The List: Audio Books with Notable Narrators

The first list in our new WViT Lists section is a compilation of notable audio book narrators (for the highlights, see our earlier post). While most of these books are available through, there are a few exceptions, such as Brad Pitt's reading of All the Pretty Horses, Jennifer Aniston's narration of Loukoumi’s Good Deeds and Christopher Walken's telling of Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven; in those cases, the links will take you to a page.

Each link link will take you to a specific narrator page where you can also hear clips. One note: In most cases we've left narrators reading their own works off this list. Additional names will be added once we receive.
