"I have listened, couldn't stop listening actually, to everything you recorded, and I can tell you in all honesty that your narration of "Missygirl the Calico Cat Book 1 & Book 2 Combined" is simply brilliant. I congratulate you on the fine job you have done here. If I had interviewed a thousand-million people, I don't believe I would have found anyone who could have done this better. It really shows that you put your heart into every word! The quality of the diction and the tonal shifts are most excellent! Your application of the proper emphasis at the proper time (or not) is positively spell-binding. Every single expressive intonation is simply splendid! You have brought "Missygirl the Calico Cat" to life in ways that few others are capable of doing! I thank you. Neil E. Clement, Author (May, 2014)Neil E. Clement - Author - "Missygirl the Calico Cat Book 1 & Book 2 Combined

Thank you so much, Marie, for bringing so much warmth to the recording. With my deep appreciation." BernardBernard Levine - Author - "The Secrets of the Jewish World"
"The narrator, Marie Hoffman, did a great job reading this book. The voice was soothing, and her multiple voices were spot on. I have read this book in the Kindle version. Listening to it again on audio is like hearing a whole new book. The narration breathes life into this tale as all audiobooks do...This would be a great book to listen to on your way to work or even while you are out for a walk! Great job!"Terri B. - ACX reviewer of "Tea Can Wait"
