I have to say that Engulfed isn’t my favourite of David Sedaris’s memoire pieces, but I am still finding parts of it funny and fun to listen to. I love that he is performing it himself. So that is a big tick there for the finding an amusing audiobook. I think what I love most about him is his very dry wit. I have a dry wit. It wasn’t always appreciated in America. Now I understand why we both live in Europe. I always forget that Amy is his sister. I also love her.
I am also trying to figure out what film I want to go and see. It turns out since I stopped checking films, every film I want to see is now out. My two top pics though are Hidden Figures and Viceroy’s House. I’d love to see Moonlight after all the controversy and I really want to see Fences, but it looks like their screenings here will be very limited. Logan, well, I can’t imagine it going anywhere any time soon.
Yesterday was a perfect evening of nothingtude. We got Chinese food takeaway from our favourite place, ate and finally watched the film Wild after listening to the audiobook. I loved the book. The film was good, but I still loved the book, when it was read to me.
I have been trying for quite some time to figure out why I love to watch and listen to things more than I like to read them. I think it is because I must be primarily an auditory learner. If I watch a documentary, or listen to an audiobook, it is more likely that it will stick with me than reading a book. I used to feel like an imposter in higher education environments, like I was incapable of learning. I no longer think that is true, just that I enjoy learning in a different way. To me, there is nothing more special than someone telling me a story.
