Fantasy audio book suggestions please?

Post by TokiyoRio » 11 Sep 2019, 13:40

About to do two 18hr bus trips in one week. I get carsick very easily so would like some audio book ideas.

Love me some high fantasy (i think thats the name for it?) and have read some of the common ones, obviously LotR, Song of Ice and Fire, most of Discworld, David Eddings, Patrick Rothfuss... That's the sort of vibe I'm after. A series would be cool as I have plenty of time.

The last thing is that since I'm looking for audio, if you have suggestions of specific readings that are well done that would be cool. Not a huge fan if the super dramatized thing but enjoy a reader who can do different character voices.

Thanks in advance

“His Dark Materials” by Phillip Pullman is amazingly immersive and may be just what you’re looking for! It’s a great series to read on a long journey.

I've heard that the Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter and Stephen King reading his Dark Tower series is really good

Amazing thread. I look forward to new posts. :)
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Emily Dickinson
