Audioboooks and the Return of Storytelling

 

23AUDIO-master495

After reading this, I have to wonder what the future narrative of literature might entail. Two possibilities occur:

  • In dwelling more on story than the language of story, will we be seeing a more right-brain approach to literature; i.e., a more sensory, less intellectual experience for “readers”?
  • Will education become a trait of the more affluent, the ones with the more opportunity? And will their education-induced wisdom be passed on in an oral way to the less opportunity endowed, the less literate, in story form?

Your comments, readers and writers?
