I’ve never been one for audiobooks. I embraced e-readers, but I guess I’m old fashioned in that I love having a physical book in my hands and the act of sitting down with a cup of tea and spending a few hours losing myself in a book. So what you’re about to read is half my review of Stephen King’s It, half a review of my first audiobook experience.
I really wanted to read It before the new film is released in the cinema, as I’m a massive lover of all things horror related, but at over 1,100 pages- the book is quite a big commitment and I have very little spare time since I work full time and have been spending the weekends working on my final coursework for my degree. Stephen King is also my favourite author, so what better way to dip my toe in than listen to one of his books? Spoiler alert though- I gave up and went to see the new film before I finished the book. I have seen the original two part series though, so I guess it’s not too much of a let down that I’ve seen the film before reading the book.
So I thought the best way to try and get through it as quickly as possible would be to give an audiobook a go… for the first time ever.
