Fantasy audio book suggestions please?

Post by TokiyoRio »

About to do two 18hr bus trips in one week. I get carsick very easily so would like some audio book ideas.

Love me some high fantasy (i think thats the name for it?) and have read some of the common ones, obviously LotR, Song of Ice and Fire, most of Discworld, David Eddings, Patrick Rothfuss... That's the sort of vibe I'm after. A series would be cool as I have plenty of time.

The last thing is that since I'm looking for audio, if you have suggestions of specific readings that are well done that would be cool. Not a huge fan if the super dramatized thing but enjoy a reader who can do different character voices.

Thanks in advance

“His Dark Materials” by Phillip Pullman is amazingly immersive and may be just what you’re looking for! It’s a great series to read on a long journey.

I've heard that the Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter and Stephen King reading his Dark Tower series is really good
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” HST

Amazing thread. I look forward to new posts. :)
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

"Throne of Glass" and "A Court of Thorns and Roses" by Sarah J Mass are two phenomenal series that I cannot recommend enough. The narrators for both series are astounding.
I also recommend the "All Souls Trilogy" by Deborah Harkness.
All of these can be found on Audible.

Both authors are great, for very different reasons. Deborah Harkness is a historian, so hers is detailed and historically-oriented writing. Sarah J. Mass tends to write more in the vein of the secondary-world fantasy of Patrick Rothfuss or David Eddings.

If you're keen on audio series, Garth Nix's Abhorsen trilogy is beautifully narrated by Tim Curry and worth your while.
