Most recent audiobook:
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, narrated by Rebecca Lowman and Sunil Malhotra
I really enjoyed this book, and I liked both of the narrators in their respective roles. My only complaint would that Malhotra (who narrates the chapters from Park’s point of view) does the voice of Eleanor in a very girly and slightly ridiculous way, like a guy pretending to be girl–which of course he is, technically. Otherwise, I loved it, and Rowell has talked here about how much she enjoyed the audiobook, too.
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, narrated by Jayne Entwistle
I just downloaded this one from my library website yesterday, so I can’t say yet if I’ll like it. I’ve heard good things about this mystery series, though. Has anyone listened to other books by this narrator?
Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:
Mark Bramhall, who narrates the character of Clem Barefield in A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash. I could listen to his voice all day–it’s kind of deep and gravely and just lovely, and he does an amazing Southern accent. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more audiobooks that he has narrated.
One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack:
I downloaded two Georgette Heyer books that are narrated by (sigh) Richard Armitage, and I’ve been saving them for a rainy day. A rainy day when I have several free hours to sit and listen to John Thornton whispering in my ear.
