I've had terrible luck with audio books after finishing up the Discworld series earlier this year. I decided to tackle The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I loved the first book, but after that, the way Douglas Adams was clearly just making things up as he went along and the way he would constantly stall for time when he couldn't think of what should happen next quickly started driving me nuts. It didn't help that Martin Freeman did an awful job as a narrator, either.
Despite all that, I thought I'd listen to the Artemis Fowl series next, since Eoin Colfer wrote the final Hitchhiker's novel. I realized less than an hour into the first book that I'd made a huge mistake, but I still trudged through the first three novels because I'd bought them and by God, I was going to get my money's worth (I didn't realize until I had two hours left of the third book that Audible has a 'great listen' guarantee, but oh well).
After that, I discovered that Tina Fey's Bossypants was available on Audible (it hadn't been the last time I'd checked). And it was good! Finally!
I'm currently listening to the Hunger Games trilogy, and... it started out so well. I loved the first two books, and I thought people were probably exaggerating about the third one, but man. It has been completely horrible so far. I have no idea how Suzanne Collins managed to drop the ball this badly. I only have four chapters left, so I should have this wrapped up tomorrow, thank God.
I'm not sure what to listen to next. I've been toying with the idea of listening to Stephen King's It, but it's 45 hours long, and my luck hasn't exactly been the best lately.
Edit: Decided to go with Amy Poehler's Yes Please as a palette cleanser. I'm pretty sure no one's going to get their head cut off or get blown to bits in that book. Well, I guess you never know with Amy Poehler.
