Ever Wonder How Audio Books Were Recorded?
|Naxos Audiobooks has released a video trailer of Neville Jason recording War and Peace. It's fascinating to watch him act out the book as he reads. I never realized that audio book narrators actually read from books. I always thought the book was made into a script before recording. But you can see for yourself that he's using a hardcover copy of the book, and has even dog-eared some of the pages:|
I read War and Peace once, but I have to admit that I went through the last quarter of the book pretty quickly. If you've always wanted to read War and Peace but never found the time or the persistence, try the audio book. You can find it unabridged in two volumes at the Literary Compass bookstore.
