The author Sherman Alexie himself narrates the audiobook of The Absolutely True Diary Of A Part-Time Indian, which has won many awards for Alexie's creation of an idiosyncratic first-person voice of Arnold. "Alexie is the perfect choice to read his own story." Alexie is able to convey the messages that the missing cartoons, caricatures, and sketches reveal in the printed text. Alexie is able to do this because of his experience as an orator. He won the Taos Poetry Circus World Heavyweight Championship award three years in a row for his oratorical virtuosity.
