Footnotes just don't work in an Audio Book

I really like discovering new books through book reviews in newspapers (New York Review of Books, New Yorker, and NY Times, mainly) and from some book blogs I read. But what are good sources of reviews of audio books

I am going on a very long driving trip this weekend and would like to buy some audio books for the drive. I've tried to buy ones that I would like to read in regular format, but sometimes the readers aren't very good. And sometimes a book that is wonderful to read, isn't wonderful to listen to (too confusing -- can't flip back and forth to look up characters, or just not very engaging). So I'm looking for online reviews of audio books that are really absorbing (either because of the writing or because the reader is really good or whatever), as I'm going to need something to keep me from going crazy on the monotonous highways.
