Better than singing out loud!!
Used to listen to music while I was out walking, but then often found myself singing along out loud - not good for those around, so tried listening to audiobooks and was hooked from the start. I now don’t need to worry about singing out loud, but can’t guarantee my facial expressions don’t make people wonder what I am listening to, as I get engrossed in the story line, I have even
Caught myself saying “Oh no!” Or “Good” but hopefully people will just think I’m having a phone conversation. Basically what I am trying to say is give audiobooks a try, you get the first book free, like me you might become hooked. I’m have certainly listened to more books lately than I would have read, some books I might not otherwise have read and found them compelling listening.. my only suggestion to anyone giving it a try, listen to the sample first, that way you know whether you are going to be able to listen to that persons voice for a number of hours. I did return one book simply because I hadn’t done that and just couldn’t get away with the readers accent.
When my daughter said audible was my Christmas present,I wasn’t jumping for joy, grateful but not excited. I started the Harry Potter series,bought the first two but didn’t read them, then Covid struck, fed up watching day time telly, I started to listen instead, and what a revelation, I had read the books as they came out ,only because my daughters bought them and wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and enjoyed them, so having them read to me, let’s say, a ? was at the back of my mind. How wrong I was, the stories are still very imaginative, but Stephen Fry, brings each and every character to life, his verbalisation of everything within each book, lets you use your imagination to its fullest, I became so enthralled with how he changed each voice, and the twists and turns in the stories, which the movies missed had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I patiently await book 7, and I am suffering withdrawal symptoms till it’s available. Never again will I say,” I’d rather have the book in my hands.” Audible you have a convert.
Ok but also ridiculous!!
Right so... I play my iBook purchases through the audible app because I prefer the interface! But other than a bigger library of books to choose from that’s all I really like about it (although pretty much all the main big titles you’ll find anywhere). The two main things I dislike are that they don’t allow you to make purchases through the app. In a consumer driven world that’s focused on what’s convenient you can only make purchases on a PC or mobile desktop... at least as a non-member, which brings me to my next point and isn’t very good on the go! The second and the most frustrating to me is looking at a lot of the titles on my “to buy” list, without being forced to pay monthly for a membership and get these “discounts”, I searched some that I’m most interested in and every single one was more expensive than Apple are charging. Most of the time a lot more, even £10+ more. That’s ridiculous and very frustrating to feel as if you’re being bated to buy a membership that ultimately means you some how have to pay monthly to not get ripped off with the purchase prices. So disappointing but hey, enough good reviews on here shows most are happy with it. So just my recent realisation.
