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,
    I wanted to thank you for your time and effort in creating these beautiful audiobooks. I am on my fourth Go ‘round , listening to your version of The Count Of Monte Cristo again, and I still can’t get enough. This reading in particular has gotten me through a very rough period in life, and I am truly beyond thankful for it. Thank you again and I wish you continued happiness and success

    Hi David,

    I just wanted to thank you so much for your Librivox narrations of the Sherlock Holmes stories. They are absolutely brilliant, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them. Your narration of The Valley of Fear is my favourite! Thank you again for putting so much time into them, and all your hard work. It’s deeply, deeply appreciated.

    Thank you so much for your audiobooks, you read them so beautifully with brilliant accents, it totally submerges me and now I feel I don’t want to listen to anyone else! Please consider reading North and South by Elisabeth Gaskell ☺️
