“I’m adding DJ Holte to my list of favorite narrators”

Holy frijoles! Check out this rave review of the latest audiobook I narrated, Harmless (written by Ernie Lindsey). The review is by Judy Purdee, and appears on her review blog, Love2Listen.

My Thoughts:
I totally enjoyed Harmless! Actually enjoyed doesn’t really express how I experienced it.  I couldn’t put it down.  My plans to go out shopping or visit a relative flew out the window as soon as I started listening.  I took the whole day and listened from beginning to end. I love mysteries that include humor.  This book has all the required elements of that kind of mystery – laugh out loud moments, plot twists and surprises, and an unconventional love story.   Steve Pendragon appears at first to be a clueless, self-centered man.  The people he chooses to be his friends find him acutely annoying.  He can’t seem to get to the point of a story without going off the subject.   I found him fascinating.  I liked the way he observed the world and how he found character attributes in other people that he identified with.  He is a bit psychic and describes himself as “operating on a higher plane.”  He is obsessed with the post office and mail delivery.    

What I liked most about Harmless was the performance of the narrator, DJ Holte.  It was as if I had Steve following me around telling me his story and not minding when I laughed at him.  That’s an experience I would never get from the print version.  From the first word of the audio sample, I knew this was a voice I would enjoy.  I’m adding DJ Holte to my list of favorite narrators and hope to hear more of his work.

Author Ernie Lindsey has crafted a story that is funny and entertaining with a main character you will grow to love.  I highly recommend the audio version of Harmless and give it 5 stars all around.
