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

    HI David,
    Just want to say I really loved your recording of The Count of Monte Cristo. Listening to it over the past year will be something I will never forget.

    Hi, David: My wife and I are enjoying your reading of the Count of Monte Cristo as we travel across Canada, currently lost in the emptyness of the Canadian shield.

    We just wanted to express our appreciation for one of the most evocative audiobook productions we’ve ever listened you. It is flawless, and you manage to capture the atmosphere and characters exquisitely.

    Please keep on with your readings.

    Hi, David! So enjoy your narration. I have started seeking out your recordings almost regardless of what novel it is!
