is an Audie Award winning narrator who has earned numerous Earphones and Best Voice awards from AudioFile Magazine. Currently, a Scott Brick search on Audible returns a whopping 481 audiobooks. He certainly has quite a library to his name. He is charming via email, but all I really needed to know about his character I learned from Natalie from Book Line and Sinker. Not only did he make everyone’s day during June is Audiobook Month in 2011 when Natalie published the infamous phone interview, he featured Natalie in this year’s JIAM post. What’s not to love about an audiobook narrator who embraces his fans? I say absolutely nothing.
Scott has narrated a vast variety of books covering almost every genre. For example, he’s narrated many Clive Cussler, Harlan Coben, Frank Herbert, and Nelson DeMille titles. I personally enjoyed his work on In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. Those who enjoy true crime might also want to pick up The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. He surprised me (because I didn’t read the cast list before listening) when he showed up in The Mark of Zorro, which I listened to for the Armchair Audies. Those people who like action should check out the Jason Bourne series by Robert Ludlum. So many people are talking about Justin Cronin’s The Passage Trilogy, that I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that Scott has narrated the first two books. Finally, for Christmas zest, you can purchase Scott’s own version of A Christmas Carol from his website. He performed it in the spirit of an Orson Welles radio program, including special music.
Scott has written a tribute to his great grandfather, Jim Dennison. Not only did this man connect him to the spoken word in ways he didn’t immediately realize, it was his love for Jim that inspired Scott to go on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift. It is a touching story about love and family that will warm your heart. After listening to his narration and looking at the pictures included, it comes as no surprise to me that Scott would become the man he is today.
