Morning Meanderings… Good audio…. bad audio
Good morning! It’s Tuesday!!!! Day two of a pretty mellow week! Woo Hoo!!!!
I thought this morning I would chat audio (hang in there Laurel…. I have one for you! 😉 ) I LOVE audio… this is no secret, in fact it seems like the majority of my reviews as of late are audio….
I can listen to audio while I cook, clean, drive, get ready in the morning… these are all things I can not do while carrying a book. I have come to love the diversity of the narrators and I have learned a narrator can make or break a book – making a good book bad, or even a not do great book, wonderful…. narration is a magical thing 🙂
I talk about this today because audio is a while different level to a book and if you have a favorite book – I highly encourage you to try it on audio for a different experience…. you may be surprised. The Harry Potter books for instance on audio are FANTASTIC – there are two sets with two different narrators, Jim Dale and Stephen Fry – both are EXCELLENT.
Yesterday I started listening to The Martian by Andy Weir, narrated by R C Bray and wow oh wow oh wow!!!! I am seriously loving this audio book… considering at this time gushing about it as much as I gushed about Ready Player One…. which, in two years, I listened to twice, gushing both times…. in 2011, and in 2014.
Ok I have to go… enough with the gush…. just know that if you have not tried audio… you are missing out on another level to the reading experience… and if you tell me you have tried audio and it didn’t work for you…
Try again 😀
Seriously…. dig through my reviews here or ask me for a list of AMAZING titles…. I would be happy to point you in the direction of great audio….
Oh and if you are an audio book person feel free to share the excellent titles you have listened to.
You know… I will talk about this again. 🙂
Have a super day…. work for me… then maybe a bike ride 🙂
