I struggle to sleep at nights so I thought I would try out some audio books so hopefully the talking in my ears at night would sent me off. It worked!
I received a voucher for a free audiobook with audible when buying something with amazon once, so I gave it a go and got the first twilight book.
I had read the last book in the series and hadn't had the chance to read to others. (I read the last one because I was going to see breaking dawn at the cinema and wanted to read it first).
It was quick and easy for me to get the free book and I ended up signing up too at £3.99 for the first three months and that entitles you to one book a month and up to 80% on other books. (It's £7.99 after that hence me cancelling).
I ended up cancelling before the 3 months was up because my father in law had some audio books and let me copy them to my Ipod.
It's so easy to do when you want to choose your books. You can either download the software which will put it onto your ipod etc for you, or it will just download normally and you can burn it to a CD, put it on a memory stick or what ever device you are going to be listening to it on. You can just leave it on the computer too if you want to listen to it on there.
I like that I can take it wherever I want. I downloaded the App on my Iphone so I can download something from there if I wanted to.
Twilight Audiobook: (By Stephenie Meyer)
As i'd already watched the film, I wish I hadn't. When listening to this book, I couldn't use my own imagination to imagine the scene very well as all I could picture was the scenes and settings and even the people in the film. The narrator was female and american with a very easy voice. She wasn't too nasally or loud and I loved that she changed her voice when the characters would converse.
I have since got the rest of the twilight series audio books and have been listening to them every night. I end up falling asleep after 20 minutes so It's taking me a long time since this first book was about 13 hours of listening time.
I think most people put down Twilight's plot like I did. I hadn't watched any of the films at all until last year in August when I gave in and watched the first one. I instantly fell in love with the story line and watched the other two films straight away and then planned to go to the cinema a few months later to watch the next in the cinema.
I'm a sucker for a love story and a bit of vampire action is great.
I think now due to this film, any woman would be fine with being bitten by a vamp if they looked like Edward Cullen.
I had a wonderful and easy breezy experience with Audible. I would 100% use them again when I have finished the books I have.
5/5 from me.
Thanks for reading.
