Fiction and Audiobooks

So, I have now embarked on Season 4 of my audiobook podcast and for those who haven’t already joined the party, this latest reading is the famous science fiction classic, War of the Worlds by H G Wells.  I am excited to be doing something a little different from the first 3 books, with a much greater emphasis on the narrator telling the story from a first person point of view.  In fact there are 2 separate narrators and the story unfolds with a gripping and tense observation on the acts of an aggressive invader – a somewhat topical subject in the light of Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine. 

This section of my blog is devoted to fiction – reading, writing, and perhaps most important narrating.  I have received so many emails, comments and thank yous for my audiobook recordings that I have decided to devote more time to this endeavour.  Complete unabridged recordings of The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas and the Sherlock Holmes canon can be found on Librivox.  David Clarke on Librivox

    Thank you, David for coming back with such wonderful readings. I am listening to David Copperfield and thoroughly enjoying it.

    1. David says:

      Glad you are enjoying it. I am also enjoying having my own outlet and being completely in control of the process.

  2. Kurt Peters says:

    Hello David — I would like to add my thanks to the others’ for your Sherlock Holmes readings. I have many recordings of Sherlock Holmes material, including the incomparable readings by Robert Hardy from the 1980s. Until now, his were the standard by which I judged all others. But now there is a new standard. Your nuanced readings add immeasurably to the enjoyment and understanding of Sherlock Holmes stories. The fact that they are available for free at Librivox is the icing on the cake. Thank you!
