Literary Fictions Classics Banner 2016

  • The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma, read by Chukwudi Iwuji

dogearedcopy’s full review

“The narrator did the book justice (Nigerian accent helped!) and I could clearly hear both the sadness and the joy in his voice. He managed distinctive characters without using lazy falsettos for the women and farcical voices for men.” ~ The Sleepless Reader

The Sleepless Reader’s full review

  • Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson, read by Kieron Elliot

“The story is everything you would want and expect for a tale of swashbuckling heroism, clever ruses, and breath taking scenes of danger! Kieron Elliot is a “Scottish actor, host, voice over artist and comedian” who narrated this classic tale, slowly and carefully; and with a full-on Scottish brogue. Also, in a vaguely related note, Do you think he looks like a young Sean Connery?” ~ dog eared copy
