What is a review, you ask?
A review gives an idea of what the book is about. You can write a short summary without giving away the whole plot. You can write why you liked it, what parts you enjoyed the most. Was there a deeper meaning to the book? Who would you recommend it to? Do you think it's a great book for beginners who are just starting out learning English, or do you think it's for those in the middle - the intermediate? Or, do you think it's for advanced English students?
Just give your opinion about different audio books that you have completed.
Get into the habit of sitting down to write up a review when you have finished an audio book. It's not only great for people who come along, as it helps them to choose a book, but you get practice at writing and using the English language as you go along; getting better and better at expressing your thoughts.
In the article library you will see a widget that enables one to search for free e-books as well. Download audio books for free does off the e-book version but if it doesn't for a book you have chosen then hop along to the article library and put out a search for that free e-book. If it is available on audio you will also find it somewhere online as an e-book, so you can read and listen at the same time. Then you can check out the vocabulary first - to make sure it's something you want to tackle.
Some of you may choose to read the e-book first and then download the audio book for free, once you have mastered the vocabulary that is going to be coming up.
I usually listen to audio books at night when I get into bed. And, we'll look at some of my favourite writers later on, as these are not free books, although you may be able to find some of them in your local library.
One thing you want to avoid is, if you come across an audio book that has a mechanical voice like a computer reading the story... Get rid of it.
I don't know whose idea that was, but it's really a very unpleasant experience listening to one of those books, and, there are quite a few of them about.
Make sure there is a nice human reading the story and not a machine !
Reading a book, or listening to a book, is so much more enjoyable than watching the film. There are a few exceptions like "The Lord of the Rings" but most films only have about ninety minutes to tell a story and when you listen to an audio book you have a much richer experience. The story is covered in much greater detail and you have a unique relationship with the story as its your interpretation in your imagination.
And if you come across any Roald Dahl books.. (he's a great famous children's writer) then you may also come across his poem about television.. One day his books will be freely available too, but not for some time yet, although again you should find his books in your local library.
More recommendations of audio books will be coming up but don't wait for me.
