Anyway, a friend on facebook asked me this question:
I think this is a question that any author daydreams about (unless, of course, they already have an audio book!). I admit I do think about it often. The narrator would have to be somebody quintessentially English, but who is also no stranger to silliness. Somebody who could build up the drama of the scary and dangerous bits, but also have fun with the lighter parts. They would also need to do a whole load of different character voices, not all of them human.
With this in mind then, how about these four for contenders?
