I certainly agree with Audio-books. Frankly, the Voice-acting is pathetic (bordering upon loathsome), and the sound-effects dire; I swear, with several of my vital-organs bleached in Strongbow, a nice splif, and some mates in a shed, I could produce better.... That said, the Narrator, isn`t bad... Toby Longsworth the choicest out of them, with the Narrator of Throne of Lies rather soft and anti-climatical...The one I am looking forward to is, "Age of Darkness" but only if it picks up were Galaxy in Flames left off. That and, "Nemesis" sounds interesting too. The rest I can do without.
As for audio books. They are a joke. I want to read a book, not listen to someone else read it to me with sound effects and stupid shit going on in the background. That's like watching a movie with a blindfold on, just pointless.
Yeah, all true, but charging 50% more than the price of a novel for a 70 minute story is, even for GW, taking the piss. Considering it costs a ridiculous 59 pence in the UK to print a CD, they could at least just charge the price of a standard novel. They are an absolute rip off, and I for one won't be buying any more.Vote yes for audio books.:victory:
If they did bring them out in written form they would only be very short storys that you could read in half an hour.Its also a lot easyier to listen to an audio book and drive a car at the same time.
