Can anybody recommend some good books/audio books for my upcoming road trip?
I'm going on a road trip in a couple of weeks. Altogether total to and from, I will be in the car 28 glorious hours.
Can you suggest some good books and audio books that I can listen to. Updates:
I tend to read thrillers, drama, comedy, mystery, sci-fy fantasy. Those are all good, mostly all fiction stuff. Most Helpful Guy
The Dresden Files,
Its about a wizard in chicago “Let's get something clear up front. I'm not Harry Dresden. Harry's a wizard. A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard. He's Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull, with a big leather coat and a.44 revolver in his pocket. He'll spit in the eye of gods and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done, and to hell with the consequences" The audiobooks are read by James Marsters who played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I LOVE audiobooks!
Tana French's The Likeness is a good mystery. The Haunting of Hill House was super creepy and suspenseful. Sissy Spasek reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" is the best audiobook I've ever heard. True Grit is pretty good. Lord of the Rings was fantastically done. The BBC did a dramatization of the entire Narnua series that was great, too. The Charlaine Hareis Sookie Stackhouse series is well narrated and entertaining.

The Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. just hope you aren't the one driving... you won't be able to take your eyes off the road.
I have PDFs of them if you want...
How about just talking with, and getting to know those you are with? Maybe some share some similar interests! Don't just tune out, with an opportunity like that!!
My Dad got me The invisible man, when I was younger. You could also try, Alfred Hitchcock, or even Agatha Christie, I think those would keep your mind busy. Try Amazon to see if the have them in audio.
What type of books do you like?
If you like non-fiction adventure books, I would highly recommend audio books for John Krakaur's Into the Wid and Into Thin Air. Escape by Carolyn Jessop.
What do you enjoy reading?
Hitchers's Guide to the Galaxy
I am almost finished the first book of a sci-fi series. I forget the title, but I'll co. e back after I remember lol, and the series has gone on for at least 3 or 4 books by now.
Cloaked, by Alex Flinn is a mashup of a ton of different fairy tales, set in a modern-day world. It's a really neat story, and is fairly long.
IInheritance quadrilogy by Christopher Paolini, The Harry potter books the last one sucks though, Shadow of the Dragon by Sherri Garland
The Fountainhead. The narrator is amazing
I was going to suggest hitch hikers but someone already did. If thats not your style the BBC has a ton of cool free audio books/radio shows you can load up your mp3 player with.
The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
John Grisham writes amazing books
Dean Koontz is good on road trips. Loves truck stop sells lots of audio books
List some books you have liked so I can get an idea of your taste.

Game of thrones books they are big they last a while. Diary of a wimpy kid books are fun to read
I'm currently listening to Harry Potter audio books and there excellent not to mentioned I'm obssess with harry potter world.
Roadtrip? Read The Edge of Never; awesome book about roadtrips and friendships and love.
You're probably already familiar with this, I suggest The Lord of the Rings. It's a great adventure/fantasy story in my view and since you mentioned that you're a fantasy fan I think you'll like it.
