I agree with you about his voice. At first I was upset that he had
ruined some of my favorite books. However, he does improve as the
stories go along. If you can get past the first half of LITS, he's
much better, and by the time TM starts, he didn't phase me at all.
The dowloads are much cheaper, but I would recommend the MP3 CDs,
especially if you are using an iPod. The MP3 CDs have tracks that
are about 10 minutes long, so it's easy to jump ahead if you want and
if you accidentally jump ahead a track instead of fast forwarding
through the track you are listening to, it's easy to find your place
The download versions are usually several REALLY long dowloads
(usually quite a few hours that your iPod will see as one track
apiece). If you accidentally don't hold down the forward button long
enough, the iPod may think you want to skip to the next track instead
of just forwarding through the current track. Then you stuck going
through hours of the book to get back to where you were to where you
were when you hit the damn button! I have a tendency to do this, as
I listen to them while driving and it's quite frustrating. The
dowloads still work (and are nicely catagorized into "audiobooks"
instead of music, so if you put on shuffle for music you don't get a
track of the book playing instead), just know that this might be
something that happens.
I hope all of that made sense,
