AUDIO BOOK: The Raven by Poe
is like the Project Gutenberg
of audio books: volunteers produce audio versions of works in the public domain and release the resulting MP3 under the Creative Commons
license. They have quite a stash of them by now, some of which are read by one person solo, and others of which are group affairs. The listening experience can vary widely depending on how good the narrator is (these are amateurs, and volunteers) but there are gems to be found. One of my favourites so far is the reading by Chris Goringe of Poe's classic poem The Raven
. He has a wonderful accent that really lends itself to this sort of thing.
