Navigating narrators

I don't know how many of you are audiobook fans (am I alone? I hope not), but I belong to that camp--there's something about being able to listen to someone tell you a story that is completely different from reading a physical book. If you're new to the a-book camp, you might want to check this list of awesome narrators for delicious books. My personal favorites off this list include:
Not Scary Enough: Joe Mantegna reads Steven King’s Thinner
OK, Too Scary: Willem Dafoe reads Steven King’s The Langoliers
Ah, Willem Dafoe, you scare the crap out of me. Especially as a lady.


  1. I love a-books. It's the only thing that keeps me from running off the treadmill. I'm listening to The Help and it would not be the same without those deep southern accents, slow and thick, like molasses.

  2. I've never done an audio book, probably because I have this sneaky suspicion that I would zone out unless I took notes. (It would be school/college all over again.)

    And I'm in agreement that Dafoe is one creepy mofo.
