Choose your own adventure-style books are a staple of youth reading that brought heroic gains and tragic endings to many children. Now you can hear how your choice is being played with Audible's new Amazon capabilities.
If you grew up with choosing Choose Your Own Adventure books from Chooseco, you would certainly remember to keep your thumb and index finger on the previous pages in case (again) made the wrong choice. Simple and straightforward stories would often pause and show you two options and page numbers associated with them. The sense of control over history has always been the center of attraction, though there have been more bad endings than good ones.
Chooseco, the publisher behind the famous Choose Your Own Adventure books, has teamed up with Audible and Amazon to bring these stories to you Echoes. To install the skill, use the command "Alexa, Open Choose Your Own Adventure", and you have the choice between the first two available books Abominable Snowman and Journey Under the Sea ] both by RA Montgomery.
Since this is a skill, an adult must be present to give permission for the installation, but from there everything is direct. You hear music, sound effects and the story you read. In appropriate places, the story gives you choices, and Alexa beeps to indicate she's waiting for the answer.
The Alexa skill works on all Echo devices and is available today.
