This week’s Road Trip asks, who should narrate your audio book?
My current novel is a reimagining of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew”, so my immediate thought was, Kenneth Branagh. Because, you know, Ken and I are BFFs who hang out every Saturday night talking Shakespeare, drinking cider and ale in a British pub. Wait, that’s only in my mind? Really? Oh, man!
But seriously, wouldn’t that be awesomely cool?
My second thought though, was that the book really should be read by a woman, since the story is told from Kate’s point of view. Dame Judi Dench is the queen of Shakespeare, but I don’t think she’d be believable as a nineteen year old.
Hmmmm. British actress, young enough, deft with language, great with relationship chemistry…
No question. Emily Blunt.
