Dare I say I’ve known several people who have said exactly the same thing… who have since become big audiobook fans? it’s an acquired taste maybe, and there’s absolutely no reason why one should be forced to think they need to acquire it – but it’s made a huge different to my reading habits, especially when it comes to catching up with authors’ backlists. Because there’s often a time delay between a book coming out in print/eformat and audio, I’ve been able to listen to books I might otherwise never have got around to reading, and that’s a massive plus for me. As the OP said, the right narrator can make a huge difference to a story; they can’t make silk purses out of sows’ ears, but when the mix is right, he or she can elevate a good book to another level.
