Audio Book Week Day #4




Audiobook Week is  hosted by Jen at  Devourer of  Books.
The question for today is:
Who are your favorite narrators and why? What do you look for in a narrator? Have a preference between male or female narrators?



Since I am pretty new to audio  (how long can I use that excuse?)  I don't really have a list of favorites.
This morning I began,  " A Land More Kind Than Home"  and  there are 3 different narrators.  The first book that I listened to, in which they used that format (The Tiger's Wife)  kind of shocked me because I didn't realize it was going to happen.  Once I got over the shock  I really liked it.    It works well  in this book also.
I think male or female.... it all depends on the story.  I don't really have a preference.

Now I feel I must step aside, recommend, put a plug in for....some real narrator love.
Check this out ---The Literate Housewife.

I feel as if Simon Vance should be my favorite too!!
