I've just started listening to the Librivox version of Princess of Mars. I'm quite happy with the quality so far, given that it's a freebie with many narrators.

It's my first full-length audiobook, I think. I normally listen to podcasts on my train journey. I have found myself missing important bits once or twice, when I've been distracted, which doesn't tend to matter with a podcast.

Really, really enjoying Raul Esparza's narration of Under the Dome. It's just close to perfect, IMO.

I really don't like the Librivox recordings, I just hate the way they go through the spiel of "This is a Librivox recording blah blah blah" at the beginning of every chapter. I could cope at the beginning and end of the book, but not that often.

It's probably 35 - 40 hours long. I'm about 20 hours in.

I didn't ever think I would like an audio book because I love to curl up with the printed word but I am currently listening to The Nine Princes of Amber series read by the author himself, Roger Zelazny. I am loving it. I have read the books dozens of times but hearing the author's interpretation has brought a freshness to the story and more admiration from me on his wonderful way with words. I have finally found a use for my IPad The speakers are great, I don't have to bother with headphones and the audio book does not run the battery down as fast as a visual book.

I just gave up on the 22-hour nonfiction opus The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration at around the 15-hour mark. A solid book, with terrific narration, but it became more about the personal lives of the southern black migrants than a commentary on sociology; I'll probably skim the rest in print at another time.

I finished the Hunger Games trilogy. Much has been said about the series, so I'll just say that I enjoyed the first two books and found the third one bizarre. The reader was excellent.

Now I'm listening to Thomas Perry's The Butcher's Boy. So far, so good.

I recently finished the three most recent Janet Evanovich books/Stephanie Plum Series (Sizzling Sixteen, Smokin' Seventeen and Explosive Eighteen). I really enjoy hearing these read. I find the dialogue even funnier when narrated by Lorelei King, I enjoy all her characterizations.

I also am making my way through all the Robert B. Parker Spenser series in audio and I have enjoyed both narrators I have heard so far. I have discovered I like these books better if I don't read them back to back but read something else in between.

I also just finished the Sue Grafton book V is for Vengeance. Having read all of Grafton's other books on paper, it was enjoyable to hear it although I could go either way for this series (paper/ebook or audio).

I agree, Lorelei King is one of the best narrators around, I just love her readings of the Stephanie Plum series.

Just finished the cast reading of Dracula. I forgot how good that book was.

Dr. Seward: Alan Cumming
Jonathan Harker: Simon Vance
Mina Murray/Harker: Katy Kellgren
Lucy Westenra: Susan Duerden
Van Helsing: Tim Curry
Steven Crossley: Zookeeper’s account and reporter
Victor Villar-Hauser: Arthur Holmwood
Marc Vietor: Quincey Morris
and many others. This isn't a dramatization, but a reading of the book in character.

That sounds like an awesome cast. Where did you get it?
