Voices in the dark

Robin is kicking off another listening session at her place. Here is my contribution - again from The Woman in the Wall. (I'd call it a work in progress, except I haven't made any over the past couple of weeks. Work, work, work, sigh).

Wow, great voice and awesome passage. Thanks for sharing.

The phrase 'eat your own words' typically has a negative connotation, but I'm going to invoke it here in a positive incarnation — these are delicious words and you read them with relish. The image of the two characters slumped in front of the TV is great.

I agree, your voice is so soothing it pulls you in to this mildewy domestic situation. I see it perfectly. The poor wee bairn has joined the two in the room now … I have a feeling nothing will be the same.

A piece that creates an undeniable mood, and you read it appropriately. I am amazed at how well everyone reads. I don't know why it amazes me, but this whole group has really wonderful, expressive voices. Yours is no exception.

cuts off abruptly, otherwise super!

it IS a WIP, no matter how long between additions/edits/deletions....

freddie said...

Very nice! Love your voice.

Conduit said...

Strangely, I think you sound much more Scottish in this one.

Robin S. said...

I agree with you, Conduit.

McK, you sound more like what I thought you'd sound like - I love it!

Wonderful beautiful voice - and I love that news tidbit about the skelelton, tucked in there in the end of the passage...

It's how she says "house". Total Scot on that vowel. By the way, I renamed your link to Black Watch Sheila a couple weeks ago. If you'd like a different clan pattern, let me know.

Great. I'm a sucker for the Scots accent, though yours doesn't have as much "burr" has some. Perhaps the Aussies have corrupted your speech?

Lovely story; I could go on listening.

*sigh* Please may I have some more? You really should be doing your own audiobooks. Great stuff here, McK!

McKoala said...

Thank you all! This was fun.

Paca, there's a moose loose aboot this hoose.

You do sound different on this one - I'm not sure quite what it is.

I agree with pjd - I shouldn't be amazed but I am, everyone has such great individualistic voices!
