Leviathan Audio Book with Alan Cumming

Our March featured read, Leviathan, is also out in audio book! It's narrated by Alan Cumming (left), who was Fegan Floop in the Spy Kids movies and Nightcrawler in the X-Men films.

Want to hear a sample of the book, plus Scott reading the afterward? Head to Scott's site, where you can have a listen!

I can't think of a better narrator for Leviathan. How cool!

I associate Alan Cumming with Mr. Elton in Emma (Gwyneth Paltrow version).

I appreciate really good audio book readers.

PERFECT!!!

I was totally thrilled when I heard that Alan Cumming was going to read Leviathan. For one thing, he's Scottish, and Deryn's Scottish wordplay is a big part of the voice of the series. Also, his famous part in Cabaret, the MC, used a German accent, so I knew he could do Alek and his Austrian helpers as well.

And best of all, i got to hang out in the studio and have lunch with Alan. I have proof:

He is the perfect reader for Leviathan, for sure. I agree Jen - I always think Mr. Elton when I see Alan Cumming. He was perfect in that role too.

That is so cool, Scott! Excellent post with your pic. I definitely like his hair black best. :~)
