    "I found the solution of Atlas Shrugged when I was searching for best narrated audiobooks. This is a well known book and is available as an audiobook but I'm not sure how to classify it as one of the best so it's a decent solution but I don't know that it's the best. "

    "I'm usually not a big fan of audiobooks, as I prefer to emphasis important bits myself in my head. But I decided to give this a try, since I've already read the book many times and have my own interpretations. It's very well done. The book is a classic for good reason, and the chosen narrator is very good at bringing it to life. "

If you're into murder and detective stories this is a good book. If you don't have the stomach for such things, it's probably not for you. I wouldn't recommend it for general readers."
