    "A good resource for those that know how to use it."

    Paul Meier's full books are more comprehensive but if you know how to use a resource like this, it's very good for a short review.

    "Fun!"

    I don't have a character to accent, but I enjoyed listening to this. As the child of an Irish-woman from Dublin, I've never been able to tell the difference in the accents of the north and south of Ireland. this was helpful and fun to listen to.

    Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.

    "Good stuff"
    What made the experience of listening to Accent Your Character - Irish the most enjoyable?

    It is so easy to listen to and start to mimic


    What was most disappointing about Paul Meier’s story?

    Went too fast.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent resource for those of us who wish to fake an Irish accent however, it is just a start. Go to Ireland if you are serious about acquiring this skill. Lookit, such a lovely whimsical way of speaking to be sure.

    "Listen carefully..."

    ...and you'll hear Paul Meier giving you everything you need to begin developing your own authentic Irish-flavored voice. While there is a good deal of how-to here, Meier's magic is in the telling of the tale. Analysis is an excellent approach to this material, but please don't overlook the possibilities of simply listening--truly listening--to the master's voice. There is far more awaiting you than you might expect.

    "Not for Actors!"

    IF YOU're an actor looking for an accent resource, keep moving!

    This audiobook is designed for storytellers and role players according to the bumpf. My bad in that I didn't realise what this would mean.

    It covers Irish, Northern Irish and even Dublin all mixed together. If you tried really hard you could pick out some useful tips but, for me,it isn't even worth the £2.45 I paid.

    A lot of it is concerned with vocabulary and what a character might say in a story. ( Using the same selection of vocabulary).

    Paul Meier ( the narrator) does deserve praise for being the man who set up the International Dialects of English Archive. In fact their website includes native speakers reading a standard text, which is very useful when learning an accent. Paul fills time by doing this here, but switches between Northern and Southern Irish making it rather confusing.

    Maybe, if you're just after a general diddley dee, this might do the job.

    "Is good for a starter"

    It's got some good tips on that could come in very handy. A short piece but many different examples to try out. I'm happy I bought it

    "Warning - this is Northern Irish"

    This should have been titled as Northern Irish because it is far too nasal too be considered a republic accent
