8 Audiobook Voices That Will Blow Your Ear-Drums

1. Dan Stevens

In addition to his notable performances on Downton Abbey and Beauty and the Beast, Dan Stevens has also enjoyed an accomplished career as an audiobook narrator, receiving 2 Audie Award nominations for his work in Frankensteinand The Odyssey. It’s not hard to hear why—Stevens’s voice is nothing less than pure, sexy English charm. His debonair intonation makes even the most horrid stories enthralling.

2. Davina Porter

Porter, a veteran audiobook narrator, has gained many fans for her remarkable reading of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. Porter devotes herself fully to the steamy Scottish world she is describing, bringing characters to life with such pinpoint accuracy that you scarcely need to watch the TV show.

3. Marin Ireland

At first, Marin Ireland does not seem the obvious choice to narrate Beartown, Fredrik Backman’s exploration of small-town machismo gone awry. Yet the Tony-nominated Ireland uses this very unconventionality to her advantage, transforming from sweet teenage girl to obnoxious school bully to grizzled old man with astonishing ease. Just like a cozy small town, Ireland lures you in with her earthy tones—then tears your heart out.

  1. Davina Porter is hands down the best female narrator I’ve heard. She also read The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. Jim Dale and George Guidel are my favorite male narrators.
