I listen to a lot of audiobooks and podcasts and here are some of my favorites. If you have any you think I might like, please let me know.
It's hard to find a book reading done by a full cast that isn't awkward to listen to, but this one is brilliantly done. And the narrator who I only discovered after listing to it is the author, has the perfect voice to set the mood for this fantasy novel.
Never has an author's voice mattered more in the telling of his story. Stephen King talks about his life and work in away that's mesmerizing. I first read this book before listening to it and the audio version is far superior for the way King emphasizes parts.
One reason I love audiobooks is they let me get through books I would never otherwise have the patience to read in text form. I think that John Adams by David McCullough is the best example of this in my life. An incredibly interesting and touching history of the United States' second president that I would never have guessed I'd be interested in.
The perfect example of the narrator making the book. While the content is mildly amusing (if somewhat inconsistent) Philip Bosco's reading makes you feel like you're in a gentleman's club, sharing a bottle of brandy with an old New York tycoon who is passing on his wisdom to the new generation.
