March 26: Audiobook Freebie
I love audiobooks and didn’t know which topic to focus on so I broke it up into smaller categories.
The books that got me hooked:
At first I used to only listen to books I had already read. The narration of theses books really enhanced the experience and my love for both trilogies.
1) Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown. Narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds.
2) All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. Narrated by Jennifer Ikeda.
The re-listens: (Besides the ones mentioned above.)
3)Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story written and narrated by Jewel.
4)The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe. Narrated by: B.J. Harrison
5) The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Narrated by: B.J. Harrison
Length: 52 hrs and 41 mins
My Favorite Narrators:
6) Jim Dale (Harry Potter series, U.S. edition.) His range of voices is outstanding. He has won awards and broke records for all the characters’ voices he created.
7) Tim Gerard Reynolds (Red Rising Trilogy.) He is the voice of Darrow. Also, you should hear his Ragnar. It feels like the boldtype.
8) B.J. Harrison (The Count of Monte Cristo.) After trying another version and giving up early on because of the monotone voice, Harrison’s upbeat narration and different characters made it hard to stop listening.
Suspense to make you jump in your seat. No, really:
9) The Shining by Stephen King. Narrated by Campbell Scott.
10) NOS4A2 A Novel by Joe Hill. Narrated by: Kate Mulgrew
