I would rather reread any AR book than listen
Me too, and with any sort of book.
First, it's a lot quicker -- your eye and brain can coordinate and operate together much more quickly than someone else's brain and mouth in combination with your ears and brain.
And second, it you want to go back to read over a particular passage, it's easy. No stop, rewind, locate the passage, play it, then find where you'd got to before you can go back and continue...
It's easier with ebooks too; not as simple as with hard copy, but a good deal easier than a tape or an audio-book or even a Youtube clip.
