Full Cast Versus Single Reader Audio Books

This week I have a question for my fellow audio book nerds: full cast or single reader?

I have developed a distinct preference, but I realize that doesn’t mean everyone else has. To get a better sense for the general feeling among others who ingest much of their reading through their ears, I thought I’d just ask.

So, for the following poll question, it is understood that each audio book performance is its own thing and should be evaluated on a case by case basis, but in general, if both a quality full cast reading and a quality single reader performance were available for a given book, which would you prefer to listen to?

Your comments are appreciated as well!

Thanks! I’m doing this as my blog this week to help me wrap my head around how to best go about creating quality audio book experiences of my fiction and non-fiction. This looks to be way down the line for me from a production standpoint, but I figured it’s an important thing to start examining now.

Also, in case you missed it, last week I announced that submissions are open for an anthology I’m doing for Halloween, with a spooky, otherworldly flavor. Check it out here: Call for Short Story Submissions: PSYCHOPOMPS (An Anthology).
