  • Frank Muller: A Montage

    Frank Muller was one of the most talented narrators to ever record a book. As Stephen King said, "[When Frank reads], the blind will see, the lame will walk, and the deaf will hear."

    Jimmie says: "I owe so much to Frank Muller"
    "What a loss"
    Overall

    I remember first listening to The Gunslinger and thinking that the narration was absolutely superb. Then I noticed George was replaced on book two and I was hugely disappointed - only to find that Frank was (in this case, for me) even better. I frequently target books read by Frank (and George as well) - but for me the Dark Tower will always be a story sprung forth from Steven King's mind via Frank Muller's mouth.

    Selfishly I am sad Frank will no longer be converting any more written words directly into images and sound in my head. My heart also goes out to his family and those who knew him. What a loss.

  • A Prayer for Owen Meany

    Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

    Maxine Fuentes says: "Wonderful"
    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    I absolutely loved this reading and the story. I never read the book - but I feel narration is the way to go with this story. You need to HEAR Owen ... not just read boldface fonts. This is a great story that is very well read!
