This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is:
Well, it’s an audio freebie! So I’ve decided to have a list of audiobooks with more than one narrator that I’ve loved listening to.
As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride – Cary Elwes
This was probably the first audiobook I listened to which had more than one narrator. Elwes’ voices is already pleasant enough to listen to on its own but the audiobook was especially fun because of all the different cast members talking about their memories of the movie. It was also fun to listen to Elwes’ imitations of some of the actors and crew members.
Lincoln in the Bardo – George Saunders
Now I really think I would have found this an incredibly hard book to read. The audiobook is still a bit of an intense listen but the narration by 166 readers (!) helps. Among the voices are Nick Offerman, Julianne Moore, Don Cheadle, and George Saunders himself. It is quite an experience!
Beastie Boys Book – Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz
Now I am not a huge Beastie Boys fan but I wanted to listen to this book! What an incredible group that has come together to read this book. I loved listening to Jarvis Cocker as he read about the Beastie Boys’ first time in England. To Wanda Sykes, Bette Midler, Talib Kweli, Rosie Perez, Rev Run and more read from the book. What an audiobook!
The Greatest Love Story Ever Told – Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman
Ok so this one only has two narrators but they have such chemistry and it’s such a delight to listen to them just talk to each other, which is what a lot of this audiobook is, a conversation between a married couple. And it’s just so much fun to listen to their banter!
Yes Please – Amy Poehler
The reason I listened to this is because Patrick Stewart reads haiku. Yep. That’s the only reason. But in the end it was a fun enough listen, with other guest voices like Carol Burnett and Kathleen Turner appearing as well.
