10. Stephen Fry – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Stephen Fry

It should come as no surprise that Stephen Fry is a regular on the audiobook circuit. With a voice like that, why wouldn’t he be? His quirky and incredibly English sense of humor makes him the perfect narrator for Douglas Adams’ increasingly inaccurately-named Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy—and the fact that he was the voice of the Book in the 2005 film adaptation of the novel just seals the deal. Don’t panic!

11. Paul Newman – The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

Paul Newman

A classic reads a classic. It doesn’t get much better than that. P.S.: Raise your hand if you miss Paul Newman.

12. Patrick Stewart – The Chronicles of Narnia: The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis

Patrick Stewart

The list of audiobook narrators for the Chronicles of Narnia reads like a who’s who of the British acting world: Derek Jacobi, Lynn Redgrave, Michael York, Jeremy Northam, Kenneth Branagh… and of course Patrick Stewart. I’m always a train wreck at the end of The Last Battle (it’s just so sad!), so it helps to have Captain Picard (or Professor X, depending on your nerddom of choice) on hand to comfort any weeping readers.

  1. Yeah, I can understand that. To be honest, I didn't love the last seasons. But overall it's a great show!
    Round about now us bookish types tend to find ourselves out scouring the retail world
    not for flowers, not for chocolates
    but for the Valentine’s Day gift we know our sweeties will really like best: a book.
    After all, how better to convey our affection than with something romantic between two covers?

    Thank you for the great information!
