Ratings and Reviews
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.
Wonderful and frustrating
I love being able to listen to books while i do chores or excercise. It’s true, I miss some of the detail because of my multitasking, but I’m far too restless by nature to sit down to read a book from cover to cover. This way I get to absorb a lot of books. And those that are read by their authors can be especially captivating. Wow! What a privilege!
On the other hand…. I find a number of things really frustrating. Most of the books that interest me are non-fiction. I used to buy the kindle book and get the whisper sync narration. Being able to look up specific content was brilliant! I could also annotate and highlight passages in a much more natural (granted, familiar) way. However, for some reason whisper synch isn’t available for many books. Also, Audible’s books almost never have the original chapter titles, just numbers. Which is a nightmare for trying to find a passage again. I’d also like more options for navigating and replaying sections. It might sync across devices, great, but if I’d just played a passage to a friend on my iphone, it assumes that’s where I am and lose where I was unless I’ve made and annotated a clipping or changed the synch settings. Finally, I’d love it if I could set the sleep timer for a chapter, not have it fade out randomly in the middle of a sentence.
