Easily in my top 4, possibly in my top 2 favorite audio books, and I've listened to many.
I can't answer this, on account of spoilers, but I definitely have one in mind...
Love it. Love it. Love it.
("Literature" in that it's more than every-day ho-hum page-turning commercial fiction.)
Duncan Idaho, for his casual, steely attitude in a story full of hyper-intellectuals.
Referring to the main narrator: he puts inflection into his performance in just the right way, I think. If someone is written as sounding joyous, for example, he'll add a perfect amount of joy to his reading. Some narrators overdo it, I feel, and some won't at all, which can be even more distracting. I appreciate his voice on a simple aesthetic level, too.
Wouldn't even need one. It's Dune.
Simply the best. If you've never read it or seen the film or series the Sci-Fi channel made, DON'T WATCH THOSE. Sorry for the caps, but they're so terrible and it'll only spoil plot points for you.
I would have kept Orson from writing it until later in his career.
I really like Ender's Game (also by Orson Scott Card), but Treason is a few good ideas wrapped in sensational plot progressions that betray how long ago he wrote it. I'd recommend it if you're crazy for sci-fi/fantasy and are more or less out of other options...
Perhaps the best.
It's... heart-wrenching, but so well written.
Can't say how much I love it.
