Audiobooks were featured on NPR’s Morning Edition as part of the Open Mic series today – an awesome program  featuring two of the best author / narrators, Neil Gaiman and David Serdaris, both winners of the Audio Publishers Association’s Audie Award.  Also part of the program are host Renee Montagne; professional narrator Martin Jarvis, who narrates the audiobook of Gaiman and Terry Pratchet’s Good Omens; audiobook director Rick Harris and’s Don Katz. Listen in to the whole seven-minute program right here , or read the transcript here. A lovely homage to the power of the spoken word.

  1. I recently finished listening to ‘Her Fearful Symmetry’ by Audrey Niffenegger which is read by Bianca Amata. It was incredibly read and a fascinating story.

  2.' Amanda says:

    I love listening to Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, and read by Davina Porter. It’s an amazing production.

  3.' Adrienne Warner says:

    Christopher Paul Curtis’ Bud, Not Buddy was so thoroughly enjoyable. The performer, James Avery, pulled me into this story and I think it’s the best Audio I’ve heard.
