Assignment: Fully cast and Cinematic/Original
We will be discussing full cast and cinematic audiobooks. A full cast audiobook uses the text of a book, but is read by a full cast of actors as opposed to a single narrator. A cinematic audiobook, also referred to as an audio drama, are scripted to be listened to and typically remove the narrative portions of the text and add music or sound effects.
Please listen to 1-2 audiobooks. Below is a list of suggested titles, but you are free to choose any title that falls within either category.
Suggested titles: Feel free to use a title off this list or select one of your own.
