What are you listening to? (Audiobooks)
I really enjoy listening to Susan Ericksen perform the audio editions. She enfuses a personality that aligns with my idea of these characters. It has been a nervous summer for me as I have used Audiobookstand to purchase many of the In Death’s. They were the outlet for Brilliance Audio who had the audio publishing contract. With JD Robb’s change of publisher, the audio publishing is changing as well. Audiobookstand is closing business on July 31 (not because of Nora, I’m sure). Fortunately for us, Susan Ericksen will remain as performer. Thank you, Nora, for negotiating that with the new publisher. I’m not an Amazon fan, but they are the outlet to whom I was referred. See my sad face. I anxiously await my last Audiobookstand order of Devoted, Echos and Secrets.
Ericksen is the best, I agree. It would be weird hearing the books narrated by anyone else at this point. I don’t 100% agree with every voice/accent for every character, but she’s still amazing at it.
This might not be a popular opinion, but I would still love to see GraphicAudio do a dramatised adaptation of the books. It would give the In Death series a movie without being a movie. For the record, if Nora still preferred having Ericsson on a dramatised adaptation, GraphicAudio actually works out a way where the narrator can voice one or two of the characters.
Emma by Jane Austen
Emma Woodhouse prides herself on being a gifted matchmaker—even if she doesn’t always choose wisely for her friends and almost misses her own Mr. Right. The accomplished cast and sumptuous sound design bring the novel’s iconic characters (noble Mr. Knightley, sly Frank Churchill, gentle Miss Bates, and, of course, the delightful, exasperating Emma) and 19th-century British society to vivid life.
