Testimonials

Anneliese Rennie's performance was terrific. Her voice fit each character of each story. For her voice, my favorite was the last story with her country accent. This was an overall fun and strange listen.

ACX reviewer "Teresa" Book: Triple Shot of Unnatural Nature

"her style may surprise you. I found her melodious voice, clear emotion and energy stimulating. She is not as staid as one might expect a narrator to be for a collection of instructional essays"

ACX reviewer "PRK" Book: The Ultimate Guide To Kink

“The bright spot was the narration. Anneliese Rennie delivered a lively and interesting story that kept me listening from start to finish. I felt the whole time that she was talking to me not at me. Good job all around”

ACX reviewer "Paul" Book: Analyze People, proven techniques to analyze people

“The narrator excelled at reading character dialogue and voices.”

ACX reviewer "Marcus" Book: Triple Shot of Unnatural Nature

"Loving this series!"
