entertainment weekly has a post up about good and bad choices for audio book narrators. "For example: “Not Scary Enough: Joe Mantegna reads Stephen King’s Thinner”, “Too Scary: Willem Dafoe reads Stephen King’s The Langoliers.”
So, just a quick list of my favorite Stephen King audio books:
1. Stephen King reading Needful Things.
2. Frances Sternhagen reading Dolores Claiborne
3. Raul Esparza reading Under The Dome
4. Sissy Spacek reading Carrie.
5. Frank Muller reading Shawshank Redemption
Worst ever -- though I've already lodged this complaint -- Grover Gardner reading The Stand.
I have noticed a few people complaining that it is hard to keep up with all the characters in Under The Dome. That's actually a place where the audio edition is very helpful. Raul Espraza does such a good job giving each character their own voice that you easily keep up with who's who.
