Trying to figure out whether, as so many on Twitter seem to believe, there is a clue in RA’s trio of tweets from today,
- “Never be mean in anything; never be false; never be cruel. Avoid those three vices and I can always be hopeful of you” Dickens D Copperfield
.@audible.com “There can’t be a quarrel without two parties, and I won’t be one. I will be a friend to you in spite of you…
.@audible.com So now you know what you’ve got to expect” ― Charles Dickens, David Copperfield
Hmmm. Is he offering literary quotes for some kind of Cybersmile initiative? Why did he tag Audible.com? I immediately went on over to Audible to see whether there is any news there, as my preferred interpretation would always be an unabridged audiobook, and an unabridged David Copperfield is probably adequate for 30 or more hours of Richard-time… but they have at least 25 different audio versions of this book, and some are relatively recent and by narrating heavy-weights. That is to say, some pretty amazing narrators. Simon Vance, Nicholas Boulton are both so good I’ve listened to new authors just to hear them narrate a book.
I guess we’ll wait and see. I must admit, another audiobook, no matter the book, narrated by Richard Armitage is on my highly-hoped-for list. I hope that’s what we’ve “got to expect” because it would be awesome. I’ve missed that voice.
