Audio Books

I was always a bit sceptical when it comes to audio books. I didn’t think I’d enjoy listening a book as much as I would enjoy reading it. Plus, there’s always a question of the reader’s voice. Would I like it? Or would I hate it? However, there is a benefit of not having to put more stress on my eyes since I am spending quite some time in front of the computer.

All in all, during my long flight to meet my colleagues in Nashville, I decided to give it a try. I installed the LibriVox app and I downloaded Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse. I think it’s been more than 2 years after my wife told me it’s one of those must-read books but I was just waiting for the right moment ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Nevertheless, it was a really great experience! I loved the voice of the reader and I loved the book. It was so profound and meaningful, full of life stories and teachings. It’s been almost a week since I read listened it and I am still thinking about it. Definitely a recomendation! And while I am writing about Hesse’s work, I’d also like to recommend Demian, an incredible novel of his.

On a related note, I believe I got addicted to audio books now. Hah! ๐Ÿคฃ

What about you? Do you like audio books? If you don’t, why is that? And if you do, which app do you use? Share! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
