Over on the Books board somebody asked about the voices in audiobooks: 

"Hi! I wanted to try a few audiobooks while working out at the gym. I don't want a book that does character voices, rather, I'd like to just have the story told. Is there a way to know which books are like that or is it a game of chance? "

Here's the link to the original question if you want to just reply to her there, although I would be interested in hearing the answer here!

Boy; not sure.  Obviously if there's more than one listed reader, it's voices.  I would think it depends on the book, but mostly the ones I listen to, the reader does somewhat do voices.  I'm not sure I'd want someone to just read - the voices (when well done, and most seem to be these days) add such personality to the book!
