Multcolib My Librarian Rachael: Overdrive listens with mellifluous accents
Annotation:British author Winchester reads his own fantastic nonfiction, a wide-ranging tour that touches on the geology, colonialism, and the loudest sound ever heard.
Annotation:The Scottish reader Davina Porter is one of my all-time favorites. Here she reads the first in Chesney's Edwardian mystery series, and her rendering of the speech of the upper classes adds a great deal of humor to an already delightful skewering.
Annotation:British actress Matilda Raison reads the tale of a world where ghosts are real, threatening, and can only be battled by children.
Annotation:Tim Curry narrates this imaginative and satisfying young adult fantasy. Curry is an excellent reader, but there is a danger that his voice will lead to having songs from the Rocky Horror Picture Show stuck in your head.
Annotation:English actress Janet McTeer reads Cushman's story of a well-educated, snobby girl who must live among the lower classes and learn to be a bonesetter.
Annotation:English actor Simon Prebble reads the heartbreaking, fascinating story of the journey of Shackleton and his men.

I adore audio books, and strongly prefer readers with British, Scottish, or Irish accents. Here are some great books read by some of my favorite narrators that can be downloaded through Overdrive.
