As some of you may have heard, I'm going on a cross-country road trip from Chicago to San Francisco soon. Considering it's about 36-38 hours of driving (one way!) I get the feeling that, at some point, music and podcasts aren't gonna cut it.
In my experience with long drives, audiobooks and radio plays can help the time go by a lot faster, because you're invested in a story, so I think I might download some before we go.
Do you guys listen to audiobooks? Can you recommend some of the better ones? I'm not just asking for good books, I want to know which audiobooks are REALLY superior, either due to an excellent reader or by taking advantage of the format. I've heard that World War Z, Stephen Colbert, and John Hodgman do this well. Can anyone confirm that or offer any other suggestions? Thanks guys!
