Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays hosted by Should Be Reading has sort of expanded their format with lots of choices to blog about.  So, I am going to go with it.  I have developed a new "reading" habit -- audio books -- which I blogged about previously.  I thoroughly enjoyed the first book so I went out and acquired another by the same author, "Pawley's Island"  .  I am currently listening to it on my daily commute and I am enjoying it as well except.....

The first novel  was ready by actress Robin Miles and was completely enjoyable.  The second is being read by the author and I have to say it is not the same experience.  Oh, it is a wonderful, engaging book and Dorothea Benton Frank is a very talented author but....

Not such a great reader. 

She is adequate and I am enjoying the book but I am wondering how it would be with another reader.  When I  purchased the cd's, I was raving to the salesman about the first book and how I really enjoyed it and he said, yes, but it depends on the reader.  I now know what he means. 

However, I am really enjoying this author and will continue to enjoy her books whether they are in printed form or audio.  I recommend her highly.
