whenever i read aloud--i read with animation/emotion. i don't necessarily change my voice to try to match the character but i do follow the moods of the characters.

to me there's no point in reading to someone in a (more or less) monotone. sure fire way to put someone to sleep for the night, IMO.

I don't do audio books. But if I did-I'd definately want it read in character. Back in my theatre days when we'd do table reads of our shows, it gave us an opportunity to try out different voice personas as we got to know the character we were playing. I can't see an audio book being different.

I'd like to hear other feedback on this. Do you prefer animated speaking (suggesting emotion)? Is this common.?

I've always read aloud with emotion. When I'm reading different characters, I do change my voice a bit. Of course, I've always read to children who really seemed to enjoy it. It seems to help them understand the feeling behind the words and differentiate between characters.

I think audio book readers are asking for trouble when they start doing "voices". I can see how it would be hard not to try and accentuate the voice of a character who is supposed to be notable for their speech, but reading it straight let's my brain fill in the details more easily.

Yeah it's made it so I can't listen to anything I've read or have read in the series. But American Gods has the hole cast from the show reading it so it kinda crazy to have different voices that are actually different people

@d1cks1in: that would drive me crazy!

OT: just finished "Working It" by Leah Marie Brown -- good, lite palate cleaner.

Currently reading " The Girl With No Name : the incredible true story of a girl raised by monkeys" by Marina Chapman It sounds sensationalesque- like tabloid fodder but it's really compelling and interesting. It starts when she was not quite 5 and kidnapped with other children but then abandoned.

I hate that it has killed storylines for me so I had to get an Audible account to listen as I drive. It's nice but some people read names different then I do. Some times to the man reading it doesn't really get the woman's voice right to me and this can really bug me

struggling my way through book 8 of Outlander. I can't seem to read it for more then 15 minutes at a time. Not really because of the book, just things have been a bit crazy here the last few weeks.
