To listen or not to listen?
But is listening to an audio book reading? Does listening to a book constitute the same experience as reading one? Will the reader's reaction to the book be influenced by the listening experience? Some authors have published and read their own works on an Audio format. Neil Gammon read his Graveyard Book and recorded it onto C.D.. I ponder if my liking Fahrenheit 451 was due me listening to it, and not reading it. Bradbury is a really good oral story teller, but is his writing good? Hmm we ponder!
