I am about halfway through the audio version of J. Bradford Delong’s _Slouching Toward Utopia and I am really enjoying it. My only complaint is that the narrator sounds very similar to the person who reads the Diary Of a Wimpy Kid audiobooks that my kids are constantly listening to on Hoopla, to the point that I looked him up to see if it was the same person (it is not).
I wish more authors read their own audiobooks. It is not for everyone, I suppose, but I tend to enjoy an audiobook a lot more when it is the actual author reading it. I should note that my opinion here is limited to nonfiction; I mostly don’t like listening to fiction audiobooks and generally avoid them.
