I’m an unrepentant end-reader. I will get partially into a book and just have to read the end, see who survives, who the killer was, if the couple finally gets together. I still read the rest of the book, but I feel better knowing how it all turns out. I don’t like the stress inherent in not knowing. Yes, I realize that for many that’s one of the draws of reading, but not for me so much. I’m also a skimmer. Sometimes I skim through a page, getting what I need to but skipping over some of the details. Both of those are quiet easy with traditional books
And that’s the problem with audiobooks. I can’t skip ahead to the end, at least on my player, because I’ll lose my spot. I can’t skim over any bits because I’m stuck with the narrator’s pace, probably a good thing actually, although with some books where there is a lot of repetition it can be annoying .
Here’s what it boils down to- I need a bit of help. My current audio is The Crimson Campaign by Brian McClellan, #2 in his Powder Mage Trilogy. I’m currently on hour 5 of like 19 and I really need to know what’s going to happen! So, if you’ve read it, please e-mail me some spoilers. Or just let me know in the comments a general idea of the outcome, mostly with Taniel’s and Tamas’ storylines. Nila I’m not so invested in or Adamat for that matter. Pretty please.
Am I the only one who has this trouble with audiobooks? I love them, don’t get me wrong, but I wish more reviewers would give me spoilers.
