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 another great performance with David Copperfield. I imagine you need a break, but when you are ready I look forward to your next book.

      Thanks Holly, yes I am ready for a break and in fact we have a trip booked to the UK in September so I am going to use that time to refresh and decide on my next work. I’m thinking something different and Thomas Hardy and HG Wells have been on my mind but am open to any suggestions
