Audiobooks with Excellent Narrators

November 2, 2017


Do you listen to audiobooks? I am a ravenous fan, and always have one on the go. Some books are just brought to life when a talented performer reads them to you. Similarly, a bad narrator can completely ruin a good book. After several years of Audible membership, I have accumulated a list of some of the narrators I think make an audiobook, dare I say it, even better than one on paper (or your e-reader).

Happy listening!
