Audiobook Convert

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Strangely enough, this enormous book was my audiobook conversion title. I was assigned to read the book for a genre study, read about 5 pages before setting it aside in dismay, and sought out the audio version to listen to during my commute. (Since it was bundled into 4 separate packages, little did I know that the entire book on tape was 36 cassettes long!) The story grabbed me almost from the start, and I was able to listen to the story without having my mind wander – for the first time ever with an audiobook. Remarkable. Davina Porter’s narration is a delight, and Marion Zimmer Bradley’s retelling of the King Arthur story is masterful. The combo turned me into a devoted audiobook “reader.”
