Recently I was encouraged to start listening to books on CD. What a great way to “read” a good book. Although my commute is not long, it makes that time much more bearable. But, so much depends on the Reader. Currently I am listening to “A Spot of Bother” by Mark Haddon. It is read by Charles Keating, an English actor with a wonderful voice. Reading the novel myself would never give me the full appreciation of the British family portrayed in this novel. Keating’s voice and accent are a welcome addition to this charming story. I felt the same when I listened to another of Haddon’s novels, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. So if you’d like to try something new on your commute or even if you are planning a road trip, try listening to your books.
