Top audiobook narrator of 2010: Simon Prebble
Posted by: Mary Burkey

Booklist’s “Voice of Choice” recognition honors the stellar performer of over 500 titles in the June “Audiobook Showcase” issue. Joyce Saricks’ feature article highlights the myriad facets of Prebble’s 20-year career narrating an astounding spectrum of top titles. I’m a HUGE fan of Preble’s narration of Anthony Horowitz’s teen/tween novels, especially the creepy Raven’s Gate. I vividly remember the day that Prebble had me so entranced on my morning commute that I was white-knuckles on the steering wheel shouting “Nooo…” while I drove ten miles past my turn-off to work before dazedly registering that I was actually driving a car. Congratulations, Simon, and thank you for so many hours of audiobook enjoyment! What a perfect addition to the dream team of  Barbara Rosenblat & Simon Vance, Booklist’s 2009 & 2008 “Voice of Choice” honorees :-)

    I am happy you agree he was an excellent choice. I was also happy to see that after so many Audie nominations, he won an Audie this year. Of course I was in the audience and thrilled when they called his name.
