Reader: David Barnes
Book: The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis

David,

Thank you so much for your beautiful reading of Rev. Wm. Benham's translation of The Imitation of Christ! I have it on my MP3 player and I listen to it several times a week.

It is one of my favorite books of all time and your reading of it is a real blessing!

Praise for CliveCatterall (Clive Catterall) via the 'Thank a reader' feature:
Quote:
Mr. Catterall:
I greatly enjoyed listening to your reading of The White Company by Arthur Conan Doyle. You have a tremendous gift of portraying the characters by the voice you give to each. Your consistent voice for each character brought each one to life and made them like old friends as the story progressed. Thank you for your thoughtful portrayal and reading. Please continue to bring these wonderful stories to us listeners.

Russell C.

Praise for ahab (Stewart Wills) via the 'Thank a reader' feature:
Quote:
To Mr. Wills, and to Librivox:

I am most of the way through the recording of Moby Dick and I must applaud the work done here. I have long endeavored to read the classics I missed out on in my school years, and this was one of them.

To sum up my approval, your voice and reading, Stewart Wills, is so friendly-familiar as to feel like my own brother or father giving a read. At the same time, your giving of different voices to different characters and your consistency (and I must add persistence) in keeping them sorted is nothing short of utterly professional. What is more, you read the book with a steady go as if you've read it 100 times before and you (seemingly) never stammer, stutter or hesitate except when heeded by context. Some words I wonder at your accuracy in pronunciation, yet you speak them with such confidence that, after a few times through any of those words, I can question no longer except to question my own judgment.

At this I can say that I have some serious questions and reservations about the content of the book. Despite this, I have thoroughly enjoyed it and MOST THOROUGHLY enjoyed your work done here Mr. Wills. Thank you!

Regards,
Christopher W.

Praise for Kaffen (Mark F. Smith) via the 'Thank a reader' feature:

Quote:
Mark Smith is one rockin' reader! Just finished The Magnificent Ambersons, a long book for one sole person to read. Much of the book was dialog, many characters, each with their own personality. Mark stayed in character as he read each person's part. From the very first paragraphs of dialog of the main character, Georgie Amberson, I knew he was snooty, proud, and self-centered. Mark even spoke the females' dialog with the proper inflections and nuances. I looked forward to listening to this book each afternoon on the drive home from work. Thank you so much.

Dick Sands the Boy Captain

I have just finished listening to this book read by Alex C Telander and felt I should say thank you for such an enjoyable experience. The pronunciation of the words was excellent and the reading was extremely clear from beginning to end. I have now looked for another book read by the same person.

Thank you

Praise for ohsostrange (Lee Elliott) via the 'Thank a reader' feature:
Quote:
Almost finished with Greener than you Think by Moore read by Lee Elliott. I listen to Librivox books every night, for about the past two years. It helps me unwind at the end of a day. This reading was really awesome. The inflection and story telling behind the reading is awesome. The book is great on its own but was really made even better by the reader. Thank you for spending a LOT of time reading this book. I never thought I’d finish it because it’s so long… but unfortunately I have. On to the next one. I’’m going to download some more of Lee Elliott’s readings. Thank you!

Praise for THynes (Tadhg) via the 'Thank a reader' feature:
Quote:
Dear Mr. Hynes,

I have had the great pleasure of listening to your recordings of 3 Thomas Hardy novels. I feel compelled to lavish hearty and high praise upon you as a Librivox reader. I have listened to perhaps 8 or more books or short story collections on Librivox and you have been, by far, the most outstanding reader I've heard. You are truly a brilliant reader, perfectly dramatic and masterful at creating and performing nuanced characters whose voices remain true and consistent. You bring these stories and characters vibrantly alive. I hope that you plan to record more books for Librivox, I am truly eager to hear your mellifluous voice again.

I first listened to your version of Far From the Madding Crowd, and was so impressed that I made an immediate search for you among the other Thomas Hardy novels. Once I had listened to The Woodlanders and A Pair of Blue Eyes I went online to see if you had recorded any other books. You see, I download Librivox podcasts on my iPhone, and listen to them before I go to sleep. Imagine my delight at hearing your lyrical voice each evening before slipping into my dreams. I have to confess that so far the voices of other readers are now quite jarring and difficult to appreciate. Ha!! You have ruined me. ;)

My sincere thanks and appreciation to you for the time and effort you put into these recordings. What a gift.

I wish you all the best,

Virginia M.


Tadgh's recordings of Hardy novels may found HERE.

Praise for pipesdreams (Moira Fogarty) via the 'Thank a reader' feature:
Quote:
Dear Moira Fogarty

This autumn Your voice has become very familiar to me :)

I listened You reading one of my favourite books, Emma by Jane Austen. At evenings, when I finally get my children to sleep, I sit down to knitting and -because I feel I don't spent my time well enough if I'm not doing at least two things at the same time- I listen a book! I use headphones because my Cara Sposo here is reading his book too. We spent quiet quality time together after a busy day.

I love reading and I always mention it to my main hobby, but love knitting too and I cannot do both at the same time -until I found Librivox recordings. This was my first audiobook-experience ever and I loved it very much. Thank You, Moira Fogarty :)
I wish all the best to You.

Sincerely,

Susi A.

Praise for usaeagle (Jonathan Burchard) and everyone at LibriVox via the 'Thank a reader' feature:
Quote:
Dear Librivox & Jonathan Burchard:

We are a family of seven. We do not have television and neither do many of our contemporaries. So, we read to ourselves and to each other often. This is wonderful and we have great fun doing it. BUT: Since recently discovering http://www.librivox.org , we have come to know and appreciate another dimension of literature. It's been such a blessing! We have had more questions asked and passages quoted (and miss-quoted) since we are able to listen to books we most likely would have avoided reading aloud due to length, or not found at all due to a small local library. Thank-you all for this great opportunity to explore and enjoy books!

Mr. Jonathan Burchard; we would like to personally and heartily thank you for reading Booth Tarkington's "Penrod" and "Penrod and Sam". You are celebrity material in our home! Those "story tapes" of your reading are trotted out and paraded in front of any visiting ear that might not realize the grandness that is Penrod's story.

We, and many families we know, have listened and thoroughly enjoyed both of those books. We really feel as though you brought Penrod and the whole cast of characters to vibrant, mischief-filled life. And, we love every single second of it! We have laughed so hard we have needed to back it up so as not to miss anything. We have not grown weary of listening to either of them, and I believe that when your children can quote passages from the book while trying to mimic the reader that the reader has done a splendid job! Thank-you so much for devoting your time and talent to these projects. (And here is where we would all be vigorously pumping you hand up and down in zealous gratitude!)

Thank-you again, so very much!

Sincerely,
Anna W.

Praise for kayray (Kara Shallenberg) via the 'Thank a reader' feature:

Quote:
Please pass on my thanks to Kara Shallenberg for her reading of Frances Hodgson Burnett's, The Secret Garden. She brought the story alive and conveyed all the mystery, sadness, and joy the story holds. I am in the process of rereading some classic books from my childhood and listening to a few on the bus to work, on a cold English autumn morning, is a good use of the time. I appreciate the time it must have taken Kara.

Kind regards
Keith D.
