Audio Book Week Day #3

Today we are half way thru the week and Jen at Devourer of Books has a quick meme for us to fill out.  Be sure and hop on over to her site to see the linky and check out what others are saying.

Here are my answers:

1. Current/most recent audiobook:
Catherine the Great  by Robert Massie

2. Impressions:
I am reading/listening to this one for book club.  While the narrator is great (Mark Deakins), it's been 23 hours of a  Russian history lesson and while interesting, just a bit long and kind of dry at times.

3. Current/most recent favorite audiobook:
I really  loved  "A Grown Up Kind of Pretty" by Joshilyn Jackson.  It was also narrated by her.  I thought she did a great job.

4. Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:
My favorite narrator has been  Cassandra Campbell.  She's done quite a few narrations, but I've only listened to "Lucia, Lucia" by Adriana Trigiani.

5. One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist:
Last night I downloaded: A Land More Kind Than Home and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.  I can't wait to listen to these two!

6. Your audio dream team (what book or author would you LOVE to see paired with a certain narrator, can already exist or not):
OMG!  I don't know.  I think  I'm still too new to knowing who the narrators are.  I can tell you that after this year's 'audio week',  I'll be paying more attention, as narration is a huge theme so far this week.

Cassandra Campbell is one of my favorite narrators, too! She did a fabulous job with You Know When the Men are Gone.

I'm not sure I could do a book like Catherine the Great on audio. Kudos to you for listening to it!
