Help me spend my audible audio book credits!

What books are particularly well-suited to the audio book medium? Perhaps even better as audio books than in print?
So, I signed up for audible.com's free trial, thinking I'd try a couple of audio books on my Kindle. I promptly forgot that I'd done this, and now have inadvertently paid for a month's membership.
I need to spend my three credits before I cancel, or I lose them for good. I also want to cancel soon, as I don't see myself as much of an audio-book-phile.
So my question: what audio versions of books are particularly good? What book did you enjoy in audio form better than you did (or think you would have) in print form? As for my tastes, I especially enjoy books with unique, quirky, somewhat out-of-the-norm narrators (think Emma Donoghue's Room
, Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
, or John Fowles' The Collector
). So bonus points if the books you mention meet that criteria!
I want to spend my credits on audio books that really take advantage of the medium. Thanks in advance for your recommendations!
