This Week’s Question
Do you think listening to an audiobook instead of reading the print version makes it more difficult to write a review?
Submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews.
Definitely not! I think it adds a whole different dimension to the review! After all, when you review an audiobook, you’re not only considering the story but the narration, as well. At least, that’s what I do. I love to talk up a good narrator!
Other than the narration aspect, I don’t see why a review for an audiobook would be any different or more difficult to accomplish. I have to take notes whether I’m reading a physical book, an e-book, or an audiobook. Because my brain doesn’t like to maintain details once I’m done reading a book, haha. So, no matter how I consume a story, there will be notes so the review process will be the same.
Now, in cases where I forget to take notes, it will be harder if I want to remember certain quotes. That’s the only thing I could think of that would possibly be more difficult. But that’s my own fault for forgetting to take notes 😂
Long answer short: No! I don’t think writing a review for an audiobook would be any more difficult than writing a review for something I read physically.
