The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Do you think listening to an audiobook instead of reading the print version makes it more difficult to write a review?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
For me, personally, it is much more difficult to review an audiobook than a print book because I can’t focus on an audiobook no matter how hard I try. And I have tried so many times and in so many different ways.
What would be an ideal for me would be to include a review of the audio with my print review. I tried that once but I ended up DNFing the book, so it was a bad one to try with.
I might try again when I start having room to review my own books. Once I gain confidence in my ability to provide a good review of both then I will request ARCs…maybe.
What are some challenges to reviewing an audiobook? Do you think it is any more difficult than reviewing a print book?
