I have become a huge fan of audio books over the past year. I received a beautiful little IPod for my birthday so I am in heaven. IPods are like Barbie dolls used to be when I was young. Once you have one you have to buy them all kinds of little accessories and outfits like ISkins (gosh, what color?) and car adaptors and ...

I can listen to a book and do other things whereas my time to read is limited to evenings and then, no matter how good the book is, my eyelids grow h-e-a-v-y.

I have found my enjoyment of the book is totally dependant on the narrator's abilities. My admiration for their skill in presenting the material knows no bounds. Matching the voice with the book is another art form, I think. While trolling aroung the internet I found AudioFile's Golden Voices Hall of Fame.
