The story follows Vandyck ‘Van’ Jennings and two explorer friends as they venture out into unexplored territory in search of a lost ‘female-only society’. When they happen upon the female utopia, they are eventually captured and held within Herland.  

 What follows is a journey of epic proportions, in a beautiful otherworldly city, vividly brought to life by Gilman’s penmanship.

It is a gripping adventure with a stunning depth of world-building, character design, and powerful social commentary.

Narrated by Adjoa Andoh 

Rediscover one of the greatest love stories of all time as ‘Bridgerton’ actress Adjoa Andoh  delivers a captivating performance, bringing the characters to life 

Without a male heir, the Bennett family risks losing their entire fortune when the patron, Mr. Bennett, passes. To save the family, the sisters must marry – and most importantly, marry well. It is in this predicament that we find the smart and spirited Elizabeth Bennet. Despite pressure from her family, Elizabeth is determined to live and marry on her own terms. The arrival of the haughty, wealthy Mr. Darcy who is impervious to her charms, begins a timeless comedy of manners, and endless drama, where first impressions are just not what they seemed. 

‘Pride and Prejudice’ is a cult classic, with over twenty million copies sold, and numerous screen adaptations, most notably the Oscar-nominated film starring Keira Knightley.  

The Yellow Wallpaper (Premium) by Charlotte Perkins Gilman 

Format: Audiobook 
ISBN: 9788726988406 
Narrated by Rosy McEwen 

Take a listen to this timeless classic with a masterful narration 

‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ follows a series of journal entries made by a woman diagnosed with hysterical tendencies by her doctor’s husband. Prohibited from working or writing, she is confined to the nursery of an old New England Colonial mansion to recuperate. Trapped in this room with barred windows and sickly yellow wallpaper, the narrator begins to feel the room come alive and evolve around her.  

The wallpaper is animate, shifting and writhing, changing before her in the moonlight. There has to be someone in the walls – she knows it.  

This classic has gone on to inspire numerous plays, films, and TV adaptations such as an episode of the Twilight Zone “Something in the Walls”. This story highlights the struggle women face in a man’s world, where their few rights can only allow them to write. This is a must-read for any Sylvia Plath fans.
