Publisher's Summary

Here at Audible, we know just how much of an impact a voice can have on a story - taking simple words and filling them with elation, wonderment, tragedy, or pure satisfaction. We rely on our narrators every day to bring our favorite stories and characters to life - to introduce us to new authors and genres, or even to a new (perhaps longer) commute. And though our narrators are the best story tellers in the business, it's usually someone else's that they're telling.
This holiday season, as our gift to you, we asked 19 beloved performers to share their own personal holiday memories. With each story - some that will make you laugh, some that deal with loss, many that are filled with love and revelation - we, the listeners, get to know the person behind the voice with which we've grown so familiar.
We had a lot of fun putting this together, and we wholeheartedly thank our narrators for so generously sharing their voices and helping to brighten our holiday season.
From all of us here at Audible - happy holidays and happy listening!

Is Some Kind of White Elephant Gift?

While I like the idea of hearing more about where some of our favorite audible narrators came from -- in their own words -- this is a strange little bonus gift for listeners -- like that white elephant gift nobody at the party wants to take home.

Essentially, this a collection of Christmas Cards from some of Audible's favorite narrators. And while I liked hearing about where Jonathan Davis grew up, or Scott Brick's geeky holiday traditions, and Kate Reading's thoughts on clinging to the light amidst the darkness, it's hard to get beyond the feeling that this is just an odd sort of holiday smorgasbord for Audible listeners. I think it would've worked better if it had been distributed on Audible Channels somehow, or on the blog? Honestly, as a collection of stories, I don't understand why it was organized this way.

It's a nice thought but it's not Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Andersen, or any of the others we've received over the years. They're voices most of us love, but as a whole it's wrapped haphazardly.

Much fun

It is wonderful to hear so many different stories of the Holiday season, from so many people that are usually reading stories from other people's minds.
