Off the Shelf: Audio books read by celebrities

Filed under: Off the Shelf — klsseong @ 8:00 am

I am always on the search for the next great audio book.  In my quest, I have found that the popularity of audio books have attracted actors to get on board to read aloud for out listening pleasures.  My most recent discovery was Matilda (Roald  Dahl) read by Kate Winslet.  The Reader (ha!) actress is a phenomenal elocutionist.  You can most certainly count on an Oscar-winner to bring a book to life.   Johnny Depp is the reader of Keith Richard’s autobiography, Life.  The resemblance of Captain Sparrow and the aging Rolling Stones guitarist makes the voice more compelling.  Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is read by Claire Danes, which is also an interesting match.
