This concise volume contains a wealth of information for anyone seeking to begin a career as an audiobook narrator, plus tips and tricks for the seasoned pro. Ms. Barbara Rosenblat IS audiobooks, and as one of the earliest exponents and developers of the craft, she knows her industry inside and out. The wealth of practical, user friendly information she shares in this book, reads like a conversation with a very dear and caring expert friend. Not a word is wasted, nor any advice superfluous.It reads like the thoughtful answers to questions she has been asked by would be audiobook narrators, and those further along in their careers, over the years.The book provides a clear road map and "tool kit "answering all the questions you might ask, if you were in her company. She writes with clarity, wisdom and humor.I wish I had, had this book at the start of my career. It would have saved me a great deal of time,money and angst. It is extremely well written, engaging and entertaining,whilst also being extremely practical and informative. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic advice from a total too 6 mai 2014

I loved this book. I love that there was very practical, non gimmicky advice from a woman who is a total pro as an actor herself. Unlike other material on the biz of voice over she is very specific in her advice. It all comes from her own very successful career in this field. I highly recommend it. Oh and it's not just for beginners. It covers a range of info for all levels of voice actors.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Information on the art of recording audio books by the best in the business 21 juillet 2014
Par Claude D. - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The first time I listened to a book narrated by Ms. Rosenblat I was immediately thrilled by her mesmerizing voice and magnificent rendition of the characters she portrayed. I of course fell in love with her artistry, professionalism and uniqueness. Ms. Rosenblat has been my companion for years as she accompanied me every day from the depths of my car stereo projecting different accents and dialects of the personalities from the stories.
Is there anything better than a good book? Yes. Ms. Rosenblat narrating and making the book even better! I got to the point that I would choose a book not because of the author, but because Ms. Rosenblat was narrating! And imagine my joy when I was watching an episode of Law and Order, SVU, and realized who the brilliant actress was by that unique voice! I could now watch her as well!

I am a linguist and author. My books always have an element of music in them because I grew up surrounded by great voices. I’m pretty savvy when it comes to vocal sounds, languages and accents, so Ms. Rosenblat’s body of work is an even greater treat! Thank you for the special moments you have gifted us through the years, and thank you for this book that gives us so much insight into your craft.
We, your fans, will continue to cherish your work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A joy to read. Entertaining and Informative 24 février 2015
Par Sean A. Daeley - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is highly informative and entertaining. I read it in one sitting. Barbara's writing style is charming and engaging; I wouldn't be surprised if she talks exactly the same way as she writes.
You might be disappointed if you're looking for a guideline on becoming a one-stop-shop for producing audiobooks on say Audible; Barbara is an actor first, and has no illusions about her abilities on the technical side of recording audiobooks. It's hard to blame her, though, since she has been doing this long before the birth of the home studio, and is often working with a director and audio engineer, which allows her to do what she does best: act, and tell a damn good story!
What this book DOES offer is a number of great tips on learning about the audiobook industry, prepping a book, developing and maintaining characters, as well as strategies to improve your workflow, and even your vocal health.
If you have even a remote interest in recording audiobooks, you'd be a fool not to get this book.
