(This quote comes after reviews of recordings by William Hurt and Meryl Streep) "But give me any day the unembellished vocal chords of someone like Cindy Hardin. The pure spring-fed voice of this 42 year old part-time actress and full-time mom from Portsmouth, R.I., is the best argument I know for simply putting great books in the hands of great readers and getting out of the way. Hers is a trained voice, but it is also something more basic. It is the voice of a mother reading to her children. Hardin does a number of unabridged readings of children's classics but the one I like the most is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. from The Los Angeles Times Book Review November 26, 1989

"Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale (KIDNAPPED) relating the exploits of David Balfour on the Scottish highlands is made vivid in this unabridged reading." from Booklist magazine July 15, 1980
"Killavey reads with steady objectivity. His voice changes only for different characters, yet infuses significance into every sentence. A Provocative recording." from BOOKLIST Magazine May 15, 1981
"All of Stevenson's marvelous buccaneer vernacular is here - spoken clearly and without hesitation. Narrator Chatty is not only elequent but talented as well. Very believably he assumes all the voices which run from the gutteral noises of pirate Morgan to the upper-class tones of Doctory Livesey. All the vividly captured scenes are both a tribute to the incredibly realistic descriptions found in this tale and to its professional narration in this recording." review of TREASURE ISLAND in the American Library Associaton BOOKLIST November 15, 1980
"This audio collection of stories from the Sioux (WIGWAM EVENINGS) begins with a tribe's winter camp and a wise teacher telling stories to the children in front of the fire. Hardin provides the setting and transition and Covell tells the stories. Covell is a graceful, deep-voiced storyteller and his inflections give full color." from KLIATT magazine July, 1995
"In these superb readings (from THE JUNGLE BOOK), one quickly becomes involved with the animals witty conversations. Without any sound effects, the narrators quickly catch the listener's interest and curiosity, as the land and people so loved by Kipling come alive and as a respect for India, its people, and their customs is generated." from BOOKLIST magazine September, 1981
"Novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne has masterfully and imaginatively retold two Greek myths ("The Minotaur" and " Circe's Palace") with an involving simplicity and clarity. Reader Walter Zimmerman presents the stories in a no-nonsense manner without sound effects, music, or other embellishments. While Zimmerman creates a variety of voices, the greater part of each work involves a descriptive text, and there are no textual challenges that he does not meet and overcome. The delivery is well-paced and never does the narrator's voice drone on. Hawthorne's colorful language and fantasy atmosphere move both tales along and help to create the mood." review from BOOKLIST magazine November, 1981
