One year ago, I listened to one of the Letters of Note collections for the first time. These are collections of letters, the first ones compiled online and then published as books and audiobooks that became so popular that there are live events that fill places like the Royal Albert Hall. The editor is [[Shaun Usher]].
The one I listened to last year was [Letters of Note - Music] and I just absolutely adored it, so it was high time I listened to another one.

The letters in this collection span more than 200 years and were written by people from many walks of life. There are famous writers such as Nelson Mandela, Napoleon, Frida Kahlo and Ludwig van Beethoven, but also people who are not that well known.
The letters were brought to life by stellar readers such as Juliet Stevenson, Mark Strong, Clarke Peters and Toby Jones.

Because I loved the previous one I listened to so much, I went into this with high expectations, and they were mostly met, although this time the topic made for a different experience: Listening to love letters means to learn about some people's most private thoughts, often vulnerable and fragile, and sometimes it was a bit hard to understand the letters without knowing the writers and their particular situation. I would also have wished for a more varied selection, as it seems to be on the heavy side, featuring a lot of sad and desperate letters - there must be more joyful love letters out there?
But despite this criticism, it was a stellar experience to listen to this audiobook and I will definitely continue listening to this series. There are so many topics to choose from!

Reading the letters as a book, including, as I understand, facsimiles and pictures, must be wonderful as well, but I just love listening to them, especially because of the fantastic performance of the readers.

The audiobook includes some audio-exclusive material from live events: Three letters read by Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch and Louise Brealey and the song "Love Letter" performed by Nick Cave. ( )

This was a delightful listen. It is a colleciton of letters on the subject of love. The idea springs from the "Letters of Note" project, which aims to encourage the art of letter writing in an age when it is diminishing by showing great examples from the past and present. They were all introduced so that you knew who the writer and recipeient were, their relationship and the date that it was written. Some of them are beautiful and express the inexpressible in the best ways possible. Love in all its forms is expressed here. The most moving was the most recent, where she wrote a letter to her dead husband, a photojournalist killed in Syria. Others made me smile or laugh in recognition. This was a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a few hours and I'd love to listen to one of the series (hint hint). ( )
