You’ll need a lobotomy to enjoy a Kevin J Anderson novel, that is , if you’re a fan good Sci Fi. Never got over how horrifyingly bad and thoughtlessly cranked out the Dune prequels and Sequels he ‘co-authored’ with Frank Herbert’s son were. Read a few of his other works, and always finished up wishing I had my hours invested back.
In for one. My brother and I are rabid Rush fans, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have this yet for the collection, and his birthday is coming up soon. (Of course, all of that assumes that my niece and nephew don’t get to it first!)
In any event, I know where I live in that Venn diagram.
There’s a fair gulf between a book run through a speech-to-text program, and well-read audiobook. I have only a handful of audiobooks, and all of them are by authors I really love, and read by someone who is good at that. In most cases, they are books I’ve already read.
Reading for an audience is a skill and an art form that not everyone, including a lot of authors, has. When done well, it is an art form that adds something to the experience.
Oh, it’s an audiobook. I thought by the first image that it was a really ugly clock wooooot was trying to sell.
Honestly, I don’t buy audiobooks. This collection and many others are available at your local public library. My tax dollars at work as they say.
