Author of The Real Enemy, Narrated by Tim Lundeen:Kathy Herman, author
I just got the reference CDs... they are WONDERFUL. I couldn't be more thrilled with the production. Tim is amazing. His narration of my book added so much... and he did a great job making the characters distinctive. I thoroughly enjoyed listening. Please tell him thanks for me.
Author of Trust With a Razor, narrated by Tim Lundeen:Michael Combe, author and publisher (Mountainland Publishing)
“Your narration was truly brilliant. It was a fabulous reading. Thank you so much.
“Tim Lundeen makes the melodramatic aspects of Bunn’s plot work to his advantage, giving the cardboard character of the studio head a voice that oozes villainy while the hero has a voice straight out of a classic TV Western. Lundeen also makes the tension in two sequences that involve fire realistic.” (Review on AudiofileMagazine.com, of “Heartland” by Davis Bunn)AudiofileMagazine Review, Fiction Narration
Audiobook Production, produced and directed by Tim Lundeen:Wes Bleed, voice talent
When I work with Tim, I know we're going to get a great finished product. His attention to detail, his ability to coach the talent and his standard of excellence at all levels of the production process really shine through.
Tim's voice is great, he nailed the intonation, and improved the script for flow.Richard Ackermann, Producer (client)
On The Crucified Life by A. W. Tozer (published by OasisAudio.com)REVIEW from Audiofile Magazine
With compelling clarity, Tim Lundeen narrates Tozer's thoughts on what it means to live a crucified life—and then describes the struggles and victories of such a life. Lundeen's delivery of Tozer's beliefs on faith—what true faith looks like and why faith must be seen—sounds fully genuine. - G.D.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
On Too Good To Be True by Benjamin AnastasREVIEW from AudioFile Magazine
Tim Lundeen narrates this litany of woes with precise enunciation. He captures the vitriol Anastas feels for the man his ex-wife left him for, and it’s not pretty. Lundeen excels in communicating the author’s love for his son, particularly in a letter to the boy that is presented at the end of the work. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2012]
From online review of “Witness Protection” by Holly CopellaREVIEW on Audible.com
“As to the narration: He was damn good. His men had sexy voices and the women sounded like women, and he read with terrific emotion. I would definitely listen to Tim Lundeen again.”
