I'm looking for some great audiobooks to fill my ears over the summer. And by a great audiobook, I mean a good book with a good narrator. While the quality of narration is in the ear of the listener, your good opinion is what I am looking for.
Examples of Audiobooks I have Enjoyed:
A Song of Ice and Fire -- GRRM - Dotrice's narration is brilliant (Book 4 with John Lee, not so much)
Blackout/All Clear - Connie Willis - I love the female narrator in this book (great book, too),
The Black Company - this was surprisingly well narrated
Neil Gaiman -- anything he actually narrates I will listen to. It's a shame that most of his books are read by others
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Simon Prebble is a great narrator (the book itself is somewhat overrated)
1776 - David McCullough. I could listen to McCullough narrate anything
**Any good US Civil War audio books, history or historical fiction to recommend?
I am profoundly disappointed that Shelby Foote passed away before recording his Civil War series as audiobooks. That would have been Ear Food to treasure.
Aubrey/Maturin Series - Patrick O' Brien - brilliant audiobook series, brilliant narration.
Christopher Hitchens - brilliant writer, brilliant narrator. I've listened to almost everything he ever recorded.
Anyhow, you get the idea. Genres I prefer are Fantasy, SF, historical fiction, history and modern politics.
