The Amber Amulet Audiobook
The Amber Amulet was one of my favourite reads of last year. Probably my favourite read of the year. So, I was excited to see that my library had a copy of the audiobook of The Amber Amulet. I had to borrow it. 66 minutes of time in the car with the Masked Avenger!
Was it to be expected that I would find the audio version a little bit disappointing? I loved the physical aspects of the book too much I suppose. The compact size. The vintage look cover. The fabulous illustrations. The Impressive Use of Capitals. I could see all these in my minds eye as I was listening to the audio version, and I missed them.
Still it was nice to hear the story again. And it reminded me to read the book again, which I just did. I still love the book format more. It's pretty near perfect.
And happy news! The Amber Amulet is now an award-winning short film. See the excellent trailer here.
