I recently became a convert to audiobooks, since I wanted something that would last the Aust->Uk->Aust round trip and keep me entertained on the plane.
Anyway, I just finished the first audiobook I have tried, “Good Omens” by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett (on a recommendation from someone here). I liked it a lot, and I get the feeling that it may well have been improved by being in audiobook form.
So I am looking for other good audiobooks. The reason I say “good audiobooks” and not just “good books” is because I don’t think all books would translate well to the audiobook form, and perhaps more importantly, I don’t think a lot of audiobooks are narrated very well. It took me a long time when I was going through the audible.com website the first time, as the narration in a lot of the samples was enough to turn me off from going any further.
So I wonder, for those of you who have been listening to audiobooks for some time, if you can recommend some good audiobooks where the narration either doesn’t get in the way or actually improves the original storyline.
If it matters, I will be doing most of my listening driving to and from work in 20-30 minute bursts.
