A laid back tour de force

(5 stars)

This reading is remarkable--and a good deal of fun to hear. He manages to stay engaged with the thread of the story in a nonchalant manner, while doing various character voices and playing with the narrative's phrasing just a bit. I've heard it said that some people can juggle five balls and make it seem easy. Now I believe them.

prelude is perfectly named

(5 stars)

a most enjoyable reading of a perfect story. I was left wanting more, knowing that no more was needed. It is perfect the way it is.
