My return to audio.

Written by Kirsten on January 1st, 2012

I haven’t listened to an audiobook in about a year. I don’t know why, really – I have several I’ve not listened to, and just haven’t gotten around to putting them in iTunes. The wrap-up posts across the book blogging world, especially among my Twitter friends, prompted me to get back to it, though, with many rave reviews of Wil Wheaton’s narration of Ready Player One. I’ve just finished Chapter Zero, and I think this is going to be a lot of fun. Have you read and/or listened to it? Drop a link to your review below and I’ll check them all out when I’m done (unless you specify that there are no spoilers in your review – then I’ll head over now).

Now, back to the game!

  1. I read it around Thanksgiving and loved it! In fact, I loved it so much that I immediately downloaded the audio version so I could listen to it. I’m taking my time with it, mostly because I don’t have much occasion to listen to audiobooks, but what I have heard I’ve enjoyed! Love Wil!

      Wil definitely does a great job overall. I am super picky about narration, which is probably part of why I’m not as avid a listener as I’d like to be. It grates on me and distracts from my ability to follow the story when I feel a narrator’s affect is too something, or not something enough; he’s only irked me a very few times so far, which makes him one of the best narrators I’ve listened to for this long! ;)
