Do you, like me, drive far to work, to friends or to family? Have you become bored reading the same billboards and long for something fun and entertaining to help you pass the time?
Allow me to introduce my vote for best driving entertainment ever! Mr. Simon Vance. Mr. Vance is the narrator for a variety of books. Whenever I'm unable to come up with a title to listen to, I look for the titles done by Mr. Vance. I have not been disappointed yet!
Here are some of my favorite books done by Mr. Vance. I hope you enjoy them as well.
Thomas Penn re-creates an England that is both familiar and very strange, a country medieval yet modern, in which honor and chivalry mingle with espionage, realpolitik, high finance, and corruption.

He hires crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist, recently at the wrong end of a libel case, to get to the bottom of Harriet's disappearance.
Monty Python's Tunisian Holiday by Kim Johnson

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
An incredibly handsome young man in Victorian England retains his youthful appearance over the years while his portrait reflects both his age and evil soul as he pursues a life of decadence and corruption.
