re: Great Audiobook Narrators
Back when npr didn't suck so bad there was a guy who was reading Gods and Angels every afternoon in my drive home.

Wish I could remember his name because he was amazing.

This.

If I don't have one of interest already, I just choose one narrated by TGR.

Also, the guy who does Sanderson's novels and the one who does The Dresden Files are really good.

There's nothing worse than having an interesting story and a terrible narrator. Derek Perkins is one, stay far away.

James Marsters. Good Call. Great voice for the detective-noire style of Dresden.

re: Great Audiobook Narrators
David McCullough in addition to being a great author is the GOAT narrator.

I enjoy Paul Michael's productions of the Dan Brown Langdon books

Jeremy Irons did the Alchemist and was magnificent.

For British lit, Martin Freeman does excellent with the hitchhikers series

He also did an uncomfortably spot on Humbert Humbert with Lolita.

Yes, Simon Vance is great


+1, I listened to a lot of Charles Dickens read by him, and also his reading of Kim by Kipling is great.


Another good Brit narrator is Ralph Cosham.

I hear the actor from Remember the Titans, Will Patton, is outstanding as an audiobook narrator.

Stephen Fry did an incredible job with the Harry Potter series. He's the best I've heard so far of about 200 audiobooks I've listened to.
