Testimonials

25/05/19 “I can say the narrator did an excellent job. He had a nice voice, was easy to listen to, and the material flowed well under his narration.”

02/02/19 “JD Kelly’s narration is terrific. He has a deep voice that perfectly suits Craven’s larger than life personality, but his voice also adds to the overall eerie feeling of foreboding woven throughout this story.”

04/10/18 “He does a great job, and nails the atmosphere within about thirty seconds into the book. His narration is smooth and creepy, I don’t know how he pulls that off, but it is well done I can tell you that for nothing. I do like his reading style, and his voice keeps your attention.”

04/11/18 ” Narrator JD Kelly does a nice job of reading the old text and keeping it flowing.”

10/11/18 “The narrator did a great job with the tone of the delivery, it was easy to listen to and had a smooth consistent sound”

30/11/18 “This is a good version of the classic. The narrator did an excellent job. If you need to read it, this is the way to do it.”

18/09/18 “JD Kelly does a great job here. He manages to do a few tones and I’m eager to listen to more from him. He’s one to watch.”

20/08/18 “The narrator, JD Kelly, was awesome. He put emotion behind the words and had a clear voice. I’ll have to check out more from him.”

09/10/18 “A classic brought back to life by the fantastic narration of JD Kelly! I’m familiar of course with his name and his work, generally, but have never, until now, read/listened to the entire story, and loved it!”
