CJ Kritt narrates all the recent abridged versions.
Lorelei King narrates all the recent unabridged versions.
They are both extremely talented narrators, but once you enjoy listening to one of them, for some listeners it may take awhile to get used to the other if you switch. It basically comes down to personal taste in voice pitch, timbre and accent, plus whether you prefer to listen to abridged or nonabridged mysteries. The only Lorelei King narration on audible.com is for author Janet Evanovich, so I always choose Lorelei, and enjoy C.J. Kritt in mysteries she narrates for other authors.
I've listened to dozens of different narrators: Lorelei is my favourite, CJ is a close second. Joe Montegna and George Wilson are currently tied for third.
Though there are plenty of skilled male narrators, when there is a lot of dialogue to read for a diverse cast of both female and male characters, great female narrators tend to manage the male voices less ... uh ... weirdly or annoyingly than even the best male narrators attempting female voices. And Lorelei does a remarkably good voice for Ranger. I sure hope both Lorelei and CJ keep narrating fiction for years to come.
