A FEW THOUGHTS ON AUDIOBOOKS AND ADAPTING BOOKS TO OTHER MEDIA

I was giving some thought to various ways and means of reaching out from one mind to many. Working backward from the polished productions that we see everyday on television, the movies, on stage and even music these ideas all start on paper ( or it's modern equivalent on the computer). In a sense the written word is the fountainhead. The purest most complete form of any work is when the original formulation of the ideas are developed into the works of art that we will eventually enjoy.

In this sense our Book Channel slogans "there is a world of ideas in books" & "where print comes to life" rings true.

Structurally you must first put pen to paper ( or fingers to keyboard) to get an idea out of your mind. Next step, look at that content, read it and see if it parses, if it makes sense, if it makes your point. You write and edit until you have your best presentation of your ideas.
To conclude our example our author continues to create his manuscript. Submits it to the publisher and a new book is born.

This book will be the best, fullest and most detailed presentation of the story or ideas presented by the author. When this book is made into a movie the book will have to be rewritten into a screenplay that leaves out parts of the (books) story leaving out some of what the author thought important enough to included in the book.
In television we add to the compromises of the screen play to the limitations of time and the need to reach a mass audience. That will require subtletys of the story and complicated or unpopular ideas will have to be removed from the story and the story simplified to make a successful teleplay. Other then reading the book yourself the purest form of translating an authors work is to listen to an audiobook.

An unabridged audiobook presents the full, un-modified book. Every word presented exactly as the author had intended.

To conclude with another of our slogans " Let us do the reading for you on the Radio Book Channel.
