Actually, they let you search on narrator in your library. Go to the main Library view, and type in the narrator's name in the search box. This returns all books in your library with that narrator. (Note it will also include any books for which they are the author.)

One of the reasons that I use OpenAudible is that it pulls back all the meta data, including narrator, from Audible and presents it in a reasonable format. I'm using it to update my audio calibre list with the narrator.

Well, except for the questions I have for CRussel just above, and this one:




Jon, I have you as unrated for this in the list since the list ratings are 1-5, but I could put you down for a 4.5; just let me know if you'd like that.
Sure, go for it.

I just listened to two narrators for two different Saki short story collections.

I'll give Ian Richardson a 4 for his narration of Saki's The Chronicles of Clovis. He's an actor known for various things including the original UK House of Cards. He had a very florid and dramatic style, and while it contrasted a bit with Saki's simpler language I still really enjoyed it and he really helped to bring the biting wit at times to sparkling life.

Cathy Dobson will get a 3 for Saki's Beasts and Super-Beasts. It would either be a 2 or 3; she has a little bit of a sing-song voice and didn't do much with different voices, but I'll settle on 3 because she was adequate.

I meant to reply before, but thank you! It's still strange they don't list them out but this will help.
