I love listening to audio books, but every once in a while I find one that I cannot get into. Recently I was listening to an audio book and realized that the reason it wasn’t working for me was that I found the narrator’s voice extremely monotonous. I thought back to another audio book in which I felt the same way and would you believe that when I did a little bit of research, I discovered that they were both read by the same person. I could not stand her voice! It seemed to just drone on ..blah, blah, blah! For the record this particular narrator received rave reviews, so I guess it’s just me. Would I have felt differently had I read the book as opposed to listen to it?
How important a part do you think the narrator plays in how much you enjoy an audio book?
