The Man with the Golden Voice

Can we please, please take a moment to talk about the wondrous, amazing voice of  Simon Vance? A rockstar of the audiobook world, this British transplant has narrated everything from Oliver Twist to Ian Fleming's James Bond series to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. His voice has charmed authors and listeners alike – not hard to do when you’ve narrated over 700 titles.

To get you started, HCPL owns a staggering 245 Simon Vance narrated titles in which to chose from (I have included a small sample of possible selections below). Because trust me, once you start listening, you won’t be able to get enough.


The King's Speech by Mark Logue and Peter Conradi
Portrait of a Spy by Daniel Silva
Rod: The Autobiography by Rod Stewart
Bringing Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
