Neal Stephenson hit the ball put of the park with Anathem. Read it, yet?
Yes, and I loved it. It was very slow starting, though. I listened to it on an audiobook, and those first few chapters, explaining the history and definitions of Stephenson's post-apocalyptic fantasy world, were mind-numbing. Luckily, the characters in the concent, are very engaging, and we readers quickly come to care about Erasmus, his teacher, Fra Orolo, and his friends.
Later on, you have all of the sex, violence, suspense, and adventure anyone could wish for to keep turning pages, or listening to an audiobook for hours.
It was a slow start, wasn't it? I didn't listen by audiobook, and the glossary in the back helped immensely.

Hi,I come from an oral storytelling background and have decided to create some children's audio books. The stories are lively, short and have have interesting characters who embark on adventures. Any advice on content or how to publish to audiobook?

What's your favorite post-apocalyptic novel?I read a lot of this kind of fiction, and I'm looking for something interesting. It doesn't have to involve zombies, I like stuff like The Stand and The Postman. I also like the new wave of teen dystopian future books like The Hunger Games. Help a girl...

What book should I read next?I prefer reading the fantasy genre in my free time, but am open to anything if you can make a reasonable argument to why I should pick up a particular book.

I am looking to record my book as an audiobook. I need something that I can record into that is inexpensive. It needs to have a good sound quality. Has anyone here had success with a particular microphone and recording device?
