Lovely until...

Would you listen to Sleepy Ocean & Gentle Rain again? Why?

I love it ! So relaxing until the last minute when Audible completely spoils all relaxation effects with its own self promotion announcement tacked on in a VERY LOUD VOICE

Perfect for the purpose of sleep

'Just Waves' washing up on the shore and 'Just Rain' in a steady downpour, what better to sleep to? I like that there's nothing to wake me up.
I was concerned that the dreaded and loud 'You have been listening to Audible' announcement might be a problem, but I set the sleep timer to avoid that. Don't even know if it's on there....

narrators voice unwelcome interruption

after putting me happily asleep, I am awakened by a man's voice ruining the experience
what is the point of a sleep tape if you are going to wake people up the end of it?

Wonderful sounds for sleep

What made the experience of listening to Sleepy Ocean & Gentle Rain the most enjoyable?

I so enjoyed the ocean sounds. Was asleep when the rain started. Have never heard the whole CD since I fall asleep. Great!! I love it!

No story.

Good sleep aid

I like both the ocean waves and the rain. Depending on my mood that night will determine which one I play. I use the sleep timer so the announcement at the very end, "AUDIBLE HOPES YOU HAVE ENJOYED THIS PROGRAM", doesn't play and wake me up. I wish they'd stop that!

Puts me right to sleep!

Chapter 1 is an hour of ocean sounds, chapter 2 is rain. Great for using the sleep timer at bedtime.

Put me right to sleep!!

This did what I wanted it to do - I was asleep before I knew it and slept through the whole night.

Great for falling asleep!

My only change would be that it last longer. This will knock you out at night but I have people in my house that wake up 2 hours before I do so I would prefer something that could knock out that noise too. I love that this one also is just white noise with no one speaking.
