Like many of you, my wife is an avid audio book user during her commute times. For X-mas, I bought her a 3 month gift certificate for SimplyAudioBooks.com. I thought this would be a great service, but -- unfortunately -- in our situation it wasn't a great fit.
Some of the books she tried were abridged (w/o clearly being labeled so), her Patrick O'Brian audio books used all different voice characters than the ones we bought off the shelf, the turn-around time was seemingly long at times and in the end, they stuck us for an extra month beyond the initial gift certificate (read that "gift certificate" contract carefully.)
Maybe for other people the service will work wonderfully. It was a dissapointment for my family.
