Road Trip Wednesday #78: Who Should Narrate the Audio Book?

This Week's Topic:
If you got to choose a celebrity narrator for the audio book of your WIP or your favorite novel, who would it be and why?


Confession:
I have a thing for gravelly male voices. Listening to Tim Curry read Lemony Snicket? Pure awesome. (It doesn't help that I totally have a thing for Tim Curry. I feel his voice should be on every audio book. Even the nonEnglish ones.)

However, if anyone were to read my current WIP, I'd want that person to be Tom Waits. 1. Because he has one of the most awesome voices ever. 2. Because he could make even my shoddiest prose sound absolutely brilliant. Love that man.

(Yes, my current novel is written from the perspective of a teenage girl. I suspect Tom Waits will have no problem with this.)


Reader's log:
36. When the Stars Go Blue - Caridad Ferrer
37. Witch Child - Celia Rees
38. Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick

  7. I've never heard of Tom Waits before, but he sure does have a great voice. It would be really interesting to listen to him read a teen girl's story!

  8. If you haven't experienced Tom Waits yet, definitely download a copy of Rain Dogs and also check out his performance as the devil in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Good stuff.
