    Default Books of sound

    or Audiobooks for the Busy Long-Distance Runner.

    I tried looking into getting free audiobooks recently e.g. by looking at what was on offer for a book written by Dumas the father (although he probably didn't write it all himself). The one I tried sounded like a Welshman impersonating French accents, and so I wasn't too impressed. As a Snob, it is very important to me that I don't hear Mrs Dalloway for example in some gruff alien tongue. When looking (but not hearing) War and Peace, it looked there were several different readers, which is somewhat understandable, but that would probably be too much to take.

    Does anyone hear audiobooks? Do they have any insights? I suppose buying some with the use of money may be the answer.

    I would love to have a War and Peace audiobook read by Tim Curry.

    All my audiobooks are Anne Rice novels. I also have LOTR but it is abridged. I have trouble concentrating so it's better if I just read a book. There is a site where I used to use to get them but I can't find it at the moment. The voices were smooth and pleasant from what I remember.

    This was actually pretty decent in audio format.
