Praise received for RuthieG (Ruth Golding) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Ruth (Golding)
I would never have read women in love, but I felt it should be part of my education. Your reading was perfect. I rated it 5/5 in my literary rating and can now talk of Lawrence with enthusiasm. I look forward to re-visiting the Ken Russell film.
Best librivox reading I have encountered.
Many thanks

All of Ruth's recordings!

Bruce Pirie, you make me laugh. Your interpretation of Balzac works is flawles. You bring his wit and humor to life in an uncanny way. Please, please do a second reading of his other works.
Thank you for your good work.

Praise received for Adrian (Adrian Praetzellis) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Was ordered to read this book (Treasure Island) in high school many years ago. Recently pIcked it up as a recorded volume at my local library....recorded by a wonderful reader....in fact I didn’t sleep, but listened all night. (Not really a problem, for I knit Sox for Wounded Warriors while I listen!)

I do this very often, for the local library system has many, many titles for borrowing readers. May I give a shout out for a fine reader.......Adrian Praetzillis.

I will research more of the books he has narrated, for his thoughtful, measured, and correctly pronounced reading added immeasurably to my enjoyment of this classic!

And a shout out to your staff for their part in daily enjoyment for this 85-year old “reader.”

B., Austin, Texas

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

I am delighted with your reading of the book by F. B. Meyer, “The Directory of the Devout Life”

https://librivox.org/the-directory-of-the-devout-life-by-frederick-brotherton-meyer/

I am sharing the link with my Christian friends. One in particular, Paul, age 80, is in the hospital and he will be listening on his iPhone with some earbuds.

I see that the other book by F. B. Meyer, “Joseph: Beloved, Hated, Exalted” is no longer available. I am crestfallen at this news.

Bless you for taking the time to read so beautifully for us.

All of MaryAnn's recordings!

Praise received for sjmarky (Mark Nelson) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:

Thank you Mark Nelson for your readings of two more books I recently finished — Operation Outer Space by Murray Leinster (https://librivox.org/operation-outer-space-by-murray-leinster/) and Masters of Space by E.E. "Doc" Smith (https://librivox.org/masters-of-space-by-e-e-smith/). I think I could listen to your smooth voice reading old science fiction novels forever. Thanks for being a volunteer reader!

Anna Karenina
https://librivox.org/anna-karenina-deutsch-by-leo-tolstoy/

Liebe Frau Eva. K,
zurzeit lerne ich deutsch Sprache und seit einem Monat bin ich in Deutschland. Täglich höre ich das Hörbuch Anna Karenina und finde ich Ihre Aufführung sehr schön. Die Emotionen der Charaktere spielen Sie ganz deutlich und attraktiv und während der Erzählung ist Ihre Stimme wirklich angenehm.
Insgesamt mag ich Ihr Werk sehr und hoffe in Zukunft andere Arbeiten von Ihnen zu hören und zu genießen.
Ich wünsche Ihnen alles gut und viel Erfolg bei nächsten Arbeiten.
Viele liebe Grüße aus Jena

All of Eva's recordings!

Praise received for kayray (Kara Shallenberg) from our 'Thank a reader' feature:
I've been enjoying P G Wodehouse stories during my daily commute for a couple of months. It was a special treat when I heard Kara Shallenberg's clear voice give the Librivox introduction to "The Girl on the Boat". Sometimes I hate to get out of the car when the drive is over. My hearing isn't what it was a few decades ago, but Ms. Shallenberg's precise diction and perfect pacing allow me to fully enjoy the books and chapters she has contributed. She even makes a tedius novel -- I won't name names here -- palatable for a while.

All of Kara's recordings!

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

Dear Karen,
I have really enjoyed your readings in the Lucy Maud Montgomery series. I just finished “Rainbow Valley” version 2.

Your reading’s are terrific and make the book come alive. I can see Anne, with an E, and her children and friends all come alive with your readings. I’ve listened to a number of the books that you’ve read and you are as good, if not better, than the professional audio books that are read by actors. Now when I search for books on Libravox, one of the things I look for is who the reader is, and you are my first choice. I enjoy the books and the way you’ve read them so much! Each character has a slightly different tone/voice, so it’s effortless to follow along. I am able to form a picture in my head of each character when I’m listening to you read. Thank you so much for reading and recording the books.

All of Karen's recordings!
Ann
