Well I don't know if this is the right section here..

but I have an account at Audible (amazon.de)

You can buy Talking Books there... and well i paid this every month for a long time but didn't use it... so I got now 10 credits (can buy 10 talking books)


someone know some nice books / talking books i could buy there?

I don't really care about the genre... but i like things which are exciting or horror (no love stories or funny things)

Let me know! =)

Can be new or old! Will donate fg for good things mentioned

fyi the english word you're looking for is audiobook.

i really like the english narrations of these books. dunno if you're buying english narrations or not.

harry potter (stephen fry for uk version, jim dale for us)
magic 2.0 series (nerdy/comedy for people who grew up in the 90s)
ready player one (nerdy/comedy for people who grew up in the 80s, narrated by wil wheaton of star trek TNG)
neil gaiman american gods
stephen king's IT / stand / 11-22-63
alien out of the shadows (dramatization)
grimnoir chronicles by larry correia (urban fantasy)
if you're a doctor who fan, david tennant (10) performs some radio dramas

i haven't read it, but since you like horror, check out nos4a2 (nos4r2 in uk) narrated by kate mulgrew from star trek voyager

i suggest talking to customer support and trying to get a refund for as many of those credits as you can. if you wait too long, they won't do it, but you can always buy new credits later.

An audiobook series that I have always found fantastic for story telling is

Mistborn by Brandon Standerson (The final empire being the first book)
The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson (The way of kings being the first book)

Both are available on Audible

oh ya I have an audible account too...

I listen to a TON of books...

as Oondin said mistborn and stormlight are amazing. Stormlight imo is the best series ive ever listened to.

mistborn
stormlight archives
black prism
enders game
name of the wind
the blade itself
Prince of thorns (great series)
magicians (meh -- very controversial -- tv show on it tho)
harry potter
wheel of time (big commitment - 14 books @ 50hrs each)
dresden files (more modern - less heroic)
the way of shadows (good!)
heroes die (gives alot of goosebumps)
lies of locke lamora (awesome series!)
the reckoners (superman? - good - modern time setting)
warded man


ive weeded out all the trash ive listened to. these are my top picks for sure and would be a great list to get started on that might last a few years!
