Vote: Who's the better "Character" audio reader?

Postby raisindot » Thu Jul 31, 2014 3:10 pm

Okay, we've had the general "Who's the better audiobook reader" debate, but in some cases one reader will do a better job on certain characters than others. So, here's an informal poll: Who do you think does a better job "read-acting" each character? The criteria for character inclusion here should be those characters who have been voiced by at least two different readers. In the early books, it's mostly Robison and Planer with Celia whatsohename here and there. In the middle books, Robinson, Planer and Briggs can be compared. Starting with The Fifth Elephant (I believe), Briggs became the only reader (unless Robinson still did shorter versions), so new characters (moist, Lobsang, etc.) can't be compared. Anyone, below is a starter list with the my favorites, plus others listed where I haven't heard the books. Feel free to add your own.
