The Voice Behind the Curtain

Every Wednesday, YA Highway asks their readership a simple question to answer on your blog. Once you answer, you link your blog in the comments for other readers to hop on board. This is Road Trip Wednesday. 

Today'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?

I don't know much about audio books. Like, how one goes about picking the perfect voice. To be honest, I never give audio books much thought*, so it shouldn't shock you that I have no idea about any of my WIPs.

What I do know is that I like the sound of a badass. Like that scene in the Dukes of Hazzard movie** where Bo Duke is listening to AL UNSER JUNIOR: NO QUESTIONS, ONLY UNSERS as told by Laurence Fishburne. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the clip on YouTube, so to get Fishburne's voice, let's watch Sesame Street.

I'm not sure what I'd want him to read, but I'm sure it would be awesome.

One book I'm sure about was the topic of yesterday's post. John Cleese would be the perfect fit to the entire Sir Cumference series. This has everything to do with Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Do you read audio books? Who would you like to hear on an audio book?

* Sorry, audio books.
** I know, I know. It's sacrilege to like the movie after growing up on the show. However, the movie is great for what it is.
