In Praise of Audiobooks
So far I have listened to Solar by Ian MacEwan, Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami and On Beauty by Zadie Smith. Each book quite different in character, but equally enjoyable. I think I actually appreciated the book more than if I'd read it myself.
At the moment I am listening to The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry. This is a different book again - much gentler than the others, and I find myself looking forward to doing some ironing or maybe going on a walk just so I can listen again.
