2013 Armchair Audies – Summary – Multi-Voiced Performance

30 May

Armchair Audies

I’m squeezing in this post under the wire – since the announcement of the winners for the 2013 Audies awards starts at 8pm EST (so in about 30 minutes from now). But considering I didn’t finish the book I was listening to until 2 hours ago, I’m rather impressed 😉

Originally when I signed up to do the Armchair Audies, I participated in the Romance category, but since I finished that one in mid-April, and still had about 6 weeks to go until the announcement of the winners, I decided to dive head-first into another category – Multi-Voiced Performance. Unfortunately, time ran out and I only managed to get 5 of the 6 books nominated in this category listened to (if I hadn’t caved and listed to that non-nominated romance, I would have made it…oh well).

The nominations for this category are:
Dracula by Bram Stoker

My Awesome-Awful Popularity Plan by Seth Rudetsky

October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard by Lesléa Newman

The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner

Suddenly, a Knock on the Door: Stories by Etgar Keret

That Is All written by John Hodgman (Un-listened)

Thoughts:
I’m very conflicted over which one of these books I think will win. It wasn’t like the romance category where I had a solid favorite. For me, there are three potentials – Dracula, My Awesome/Awful Popularity Plan and The Privilege of the Sword. However, of these, My Awesome/Awful Popularity Plan is the only one that I actually have a review posted for right now…and I just finished up Privilege today. And since I didn’t complete the category, I can’t say where, That Is All would have fallen in the scheme of things…so there you have it…I have a couple of potentials but no sure winner…
