So far our best listening experience has been To Say Nothing of the Dog. It’s unlikely we’ll find something else as amazing as that. We also enjoy Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and The Splendid Table, but in short doses. DH listened to Lincoln: Team of Rivals during one trip, but I found it mildly annoying. DC1 liked Alcatraz books by Brandon Sanderson, and they’re ok, but not that compelling. The first Iron Druid was pretty interesting, but they’re getting too dark for me and also there’s way too much sex for comfortable listening with the kids in the back.
- It doesn’t have to be interesting to children, but it does have to be appropriate for children listening (age 4 and age 9).
- We don’t really want tragedy or senseless violence etc. Something upbeat or uplifting or funny would be better.
Any recommendations? What do you listen to on long drives?
