Are those books worth reading? I'm looking for some good audio books for the long(er) work commute from our house.

How much interest is there in World without End? I can bring my copy and we can have two tables going at the same time if need be.

Pillars was a decent book. I thought the first 3/4ths of the book was entertaining, the last 1/4th dragged and was little boring.

My two favorite authors are, no surprises, George RR Martin and Tolkien. I love the Song of Ice & Fire series. I couldn't make it through Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, and I gave up mid-way through the first book in the Malazan Book of the Fallen series.

I also like to read history books. cool

I really enjoyed the Follett books and they are very good audio book productions.

For Historical Fiction I recommend anything by Edward Rutherfurd, though they will take you an age to finish...

New Fantasy books Ive gotten into which I can recommend; (There is so much crap fantasy) I really enjoyed the Kingkiller Chronicles (Though the audio book reader for this one was horrific he almost put me off it) I also after reading The Way of Kings have been entertained by Brandon Sanderson's work. I picked up Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy and have been having a good time with it.

The other audio book series I had fun with was the wizard detective harry dresden. "The Dresden Files" Mix your average fantasy book and your average mystery paperback put them in a blender and get above average results. The reader for this on audio does a really great job of capturing the wizard noir feel. :)

None of these are high literature but very entertaining summer page turners.

I recommend Dan Abnett's Eisenhorn and Ravenor omnibuses. Not medieval themed fantasy, also not particularly new, so I don't know if that invalidates the recommendation or not. Not the best, certainly. Also, not nearly the worst.

Reviews can be found here and here.
