So, an audiobook can be attributed to the narrator rather than to the author?

Moloch | 2783 comments The primary author in this case is correctly Jane Austen. We add also "authors" (Goodreads calls them this way) who contributed, in different roles, to a particular edition: translators, illustrators, contributors in anthologies, authors of notes, foreword, etc, and also narrators in audiobooks.

It is not mandatory to add those (the only one that is needed to save a record is the primary author), but it is certainly more accurate and informative if they are added.
