tenoko1: (GW:Zechs- rofl He's reading Twilight)
Okay, so I'm currently listening to the audiobook for Twilight. First off, I loved the book, I know it's not for everyone. I hate Stephen King. It happens. The audiobook is quite bad, imo. She's killing the story. She's a really terrible narrator, I mean, so many podficcers are so much better. Bella is funny, has a temper, and fairly sarcastic. When Bella is using dry, sarcastic humor that is HYSTERICAL... the narrator just makes her sound bitchy. When Edward is being cocky and teasing, it comes out uncertain and confused. I'm like, "Did she READ the book before she narrated it?! You're suppose to READ the story FIRST!!"

But I digress, as my disappointment with the audiobook is not the point of this entry. I'm wondering when Twilight came out in accordance to Supernatural. Because in the first quarter of the book alone there have been a Dean, Sam, Rachel, Jessica, Mike (Michael), and Becky. And I'm going "hunter, hunter, angel, dead, archangel, fangirl". It has to be a coincidence, they are fairly basic names, I guess, but that's SIX characters from my show in the first quarter of this book. How often do you read a book that one character is the same as your favorite show or something, but SIX?!

Third, I'm about to put in an audio audition, does anyone here do it professionally or have they in the past? I have some questions. Secondly, I have to read a "gender appropriate" book for my reading and I'm trying to decide which book. I'm female, btw. Granted, all the reading I've done until now has dealt with a mostly male cast (Supernatural) and I think we as poddficcers do a wonderful job, regardless of our genders or the characters, I never think "Oh hey, why is a girl reading playful banter between these two brothers? That's not gender appropriate."
