Longest audio book? Seveneves is 96 hours long!
I just preordered Neal Stephenson's new book Seveneves and it is 96 hours, 18 minutes long. My commute is about 100 minutes a day, so it will take over 2 1/2 months to get through it. And it is only one credit on Audible! I have read a few books in the 40 hour range, but wow. Available May 19th at Audible.

I think the only audiobook possibly longer than that would be a Bible.
Seems extraordinarily long when compared to other books with higher page counts. I know page count isn't everything and can be manipulated by the publisher, but long books like Atlas Shrugged which has a huge page count even in editions with super small type sizes is like 30 hours shorter than this. A Dance with Dragons is huge and nowhere near this long either.
EDIT: According to the publisher of the audiobook Seveneves is 32 hours unabridged, not the 96+ hours Audible says.
This seems more realistic given the books advertised page count.
