Read from August 13 to September 18, 2010

Our first attempt at listening to an audio book and it failed. A little too violent for bedtime listening, but that's not to say that I didn't like it or WANT to hear the whole thing. I got attached enough to the reader and his voice that I don't want to read the book on paper and think the only way to hear the story is to HEAR it, but we probably never will. Discovered that yes, audio books help you fall asleep so effectively that it's difficult to get through them.

David My one and only audio-book experiment was also a failure. I tried listening to one on my iPod during a 5 hour train journey, and while the story was entertaining enough, the reader (who was also the author) voiced all the characters himself, even the females. He put on these ridiculous cartoonish girl voices that were just an instant immersion killer.

By the way I often find listening to late night talk radio puts me straight to sleep, so I think I'd have the same problem as you with audio-books.
