Celebrating AudioFile’s 2021 Golden Voice Narrators: Soneela Nankani
Honoring Excellence in Audiobook Narration
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss new Golden Voice narrator Soneela Nankani and her animated and lively storytelling style. Her clear connections with characters draw listeners into any story, helping listeners share all the feelings in roller-coaster romances like Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron. Her skills with accents mean audiobooks come alive with her narrations, and she has a special gift with the worldbuilding necessary for fantasy, especially for younger listeners. Robin shares her thoughts on Soneela’s narration of Roshani Chokshi’s middle-grade fantasy Aru Shah and the City of Gold, along with a clip. Look for a longform interview with Soneela Nankani from Jo Reed on our podcast on June 18 and learn more about all of AudioFile’s Golden Voice narrators on their website.
Support for our podcast comes from Oasis Audio, publisher of Heavenly Mortal a suspenseful story of the battle between light and darkness by Jack Cavanaugh.
