Praise received for ahab (Stewart Wills) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
I want to thank Stewart Wills for his amazing reading of Moby Dick. A few years ago, well into my fifties, I thought I really should read Moby Dick. I got as far as the infamous chapter 42 and gave up. But Mr. Wills' reading brought the story to life, to an extent that I want to read it in print now. He's not only a good reader, he's also a great voice actor. The different characters all had their distinct voices, all done so well. Thank you for making this story accessible.


All of Stewart's recordings!

Praise received for mrwemmick (Peter John Keeble) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Mr. Keeble,

Thanks very much for your reading of Bleak House. You made the characters and the story come alive - I enjoyed it cover to cover (or perhaps track to track).

Thank you to Mark Barnes for your great work reading such a large portion of the Confessions of St. Augustine! You really bring the material to life in a way that is both respectful and cordial.

Thank you, Ian Skillen, for reading part of Dead Men's Money. You are blessed with a pleasant and strong clear voice. I looked up your name to see what other books you read and plan to listen to the other two also.🙂 martha from the Ozarks

Praise received for sskim (S S Kim) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Hi S. S. Kim,

This is just a quick note to say thank you for your amazing reading of "History of the Jews in Russia and Poland..". Due to your reading, I do not have an obscure, ignorant and incomplete knowledge about that vast subject spanning over hundreds or even thousands of years.

Although neighboring both Poland, Ukraine and Russia - from Romania - I never had that kind of privilege, to have access to that kind of information, or to be taught that in school. As you know, all Eastern Europe and Russia have been under communist rule, hence history, the truth was what the leaders decided.

In regards to the Jewish people, it is still a shame that in most of the Eastern block and Russia people are still ruled by superstitions, myths, misconceptions and various other biases.

I'm looking forward to the second installment.

Thank you and kind regards,

Mike,

Praise received for Sue Anderson (Sue Anderson) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Dear Ms. Anderson,

Thank you very much for the wonderful reading of John Lloyd Stephens
two books, "Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and
Yucatan" (Vol. 1 & 2).

https://librivox.org/incidents-of-travel-in-central-america-chiapas-and-yucatan-vol-2-by-john-lloyd-stephens/

I have traveled to Mexico and wanted to read the books for many years,
but never had the time. But listening to you read them provided many
hours of pleasure. I learned a lot of historical information along
the way.

Thank you again for a job well done!
and...
To volunteer narrator Sue Anderson,
Thank you so much for your reading of By Ox Team to California - A Narrative of Crossing the Plains in 1860. I thoroughly enjoyed the non-fiction account of Lavinia Honeyman Porter, and I am grateful for the resource of all these books made available by Librivox and their volunteers! Your reading style is very clear and slow enough that I become entirely enveloped in the story! I also enjoyed In Dakota with General Custer.
Sincerely,

All of Sue's recordings!
Ann

Praise received for simonevers (Simon Evers) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
Dear Mr. Evers:

I just finished listening to your recording of John Caldigate by Anthony Trollope. Thank you so much for recording it! Having Trollope read to me is one of my life's great pleasures and your reading made this story that much more delightful. Your reading is perfect and it's obvious that you understand and appreciate Trollope's sensibilities and humor. I live in the southeastern Georgia countryside and often find myself driving long distances so I listen to many audiobooks. I plan to read the rest of what you have recorded for Librivox.

Again, many thanks for recording this! You've really done a wonderful service with your excellent reading!

All of Simon's recordings!

Praise received for MaryAnnSpiegel (MaryAnn) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
to Maryanne for the beautiful reading of such titles as Spurgeon's "All of Grace" and Ryle's "Mark".

She is the best of all the narrators, in my experience.

and...
Hi,



I would really like to thank both Librivox and Mary Anne. I have found the narration of “War and Peace,” to be a spectacular way to go through my day. I am an analytical metals chemist and when I’m in the lab the work tedious. You have made War and Peace entertaining and I find myself in the shoes of a Bougie 19th century Russian eagerly awaiting my next serial. The way you read displays an inherent knowledge of the text. I have recommended your recordings on YouTube to anybody who is interested and cheer you on as you finish!

Thanks for making Tolstoy less intimidating!

Taylor

and...
Dear Ms. Spiegel,

I would like to thank you for the excellent job you did in reading Anna Karenina. I have not read the book, but despite it's size the narrative is progressing quickly and easily due to your fantastic vocal variations for the different characters.

God bless,
Connie

Praise received for gypsygirl (Karen Savage) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
I just want to thank you Karen for the beautiful breath of life that you imbued Lucy Maud Montgomery's wonderful "Anne girl". I just love sitting back, soaking in Ms.Montgomery's immortal tale and wiping back tears as I listen to Karen tell the tale.

She has the perfect freshness of voice and clarity of diction that makes it so enjoyable to listen to.

Smiles and sunshine from one Kindred spirit to another. :clap:

Hello Mrs. Savage,

Thank you so much for reading “Rilla of Inglside”. It makes me very happy and I listen to it every night. It makes me go to sleep.
When I first listened to it, I wanted to be Rilla. Then for Christmas, I received the whole series of books including Rilla of Inglside. Thank you again for reading this book and all the others you’ve read. I have downloaded a lot of the ones you’ve read, such as “Railway Children”, "Doctor Doolittle” and my other siblings like "Scarlet Pimpernel” which I hope to listen to soon. And please, if you have suggestions for me to read, I would love it if you'd let me know.

Thanks again and God Bless,

Meredith

All of Karen's recordings!
