Thank you LibriVox! Though I don't consider myself particularly well read, I would like to be. LibriVox is my primary resource as I am working my way though "the classics." Most mornings I set out for a jog before work with a LibriVox recording playing in my headphones. I am especially fond of the recordings by Mark Smith of Simpsonville, SC. From oppressively hot summer mornings, rainy springtime mornings, wonderfully crisp autumn mornings, to cold dark winter mornings, he has been my faithful companion along many miles of trail. So far I have enjoyed his telling of "Robinson Crusoe," "The Swiss Family Robinson," "White Fang," "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," and "Great Expectations." I look forward to more in the future.
Thank you for your dedication and great work.
I just want to say that I am in awe of your reading of Huckleberry Finn. Of course, there's your remarkable ability to change accents and voices, but I'm jealous of your patient, calming, core demeanor, and ability to convey nuance even when you say, "This is a Libravox Recording. All Libravox recordings are in the public domain."
I’ve just finished listening to Mark’s rendition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World (version 2 in your catalogue) and wanted him to know that I thoroughly enjoyed it! Please thank him on my behalf for entertaining me on my cycle to and from work over the last week and a bit. I listened through open ear headphones for safety and his voice was clear and easy to understand even with competing traffic and wind noise. I’m most grateful!
All the best,
Thank you for your clear, well pronounced and pleasant reading. As a
non-native English speaker or listener I have to first select the reader
and secondly the subject. You are my favourite and I am waiting for more!
All of Mark's recordings!
