Audiobooks - May 22nd 2012, 11:23 PM

I'm into audiobooks. The thing is a lot of the ones I find seem to have the worst narrators -_____- they all seem bored of what they're reading.

Does anyone know of decent audiobooks where the narrator doesn't sound like they're going to fall asleep?

I'm into fantasy.

The narrator for the version of Dracula by Brahm stoker that I have is really good and does different voices for each character but not in an annoying way. I got it in iTunes. It is the Dracula unabridged the version by Great Literary Classics. It has a Marion background with yellow on it.

My all time favorite audiobook is Trickster's Choice! It is amazing! The narrator does a really good job with pronunciation and engaging the listener with pitch.

It's not quite fantasy, but The Tiger In The Well by Philip Pullman has a good narrator And The Dark Materials trilogy have really good dramatisations by the BBC

Re: Audiobooks - May 29th 2012, 05:11 PM

Actually, I've only ever downloaded one audiobook. I've gone through my purchases on iTunes and cannot find it throughout my purchase history. I can't remember who wrote it, but it was so good that I listened to it and nothing else for a whole week. I believe that this was prior to the Audiobooks section of iTunes, and it was a podcast/on-going-bookcast type thing. I don't know if anyone has ever listened to it, but from what I remember, it was about a drilling/mining company on another planet that discovers some element. Corportate espionage ensues, and you get the rest. The narrator was a male, and I believe, also the author. Any ideas? EDIT: FOUND IT! 'Earthcore' by Scott Sigler (free on iTunes under podcasts). It was so great. Worth checking out.

Sorry for my lack of contribution, but this is all I know and I don't even know it! Hah.
