"We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." - Jules Verne

NPR DRIVEWAY MOMENTS for DADS (audiobook) by NPR
Published in 2012 by HighBridge Audio
Duration: 1 hour, 38 minutes.
Billed as "Radio Stories that Won't Let You Go", the premise of this audio series is that each of these stories is so compelling that when they were broadcast over the radio you would have waited in your car in the driveway to hear the end of the story rather than going on in to your house.
There are 21 tracks in this collection and, as in all collections, they are of varying quality. Some seem to have been included only because they fit the theme but not because they are particularly riveting. However, most are really good and a couple are very touching. The story of the dad and son who go with the Boy Scouts precisely because the dad has no real outdoor skills was quite funny.
The "Driveway Moments" series is pretty strong and this is a solid entry. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
