Great Audiobook Narrators
Normally, this isn’t something I really focus on, but I’ve been listening to John Ringo’s Black Tide Rising series and Tristan Morris is amazing as a narrator. He does an extremely good job with different accents, ranging from southern US to British, Canadians, French, and what I assume to be Nepalese (there are Gurkhas in the story).

Anyone else have a narrator that really stood out as making the listen even better?


ETA: This is a different topic for this board.

I haven't heard the one you mentioned but Tom Stechschulte is very good. He did No Country for Old Men, the Road, Shutter Island, and The Left Hand of Darkness; that I've noticed so far.

Christian Rummel is an insanely good narrator. His voice work is such that you can instantly tell who's talking simply by what voice he uses.

He also narrates a lot of sci-fi, so I get to listen to him a lot.

Tristan Morris is the same.

You can differentiate males from females and individual males and females from each other. I can easily tell who the character is based on the voice work.

That doesn’t touch on his accents.

ditto on Tom. I love Scott Brick too.

Lee Horsley, the guy who did Lonesome Dove, was awesome, except he talked too loud for Woodrow Call. It was the perfect voice. Just too damned loud.

Jonathon Keeble is great as Bernard Cornwell's Utrid and his Arthur series.

He's great in the Theft of Swords trilogy and the other works by Sullivan

Him and Simon Vance from the Locke Lamora series are my favorites

RC Bray is one of the best. He has narrated some really good books including the Martin and the Expeditionary force series.

Scott Brick is very good as well.

Yes, Simon Vance is great. Narrates the Ian Fleming Bond series and Girl with Dragon Tattoo. I also think Michael Beck for Grisham novels and Will Patton for James Lee Burkes Dave Robicheaux series are great.

Absolutely, it's really well done. Neil Gaiman is in the cast and he may be the best author/narrator there is.

Simon Vance has been mentioned and I like him. He did all 20 of the Master and Commander series.

Also did many of Stephen King's Dark Tower books. Shame he wasn't around to finish the series.

Robin Sachs was phenomenal with this book. I’ve listened to it three times, even though it’s big. Just the perfect voice for English history.

re: Great Audiobook Narrators

This audiobook is also a pleasure to listen to thanks to the whimsical voice of the narrator.
