Publisher's Summary

It’s one year later, and a lot has changed.  

Audiobook superfan Vera is “in the industry” now, and Cameron is not so sure he’s onboard. Jennifer has rocketed to narrator fame, but not everyone is comfortable with her newfound status. Neil and Georgia are happily married, but their HEA is wreaking havoc on her writing career. With the Audie Awards just around the corner, all these tensions are higher than ever. But you know who’s feeling just fine?   

The Narwhal. Because the Narwhal...is in love.

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

She has done it again!!! Is it even possible that this one could be funnier than the first, I didn't think it could be but I was wrong! I laughed so much while listening to this audio play. As a romance audiobook listener these plays really make me feel like I am in on the inside jokes with the author and the narrators and I love that we can laugh about them all together. I also loved that the original narrators came back for #2 because they ARE these characters and also loved that we get a few new added characters & narrators. Not only is this play witty and funny but it's so spot on with some reality we see daily in the romance audiobook world. This feels like something I will need to listen to often, especially when I need to laugh. I suggest re-listening to book 1 so you can listen to them both together with the new sound design added to book 1 because it really added so much to the experience of these plays.

Totally hilarious!!!

The story was somewhat a satire of society stereotypes about sex, religion, sexual orientation. In addition, it also touched on narrators' preoccupations about their roles within the industry. totally enjoyed it! I n particular, Jennifer interaction with Andrea when she was trying to work at home and experiencing all different types of noises. Neil, Frankie and Georgia were really comical. Of course, the whole cast was great because all the narrators are great, combined with Erin Mallon's geniuses

In tears from laughter!

Absolutely hilarious and LOL worthy! People in the cars around me must have thought I was stark raving mad because I was laughing so hard that I couldn't breathe. Erin Mallon needs to bring us more of these insanely talented people and their characters. Bravo!!! I will never think of a home audio booth in quite the same way again. 😉

These Walls Can Talk 2

If you haven’t read These Walls Can Talk you must because These Walls Can Talk 2 is even better.

You fall in love with the characters in book 1 and you get to find out how they are doing in book 2. I swear I never laughed so much listening to a book before.
If you’re a part of this romance audiobook community you will totally get it, feel like it is an inside joke of sorts. But also if you’re not you will enjoy it maybe even more because these characters suck you in.

My favorite part hands down is when Erin Mallon’s character comes in Smoochy my Boochy I have no idea if I am spelling it like it was written but it’s just down right funny.
Also; The Lords Work & Missionary… When Atticus says that’s what he wrote down I almost peed myself.
Too funny.

These narrators are amazing and I want more, I need more. I loved the story, I loved the bloopers.
Grabby hands more please!

Absolutely Hysterical!!

Laugh out loud with this one! The hilarious look inside the audiobook industry will have you cackling, especially if you are a fan of the romance genre. The characters are so likable and feel very real - and Atticus absolutely does me in! He comes across somewhat arrogant yet very emotional, sensitive and completely clueless all at the same time. I could not stop laughing when he misunderstands the dating profile questions and puts "missionary" as his position, thinking it means his favorite sexual position, not his position at his workplace. The entire cast is wonderful and I can't wait to listen to the last one in the series.

Hilarious fun!

Another installment of hysterical fun from Erin. I can not stop laughing at this story and the narration from this cast never fails to amaze me. I loved the introduction of the new characters and Maxine Mitchell and Erin Mallon did an amazing job with the narration. If you need a laugh this series of audio plays will do it for you.

Brilliance

Erin Mallon has brought the original cast back for a ‘what happens next...’ for a catch-up with out favourite audiobooks narrators/ audio engineer/ authors/ and listener, and this time, The Narwal is in love! Including two new characters that are all the things. The writing will keep you entertained from the moment you press play until the final ‘We hope you have enjoy this programme.’

With brilliant performances from Erin Mallon, Shane East, Andi Arndt, Teddy Hamilton, Tanya Eby, Joe Arden, Emma Wilder, and Maxine Mitchell. Each of them brought something special to the role they played and infused laughter and enjoyment for the listener whilst maintaining the top-notch quality we have come to expect from these pros. A must listen.

If you loved the first you will love this one as well. The gang's all back for another hilarious spoof of the romance audio industry.

Excellent cast of seasoned narrators and it sounds like they had fun doing the play. Highly recommend.

Need a laugh? Look no further!

You know when you need a good laugh that you can count on Erin Mallon. Could it be funnier than the first book? I think it just might be. This audio play brings us back to our good friends in the studio and lets us live in a day in the life of a group of authors and narrators. This quirky bunch plays out all the things we think they would be as listeners! The banter, the eccentricities, the writer's block, their own relationships, each making me laugh and just lighting up my day. With a cast of characters that seem to be written for the amazing cast of narrators, it could not be a better way to start my week. Add in the sound effects and stage direction, we are treated to a play in our minds and it's nothing short of pure magic.

Enjoy Erin's amazing story with Joe Arden, Andi Arndt, Shane East, Tanya Eby, Teddy Hamilton, Erin Mallon, Maxine Mitchell, Emma Wilder. I don't even have to comment about their performances, their names tell it all. Amazing, funny, heartfelt, quirky, you name it, this cast nails it! I am definitely looking forward to hearing more from these characters!

This is the audioplay you’re looking for

With this unexpected second play, the author delves a little more into the audiobook industry. From the difficulties of working from home to the discussion over pseudonymes, she reveals the internal cogs of the machine.

But she also knows how to exploits her colorful characters and we learn a bit more about their personal life, especially their love life–love is definitely at the center of this book. Their conversations are alternately hilarious and deeply emotional.

The narrators of the first play come back, with the addition of two female narrators–including the author herself–for two new characters. They’re once again amazing. The immersion is helped with a great sound design. Who needs eyes when you can see a play just with sounds?

This is the audioplay you’re looking for.

A Standing Ovation for This Brilliant Sequel!

How does one improve upon perfection? I sure don't know, but Erin Mallon does! These Walls Can Talk 2: The Narwhal Strikes Back! is sweet and funny and relatable and outrageous and all the things I dreamt of from the moment this creation was announced. Andi Arndt, Shane East, Tanya Eby, Teddy Hamilton, Emma Wilder and Joe Arden are all back reprising their roles, with new cast members Maxine Mitchell and Erin Mallon.

Right off the bat the Sound Design by Nick Long and Editing by Tyler Whitlach was perfection. It turned a book and narration into a play and experience for the listener. I was blown away by how perfect their creative choices were.

This play felt a bit like art imitating life. Challenges with at home recording studios, noises in the booth, kids in the apartment, These seem like challenges working parents (*cough* Erin) would experience on a regular basis especially since March 2020. Some of Neil's story line is even similar to stories I have heard Teddy Hamilton share in lives on facebook. Vera, is trying to carve out a career in the audiobook world in whatever way she can. If we could all make a living out of reading, wouldn't we try? The conversations about F/F romance and M/M romance were so accurate! Though I know quite a few people who enjoy F/F romance so maybe the market is growing?

While Erin's characters are fictional, they are archetypes of the people you find in the romance community, people who love books and the artists that create them. These Walls Can Talk 2 feels like a love letter to romance audiobooks and romancelandia and it was expertly written an performed.

Also, my name is in this play... MY NAME IS IN THIS PLAY!! sorry for the shouty capitals but OMG it was the coolest moment getting to hear my full name read by the talented Joe Arden! I fangirled HARD! At this point my husband was looking at me like I was a looney toon, so of course he had to listen too. Erin Mallon made all my audiobook, bookstagram, blogger romance reader dreams come true. Achievement unlocked, I have officially peaked but man it was good. (Vera would totally fangirl with me if I could tell her)

If you have any concerns about a sequel living up to the original, have no fear! This play is absolutely brilliant! 5 Stars and a standing ovation to Erin Mallon and the cast of TWCT2.

I received an ALC of this book and voluntarily give my review.

Outta breath

I listened to this while running. Big mistake!!! I laughed so hard I had to stop running. Listening to this tale is like eavesdropping on a conversation by a wacko bunch of friends as they talk about their work life dramas. Loved every second of it. Please Erin, can we have some more.
