Should Audiobooks include all the He said She said

  1. Yes, that narrator doesn't change the voice enough to tell

  2. No, it is redundant if there is a audio que.

    When listening to audiobooks sometimes i often wish they would edit out "___ said" when you know who said it because the voice the narrator has used has changed. It is technically abridged but so is removing stat sheet.

    The other issue I have are books that do not do not say who said what for each text. This error is even worse for the narrator because I have listened to them give the wrong voice for the text because there is no "____ said" to go along with it.

    It mostly gets to me when this MC was kept interrupting another main character, but without he said she said being included. Too many one line texts that have different authors on top of each other.

    Hmm would enjoy such a book, maybe book 2 in the series when you kinda know who is who.. and introduce those new chars carefully, so that me as a reader would not have to think WTF is going on and who is speaking..
    Simple is genius.. but would give this one a try..
    Any audio book that does this type of narration boys?
