Available on Audible.com, Sherlock Holmes: The Rediscovered Railway Mysteries and Other Stories will let you relive the BBC produced crime fiction Sherlock miniseries ALL. OVER. AGAIN.
2. Tom Hiddleston
Sick and tired of seeing pictures of your internet boyfriend cuddled up alongside new squeeze Taylor Swift? Look no further than this audiobook of the Thor actor narrating Ian Fleming’s Octopussy and the Living Daylights. Close your eyes, tuck into bed and dream away to the fourteenth and final James Bond book… Sweet dreams.
3. Ed Westwick
For all of you young adult, fantasy fiction fans, this one's for you! We happily present the seductive English voice of Ed Westwick narrating Cassandra Clare’s City of Fallen Angels. Although we love the heartthrob as American bad-boy Chuck Bass in teen drama Gossip Girl, we can’t help but love the enticing allure of a British accent.
4. Colin Firth
“Did I just agree to dance with Mr. Darcy?”
We can’t get the image of a young Colin Firth in Pride and Prejudice out of our heads! Bringing classic literature to life in the form of narration this time, the English superstar was nominated for Best Solo Narration at the Audie Awards in 2013 for his evocative, authentic performance in Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair.
5. David Oyelowo
David Oyelowo will play the first black James Bond... in the audiobook of Anthony Horowitz' Trigger Mortis. We hope the reading puts him in good stead with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, come time to re-cast the iconic secret agent.
