Reviews

Two time winner of the Audie Award and Seven Time AudioFile Earphone Award Winner


hornsHorns by Joe Hill

* AudioFile Earphone Award

"Fred Berman's nuanced narration creates the feeling that there is nothing all that's unusual that is happening to Ig. Berman constructs an atmosphere in which intense interaction between the characters and the depth of their emotions accentuate the misunderstandings that underlie the intricate plot.  He manages the pace to enhance the suspense, establish quiet moments of introspection, and in sum, make this a hard book to turn off."

 

 

brooklynbridgeBrooklyn Bridge by Karen Hesse

* AudioFile Earphone Award

“The production is greatly enhanced by the expert narration of Fred Berman, whose strong Brooklyn accent and use of Yiddish inflection take listeners directly to the time and place. Berman beautifully captures 14-year-old Joseph's electric excitement to participate in the life of the city around him.  A great choice for family listening."

 

 

paintedbirdThe Painted Bird by Jerzy Kosinski

* Audiofile Earphone Award

"In a soft Polish accent, narrator Fred Berman spins this tale with a storyteller's intimacy, uninterrupted by character voicings.  The production poihnantly and beautifully captures Kosinski's dark, melancholy landscape."

 

 

bignateBig Nate: In A Class By Himself by Lincoln Peirce

"Fred Berman meets the challenge of bringing such a varied and well-known cast to life.  He is an effervescent Nate - excitable, eager, always optimistic - and he tailors his intonation and pace to each of the other characters as well.  The Wimpy Kid has company!"
