Good Reviews - Needs written back-up

Would you listen to Ep. 1: Best Audiobooks of 2017 (Audicted) again? Why?

Yes!

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

Enjoyed the banter, but made it difficult to follow sometimes.

Any additional comments?

I listen to Audible either in the car, or while I am working, including this series. It would be very beneficial to me if each edition had an accompanying pdf with links to the books discussed in that edition.

Audible podcast: I love it!

This is an Audible podcast. Perfect length for a commute at around 34 minutes. In this episode, the Editors recap which audiobooks made the cut for Audible's Best of 2017 list, and they briefly discussed how they came up with those titles.

This was a super fun listen for me. These Editors have infectious enthusiasm for each of the audiobooks they discussed, and that is exactly what I wanted to hear. They actually made me reconsider listening to one or two audiobooks that weren't on my radar before now plus I now plan to re-listen to one in my own library that I didn't particularly enjoy the first time because of how much they loved it. I'm impressed!

They do mention quite a few audiobooks during the podcast, so if we want to go back and get a list of what was discussed during each episode, that information has been made available here: https://www.audible.com/ep/Audicted

After I finished this first episode, I subscribed to Audicted so each episode will be delivered directly to my library. Loved this one and highly recommend it to people who just generally love audiobooks as much as I do.

Very hard to follow

I thought this would be a great thing to use to find new books and authors. It didn’t quite work for me. The conversations about the books and authors seem to digress to the point where it is difficult to remember what is being discussed. It’s like listening to a sommelier describe a wine. I really like wine but I don’t want to learn a new vocabulary just to talk about them.
For me there are certain things that are still better when read. Taking notes while listening to an audio performance sort of defeats the purpose. I’ll just continue to cut and paste the stuff I think I’d like from the newsletters.

Episode 1

I had low expectations for this series but it’s actually pretty good! I’m always happy to hear about new book recommendations because I listen to a lot of audio books. It’s nice that this gives recommendations of books to listen to from the people of audible. I’m going to listen to a couple of the books they recommended.
