Favorite audio book narrators

I have a long commute to work and so I’ve listened to a lot of recorded books. Here are my two favorite narrators for audio books.

John McDonough, narrator of the Mitford series by Jan Karon.

Rob Inglis, narrator of J. R. R. Tolkien’s books The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Both gentlemen are pleasant to listen to. They both develop unique voices for a large cast of characters, making it easier to follow their novels while driving.

  1. John,
    Thanks for mentioning the Mitford books. I’d never heard of them before, and having looked them up, I think a few tomes from that series would make a nice Christmas present for my wife.

    She’s currently enjoying the Thrush Green series by Miss Read: it looks like the Mitford books come from the same genre.

  2. Another excellent audiobook reader is George Guidall. Every book that he narrates, he makes it an enjoyable experience. Thanks for the insight on Rob Inglis. I am going to listen to “The Tombs of Atuan” by Ursula LeGuin. It’s in the same vein as Lord of the Rings, so it should be good.
