  1. I love Bill Bryson on audio and Bonesetter's Daughter was really good too. I've listened to DeMille, but not that one. And, yes, Middlesex -- ahhhhhh. My top audiobook until I listened to Wicked, Lovely.

  2. I definitely want to read Cutting for Stone soon... just can't decide between the book and the audio!

  3. I haven't listened to The Gold Coast, but I do like some of Nelson Demille's other audiobooks. The Lion's Game, read by Scott Brick, was one of the first audiobooks that I fell in love with.

  4. The Help by Katheryn Stockett was an amazing audio book. I so have a few urban fantasy authors I love on audio.

  5. I love these lists!! I just requested 2 playaways from my library. Hopefully when I get my iTouch it will be easier to download the CD's to it!!

  6. I have to say, I was not enthralled with "Cutting for Stone" in audio. The production was good, but I don't think it is a book that lends itself particularly well to audio, with the way it jumps back and forth in time.

  7. Great list! I've read several of those books but haven't experienced any of them in audio.

  8. The Book Thief is on my TBR. I'm considering trying the audiobook. Your list has many appealing titles.

  9. I've read somewhere that Cutting For Stone was fantastic on audio.

  10. I am listening to the Unnamed right now on Audio and it is great! I also like Bryson and Sedaris on audio - they are excellent.

    thanks for your list - I will have to put these on my wish list!
