I keep forgetting my library. It's been a while since I've checked, and they have audiobooks as well as Kindle books. I'll have to look into that.

I've got Jane Eyre with Juliet Stevenson as reader. It's in my "To Read" pile. I have the sense that I was never overfond of Jane Eyre, but I think maybe it's Wuthering Heights I didn't much care for. Did you enjoy it?

My favorite Bronte book is by sister Anne. I listened to "Agnes Grey" read by the very excellent Nadia May.

I can listen to Jane Austen's books over and over again.

Do you like the "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency [Unabridged, Audiobook]" series? I find it very similar to the Jeeves and Wooster books, light reading and amusing. I really like the narrator. I was reluctant to start it, but once I did I was charmed and listened my way through the entire series.

A bad book can be even worse in audio, though. I remember threatening to scream the next time I heard a word some author was particularly fond of. In books I can skim over without noticing. In audiobooks, it stands out like a particularly annoying squawk and hurts my ears.

You might want to check out the Audible site even if you don't join it. It might give you ideas about well regarded narrators. I think there are some audio book groups on Goodreads, too.
