I've never really been big into audiobooks. I tried listening to a romance novel on audiobook, will NEVER do that again. It felt really pervy listening to someone speak all the sexy bits. Yuck. I was NOT a fan!
However, I did listen to all the Harry Potter books on audio. Jim Dale, the narrator, was AMAZING. He's so good he's won a TON of awards for narration including two Grammys Awards. Anyway, it's been really hard to find any that compare to the Harry Potter books.
However, I recently picked up a copy of Graceling by Kristen Cashore on CD at my local library. It's a full-cast production. I'm not too far into it but I like it so far. I also read some great reviews of C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters on audio and reserved that from the library as well.
I'll probably keep the CD's in my car and listen while I drive. Might take me awhile to get through a book though, since I only have a 15 minute commute to work.
What about you all? Do you listen to audio books? If so, where and when? Can you recommend some good titles?
