Hi, it doesn't look like you can play Audible audiobooks natively on Linux.  They're also protected with DRM to prevent copying.  An option is to install and use WINE to play them.  Here's link on how to set it up: https://scottlinux.com/2011/01/30/play-audible-audio-books-in-linux/.  I hope this helps - good luck  ;).
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!

I hate drm, let us know if you need more help. 

Does audible have a streaming option? I know it's a long shot.
