
