Audio dramatizations and narrations of the Aubrey/Maturin series
The webmaster's dirty little secret is that he listened to the entire A/M series on tape before reading them. Twice. If your notion of audiobooks is having your kindergarten teacher read to you in a monotone to get you to take a nap, you will definitely be surprised by modern audiobooks, which are more acting than reading. The best audiobook narrators do accents, inflections and really make the words come alive. It's a great way to make any drive just fly by.
