Holiday Travel: Great Audio Books

We looked at audio books in June (which is audio book month) but with many people hitting the roads this weekend to spend the holidays elsewhere, here are some other good ones to listen to.

    

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. These work great in audio, especially the early ones, which are narrated by Anne Hathaway. This is meta-hilarious in the later books when she complains about the movie versions of her life.

The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. Told in two voices, this has two narrators, which makes Sadie and Carter's back-and-forth work even better in audio than in print.

Redwall by Brian Jacques. A little on the young side of YA, this full cast audio (narrated by Jacques himself) is a great all-ages family roadtrip listen.

    

The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien. If you struggle through all the ballads or the Elvish passages, audio might be the way to go on this one!

White Cat by Holly Black. Mainly because it's narrated by Jesse Eisenberg.

Sabriel by Garth Nix. Let's face it-- if Tim Curry had an audio book version of the phone book, I'd put it on this list.

What are your favorite audios?
