The monthly newsletter from GoodReads reminded me of the Thomas Keneally story ‘Daughters of Mars’ that I had listened to in audio earlier this year – wonderful!
. . . and I was reminded again of the various books I have ‘listened’ to during the last year or so – books like the Stig Larsen trilogy (European names), John Flannagan’s Brotherband series and a Nth American fiction set in the pioneering days (Mohawk language and other unique accents). Wonderful language made very real by the capable voice of an actor/reader. So easy to listen to when complex word would have been a stumbling block for me when reading the text. (Oh, I still have a text novel at my bed-side for reading each night).
With the advent of the technology that can create text from your voice – it is all becoming easier and more verbal/aural to get our message across.
I like it!
My skin is fair
My eyes are green.
My mind is open
to things unseen.
