I’m listening now and enjoying Rachel’s narration. Well said regarding the writing as I find both the tempo and writing here more pleasing than in other mysteries I’ve read. The cringe-worthy cliches are not present! I’m slightly more than half-way through and the Rachel character is starting to weigh on me. I find myself wishing she could straighten up and just be reliable for a few days. Ohh, the curse of the drink. I suppose, though, that means she is interesting as a character as I am rooting for her. Well done on the review and look forward to discussing when I’m finished listening. Thanks!

Comment on Judging the Audies – Round 1 by Carolyn H. Gilbert /industry-news/judging-the-audies-round-1/#comment-7444 Tue, 20 Jan 2015 18:01:22 +0000 /?p=633#comment-7444 Erin – I really REALLY appreciated your articulate, interesting, and very thoughtful post about your audio judging experience. I identified with everything you wrote, because I, too, am an avid audiobook fan, and have listened to dozens and dozens and maybe even hundreds of audio books over the past 10-14 years. I too, listen with a very discerning ear for tone, pronunciation, spirit, pacing, emphasis, clarity of diction, appropriatness of character’s age and gender. I believe that narrators are much like singers: they are almost nakedly exposed just like singers are through all the innuendos their voice reveals about them as humans. Most instrumentals can ‘hide’ behind their instruments, but singers and narrators have nothing to hide behind: their voice quality and management is such an exposure of their thoughts and understandings about the business in which they engage. You did an excellent job of expressing the challenge as well as the thrill of listening and judging. You are, indeed, fortunate to get to have served the public in this way. Thank you for your post.
