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.
Just a little less than perfect
Firstly, let me say that I love Matthew McConaughey (MC). I love the way he looks, the way he sounds and the way he acts. What man wouldn’t? He’s cool! I enjoyed this book. In one way, it’s an easy read - it’s like drinking warm cream: smooth and delicious, comforting and satisfying. Did I say satisfying? Well, not quite. Having just finished the book I’m struck by how unsatisfied I feel. Did I want more? Was there some unfinished business? What is niggling at me? I think it’s this. Throughout the book MC is living multiple lives, his own and the characters is plays. He is searching for himself in many ways, examining what it means to be MC. And by the end of the book, it feels like he is telling me that he has found the real MC. It’s like a kind of coming of age. The problem for me is that I didn’t believe it. Maybe it’s because some of his stories within the book are so unbelievable. Did he really do that? Did he really say that? At the end, I wondered whether he was still living a character he wanted to be, rather than himself. Nothing wrong with that - it’s a great character. I hope he brings out a sequel in 20 years. I will certainly buy it because I really want to know who he becomes. He has left me wanting more. Maybe that’s the hallmark of a great book. Can we have a longer book next time please? This book is a little less than perfect. But if I’ve learned anything about MC from his book, I think he would be ok with that.
A Little Happier moreso!
Having relished Derren's original hard copy of "Happy" I was delighted by the cornucopia of intelligent research and insights that were proffered in the text. I went on to listen further in the audio version on my daily commute, absorbing and mentally ingesting every topic that might alleviate my overactive thought processes on those nagging questions of my own self.
How fortunate that Derren furthered indulged us with "A Little Happier" as a sweet dessert for those who wish not to have the guilt of not digesting the original. This time narrated by Derren himself and hoping that there would be no subliminal phrasing that might cause me to crash my car.
Yes it took 56 miles from start to finishing the audio version, the original safely with other loved books at home, and felt delighted I chose this very day to listen to it.
Now I really ought to break as many habits as I have the many ways I justify my actions, from this refresher.
My dear Mother always tells me to KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) and I would hope to think that this is the assurance Derren also gives us in this wonderfully neat edition of his original book.
