Audiofile's 2010 list of the best audiobooks for Families and Kids Mr. Popper's Penguins by Florence & Richard Atwater
VALLEY OF BONES by Michael Gruber
”Interpreted by narrator Nick Sullivan, Gruber's novel is pitch-perfect throughout. Sullivan creates truly authentic voices for Paz (a Cuban-American), Emmylou (a rural Southerner), and all the other characters, incorporating emotions with just the right shading. Earphones Award AudioFile 2005
GUN, WITH OCCASIONAL MUSIC by Jonathan Lethem
”Sullivan's deadpan is dead-on, and if you listen to audiobooks in public, be aware that you may be subject to spontaneous fits of laughter.” AudioFile 2008
THE BURGLAR ON THE PROWL by Lawrence Block
”All of the characters are New Yorkers of one stripe or another, and Nick Sullivan does an excellent job of placing them in one or another of the five boroughs. For a male narrator, he is also unusually good with female voices. His rhythm and pace reflect the fast action without exaggerating it.” AudioFile 2004
ILLUSIONS by Bill Pronzini
“Narrator Nick Sullivan is fantastic; each character is a unique individual. His female voices are particularly effective and enjoyable each time any of the women speak. African-American and ethnic characters are perfectly captured, as well. Each Pronzini book is an event, and Nick Sullivan as the reader adds fanfare and glitter to the interpretation.” AudioFile 1999.
SICK PUPPY by Carl Hiaasen
“Nick Sullivan's narration complements this hilarious plot, creating unique voices for each character that hit the mark exactly. Understanding that “timing is everything” in comedy, the narrator delivers the lines with perfect pacing.” Audiofile, 2001.
BOOBYTRAP by Bill Pronzini
“Slipping effortlessly from one persona to another, Sullivan is particularly adept at suggesting both youth (a 14-year-old boy) and age (a woman in her 70's).” AudioFile. 1999
