I know I try to stay away from posting all the best lists here on the blog because they are available so many other places and I want to make the time you spend here as useful as possible, but I have noticed that very few places make a point to talk about the best audio books in their year end wrap ups.
Please remember that the best books from the more traditional lists are not necessarily books that will automatically translate into best audiobooks. And in fact, many books that are only so-so in print are greatly enhanced by being turned into an exceptional audio version while many great books have been ruined by bad audio productions.
