The Audiobook Phenomenon

An audiobook is simply a recorded recording of any work or a novel being read aloud. Usually, audiobooks are subtitled so that people who cannot understand the language of the book or the narrator’s accent can still understand what is being read. The written word in an audiobook is usually described as “abridged” or “unedited”, while recordings of a longer version are called an audiobook transcription. It should be noted that audiobooks have nothing to do with “auditory enchantment” – the idea that listening to music while reading will improve your comprehension of the text and thus increase the enjoyment of the reading experience. An audiobook is more often than not an excellent form of non-fiction, especially fiction, as it tends to mirror or accurately portray events that would normally be too difficult for the average person to understand.
