orson scott card's ender's game is awesome.
i like the dune series as well.
i really do not like audio books, but hearing it in the author's own voice might be something cool. i might have to check that out.
You totally have to! Douglas Adams is hilarious and delightful! I have "The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul" and "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" on cassette tapes (both by Douglas Adams) and a CD of DA reading from the Hitch hiker's Guide (an abridged version). My brother has the entire Hitch hiker's series with DA reading, all on casette tapes. He let me borrow them for a while and I could listen to them over and over
. He guards those tapes with his life
I'm really not an audiobook person either, but DA is a fantastic exception IMHO.
