They narrate great tales with quality acting. It’s so believable that I feel as if I am an observer standing in the actual story. One reason I get pulled in, is that British actors may get more technique training and from what I see use their voices and bodies more effectively than their Yankee peers.
As the year winds down I go through my book shelves and make two piles; books that I’ve bought, read and won’t read again that I will give away, and those to sell to a used bookstore. My intention is to make room for more books.
