    I can't think of why it wouldn't work as an audiobook, should be fine.

    Really enjoyed Stephen King's "Doctor Sleep".

    Danny Torrance from "The Shining" 36 years later. Like running into an old high school friend and finding out how their life went. A chilling yarn.

    Most books work on audio. Ones that don't tend to be those with a high number of characters that pop in and out throughout, or that skip around quite a bit chronologically....or ones that I need a dictionary close by if I want to understand.

    The only book that I read in 2013, and I didn't even read it all.

    Either Enders Game....

    Or Under the Dome....

    Both turned into film. One TV and one movie...both equally terrible

    I listened to it as an audiobook. No problem at all.

    I'd put it off for decades, but I finally got around to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Considering when it was written, fantastic book/story. More current writers have improved upon Tolkien IMO. Jordan most notably.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Not to spoil the ending for anyone in this one but more than half will not survive.

    Was it written by George R.R. Martin?
