I like Name of the Wind as narrated by Rupert Degas -
Anything Abercrombie as read by Steven Pacey-
Blood Song works well in audio and is probably my favourite book this year.

Anything by Aastair Reynolds that is narrated by John Lee is good.
The Dresden books are good in audio.

So...Y'Ghatan made you need to do your Laundry with a capital "L"? Can't say I messed my own pants reading that part but it was horrific.

I don't think anyone lives in the opera house.
