Audio Books- yay or nay?

Audio Books- I’ve tried and so far have not been able to get into them. I know by many they are well-liked and a welcome companion to a road-trip; but for me- just not my cup of tea.

The problem with audio books for me is this: Think about when you are reading a book and think that it’ll make a great movie- so you start picturing the cast. Then the cast is announced, and it’s ok; but not the dream cast in your mind. This is basically how I feel about audio books- I already have the idea of what the character should sound like in my head as I read, so listening to another person’s audio version kind of ruins it for me.

Does anyone else feel this way? Or have I just not met the perfect audio book yet?
