Audio Obsession #9. Audiobooks with multiple narration.

Audio Obsession is a feature where I spread my love for audiobooks around blogosphere. Here you’ll see all things audio related.

If you know me at all you know that I love audiobooks, and I try to get more people to listen to audio format. Several of my friends complained that they have problems getting into the story, when one narrator performs several characters. So I’ve made a list of audiobooks with multiple narration. I’ve listened to several of them myself; others are praised by my fellow audiobook lovers. Click on the cover and you’ll find the book on GR.

  1. I generally don’t have the patience for audiobooks. I tried one recently and found that I can’t seem to multitask when listening to them which defeats the purpose for me sadly. But my husband loves audiobooks. He rarely reads actual physical books. Illuminae is one that he loved, in particular for the massive cast of characters. So much effort goes into some of these productions. Reminds me of the old radio serials they used to have that your parents would tell you about when they were young.

  2. Ohhh I don’t know how to feel about multiple narration yet. XD Hehe. I DID like it in The Golden Compass because that was like this completely dramatised one which was awesome. And then it was okay in Wink Poppy Midnight, but I ended up preferring one narrator’s voice and always wishing it’d get back to him. STILL!! I really want to listen to Illuminae at some point. Eeeep. 😀

  3. The Smell of Other People is the only one I’ve read from this list, but I do have Illuminae and I can’t wait to listen to the audio when Gemina comes out. I need to do Six of Crows as well since I love that book.
    Great list, Ksenia!

  4. Oh I love The Serpent King! I read the book though. I did listen to Six of Crows and because the story is a bit more convoluted, I’m glad i chose to listen to it.

  5. I love audio books and love multiple narrators as well. I haven’t listened to any of these but I do have Six of Crows on audio and have heard nothing but great things. Thanks for sharing!!

  6. I still have yet to listen to an audiobook Ksenia! I think it’s the length. They’re so much longer in audiobook form than they are in print, and I’m already struggling with time management! One of these days I would like to try one though, and I think Six of Crows would be a great one to start with. LOVED that book!

  7. Red Hill and One Plus One were wonderful. I just wish that if there’s multiple narrators that they would do their part throughout the whole book, like the Fever series. Great post, Ksenia! :)

  8. I love audio books as well! I kind of got away from them for a bit but I find myself gravitating toward them in the summertime. I love to walk and garden while listening.

  9. I am addicted to them, and you have some excellent recommendations I would add The Others series by Anne Bishop, any of Ilona Andrews books, and The Accident Season
