2015 Multi-Voiced Performance Nominees and Reviews

The following audiobooks were nominated in the Multi-Voiced Performance Category. Reviews will be posted as they come in.

This category will be judged by Jennifer at Literate Housewife. Would you like to join her? Send an email to armchairaudies@gmail.com.

Here are the nominees:

  • The Anatomy Lesson by Nina Siegal; Narrated by Adam Alexi-Malle, Peter Altschuler, Emma Jayne Appleyard, Hannah Curtis, Gildart Jackson, Bruce Mann, Steve West from Penguin Random House Audio
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman; Narrated by Derek Jacobi, Neil Gaiman, Robert Madge, Clare Corbett, Miriam Margolyes, Andrew Scott, and Julian Rhind-Tutt from HarperAudio

“While Gaiman is a delightful narrator, this full cast performance was divine. Derek Jacobi narrates the prose and I am in love with his voice. While my assumption is that each narrator performed separately, Jacobi’s work with the prose was seamless around and in between the performances of the other narrators. There wasn’t one character who didn’t belong in the audiobook. As a fan of Sherlock, having Andrew Scott narrate the Man Jack and Jay Frost was icing on the cake.” ~ Literate Housewife

  • Land of Love and Drowning by Tiphanie Yanique; Narrated by Cherise Boothe, Korey Jackson, Rachel Leslie, Myra Lucretia Taylor from Recorded Books
  • A Long Time Gone by Karen White; Narrated by Susan Bennett, Jennifer Ikeda, and Pilar Witherspoon from Recorded Books

“I can now say that I’ve read a Karen White novel. I don’t know if A Long Time Gone was the best representation of her work, but I don’t intend to pick up another. While I don’t see this as the winner of the Multi-Voiced Performance category, I would not have finished this book if I hadn’t picked up the audiobook version.” ~ Literate Housewife

  • The Sixteenth of June by Maya Lang; Narrated by Julia Whelan, Will Damron, and MacLeod Andrews from Brilliance Publishing

“While the narrators worked well for me, the only reason why I didn’t DNF this book was because it was really short. I had looked forward to this book set on the Bloomsday centennial, so it was a pretty big disappointment.” ~ Literate Housewife

Literate Housewife’s full review
