Narrators Amanda Ronconi and Zachary Webber are utterly convincing as two seatmates who hit it off on a crowded and eventful bus ride. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the fun of listening to Seatmate, this audiobook-first romance packed with a full cast of narrators, believable sound effects, and audible chemistry between the two leads. Ronconi conveys Gwen’s lively snark and enthusiasm beautifully as Gwen draws the quieter Sam out of his shell. Webber makes Sam’s caring and lovable nature—and every goofy laugh—seem completely real. An addicting treat for listeners.
