Good Listening

I am an avid listener of audio books.  I generally download them from the Library’s website.  As anyone who listens to audiobooks knows, a good reader is essential.  One book that lends itself extremely well to a listening experience is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann ShafferThis historical novel, set on an island in the English Channel  just after WWII, is epistolary:  it consists of letters written by the characters.  In the audio version, each letter writer is read by a different reader.  The distinctive dialects and personalities of the voices enhance the meaning and effect of the story.  This book is available both on CD and as a downloadable audio.
