What to Listen to on that Road Trip


Summer is here. The kids are out of school (or will be soon). It's time to hit the road. The library theme for the summer is "Go!" and our summer reading clubs all have a travel theme. And I am taking my family on vacation soon. 

With hours in the car I always look for that perfect audiobook that we can all enjoy. It might be a futile effort but I try. This year there will be three generations traveling together in with ages ranging from 7 to 70. Here are a few titles that appeal to a wide range of people.

The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
Coraline by Neil Gaiman (also Gaiman's the Graveyard book)
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.
Hatchet by Gary Paulsen
Hoot by Carl Hiaasen

As you can see, most of these are kids books that or good for adults too. What I would really like is a couple of adult books that would still be appropriate and also engaging to a kid. Got any ideas?

The first two books in the Harry Potter series might work. Not too long and the reader (Jim Dale) is exceptional.
