I am an audiobook listener. As such, much of my enjoyment of a book rests on the narrator. I just finished listening to a book by one of the worst narrators I have encountered. I will not divulge her identity…) The story was involving enough for me to finish it, but as soon as I possibly could, I dropped it into the library drop-box. I thought: God! I have to find something fast! By chance, I picked up Deceit by James Siegel. I’m not even through the first disc yet, but I had to let you know that you are a great new discovery for me. Heck, I’m 56 years old, but I might try to find Yertle the Turtle and Goodnight Moon. I appreciate narrators that not only can do voices, but can evoke personality and emotion. I’m really appreciating what I think is your take on Valle’s world-weary situation paired with a not-quite giving up attitude. And your peripheral characters are a hoot! I don’t know much you keep up with others in the narration world, but yours is another experience that I join with Dick Hill, Scott Brick and Barbara Rosenblat as favorites. Here’s hoping to hear more from you.
Also, it’s wonderful what you are doing with the story-telling for kids. They are absolutely the hardest ones to fool. Thank You.
