Any good Audio book recommendations
Heading to the hunting lease and looking for something to listen to while in the stand.

Any recommendations?

No idea what you typically like, but I’ll push my normal answer.


Red Rising.

The narrator is the GOAT. So if you’re going audiobook definitely give it a shot.

Old Time Radio Drama -- Sort of like very short audio books

The following is a USA Today article from a couple of years ago. For anyone interested in learning about Old Time Radio it's not a bad place to start.

The web’s best kept secret? Free classic radio dramas
quote:

If you’re looking to fill up your smartphone, tablet or laptop with great content, there’s a lot more than just music, videos, ebooks, and games. Without costing a dime, there are many tens of thousands of “old time radio” shows – from the golden age of radio – available for streaming or downloading.

You might be asking yourself “Why would a future-looking technology journalist want to fill up his phone with radio dramas popularized in the ‘40s and ‘50s?” Yes, I see the irony. But you’d be pleasantly surprised at how entertaining these are – and they’ve kept me sane while commuting in a car or resting my eyes on a plane. Or, in many instances, I'm playing a game on my phone or tablet while listening to these shows at the same time.

These bite-sized old-time radio (“OTR”) shows are typically 20- to 40-minutes in length. We’re not talking audiobooks here, which are typically narrated by one person, but rather, these are well-acted radio plays, often with music and sound effects. Because you're using your imagination to "see" the characters, environments and actions, these shows feel wonderfully intimate and personal.

All audio books by Malcolm Gladwell. He narrates his own stuff.

Also, his documentary series called “Revisionist History” is fascinating.

This is worth it just for the absolute talent of Roy Dotrice. He nails all of these voices, and it's terrible that we will never get to hear him read TWOW (Dotrice died in 2017).
