I hate audio books too. So slow! And you have that constant voice. When you read properly, the words just flow through, and you don't really worry about how the words may sound, what sort of accent. (unless there is some sort of thing describing speech, in which you imagine how it would sound in your head. However, the brain is funny like that, because, at least for me, I cannot get sounds in my mind, only words...so there is not much of a difference, unless you say it out loud. Very rarely does one feel like speaking the dialogue of a character out loud, but when the story warrants it, it does add to the reading experience. However, when someone reads out a story, the sounds are too much! I apologise for the extensive brackets, I was unable to articulate my thoughts concisely, and I don't even think I managed to articulate it at all!).
Out of intrest, what sort of voice do you get in the audio books?
On a side note, your post, Rocket, contains what I believe should be called an 'Americanism' like "this cake is real good". You miss out a word or ending of a word in a sentence. I will fix it for you
I got a couple for free when I met AH.
Fixed! (Please do not take offence, I do this to people's facebook status. It is a way of me saying "I love you
" because I have honoured them with a gramatical correction. Also, people making simple errors (which are often actually typoes (I believe you need to have seen the argument I had with bingo on this topic to get my amazing joke there
) just really annoys me. Much credibility can be gained by "making every post a master piece!").
Yay, that is another topic off my "new replies to posts" list. I thought I should better start tackling them, now that it has got to 9 pages (I do prefer to keep it below 6...).
