Discuss the essentials of audiobook reviewing. What do you make sure to include? What do you want to see when you read other people’s reviews?
In audiobook reviews, I try to cover the same things I'd address in a normal book review- what I liked and didn't like about the book. But since it is an audiobook, I also make sure I address the performance. I'll mention what worked for me, and what didn't. I also try address if the I think the performance may have influenced the rating I give, and if I think the print edition might be a better route to go.
When I read other peoples' reviews of audiobooks, I look for similar thing. What they thought of the story and what they thought of the narrator. Both of these elements are need for audiobook reviews. Just like an actor can have a great performance in a bad movie, or a great screenplay can be performed by badly cast actors, the same is true with audiobooks. You don't really want to listen to some actress who sounds like she's 12 narrating an adult romance novel, do you? That's the kind of thing a reviewer can cover, which might not be quite so obvious in a library or Audible sample of an audiobook.
