Audiobook Week Day Two

Tuesday: Sound Effects in Audiobooks
Love them? Hate them? Take them or leave them? How do you feel about sound effects in audio books?
Alternate suggestions: Single narrator vs. multiple narrators vs. full cast, audio dramatizations, etc.

I do not have a lot of experience with audio books. I am not sure how sound effects affect me. I loved the fact there were several narrators in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. They helped make the individual characters come alive. I am currently listening to Great Expectations which has one narrator and like it too. What I am really picky about is the narrator's voice. I am only on my third audio book because of that.

Have you ended up abandoning a lot of audiobooks because you didn't care for the narrator?
