My only problem with audiobooks is: the narrators. Sometimes you listen to an audiobook that has a narrator who draws you into the story and you just can't pause it at all for anything and others you barely pay attention to the story until next thing you know that CD is over and you have no idea what happened after the first five minutes.
How is it that a narrator can make such a huge difference? Would you have enjoyed the story if you had read it in print format instead of listening to it with a horrible/monotone narrator?
This happened to me recently and I'll have a review post up about the one that I listened to recently and hardly paid attention too (after I watch the movie adaptation for comparison).
I will say that I have found a few narrators that I love... recently I've listened to Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, narrated by Carolyn McCormick. Carolyn has a wonderful voice for narrating by putting feeling into the words and changing her voice for certain characters' voices.
Do you have any favourite narrators? Favourite audiobooks I should check out? Where do you get your audiobooks from?
I mostly borrow them from the library, though I found a few in my Mom's room during my last visit to see my Dad and I might see if I can borrow them sometime (I did sneak Twilight though). I also noticed that my library has the ability to loan audiobooks online (might have to check this out).
