Audiobooks? Really?

This is about Audio only books. Just a question like, but is the world a blind 7 year old?

If so, what's the point in an Audiobook. With the Aenarion "book" being released this October, I'm heavily pissed off that I have to read about one of the best characters in history, ranking alongside Nagash and Morkar, with it in my ear (I do mean Indraugnir, btw).

Like I said, I'm a bit pissed off that I, and the Black Library can't be more adult about reading material in this manner. Hell, I like listening to music/tv as I read - and it is a bit shit that I can't do both.

Am I the only one who feels that way?

The amount of opposition these audiobooks have drawn, im really suprised BL insists on continuing formating very important and vital plots as audios. Im with you Vaz on the whole Aenarion/Indraugnir thing, such vital and important characters in the history of the Warhammer World are being covered in audio format, something we have to listen to rather than read, its just frustrating really. The voice acting will probably be terrible (like most other BL audios, admittedly not all though, Throne of Lies' voice acting was decent enough).

Not only are they more expensive, around twice as expensive as BL books cost, but most people seem to prefer written format. Why not just please everyone and release the tales in both formats? Bah.
