The Best Sci-fi/Fantasy Audiobooks – Updated Regularly



I listen to a lot of audio books. I decided to make a list that I wish I had when I started listening to them. So this is for you, person like me a couple years ago. I will update it as I finish more books. Note: Many of these books are good for teens and some tweens, but if I call one dark, it’s dark.

Also, this list doesn’t contain classics (read years ago) so check out the comments section for those recommendations. And please add your own favorites to round out the list.

Favorites for Most – Most sci-fi/fantasy fans will love these

Kingkiller Chronicles – Patrick Rothfuss – Narrated by Nick Podehl

These books are some of the best fantasy out there. The protagonist is brilliant, in part because he works at it, not because he’s some chosen one. I liked the second book even better than the first. The narrator Nick Podehl is fantastic. He has a younger voice (rare in audiobooks) that nails the main character. These books have more amazing quotes in them than any other books I’ve read. Everyone should read these. Note: the third book is not written yet.

A Song of Ice and FireGeorge R. R. Martin – Narrated by Roy Dotrice

Wonderful story, as everyone knows, and great narration. But be warned: Book 4 was originally read by John Lee and the fans rioted. Finally they recorded it again with Roy Dotrice but the new reviews say he did a terrible job. So I have not listened to book 4 by Roy Dotrice. As far as the other books go, Roy Dotrice is amazing, as long as you don’t mind the occasional bad female voice or comical pirate voice. Also, Roy Dotrice makes a little cameo in the HBO show as the pyromancer (and he’s adorable!)

The Stormlight Archive – Brandon Sanderson – Narrated by Kate ReadingMichael Kramer

This was my first taste of true high fantasy and it blew my mind. I instantly became a Sanderson fan. Michael Kramer is phenomenal. Kate Reading drove me a little crazy with her strange accent that isn’t really an accent, but it grew on me and when her story line got going, it really got good. It’s super long (bonus!) and all of it is amazing. Book two starts out a bit young adult, but it matures as it goes and does not disappoint.


Favorites for Many – Many sci-fi/fantasy fans love these

Mistborn Series – Brandon Sanderson – Narrated by Michael Kramer

After reading The Way of Kings I looked up what else Sanderson had written. I found Mistborn and a couple books at the end of the Wheel of Time series. Well, the Wheel of Time series is 15 books long, so no way in hell will I ever read that. So Mistborn it was! And it was fabulous! It was less polished than The Way of Kings, but it was nice seeing Sanderson’s path in it. Mistborn also has one of the most creative and well thought out universes and systems of magic I have ever heard of. It’s so brilliant. As usual, Michael Kramer is amazing.

The Dagger and the Coin Series – Daniel Abraham – Narrated By Pete Bradbury

These books are freaking clever. Brilliant in many ways. They hit on all the themes I love in my sci-fi/fantasy: War, gray characters, and an innovative magic system. Pete Bradbury is wonderful. After the second book, Bradbury became one of my favorite narrators. I highly recommend these books. — Update: I am re-reading these books. They are even better the second time around. Also, the characters are almost all adults, which is rare in fantasy.

Riyria Revelations – by Michael J. Sullivan – Narrated By Tim Gerard Reynolds

These three books are beautifully written, easy to listen to, and almost entirely PG. That said, there are some real deaths, and it’s main characters are (awesome) adults. I highly recommend these to anyone that doesn’t need some serious dark in their fantasy. Reynolds masterfully narrates these, with perfect voices for the two main characters.

Farseer Trilogy – by Robin Hobb – Narrated by: Paul Boehmer

These books are all about the characters, their internal struggles and their relationships to each other. Robin Hobb’s style is unique and engaging, with beautiful insight into how we humans think. Paul Boehmer is amazing. One of the best narrators ever. So much diversity in each voice without sounding exaggerated. Brilliant.

Ready Player One – by Ernest Cline – Narrated by Wil Wheaton

Ready Player One starts out like an 80’s geek encyclopedia, but then the story kicks in and it’s wonderful. It is a very fun read and it’s dystopian future is fabulous. It’s a perfect book to listen to with friends and family (I think tween’s and up.) Wil Wheaton was perfect for the narration.

Discworld Watch Novels – Terry Pratchett – Narrated by Nigel Planer and later by Stephen Briggs

My friends all told me to skip a bunch of the Discworld books and get to The Night Watch. They gave me this handy little graphic to help me figure out the order. If you are looking for witty humor mixed with some very appealing characters, these are for you. It’s an intelligent, funny read with some great quotes/thoughts that will stick with you. The narrator, Nigel Planer, is freaking stellar. My god he’s so good.

Update: The narrator changes at The Fifth Elephant to Stephen Briggs, who is just as brilliant. I mean blow you away good, just like Planer.

Storm Front: The Dresden Files – Jim Butcher – Narrated by James Marsters

James Marsters was a perfect narrator for this book. But it was just not for me. I am not into crime stories. If you are, you will love it! Lots of carcasses and sexual innuendo. And some not innuendo sex.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel – by Neil Gaiman – Narrated by Neil Gaiman

This is a great book for anyone that likes magic+children+horror. I am glad I read it for Gaiman’s take on death and the soul. He did an impressive narration. He even did distinct voices and accents.

Redshirts – by John Scalzi – Narrated by Wil Wheaton

If you are looking for a mind bending, crazy fun, sci-fi book, this would be a great choice. Wil Wheaton does a great job narrating though he doesn’t make any attempt at female voices, which makes it hard at first since they go by last names in this book (hard to remember who’s a woman.)

Off to be the Wizard – by: Scott Meyer – Narrated by: Luke Daniels

This is a very clever, charming and funny book. One of the more genuinely funny books on this list. Luke Daniels does a superb job with the comedic timing and the voices are great.

Chronicle of the Unhewn Thrown series – by: Brian Staveley – Narrated by: Simon Vance

Some of the accents in this series made it hard for me to listen to. I am glad I stuck with it though. It really is a wonderful set-up, with powerful and unique characters. I look forward to the rest of the series. Other than me not liking a couple of the accents, Simon Vance was a really great narrator.

Raven’s Shadow series – by: Anthony Ryan – Narrated by: Steven Brand

A very well written and mature story, even though it is a coming of age story (at least in Blood Song.) The magic system is thoughtful, the females are strong, and the main character has depth. I look forward to the rest of the series. Steven Brand is a good narrator.

The Lies of Locke Lamora – by: Scott Lynch – Narrated by: Michael Page

Locke Lamora’s setting is surprisingly unique, and it’s main thief relies more on his wit than his blade, which is refreshing. Michael Page does a fine job narrating.

The Martian – by: Andy Weir – Narrated by: R. C. Bray

This book is perfect for anyone in science or engineering since it really geeks out on space survival. It’s an excellent man vs the elements adventure with a really likable main character. R. C. Bray narrates perfectly. He cusses quite well, too.

The Lives of Tao – by: Wesley Chu – Narrated by: Mikael Naramore

A great take on aliens visiting the planet. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a charming, kind and fun sci-fi read. Mikael Naramore does a great job narrating. Note: I didn’t like the second one in the series that much, but you might!



Favorites for Some – These are favorites for many hardcore sci-fi fantasy fans, but have elements that might not work for everyone. I try to note why without spoilers.

The First Law Series –  Joe Abercrombie – Narrated by Steven Pacey

I shivered just a bit as I came to this one on my list. This series stands apart from all of these books. It is very dark. One of the main characters is a lovable torturer. It changed the way I look at the world forever. It’s also one of my favorite series on this list. All other books will feel sugar coated after these. If this sounds good to you, you must listen to these books. Steven Pacey narrates them beautifully. Perhaps one of the best narrators ever. His women don’t sound like men trying to sound like women, they have their own voices and they are stellar. Stupid pink.

The Wheel of Time Series – Robert Jordan (and eventually Brandon Sanderson) – Narrated by Michael Kramer,  Kate Reading

Ok, I couldn’t help myself. I just finished the series. Michael Kramer was stunning again. And I am now a full on fan of Kate Reading. She was amazing. Keep in mind though that this series has some horrible parts. I mean really bad. It has some strange themes (sexist yet feminist at the same time?) It has a million characters. A million PoV characters. But at the end of them all I was crying my eyes out with joy and sadness. Sanderson really nailed the last books.

I do not recommend the Wheel of Time unless you are looking to spend 455 hours listening to a book series. There are some real gems in here, and I hope my kids listen to them when they are in their early teens. But light, it’s exhausting.

The Broken Empire Series – by Mark Lawrence – Narrated by James Clamp

There are few protagonists like Jorg. Sure, many claim to “break all the rules” but Jorg takes it to his own eloquent level. These books are extremely clever and very, very dark. Lawrence has a writing style that is elegant and honest. James Clamp doesn’t do too many voices, but his Jorg voice is perfect, so it works out.

The Warded Man (The Demon Cycle) – Narrated by Pete Bradbury

A good magic system and great narration puts the Warded Man on this list. As I listened to the book I could picture the wards (and the man) in vivid detail. Moments in it are dark, but in it’s own unique way (some hard for me to read). It’s worth reading the first book to see if it’s your style. Many people love this series.  As I said above, Pete Bradbury has a kind of old warrior voice. He doesn’t do a million voices, which is fine, because his base voice is very good.

Red Country – Joe Abercrombie – Narrated by Steven Pacey

Another amazing book by Abercrombie. The narration by Pacey is stellar as usual. This book is dark yet hilarious. Shy is one of the most bad-ass female characters I’ve read. The voice of Nicomo Cosca is so good I can’t believe it.

Perdido Street Station – China Mieville – Narrated by John Lee

A brilliant and dark story but the narration made me a bit sleepy. John Lee’s voice is lovely but it has a rhythm to it that doesn’t keep me engaged. That said, I’m still really glad I listened to it. The stuff in Perdido Street Station is crazy in a good way. It was quite dark too, and made me hate society.

Warbreaker – Brandon Sanderson – Narrated by James Yaegashi

This book had a great magic system and godly themes like most of Sanderson’s work. It wasn’t my favorite of his work, but the breath concept is worth a listen. James Yaegashi narrates in a very “dude” fashion, which worked for the characters, but some reviewers had a problem with it. I recommend you listen to a sound clip before buying.

The Windup Girl – by Paolo Bacigalupi – Narrated by Jonathan Davis

I loved the ideas in this book. I think of energy (calories) in different ways after reading it. That said it might not be for everyone. There’s one extremely dark scene. Davis is a wonderful narrator with a perfect voice for the main male character and some of the best Asian accents I’ve heard in an audio book.

The Golem and the Jinni – Helene Wecker – Narrated by George Guidall

This book is romantic and charming. It is also part historical fiction (early NYC). However, it won’t work for everyone, since it reads more like a fiction novel than fantasy (even though it has a healthy dose of fantasy). The narration is brilliant. I thought George Guidall was perfect for the Jewish and Arab voices. His female voices were really good too, which surprised me.

The Girl Who Circumvented Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making – Catherynne M. Valente – Narrated by Catherynne M. Valente

I didn’t mean to buy this book. I realized after I got it that it was a young adult novel. It felt like it as I listened to it too. But then it kept getting better, and at the end I found it profound. I highly recommend it for any young ones, and some of us adults. The narrator is the author, which is nice and all, but it was a bit like having a friend read to you. I am used to a bit more performance. Still, she was good and, well, she wrote the dang book.

The Powder Mage Trillogy – by Brian McClellan – Narrated By Christian Rodska

These books are worth reading just to learn about the Powder Mages. Guns and magic combined perfectly. The entire magic system is wonderful. Christian Rodska is an amazing narrator. His characters are great, with thought, emotion, and flawless delivery.

The Magicians – Lev Grossman  – Narrated by Mark Bramhall

This is a different kind of fantasy book. It’s sarcastic, a bit dark and totally refreshing. Based on the reviews I’ve read I think this is a love it or hate it book (I loved it) so you might want to read some reviews first. Also, it is not dark due to terrible murder scenes, but instead due to college style living (sex, drugs/drinking, ennui). That said, they are nerds, so it’s not jock-college style living. Mark Bramhall was a great narrator. Handsome, unobtrusive voice.

That’s it so far. I’ll add more as I read them and please add your own in the comments section (which already has some great ones!) And thank you for introducing me to new books in the comments too (which I add above as I read them.)

  • Jaslm

    There are a couple of Neil Gaiman audiobooks that I’ve really enjoyed. They fall into the fantasy category.

  • Jaslm

    My HTML tags obviously weren’t right in the previous comment. The book titles were “Anansi Boys” and “Neverwhere”.

  • vanessa

    Nice. I added them to my wish list and will read them when I finish or tire of the Wheel of Time. Thanks Jaslm :)

  • I bumped into this website after finishing Orson Scott Card’s Earth Unaware. I still got GOT to read/listen, but I find listening to it a bit dragging since I’ve already watched the HBO series and I don’t really want to go ahead. I’ll try some of your recommendations. Since I didn’t see Card on your list, I thought I should recommend it. Card works a lot with Stefan Rudnicki and I’ve really come to love his voice. Card writes for plays so He says his best medium is the audio book. Check out Ender’s Game (soon to be a movie) Mither Mages Series (book 2 to be released) and Pathfinder Series (book 2 recently released) which I must say has a great concept of magic. ^_^

    • vanessa

      Oh I had no idea Card liked the audio book, very cool. I love Ender’s Game, but I have not listened to the audio book. I imagine as my kids get older I’ll get it for them in audio form now. And wow that Earth Unaware has a large cast… Hmm, so does the first Pathfinder, which looks great. Added them to my wish list, thanks!

  • Joe

    Thanks for the nice list.

    After listening to The Void trilogy i cant find anything that would satisfy me more..theyre just that at loss for words 😀

    you should check them out 😉

  • Aimee

    The very best sci-fi series ever, in print or audio has to be the Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold and narrated by Grover Gardner. Her characters are fully-fleshed out and there’s enough intelligent humor, truly moving parts and adventure to satisfy the most critical reader/listener. And Grover Gardner absolutely nails it as a narrator. He’s quite spoiled me for other voices. Enjoy!

  • Chau

    Can’t believe Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy isn’t on here. While not technically a book (at first) it is a most excellent listen.

  • asher

    what about the Demon Cycle series?
    you must try it, it is one of the best fantasy books i have ever read
    currently i am waiting for the the third audiobook.
    and the second book The “Desert Spear” although it seems to slow at the begining was my favorite

    p.s added it to the top of your reading list :)

    • vanessa

      It’s already in my wish list! I can’t wait to get to the first one. I am on book freaking 13 of the Wheel of Time, so soon I can start getting to these ones! Thanks!

  • asher

    you should also try ,Patrick Rothfuss “The Kingkiller Chronicle” series:
    The Name of the Wind,
    the wise man fear,
    the third book will probably be available on may first.
    if you haven’t read them already add those too

    p.s ammm….and maybe this series is better than the Demon Cycle series

  • Gerry

    Thanks for your list vanessa. I’d also like to recommend something for you and others

    Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. An homage to 80’s pop culture and early gaming. The book is beautifully read by Will Wheaton (of Star Trek fame, who is coincidentally, referenced in the book).

    The story basically is about an online quest to inherit the wealth of an heir-less internet mogul. I guarantee this is one you won’t want to stop listening to until you’ve finished it

  • Di

    I really needed this list as I cant seem to drive more than 20 min anymore without an audiobook. I want a listen-wish-list of my own and this helps. It is hard to find, but I both read and listened to The Death Gate Cycle- Margret Weiss, Tracy Hickman. One of my early favorites.

    • vanessa

      For some reason I can’t find the Death Gate Cycle on Audible. I did see an audio version on Amazon so I added it to my amazon with list instead!

  • Tim

    Great list. I have listened to most of these and couldn’t agree more with your tastes. I would recommend listening to the Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks, and The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. The latter was probably the best book I have ever listened to, due to a combination of both story and narration (Michael Page).

  • asher

    the host by stephenie meyer, the first audiobook i have heard
    and since then couldnt stop :)

  • Andy

    Without a doubt Iain m banks audiobooks read by Peter kenny.

    Listen in order.

  • Skübz

    Hitchhikers Guide is the dopest listen ever! The books were based on the radio show, which was amazingly produced, and of course, very well written.

  • Rick

    Thanks for this list, while I have listened to most of the books listed, it did add a few new ones. I especially agree with your views on Patrick Rothfuss and Abercrombies First Law series.

    I will also put in my two cents for Ready Player One, excellent story and Wheaton did an outstanding job as narrator.

  • Brandon

    Have you read any if Steven Erikson’s Malazaan series? It’s a little darker but excellent, and long.

  • Alex

    I just finished the dark tower series….. I’m absolutely stunned. I listened to 7 books straight, in the car to and from work, at work, at home in the living room, in bed, at the beach, even at a music festival this past weekend as I neared the end. I can’t even imagine what I would want to listen to next.

  • Great list. Love Joe Abercrombie’s The First Law Series (agree, it’s a bit on the dark side) and Patrick Rothfuss Kingkiller Chronicles (waiting patiently for the third book). Apparently Fox are turning Kingkiller Chronicles into a TV series, hope they don’t mess it up.

  • Elad

    Absolutely wonderful list.
    It has already fulfilled many hours of pleasure!
    I can never thank you enough for introducing Abercrombie to me :)
    I still have a long way to go but the at least the WOT is all behind me… 😉

    • vanessa

      Glad to hear it Elad! I was grateful to be told of Abercrombie also. My friend that recommended his books also recommended the Shadows of the Apt series, but they haven’t made an audio version yet… I hope they do soon. Shadows of the Apt

  • Stretch

    I just purchased NOS4A2, Storm Front and The Thicket. Last week I bought The Stormcaller from Tom Lloyd too.

  • Carlos

    Scott Lynch – The Lies of Lock Lamora & Red Seas under Red Skies. (Third book not released yet)
    Dragonlance Chronicles (long and old but amazing story line)
    Eragon is good too

  • asher

    Elantris by Brandon sanderson also a bestseller
    The First Law Series by abercrombie was great also magician by lev grosman
    thanks for the recommendation vanessa
    but i need more…. :(
    just finished ‘magician’ and until Gentleman Bastard book 3 is out i got nothing

  • Changelin

    I just stumbled across the list, thanks for putting it all together :) I started listening to audiobooks a few weeks ago, only in english, even though I’m french, since I’ve been longing for stories all over again lately, and because I want to try and get better at spoken english…

    I don’t know many audiobooks, and I’m not sure if you’re familiar with her already, but SJ Tucker as a narrator to a few of Catherynne M. Valente’s stories is the young lady who got me into listening to audiobooks in the first place. You can hear her grin through the story, so I’d recommend her if you feel like listening to a bit more of Catherynne M. Valente… :)

  • Alice

    I would like to suggest The Abhorsen series by Gareth Nix (my fav is Sabriel; I guess it’s because it’s one of the first I listened to) read by Tim Curry. He has a nice deep voice so it was awesome.
    Thank you for the superb list! Now I have more books to listen to on the metro :)

  • Dan

    Hi Vanessa.

    Really liked what you wrote about the Wheel of Time series. I gave up after about two books in and although it was good I’m glad I did as there is some truly wonderful stuff out there.

    You simply must, if you have not already done so, listen to Dune read by Scott Brick. It’s amazing. Truly.

    I’ll give my top five audiobooks so far….(it ever changes)

    1 – Dune – when I finish it I remember thinking nothing could match it and that is still the case.
    2 – The Quantum Thief (again read by Scott Brick) This is really far into the future of sci-fi where bones are replaced with nuclear power plants to run hi tech time controlling devices. Bonkers but such style.
    3 – Rendezvous with Rama. Soon to be a film by samuel l jackson I hope. But its Clarke at his best.
    4 – Foundation – this would make such a good HBO TV series
    5 – F 451 Ray Bradbury


    • vanessa

      Very nice, I have looked at Dune a couple times, I never actually read it. I just added it to my queue. The rest of those I haven’t read, so thanks Dan!

  • David M

    I recommend you keep giving Dresden a shot. The stories start to evolve a lot on the third book and they just keep getting better. Don’t do yourself a disservice by not continuing that series.

  • Thatcher

    Vanessa, I just want to say thank you for creating this list. You have helped guide me to many pleasurable listening hours. Ready Player One was such a splendid surprise!

    I feel like I must try to give something back to you (though my very favorites are already on your list). “The Worm Ouroboros” by E. R. Eddision was published in 1922 is an amazing fantasy audio book though not anything like the modern fantasy books you are used to listening to. Here is what one person said about it on amazon:

    “This is one of those classics which will never generate popular appeal because it is simply too difficult to read, and it has almost nothing in common with the majority of books in the fantasy genre it helped to spawn beyond the broadest of themes (good heroes battling evil villains in a fantastic world). It is also one of the most original books to be written in English in the 20th century, and has inspired and been admired by a pantheon of popular writers: this edition boasts superlative testaments from Tolkien, C.S.Lewis, H.Rider Haggard, Piers Anthony, and Ursula K. Le Guin, among others. For readers with a serious interest in the origins and possibilities of the modern fantasy genre, this book is simply not to be missed.”

    Give it a shot! Anyway, thank you for Vanessa for all your recommendations. Happy listening!

  • Linus

    Nice list, will probaly read some of the Brandon Sanderson books now. I like what he did to the wheel of time books, and Michael Kramer is quite brilliant.

    At the moment I’m listening to the books by RA Salvatore, The forgotten realms. So far I’ve only read the books from “The legend of Drizzt” series. The books are very good, and the narrator is ok, at first i didn’t really like him (but hey, after listening to Michael Kramer…) but now i find him good.

  • Rob

    Kate Daniels series written by Ilona Andrews narrated by Renae Rodman are quite good also if you find yourself looking for something urban fantasy, also the Night side series by Simon R. Green are fun and fast.

  • Stuart

    Great list- thank you!

    Add my current fav- ” Mr Norrell and Jonathon Strange”

  • Aaron

    I also wanted to recommend Dresden to you. The third book is absolutely where it picks up and it picks up BIG. Other than that thank you for this list. I’ve recently burned through the Gentleman Bastard series, WOT, both Stormlight books along with everything else Sanderson wrote and the Dresden Files and didn’t know what I was going to listen to next. So again many thanks and I’ve got this page bookmarked. :-)

  • Gaz

    You should check out The Deed of Paksenarrion. It’s absolutely brilliant, and I’m pretty sure you’d come to the same conclusion.

    Great list, by the way. I’m disappointed that I’ve already read most of them, though. Looking into the Dagger and Coin series right now, seems like what I’ve been looking for.

    • vanessa

      Added the Deed of Paksenarrion to my wish list! It looks great!

      I miss the Dagger and Coin series… They aren’t perfect, but there is something very special about them.

  • Richard

    Not sure if it’s because I’m British, or because I heard him first, but I much prefer Rupert Degas reading The Kingkiller Chronicles. Looking forward to trying some of the others on here when I finish Book 2.

  • Brad

    I just wanted to say thanks for putting this list together, it has become my go to when I looking for a new listen.

    I just finished the First Law series and I can’t thank you enough for recommending it. It’s been a while since I cared so much for characters even though most of them are complete bastards. The narration was so great as well it really upped the bar going forward.

  • Tammy

    Have you listened to the Sandman slim series? It is a bit dark but but the narrarator nails it and the writing is fast moving and full of action and intrigue. I would also suggest the Discovery of witches trilogy. The writing is fantastic and the story keeps you wanting more.

  • Tammy

    Oh yes I almost forgot. I loved the book called The physick book of deliverance Dane. It is beautifully written and has really great historic content on the Salem witches. The narrarator nails it and it left me wanting more from the writer Katherine Howe.

  • Brooke

    Great list! I will definitely be adding some of these to my list. :) I highly recommend The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. So good! Kind of like Oceans 11 meets Robin Hood meets clever street urchin in a fantasy world akin to old time Venice.

  • Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is technically a book (someone posted earlier it wasn’t). It is also the first book in a hilarious British comedic science fiction series. They did make this into a radio show and then a movie, but it was a book before all of this. :)

  • Mr. Doe

    Thanks for this list :) it realy helped me to narrow down my choices for what to listen to.
    That said i would like to recommend a fantasy novel: Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw.
    if you liked Redshirts, Ready Player One and discworld you will like this aswell.
    And the writer himself does the audio version which gives the characters that much more personality :)

  • Brilliant list thanks you so much for taking the time to create it, I like some of your other replies find it hard to drive anywhere without a good audiobook. I would recommend 2 for you although I suppose they would be typically classed as horror and teen fiction not fantasy but they are among the best audio books I have listened to, they are: World War Z and All the Harry Potter Series read by Stephen Fry

    Thanks again


    • vanessa

      Ah yes, I have the Harry Potter audio books and look forward to listening to them with my kids! And World War Z qualifies as Sci-Fi I think! Thanks Rob!

  • Brad

    I wanted to recommend Hyperion by Dan Simmons. It was really good, with a different narrator for each of the main characters stories.

  • Bill Bucket

    I highly recommend the Grimnoir Chronicles, they are really a fantastic series. Bronson Pinchot does an _amazing_ job of narration, I’m very impressed with the voices that man can do. Also be sure to check with you local library for audiobooks. My library here in Oregon offers audiobooks that I can checkout and download with an app on my phone called Overdrive. It’s a great place to check before shelling out $30 for a book!

    • vanessa

      Ah, I haven’t heard of the Grimnoir Chronicles, added to my list. I have heard of the library audiobook thing, where you can search a group of libraries for the book you want. I just haven’t done it yet, but I need to!
