I love to read but also love to listen to audio books from my ipod as I drive and do housework. However, I find that an audio book has to be less detailed and easier to follow than a regular book since I tend to lose the plot when there are too many characters and situations and I can’t refer back through the pages.
In other words, fast moving where I can be distracted for a moment but can pick it back up pretty easily.
My favorites so far have been Memoirs of a Gesha and Secret Life of Bees and I just listened to Water for Elephants which totally fit the bill. Mysteries are out unless they are easy to follow. I love reading them but I got lost too fast when I am listening. I do not like romance either and it is always an added bonus when the narrator does a good job.
Anyone have anything that have listened to that they would recommend? Since my commute is a long one, many suggestions would be most appreciated.
