Rob Thomas announced that the first five minutes of Veronica Mars: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line the audiobook is now available to preview for free online.

Today, in an email to all Kickstarter backers, Rob Thomas unveiled some exciting news about the first Veronica Mars novel — or audiobook to be exact. In an effort to draw more people to Veronica Mars: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line, Random House Audio released the first five minutes of the audiobook on their YouTube channel.

Rob was also able to confirm that Kristen Bell would be narrating the audiobook, which everyone had been secretly hoping would happen anyway. To no one’s surprise, Kristen’s voice is the perfect fit for the noir tale. Plus, who doesn’t want to hear Kristen impersonating the voices of all of her co-stars?

In order to garner even more interest in the audiobook, Rob teased, “The book and audiobook are not PG-13, for the record, so if you prefer the audiobook, you’ll get to hear Kristen drop more than one F-bomb. You’re welcome.”
