I won’t belabor my current obsession with Jim Dale’s rendering of the Harry Potter books because both version are stellar.
One of my favorite non-fiction books, Girls Like Us, is better as audio. It’s so densely packed with interesting stories about King, Mitchell, and Simon and the cultural of the US musical scenes of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, that it is easier to savor as a listen.
Circe is also better experienced as a listen. The narrator is perhaps the best I’ve ever heard.
I am a speed reader so audio is so much vastly slower for me than reading–maybe ten times. Easy reads are less appealing to me as listens because I just. don’t. have. the. time.
