Yes. The return of a storytelling indeed.
So delighted to read this in the New York Times today. Audio books rock, and are not just for old people. But be sure to pick the 'voice' very, very carefully. Listen to the entire sample. You're going to be 'living' with that voice for hours on end, so you'd better not find it in the least bit grating. Personally, I'm working through the slightly more dense members of the Guardian's 1,000 "Must Read" books as audio books. Last weekend's hikes allowed me to finish A Passage to India, narrated by Sam Dastor. Joyfully done. Bring it on, Audible.com!
