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!!
