Anyone here have any to recommend?

I'm thinking of picking up a couple.

I'm so glad there are extracts on the GW site because if the narrator's voices are off it would not be fun to listen to.
Horus Heresy is great. I totally recommend.
I only have 1 book, and thats LOTRHappy
Once again the answer is “it depends”

I have bought a load of the Audio books as I have quite a long commute and they’re a great way to pass the time.  I have enjoyed most but not all of them.  All the below is now my opinion and YMMV applies.

My favourites have been the Horus Heresy stories with Sigilite being the best of the bunch.  I’ve always been interested in the Heresy so fleshing this period out along with the novels is great.  If you can, seek out Sigilite and Butcher’s Nails.

So far the ones I have liked least have been the Gotrek and Felix stories (Slayer of the Storm God and Curse of the Everliving) and Perfection a 40K story based around a Slaanesh Marines warband so I wouldn’t bother with those.  

The production values are pretty good and the voice actors and narrators seem to fit well though there have been as far as I can tell 2 or 3 different actors playing Malcador in different stories in the Heresy series.

Cheers

Im totally with you on every point except the Sigilite i didn't like it very much, It was a good flesh out of the sigilite though.


My favorite's are the 1st 3 HORUS RISING, FALSE GODS and GALAXY IN FLAMES. Boy i love Loken he is so damn awesome when he charges Abadon, I love these books so much im collecting the expensive but amazing horus heresy character series by forgeworld!

But you can't forget the audiobook FULGRIM. What an amazing character Fulgrim is. He is such an unfortunate soul.

That’s an interesting thing.  I saw Audio Book and read it as the one CD Audio Dramas.

I have not listened to any of the audio versions of the novels (my commute is not that long Wink

The first 3 hh ones are certainly top of the list. Fulgrim I'd say is my 2nd or 3rd favourite hh book. Butchers nails i wasn't sure about the voice.
