The narration can seriously make or break an audiobook for me. I have listened to some really great ones but I honestly love audiobooks read by full casts. It’s like watching a play or a movie come alive in your brain as you listen. Here are a few of my recent favorite full cast narrations…
Six of Crows, Leigh Bardugo
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction – if they don’t kill each other first.
Gemina, Amie Kaufman
Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter, Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one.
Sleeping Giants, Sylvain Neuvel
A girl named Rose falls through the earth. She wakes up at the bottom of a square hole, its walls glowing with intricate carvings. But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger: a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand. Seventeen years later, the mystery of the bizarre artifact remains unsolved. Rose Franklin is now a highly trained physicist leading a top-secret team to crack the hand’s code.

I actually haven’t read any of these books, although I’ve been meaning to read the first two- I’ll definitely have to try to get them as audiobooks! I’ve never heard of Sleeping Giants, but it sounds AMAZING, I have to check it out! Fabulous post!
I love full-cast audiobooks. They are the best.

The voice diversity keeps me from falling asleep 🙂
Six of Crows is such a big book. Did the audiobook take forever to listen to? I really enjoyed the full cast recording of In the Heat of the Night. It was excellent.
It really flew by for me because the narration kept it feeling really alive. The size of the book is one of the reasons I decided to tackle it via audiobook. I was not disappointed. So good!! I’ll have to check out In the Heat of the Night too. Thanks!
