Roadtrip Audio Books
Any suggestions for audiobooks to listen to in the car on a road trip with wife? We will be driving 10.5 hrs to Asheville, NC on Monday.

I've recently read ASOIAF, Lonesome Dove Series, Kingkiller Chronicle, 1st 2 books of Stormlight Archive.

I don't think my wife would be enthused with those books.

Maybe DaVinci Code?

55 hour audiobook for #3. That might cover your trip, twice.

How about the First Law Trilogy? Good narration and great story.

Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Series or his Arthur series.

Gresham's "Playing for Pizza" is delightful. One of his few non legal works. Summary: Washed up Pro football QB signs with team in Italy. Only 3 US players per team and no one but US players get paid. Really a good listen.

I just listened to Baldacci’s The Christmas Train.

Very good book for a couple.

In no way does the DaVinci code audiobook last even half that car ride.

re: Roadtrip Audio Books
You could try Master and Commander. I really enjoy the whole series (20 books) but surprisingly my wife liked it even more than I did. It's really much more about the relationship of Aubrey and Maturin (and the rest of the crew, and their women/families) than it is about battles and action. The great thing is if she likes it then you are set for a very long time. The second book Post Captain is almost more a Jane Austen novel than a book of naval warfare.

Gone Girl is a great listen.
