As for the large cast, only three or four spoke with clarity and conviction --in particular, the lead, George ... , as Prospero, he being a longtime Shakespearean buff who knows how to speak the words majestically. He needed to teach and coach the rest of the cast members, who clearly were not comfortable with the script and rushed words.

Dear George:

This is just a quick note of thanks for your contribution to the fifth edition of my book,
"The Art of Voice Acting."
Your reading of the H.G. Wells tale "The Time Machine" is an excellent example of how an audio book narrator can literally breathe life into a story. Your story-telling style, your ability to understand the drama of the words and your talent for creating "Theater of the Mind" all go toward making your section of the chapter on Audio Books an outstanding contribution to my book as a whole, and a useful tool from which others can learn.

Thank you again for your contribution.

I wish you much success with your audio book work.

Sincerely,

James R. Alburger
