      In the past I could hardly imagine that it is possible to listen to audiobooks and comprehence them at the same level as paper books.

       

      But recently I’ve discovered really genius reader – Denis Verovoy. His performance of audiobooks is truly delightful! I’ve listened to different audiobooks read by Verovoy: Max Frei’s adventures (series of books written by Svetlana Martynchik under pen name Max Frei), “The Sovereign's Servant” (“Sluga Gosudarev”) written by Oleg Ryaskov, “Humans as Gods” (“Lyudi kak bogi”) written by Sergey Snegov.

       

      When you listen to audiobooks read by Denis Verovoy it feels like you watch a film or read by yourself. As opposed to many other audiobook readers who read books with one voice, often even without any intonation, Verovoy gives special voice to each character, and you will confuse them just if you make a push for it :). In addition background music is very-well fitted, and all these elements together make listening to these audiobooks completely comprehensive, easy and enjoyable.

       

      OTOH, after listening to audiobooks read by Verovoy it’s quite difficult to listen to another audiobooks, because they seem too impersonal and boring.

       

      I recommend audiobooks read by Verovoy to those who never listed to audiobooks but want to try it. Also I’m sure that those who have experience in listening to audiobooks will enjoy these ones too.

      Although many people are sure that it's better to read books instead of listening to them, we can still find a lot of situations in our everyday life when we have no other choice but listen to an audiobook instead of reading it. Everyday commute to work and back home, either in public or personal transport sometimes forces us to listen to an audiobook. Surely you'd be listening to an audiobook while driving a car from city's suburbs, otherwise you are very likely to get into a car accident :) just because of the traffic jams and the danger of falling asleep staying in one ;)

       

      For those who truly love Harry Potter world it would be really good to listen to audiobooks read by a prominent English actor, writer and playwright Stephen Fry. You will not only enjoy the familiar world of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry but also develop your listening comprehension and phonetics skills.

       

      This leads us to another usage of audiobooks - learning foreign languages. When you are at least at the Intermediate level, it's really useful to listen to some adapted audiobooks that you have already read in your native language. You'll be already familiar with the plot so you'll pay special attention not only to the story itself but also to the language used to describe this story.

      I use audiobooks extensively while driving, and video learning - when doing some things, which take some time but do not require that much attention. E.g. when tidying up my home workspace once a week.

      I adore Stephen Fry. He made me love audiobooks. Just the way he makes all the characters sound different (and in the Harry Potter saga there are lots of them) fills you with admiration. He was the one I started with and that was the right choice to make.

       

      For me audiobooks used to be one of the methods to develop listening comprehension. It's much more easier than actual speaking as you are not afraid of missing anything (and thus disrupting a conversation) because any time you can just backwind. This helps you relax and enjoy the story. Secondly, books are usually read with proper pronunciation and intonation, so one doesn’t have to straggle with any weird accents. The readers provide us with standard English speech pattern which is recognized everywhere, so this can be the best variant to adopt.

       

      What is left to do is just to choose the book you’ll like.

      What about audiobooks?

      When you listen to audio books read by Denis Verovoy it sounds like you're watching a movie or reading alone. Contrary to many other audiobook readers who read books in one voice, they are often absent, Verovoy gives a special voice to each character, and will only confuse them if you press them. I can ask about onseneducation. Adding background music is very good, and all these combinations make listening to these audiobooks a whole lot, easy and fun.

      When you hear the documentary read by Denis Verovoy it feels like you are watching a movie or reading it on your own. Unlike many other readers who read books in one voice, usually without a hitch, Verovoy gives a unique voice to each person, and you will be able to counter them if you do it offline. You have to try ihatewritingessays.com now. Also, the music of the film is very good, and all of these elements are well-listened to in these recordings, simple and enjoyable.
