Do you listen to audiobooks /lit/?

I've tried to, but unless the narrator has a deep baritone voice, I find them absolutely unlistenable; female voices particularly are terrible.

Honestly The Disaster Artist is probably the only book made better in audio form due to Greg's fantastic Tommy impressions as well as narrating his own story.

Female voices are simply inferior to male in all respects. It's because women simply don't understand the ethical, aesthetic, and spiritual import of being a human being.

They're like dogs or children, simply inferior, and barely more conscious than rocks.

Let's face it, they're only wet holes and otherwise worthless

I'm as red-pilled as anyone, i acknowledge that women are more inclined to certain characteristics but much of it has to do with behavior like yours.
They're not all bad.

You might have a daughter some day.

as if women were allowed to be philosophers because of people like you...

>Its just ignorant is what it is.
No. Men built Western civilization while women were worthless holes. That's a scientific fact
>I'm as red-pilled as anyone, i acknowledge that women are more inclined to certain characteristics but much of it has to do with behavior like yours.
It's not that they're different, it's that they're inherently inferior to someone like me
>They're not all bad.
They unequivocally are
>You might have a daughter some day.
I hope not. Girls these days will have taken upwards of 400 dicks before they exit high school

Face it, if you have a woman read anything to you, you're a beta cuckold liberal

Strong argument. Liberal logic, everyone

See above. No arguments to the contrary.

It was my mom's fault, who is directly under the influence of feminism (which is destroying Western civilization)

I listen to audio books as I deliver pizzas and it allows me to justify holding such an otherwise mediocre position. The narrator definitely has a significant responsibility as they can make a good book bad or vice versa.

Right now I am listening to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and although I'm not sure of the narrator's name, I find him captivating for the manner with which he adopts different tones for different characters.

I recommend that you listen to the audio book of a collection of Edgar Allan Poe's works. That has remained my favorite of the many I've listened to.
>>

loool all this projection on liberals and women
its like a cartoon or something...

I'm most likely more conservative than you are, you fucking retard. I'm just not a mouth-breathing mongoloid with mommy issues trying to pass himself off as an intellectual.

And I'm not going to debate you, I don't need to be validated and I don't want to feed your validation. You're like that fucking nigger who thinks the world is flat with his WE WUZ KINGZ bullshit. You don't want information, you want a narrative you can jerk it to. Why don't you read some Jack Donovan and kill yourself, you fucking faggot?

Yeah you can't beat audio books in a wagecuck scenario if you can get away with it. If you do need hearing you can always just use one ear bud.

I found the male with a British accent orating the Queens Engrish is about as good as it gets even though David Attenborough makes me feel ill.

Or just driving. I drive a shitload for my job, average about 30 hours a week. Audiobooks are the only thing that keeps me sane. Northern Alberta is empty, so empty.

GJ 4chan, this board officially sucks ass
>>
>>7628601
Agreed. I found the man, my nigga, who has serenaded me innumerably by reading a variety of Poe's work: Basil Rathbone. I can stay a wagecuck for life if it means having that sonorous voice filling the car. Listen to him read the Raven or Cask of Amontillado and find yourself enamored as I have been for as long as I can remember.

i once knew a dude who made a living "walking dogs" which is a nice way of saying he'd scoop up dog shit all day for rich brooklynites who couldn't be bothered with such base things....he never went to college but he was smart than most "elite" college homos u meet in the city, his secret was listening to audiobooks while he walking around waiting for turds to fall

>female voices particularly are terrible.

I really prefer a woman's voice in audiobooks, especially if they sound attractive and not stupid. Something about having a man's voice so intimately in my head that isn't my own is uncomforting. Especially if there are woman characters because it is so odd to have those male narrators jump a few octaves for women characters especially if they are saying something romantic.

On the other hand, I can't imagine a woman reading a funny book well and I have enjoyed male narrators more intensively if less often. It is kind of like cooking, women are generally better at it but a few men are still the best in it. That is the way a lot of things are.

Also don't be so gay OP
>>
>>7629193
Sounds like a quality man. Delivering pizzas is based though and certainly easier than walking dogs, especially if you are in a suburban environment where the tips are heavy and the roads empty. It's unfortunate that of all the people I've worked with, only one other took advantage of the position by listening to audio books; most seem to inexplicably prefer pop songs on the radio. Sometimes I get a while to do some writing when the store isn't busy. Maybe one day I'll use my degree to get another job though.

>Basil Rathbone
He's named after an herb.

>He posted a message on Facebook threatening to kill himself. I think he has been bullied online.
>>
>>7629209
You are mistaken my friend. Rathbone died long before the advent of Facebook.
>>
>>7629220
No I heard it on a TV show my dad is watching and decided to type it here. Isn't it a funny plot device?
>>
>>7629205
I don't like female voices because they're too high pitched. A woman with a deep voice might do a good narration, but I have yet to hear that.
>>
Possible stupid question, but

Wheres a good place to download audiobooks?
>>
>>7628470
There is nothing I love more than girls reading to me. My gf has a vaguely throaty voice, think Nathan For You but in a subtle and adorable way, and she reads me things and I like it
>>
>I detest women's voices in audiobooks because I vehemently despise women
>I prefer women's voices in audiobooks because listening to a dude's voice for so long is gay

I don't know what to say

I like my audiobooks read by the author. Otherwise it comes off as kind of weird.

If you are a tumblrite, sure. As a point of generality, its hard to make anything but an "ugh, misogyny" argument against it. Why? Because people are generally terrible and women are people and men are generally the ones to distill what they see in life and build something better from the base components. This does not mean that most men aren't the subhuman garbage they are, just that the majority who aren't garbage are men.

Actors work well for books written in first person. If the actor could realistically be cast as that actor in a film, it perfect fits.
