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?

Kinda have to agree with you here. I don't object to audio books - different strokes and all. But to release a book solely in audio format? Not really sure what the idea behind that is...

I still buy paper books - if I don't read my books on a Kindle, I sure don't want to listen to them on my iPod :headbutt:
I don't object to the length of the story; if you only take 35 pages to fill in some plot-holes, or tie up loose ends, that's fine. I'm all for compilations of short stories. It is that these are only released on audio book that I find frustrating. I just do not want to listen to a book. I guess I'll have to settle for google/wiki to fill me in on the plot developments of these stories.
