Praise received for composerscott (Scott D. Farquhar) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Thank you Scott D. Farquhar for your reading of Star Surgeon by Alan Edward Nourse (https://librivox.org/star-surgeon-by-alan-edward-nourse/). I almost skipped this science fiction, but I am very glad I didn't. I thought your reading was excellent! I liked your voices for the three main characters — Dal, Tiger, and Jack. At first I was put off by Jack's strange accent, however, I quickly appreciated it and soon Jack seemed just as real and natural as everyone else. Whenever Tiger got excited his manner of speaking reminded me of a young Keith Carradine, so Tiger looked like Keith Carradine in my mind's eye. I also had distinct mental images for Dal and Jack. Regarding the story, Star Doctor has one of the best plot twists I've encountered in a long time, on the plague planet. All in all your reading and the story made the book an unexpected treat. Thank you! I'll have to see what else you have read for LibriVox.

I've been listening to The Theory of Moral Sentiments; thank you for your clear recordings, and also your voice reminds me that of Ellen Mclain voice-acting of Glados in Portal video game. :)

Thank you for your feedback. I love Adam Smith and feel fortunate to be able to take on such material.

I've contacted Bethesda volunteering to re-record some of their Skyrim characters. I won't even ask for an advance copy of anything. Any day now. . . .

Praise received for MaryAnnSpiegel (MaryAnn) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Thank you so much for your reading of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina

I have spent years being too frightened to try and read it for fear of
failure. However your reading is just wonderful; the tone of voice,
the pronunciation, the pace of reading. This audobook is incredible
and I am flying through it, enjoying it immensely.

You have obviously put in a huge amount of work to ensure the
exceptionally high level of professionalism in your reading of this
book.

Again thank you

Praise received for MARTIN GEESON (Martin Geeson) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Martin,

I need to say that I am taking great pleasure in your reading of the novel (The Idiot, part 1 and 2).
I encountered it only because I recommended the book to a friend who has had a form of epilepsy, and who is, at present unable to read for an extended period. So now I have started listening to it myself I have become absorbed.

Your reading is wonderfully lucid. Your style is most agreeably unmannered but it brings out the characters with great sympathy and feeling.
What I really like is the way you delicately reveal the comedy in the book (something I confess that I failed to see when I read it myself years ago) -I find myself laughing quietly in delight.

So, many thanks,

John,
Dublin

Praise received for gypsygirl (Karen Savage) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Listening to Karen Savage read, “Rainbow Valley”, by L. M. Montgomery was a treat. She reads flawlessly and can change her voice to each character with such ease, there is no question to whose lines I am hearing. It is as good as a professional storyteller. I will look for her name as reader, knowing I will enjoy it thoroughly. I am in awe to her talent. I tried reading to my children, using different voices. However, I could never switch from the voice, back to my own, when required. I always gave up after a page or two. Thank you Karen!


All of Karen's recordings!

Praise received for Read (Kristin Lewis) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

I enjoy listening to Kristin Lewis’s voice. She is so soft spoken, but easily heard. I listened to her read, “Trading Jeff and His Dog”, by Jim Kjelgaard. Her voice is incredibly soothing. I was disappointed, at first, when a mans voice, came on, after a few chapters. However, he too, was very nice to listen to. I soon got over my disappointment, but was pleased, when Kristin finished reading the last chapters. I will look for other titles she has read, just to enjoy listening to her voice. Thank you Kristin! I hope you will read many other stories, you have a great talent.

All of Kristin's recordings!

Praise received for 2peltons (Mike Pelton) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

I listened to, Mike Pelton, read, “Rescue Dog of the High Pass”, by Jim Kjelgaard. I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful story, and Mike’s reading of it. I see that he has read, for many books. I am looking forward to listening to many of them. He is very talented! His voice is very strong and enjoyable to listen to. Thank you Mike, for lending your talent and time, to bring enjoyment to many people. I appreciate your voice very much.

All of Mike's recordings!

Praise received for wandering (Ray Clare) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

To Ray Clare:

Now that I have little children underfoot, reading is a luxury. I never knew how much I'd miss it. Thank God for librivox and its devoted narrators. I love you all. You, particularly, Ray: thank you so much for getting such a lot of Hilaire Belloc and G.K. Chesterton into recorded form: I'm not sure I'd ever have got around to them any other way, and you have made them enjoyable as well as available. In my head, now, your voice, and droll delivery, ARE the sound of Belloc-- your reading so well suits his words. I've listened through volumes of his essays in your voice, and loved them. Your recording of Manalive was my first foray into Chesterton, and I've gone on to listen to, and actually read (!) several of his other works as a result. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into your recordings.

All of Ray's recordings!

Praise received for Ralph Snelson (Ralph Snelson) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Mr. Ralph Snelson

I could not have imaged or asked for a better reader with which to circumvent the world.

Thank you for lending your animated voice, your talents, and your time to bringing the joy of “Around the World in 80 Days” to me.

Your rendition truly swept me away…… by steamer, train, elephant, and sledge!

All the best to you and my many thanks again.

All of Ralph's recordings!
