I've been keeping an eye on Black Library's endeavours on Audible since they began testing the waters back in September by releasing a few Warhammer 40,000 titles on the platform.

As a huge fan of Black Library audiobooks (although less of a fan of the roughly £30.00 GBP price point per book) this was fantastic news for me. As it meant I could now get access to them at a much more reasonable price and if I don't like a book I could get a refund fairly easily.

Since December a few Horus Heresy titles were added that have now been expanded to cover most of the range. I recently put together an article on the Horus Heresy on Audible including a few pointers on how to get the most from an account.

Am interested to hear what other people think of Audible and what other books they'd like to see on there?

Chris,

I have the entire Eisenhorn Trilogy from Audible and several other long "1st of or Start of a new series" books and while I am ducking and dodging w/projects, I found Eisenhorn #1 to be Fantastic.

I have few books I purchased off BL proper for good intro rates and YES, I do make sure I get as much time for my $$$ as I can with each purchase.

Matter of fact, I suspended my Audible account for three months, as I don't have the time to listen to a book right now, but so far, it's been a very pleasant and painless experience.

Can't go wrong with the Eisenhorn trilogy, there are very few books that I will re-read and I tend to go back to this one every year or two. Just when the details start to get a bit foggy and fall in love with it all over again.

Haven't tried the audio book version, I'm a little bit afraid that the voices might not match up with what I imagined or cast well loved characters in a different light. I'll no doubt get round to it eventually once I finish catching up on the Heresy.
