Audiobooks with multiple narrators

MulitNarrCovers
I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Some are like sitcoms: they’re entertaining while they’re on, but they don’t really stick with you. But then, there are some that are really well done and make a big impression. It struck me recently, during a conversation with a friend about Kathryn Stockett’s The Help, that many of the audiobooks that have really stood out for me have had multiple narrators. Octavia Spencer, one of the 4 narrators of The Help, will also appear as an actress in the upcoming movie version.

I find multiple narrators can really add something to a story. Sometimes it helps the listener keep multiple characters, points of view or time periods from getting confusing. Here’s a list of some of the audiobooks with multiple narrators available in the Minuteman Library Network.

    The first audio book I ever listened to was “Lady of Avalon” but that was a long time ago and it only had one narrator.
