Back to topic:
I only listen to books that ive read before, first reason is that i know what its about and know whats going on, second is that it can give me a whole new perspective of the book - instead of reading it with that voice in your read, you listen to it through another person's voice and acting, which is quite interesting.
its getting late here... I am not making any sense ^^; (hope you get what i mean)
That made total sense. I never actually thought about listening to a book that I've already read. I sort of come up with my own voices for the characters and if I read it and then listen to the audio book, I sometimes get thrown off. So it basically has to be one or the other for me. But now that I'm a bit more into voice acting, I think I definitely see your point of view.
I liked how the readers of the audio books have a different point of view to the book than yours, and i never get tired listening to them... When i listen to an audio book again and again, I can actually picture a different setting of the scene everytime... for some weird reason.
A different scene every time you hear it, eh? Hmm...I can see how that would work. I really need to listen to more audio books and I think hearing some of the audio books from some of the VAA peeps would be super awesome. Hearing their renditions of the characters from books sounds like a blast.
i love audio books! i can do other things while listening to a story. They are great for long drives and plane rides
Caitlin Davies who reads the audio books for House of Night is awesome! I mean the books are awesome too but it helps to have someone who can read them well too.
A audio books can turn me off to a series simply because I will forever more hear all the characters' voices like that and if they have a bad voice actor well...
But over all if the person reading it is descent then audio books are awesome!
All of my serious books (as in great pieces of literature) I try to read myself. All fun books (anything Star Wars related or Warcraft related) I buy on Audible.com
