Audiobooks with Amazing Casts
For those who love a great audiobook cast, George Saunders's new novel Lincoln in the Bardo seems especially appealing: The audiobook will feature a cast of 166 narrators including the voices of Nick Offerman, David Sedaris, Lena Dunham, Ben Stiller, Julianne Moore, Mary Karr, Don Cheadle, and the author himself.
"I love the way that the variety of contemporary American voices mimics and underscores the feeling I tried to evoke in the book: a sort of American chorale," Saunders told TIME, adding that there is one voice for every character in his book. The Lincoln in the Bardo audiobook goes on sale on February 14.
With Saunders's new audiobook possibly becoming a new Guinness World Record holder for most individuals' voices on an audiobook (his publisher is applying for the distinction), it made us think of more great casts to add to our playlists.
