Voices on the Road Blog Tour & Giveaway

Blog_LoveAudiobooks

I love audiobooks! I have an hour long commute to and from work, and they keep me sane during the long drive and the time stuck in traffic. I also love listening on long drives to visit my family out of state. Whether you are a long time audiobook fan, or just trying to decide if they might be for you, here are a few of my favorites for you to check out. Then be sure to enter for a chance to win some new audiobooks to add to (or start) your collection.

1. The Entire Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling, read by Jim Dale

862267

Even if you have tried audiobooks and decided that they are not for you, please give this series a try. Jim Dale is my favorite audiobook narrator, and his work on the Harry Potter books is outstanding. How one person can do so many voices and keep them all straight is beyond me, but it is a pleasure to listen to. I may have said this in an earlier post at some point, but I would gladly listen to Jim reading the phone book. He’s just that good.

2. Poirot’s Early Cases by Agatha Christie, read by Hugh Fraser and David Suchet

16330If you happen to be a fan of the BBC Poirot series, then you are in for a treat. This book contains 18 stories, and they are alternately read by Hugh Fraser, who plays Captain Hastings, and David Suchet, who plays Poirot. Both do an excellent job, and the familiar voices make this a perfect listen for any Agatha Christie fan.

3. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, read by Jon Linstrom

27833673

Dark Matter is a sci-fi thriller full of unexpected twists and turns, terribly believable science, and a surprising amount of real emotion thrown in to keep you off your guard. Jon Linstrom did a great job of keeping the story flowing, the suspense high, and letting you feel what the protagonist, Jason, was feeling. I expected to like this book, but I ended up loving it.

4. The Seventh Plague by James Rollins, read by Christian Baskous

Is action adventure your thing? Christian Baskous narrates several of  James Rollins’ Sigma Force novels, and I really enjoy his style. His smooth voice always fits perfectly with the action-packed story-lines.

5. Storm Front by Jim Butcher, read by James Marsters

A perfect start to a great urban fantasy series – Storm Front is still one of my favorite Harry Dresden novels. James Marsters is perfect as the voice of Harry, with just the right amount of sarcasm where appropriate. I thoroughly enjoy his narration of this series.
