Notable Narrators

I haven’t been listening to audiobooks forever, but I’ve been lucky enough to come across some fantastic narrators (and some less than fantastic narrators). These are some of the notable narrators I’ve spent some time with (but by no means are these all of them). The images link to my review.

  • The person I want narrating my life:

Robertson Dean

  • The time I was really looking forward to a certain narrator and I ended up incredibly disappointed:
James Marsters
  • The narrator I would have sworn was Australian.
Justine Eyre
  • The time the author was actually a great narrator.

Neil Gaiman

  • But then there was the time someone else narrated his work even better:

Lenny Henry

    I’m so with you on both Neil Gaiman and Lenny Henry, just perfect! James Marsters was really good for the Storm books as well.

    I’m not familiar with these books or narrators, but I have listened to audios by the same author but different narrators. Some are definitely better than others!

    AMERICA AMERICA was one of my very first audiobooks. Why haven’t I listened to anything that Robertson Dean has narrated since then???

    Lenny Henry is THE EPITOME of a narrator. He is what narrating is all about…he is amazing. He made what I would call a strange and a little silly book into some kind of experience. I want more of him!
