Narrator Spotlight: Hillary Huber

By Danielle

I would index (1)listen to Hilary Huber narrate a phone book if I could. Hands down, she is my favorite narrator to listen to, partially because her range is so vast. She has narrated over 250 audio books including Southern mysteries to YA novels to memoirs and nonfiction to historical fiction. She is a multiple Audie Award finalist, an AudioFile Earphones Award winner, and an AudioFile Best Voice for her work on This Book Is Overdue! How Librarians and Cybrarians can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson. You may even recognize her as the narrator of J.A. Jance’s Joanna Brady books.

If you’reindex new to Huber’s voice-over work, I suggest starting with This Book is Overdue! How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson. If you love books and librarians, you’ll hear how she turns a good book into a great book with her narration. I also recommend This Beautiful index (2)Life by Helen Schulman as Huber’s gravely voice gives even more tension to a story about a family on the brink of collapse. My favorite book that she’s narrated Him, Her Him Again, The End of Him by Patricia Marx. It’s a funny book about a bad love affair and Huber’s deadpan style only makes Marx’s (a former Saturday Night Live writer) work even funnier.  My personal favorite of all of Huber’s narrated titles is Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews, even though her narration is brief.
