Cindy’s Favorite audiobook narrator!

April 1, 2020

Hi there!

Cindy from the library.  As some of you know I’m a big fan of John Sandford’s novels, especially the “Prey” series.  I really like the audiobook versions of these novels because of the narrator Richard Ferrone.  Did you know in Libby/Overdrive you can search for a book by the narrators name?  I did just that and found a number of other authors that Mr. Ferrone read for!  I listened to “The Good Guy” by Dean Koontz…and it was fantastic. There are also some Stuart Woods, Faye Kellerman, and others in the list.  I’m definitely going to give them a try!

You can find audiobooks narrated by Richard Ferrone on Libby/Overdrive, and on Hoopla.

A few of my favorite Audiobooks

I love listening to audiobooks! Whether I’m driving, taking a walk, or cleaning the house, audiobooks are there with me. And nothing makes or breaks an audiobook more than the narrator. Here are a few of my favorite audiobooks that combine just the right narrator with just the right book:

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeywell, narrated by Catherine McCarron (on Libby/Overdrive) The narrator has a lovely Scottish accent and has just the right tone for this sometimes funny, sometimes dark, very satisfying book.

The Dutch House by Ann Patchett, narrated by Tom Hanks!, (on Libby/Overdrive). Not surprisingly, Tom Hanks does a wonderful job narrating this moving story of a brother and sister and their complicated family. In particular Hanks’ narration helped me understand and empathize with the character of Danny more than I might have on the page.

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, narrated by Neil Gaiman (on Hoopla). If I could have Neil Gaiman narrate my whole life, I would. His voice is rich and magical and the perfect combination with this fantasy tale of a man who finds himself in London Below, a dark shadow world beneath London.

Neverwhere

Happy listening!
