Ever wondered how great narrators remain suave? I'm happy to report they don't.
I adore having audiobooks, which I credit keeping me from road-, air- and queue-rage many a time. Most audiobooks in my library are really good, some are great, and there have been a few stinkers. How can narrators say some of those lines and keep a straight face? Well, they can't.
It also made me think of authors from previous centuries who designed their works to be read aloud, and how few of the recent ones have. Or are they sadists, writing lines like 'slicked back into a sleek chignon' to bedevil our heroes and turn narrators into mere humans, who can trip over tongue-twisters.
And how can they narrate goopy or ungrammatical or gross lines, without vocalising 'eurgh'!?
Well, they can't.
Nice to know!
A charming little diversion which I have yet to finish, but I needed to refute the previous review ASAP, and this is made to dip into for a laugh. Some snippets made me wish for a menu and who's who of both authors and narrators, but I understand how some may wish to remain anonymous.
And now I'll never be able to say the word 'phenomena' without singing the Muppets 'Mah-na-ma-na' refrain after it. Sing it with me: 'Phenomena. Do doo do doo!'

I found this audio while checking out Rebecca Cook's audiobooks, love her voice.
I laughed so hard at this collection, tears were running down my face and ended up with a tummy ache LOL I loved it. Thank you to whoever came up with the idea and all the awesome narrators (thank you Ms. Cook) who allowed their bloopers to be added. I could have done without hearing the burping scenes, but that is one of my pet peeves and nothing to do with how awesome this audio is. I hope there will be more. Thank you for the giggles and LOLs
Recommending with 5 stars!
