It's read by Simon Prebble. I absolutely love his voice. His 1984 is probably my favorite audiobook (I listen to audiobooks a lot).
He is great. From Wikipedia:
In the U.S., he also began narrating audio books,and to date (2012) has recorded well over 450 titles. As one of AudioFile Magazine's 'Golden Voices' and 'Best Voices of the Century', his work has gained him five 'Listen Up' awards, thirty 'Earphone' awards, and in 2005, he was named 'Narrator of theYear' by Publishers Weekly. Nominated fifteen times for the 'Audies' (the audiobook 'Oscars'), he was finally awarded a coveted 'Audie' in 2010, the year he was also named Booklist's 'Voice of Choice'.
..that whole period is wild for inventors I'm surprised there aren't more movies about it!
