Audio Book vs Audio Drama
in medias res continues its audio book obsession with a look into an emerging trend in the audio book world: audio dramas.
What’s the difference between an audio book and an audio drama?
A lot apparently. An audio book started out life as a book. Not a comic book or a screen play but a book. A book that sometime narrated. A book that included actual description of important things like wtf is going on in the action sequences, some kind of introduction to who the characters are and some reason to care about them.
Audio dramas start out life as a graphic novel or screenplay. They are meant to be accompanied by visuals. The visual element is the important part of these works. Audio productions have no visual element. They are pure sound. Do you see a problem? I do and I’m not alone.
