Manchester readers love audiobooks and you’ve got great taste. This month the top downloaded audiobook for adults is international bestseller and winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize, The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton, a breathtaking feat of storytelling where everything is connected, but nothing is as it seems.

‘A dream novel: stellar in every way.’  — The Economist

‘Addictive and very clever.’  — The Times

What else is in the top five of the most downloaded audiobooks in Manchester?
