really expensive for 60 minutes of biased imagination, reading a book gives your imagination way more freedom, futhermore 60 minutes is typically not enough to build up a decent story,

Indeed. I feel I can't stop an audio either without losing track slightly of what's happened when I start it again, unlike a book.

But mostly, I just can't stand the voice acting, the sound effects in the background and can just never get to grips with something being described to me like they do. The last one I listened to was Sword of Truth. Garro sounds constipated, Hakim just sounds awful as some generic Asian and sometimes quite hard to understand, and lets not forget Varren, who sounds like some London gangster.

Exactly... by the time a piece of information is dropped and I have processed it and made connections to the overall story, and other story points from other books, I have gone and missed the last few seconds of important dialogue. So I am constantly rewinding the audio to listen to shit. It is all just beyond frustrating, I JUST WANT A DAMN BOOK...
