Myself as well as my mom have been listening to some of Ron L. Hubbard's classic novels on CD's from Galaxy Press which have been made into CD's which are much more like movies than average "book's on tape". The quality of actors and actresses which play the different roles of characters are incredible. They also include music from famous artists.
Both my mother and myself have enjoyed listening to the "books/CD's on tape" for the past 6-8 months and have been pleasantly surprised not only by the stories but, the quality of the sound, music, actors and plots.
I'm amazed that these were written so long ago but sound as if they could have easily be written today. And, kind of creepy which is something I'm drawn to whether on book/tape or video.
My favorite has been "Dead Men Kill". It was a very original and kept my attention while cleaning house until I actually sat down to hear the ending. And kind of creepy which is something I'm drawn to whether on book/tape or video. My mom said in one of her Amazon reviews that she "kept driving around aimlessly until she finished hearing one of the books".
They come with a super cool newspaper that appears real of how the stories would appear in the daily paper. They also have very cool pulp fiction type covers. Another one of the great ones we heard was "False Cargo".
