Matt narrating “Toys” audiobook?

According to Amazon.com, Matt is the narrator for James Patterson’s “Toys” audiobook coming out on March 14, 2011. 

[spoiler]James Bond and Jason Bourne have just been topped! A battle for the world is set into unstoppable motion and Hays Baker is the only one who can save it.

Hays Baker and his wife Lizbeth possess super-human strength, extraordinary intelligence, stunning looks, a sex life to die for, and two beautiful children. Of course they do—they’re Elites, endowed at birth with the very best that the world can offer. The only problem in their perfect world: humans and their toys!

The one with the most toys—dies
The top operative for the Agency of Change, Hays has just won the fiercest battle of his career. He has been praised by the President, and is a national hero. But before he can savor his triumph, he receives an unbelievable shock that overturns everything he thought was true. Suddenly Hays is on the other side of the gun, forced to leave his perfect family and fight for his life.

Now a hunted fugitive, Hays is thrown into a life he never dreamed possible—fighting to save humans everywhere from extinction. He enlists all of his training to uncover the truth that will save millions of lives—maybe even his own. James Patterson’s Toys is a thriller on a hyper plane—with a hero who rivals both James Bond and Jason Bourne.[/spoiler]

The book is over 400 pages, so that’s quite a bit of Matt to listen to. Thanks ~L~ for the tip!

Also, here is today’s fan art created by clichejuice as we continue our Christmas countdown.

    I’m so glad Matt is doing more stuff. It’s helping his career and his fans are loving it! He should really make an album; he has such a good voice! That would be awesome, i think. And I have to agree with everything @Desiree says! God bless Matt <3

  • Kavya

    I think that seeing Kate was just a flashback at least that’s how I remember it. So don’t get your hopes up 🙁

    Excuse me, but could you allow me have a question? This may sound silly, but I always wonder why “audio books” are popular in US? In my country, it’s not common but usually for blind or old people who has difficulty to read books. I love to buy the Matt’s audio book, but why do some people prefer listening audio books to read them? This is just my curiosity. I would appreciate if someone give me some reasons or background. Thanks! 🙂

  • I think audiobooks really come in handy if a person has a long commute to work. If a person is on the go a lot, they sometimes don’t have time to sit down and read a good book. 🙂

    Here’s an article too: http://audioforbooks.com/articles/audio-books/why-are-audio-books-so-popular/

    Ahhh, Kelly!!! So quick and.. you did a research for me?! So kind.. “nearly 1 in 4 Americans (24.6%) had listened to…” This surprises me! It’s very interesting, and the article totally fills my curiosity. THANKS A LOT!!! 😀

    Wow! He is really getting his name out there! Did you know he is also in a little Holiday podcast for the TV show “Chuck”? He sure keeps himself busy!

  • I feel kinda silly for having pre-ordered this. I’ve never read a Patterson book, but the plot sounds interesting. And of course any excuse for listening to Matt’s voice for hours on end is fine in my book (pun intended). :o) Audio books have become more and more popular in Germany too. A lot my colleagues who have long commutes to work in the car are very fond of them. I myself drive only 10 minutes to work, but I like listening to audio books too, particularly when I travel or sometimes at night before I go to sleep.

  • Don’t feel silly, I will probably do the same thing Teejay. 🙂
