  1. Courtney

    Why “Pride & Prejudice” read by Colin Firth of course. How has that never happened?

    Thanks for the lovely challenge and have a great second half of the readathon!

    Stiletto Storytime

  2. British people (like Richard Armitage, David Tennant, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, etc.) narrating British books… well, anything really!

  3. Lonesome Dove is a great book, I’d be very happy listening to Karl Urban read it too.

    I decided on Jeremy Irons reading The Man in the Iron Mask. Although my inspiration for this choice (1998 movie) is not as visually hot as yours.

  4. This was surprisingly easy – I guess my subconscious has been thinking about it for a while.

    My audiobook dream date would be Kiss of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning, read by Clive Owens. Swoon.

  5. YvonneJ

    Neil Gaiman reading anything written by Neil Gaiman. I wish that he had narrated the audiobook of Terry Pratchett’s Dodger.

  6. There are so many fantastic answers to this…
    I would absolutely love to hear Robert Webb read Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. I love his voice.

  7. Kristilyn (Reading in Winter)

    I’d have to say Darkly Dreaming Dexter by the man himself, Michael C. Hall.

    Of course, I also think ANY book would be awesomely narrated by Hugh Laurie or David Tennant. πŸ™‚

  8. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Alan Rickman. Or Neil Gaiman. πŸ˜€ Though I would very much enjoy one of the vlogbrothers reading, any book! I still want that audiobook from John Green narrated by himself! πŸ˜€

  9. Halfway to the Grave with James Marsters doing his Spike voice for Bones. The chick that does the narration does a horrible voice for Bones. So I would love it if they re-recorded his parts with “Spike” doing the voice.

  10. HUH!

    So, a few years ago, a coffee brand made this little videos or famous people reading from classic novels. And Greg Wise read one chapter from Jane Austen’s Persuasion and it was the perfect mix between earnest and ironic, which would lend itself famously for a Georgette Heyer novel. So, that’s my answer: Greg Wise reading Georgette Heyer’s Arabella :DDD

  11. Actually, most authors are bad at performing their own work, but reading a biography of him today makes me very aware that I’d rather like to have heard C.S. Lewis narrate any of his Narnia books.

  12. kai charles (Fiction State of Mind)

    Congrats on your challenge πŸ™‚ I want the Neverwhere book by Gaiman narrayed by James Mcavoy

  13. Cate

    I think Tina Fey is hilarious, so I would like to see her narrate one of my favorite more light-hearted books, like the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella.

  14. Michele

    I have a new favorite narrator, Georgina Sutton, but sadly she only has three books to her credit. So my dream would be to have her narrate any or all Tana French novels! *Sigh* I can always dream, right?

  15. Memory

    I’d love Catherine Zeta-Jones to read absolutely anything–but if I have to pick just one book, I’d go with THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morganstern. There’s already an audio edition narrated by the superb Jim Dale, but I’d love to hear Zeta-Jones’s take on the material.

  16. Missie

    Karl Urban! Ha! Why am I not surprised. Now I feel like watching one of his movies… Borne Identity because he looks so hot in it as a killer! LOL

  17. Steph

    Why did ya have to make me go ahead and think about this?
    It’s not time for fantasies! And not time for ones that people will laugh at me for either haha
    2 picks
    1. Tom Hardy reading Into the Wild or really anything.
    2. Bob Odenkirk reading any kind of smut on the shelf.

    And now I’m going to see what everyone else said!

  18. I love the Spencer series by Robert B. Parker and have listened to one that was read by Bert Reynolds. I would love to hear him do more!

  19. The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, read by Michael Fassbender. This is one of the funniest books I’ve ever read, and I’d love to hear Fassbender read it in his suave accent.

  20. Kanoko

    Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants by The Oatmeal, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. Would be phenomenal. πŸ˜€

  21. Ooh, this is a good one! Rebecca narrated by Gwyneth Paltrow would be fun but maybe not a “dream date”. Hmm … how about The Meaning of Night (by Michael Cox), read by Benedict Cumberbatch. Yes, that would be nice. πŸ˜‰

  22. I left mine in the Rafflecopter, too, but I think that basically any Mitch Albom book that was narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio! Think it’s a strange choice? Then I know you haven’t seen Hubble 3D because Leo was an outstanding narrator on that!
