I use to read books all the time but as I got older I had a harder time sitting down to read… that said I listen to a lot of audiobooks as they allow me to go through a book at times when reading is ordinarily impossible.
I dislike them because they’re so slow. And I feel like it’s easier to comprehend things you read since you can just read the line again if you missed something, while in audio books you have to rewind which again, is so slow it frustrates me.
The first group I can relate to… I cannot stand Scott Brick. Some people like listening to him but whenever I see a book with his name on it I cringe.
The second group speaks for itself.
The third group I haven’t really experienced beyond the Thrawn Trilogy. There are some things I don’t like about the books, but when you include the narrator, sound effects, music, and the overall tone of the books it is a joy to listen to. It’s also very much the true sequel to Return of the Jedi.
