Praise received for simonevers (Simon Evers) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Dear Sir, I just listened to "Jaffery". Thank you!!! I love your voice, and have listened to many of your readings. I specially like solo books. In Jaffery, I enjoyed in the American accent you did! Fun! Enjoyed the unusual plot too! Great choice, but I would listen to anything you read!
Thank you so very, very much for all the wonderful hours you have entertained me!
Sincerely, Lynn
Full time listener to LibriVox

All of Simon's recordings!

Praise received for tony123 (Tony Oliva) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Thanks to Tony Oliva I've enjoyed and fell in love with most of George Gibbs books, I don't have time to read but Librivox made it possible to discover new dead authors.

My gratitude comes with a wish, as I said I loved George Gibbs books, and I was wondering if Tony Oliva could continue his wonderful reading of the rest of the books by this amazing author.

Thank you again Tony Oliva and thank you Librivox for everything.

All of Tony's recordings!

Praise received for gypsygirl (Karen Savage) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
I would like to thank Karen Savage for her clear, ‘accentless’ reading of ‘Tales from Shakespeare’ by Charles and Mary Lamb.

I have a number of dyslexic students in my English classes (at a school founded in Shakespearean times, some 36 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon) for whom a simplified overview of a number of Shakespeare’s plays, from Twelfth Night, Macbeth, and Much Ado About Nothing, to The Tempest, Merchant of Venice, and Romeo and Juliet, not forgetting A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Hamlet, could prove to be most useful.

As a budding voice artist myself I fully appreciate the time, dedication and post-production skills employed to ensure that your voice comes across as clear and without artefacts intruding on your final audio.

Thank you.

Laurence

and...

To Karen Savage,
Thank you so much for your recordings of Jane Austen,
I have enjoyed Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice so much.
You read it so clearly and at a perfect speed.
I hope you get this message to know how much your recordings are appreciated.
best wishes
Jane

All of Karen's recordings!

Praise received for bedwere (bedwere) from our 'Thank a reader' feature regarding his recording of De Civitate Dei Libri XXII:
Thanks to bedwedere for pronuncing Latin normally and for not ruining it with the classical pronunciation
and...
Thank you, your readings of Augustine (Confessiones, De Civitate Dei)
are exceptionally well done. You remind me of the great Felix Sanchez
Vallejo. These are some of the best I have ever heard and I really
hope you'll spare some time to do more in the future.

All of bedwere's recordings!

I just heard a thanks to Peter Yeartsley "of audiobook fame" on the Ridiculous History podcast. (1 November), They were suggesting people should go over to the Ephermeral podcast, where his recording of "The Haunted Orchard" was used.

Thank you very much! I agree with you that his books are very enjoyable. I had thought that I had probably read through his best works, but - thanks to you :) - I'll do another check on his remaining novels. Some of those available texts didn't seem in a good enough condition to make for easy recordings the last time I checked, so I'll have to give them another look and see when I have the time to commit to it.

Again, thanks!

Tony

Praise received for Jmbau13 (Jane Bennett) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
To Jane: Thank you so much for narrating "Princes and Poisoners." It
is an excellent book, well researched, using contemporary documents and
testimonies. It is a pleasure to read such a book, or hear it read as
in my case.

Thank you for taking so much of your time to make tjis available to
those of us who have trouble reading.

When hearing the book, I noticed that the narrations in Sections 15 and
16 are identical. As a result, I could not get to Section 15 "A
Magistrate Part 2" because it has the text of Section 16, "The Death of
Madame." Is it possible that the original text of Section 15 can be
made available to us?

Again, thank you so much for your work on this book.

Susan

All of Jane's recordings!
How lovely of Susan to give this feedback.
Is there any way to advise them that the error was fixed a little while ago? (I was mortified about that)
regards
Jane Bennett

Praise received for johng (John Greenman) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Hello John,



Just a quick note to say "thank you" for a wonderful reading of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. What a classic novel with a classy reading that did indeed do the book and the author justice. I enjoyed it very much. This was my first LibriVox book. I'm sure I will be listening to many more of your readings. Thanks for doing this!



Sincerely,

Kirk

I love the way Dawn Murphy reads Washington Square by Henry James. Her cadence is relaxing and soothing. Wondering if she has any other recordings on Librivox. Thank you Dawn, of El Secundo California.

Praise received for Kitty (Sonia) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Hello, Sonia,

Thank you for your reading of Auriol, or The Elixir of Life ( https://librivox.org/auriol-or-the-elixir-of-life-by-william-harrison-ainsworth/ ). Thoroughly enjoyed it! I bought a paperback of the story back around 1983, and as with many other books and short stories I'm finally getting read or heard, it has taken all these years to explore it; but well worth the wait for your performance of it! Pure fun! That you have also done Hugo's Hans of Iceland, and Marsh's The Seen and Unseen, is a great bonus! I will be enjoying those at some point too. Your reading of poetry is also wonderful, as with Verhaeren. Very sweet and feeling. Well done, and thank you again.

Kind regards,

Paul
