They are there and they are not.
They give almost the trees and the sky and the clouds and sunny winter day, yet in fact it is a puddle, and they are not the same.
They do give more (and also less), the more is the inflection and prononciation and how words blend together. I listen differently to the story, and I can listen again and again when something catches my ear.
Listening, instead of reading, is a new experience to me. A fascinating experience. A discovery.
