message 1: by Eric (new)

Eric Booth Kate Reading for me. She was the lady who read the Furies of Caldoran and The Wheel of Time series.


message 2: by Liam (new)

Liam Johnstone American Gods read by George Guidall is my favourite audiobook.


message 3: by Ryan (new)

Ryan C I was about to write in George Guidall due to his Dark Tower stuff. :)


message 4: by Adrian (new)

Adrian Pienaru Even though Simon Vance is my favorite reader, Stefan Rudnicki is also great, the fact that he's read almost 300 books doesn't hurt either. :)

I was actually also thinking of Stefan Rudnicki


message 6: by Tamahome (last edited May 16, 2012 05:47AM) (new)

Tamahome I wrote in Katherine Kellgren. She does an impressive Welsh accent for Among Others. audiobook But I want to be Stefan Rudnicki.


message 7: by Michael (last edited May 16, 2012 08:31AM) (new)

Michael My favourite audiobook narrator is John Lee who reads Peter F Hamilton's Commonwealth Saga and most of Alastair Reynolds's Revelation Space Series.
I also very much enjoyed Neil Gaiman's narration of Neverwhere.
If I have to limit myself to the narrators mentioned in the poll: Simon Vance


message 8: by Andrew (new)

Andrew I haven't listening to all of these people, but Roy Dotrice is absolutely amazing. He brings the Game of Thrones books to a whole new level.


message 9: by Tamahome (new)

Tamahome Roy Dotrice does have a record for the most accents in one audiobook, Game of Thrones.


message 10: by Matthew (new)

Matthew McAlpine I find that the best narrator for a book is usually the book's author. I absolutely loved Douglas Adams reading the Hitchhiker's Guide books.


message 11: by P. Aaron (new)

P. Aaron Potter Can't agree - sometimes an author's spoken voice doesn't match their written one. Amy Tan's a terrible reader of her own work, for instance.
Gotta give props to Jim Dale, who I think really elevated the whole art of the audio book.


message 12: by Been (new)

Been Kevin Pariseau. Bitter Seeds was a great book, but it was his voices and narration that really made it for me.


message 13: by Skip (new)

Skip Michael Kramer and Kate Reading for the WOT books, and James Marsters for Dresden (he completely nails Harry's voice and pacing IMHO).


message 14: by Jason (new)

Jason Dotrice is just superb.

message 16: by JoJo (new)

JoJo Laforte People are sleeping on Guidall.
