One of the great treats of having driven back and forth from LA many times is the great audio books I have taken as companions. One of the best was Derek Jacobi's reading of "The Iliad." Another was "On The Road" by Jack Kerouac. Brilliant recording by Frank Muller. Sort of a modern "Odyssey."
Prior to hearing Jacobi, I had read The Odyssey out loud by myself, and then followed up with The Iliad the next year before I had known Jacobi had recorded it. If you ever are on a long trip and you can find it...
though I think it may only still be in audiotape cassettes, not CD.
