Day 2 Audiobook Week – Sound Effects in Audiobooks

The assignment for today is to comment on sound effects in audiobooks.  I do not think I have read or been aware of much ado with sound in the books I have listened to and enjoyed over the years. And if I had I am not able to recall any to share.

Most recently in Sarah Vowell’s UNFAMILIAR FISHES they utilized music during transitions.  At first, I was a bit confused because music on other audiobooks often signifies the disc is coming to an end but in this case it was used throughout and I did enjoy it.

  1. Yes, I thought the music was used well in UNFAMILIAR FISHES.

      So far one of my big audio highlights for year as I thought this was fabulously produced in every way. Not something I have thought about too much but you kids in the twitter book community have forced these thoughts into my head. Mostly, this was not a topic I was the slightest bit interested in and yet I was engaged, enchanged by Sarah Vowell and I really enjoyed taking in all she had to offer on this subject matter.
