Narrators don’t just read the story—they bring it to life, adding nuance to every word and personality to every character. They develop a special relationship with the listener, making every audiobook they perform a transporting experience. The 20 narrators (and one distinctive voice) featured here – as well as future inductees and winners of awards we’ll introduce next year – were selected based on several criteria: a wide, varied, and vibrant body of work; exceptional listener reviews; and a commitment to the craft and dedication to spreading awareness of audio performance.
