|The Clone Betrayal from Graphic Audio|
First, allow me to say that even if had I not had a thing for Ava Gardner when I created the character, I would have been head-over-heels in love with her by the time I finished listening to the Graphic Audio version of The Clone Betrayal.
The actor they hired to play Ava has a voice that puts the goddess back in sex goddess. I have been through the book several times now.
The actors at Graphic Audio have nailed many characters in the past. Ken Jackson, the actor/director who plays Harris, has changed the way I hear these books in my head. Elliot Dash, who plays Ray Freeman, owns the role. If you listen to The Clone Alliance and The Clone Elite, you will hear Mark Phillips portrayed exactly as I envisioned him.
Sample of The Clone Betrayal
Graphic Audio continues its winning streak with Betrayal. The actors playing Thomer and Warshaw Doctorow, and Fahey are all amazing. The man playing Thomer captures the lack of confidence brought on by his Falzoud addiction. The guys playing Doctorow and Warshaw are masters of arrogance. I don't think I hated Warshaw all that much when I wrote the book, but I most surely hated him by the time I finished listening to him in the book.
Think about that! This actor elicited emotions out of me that may not have been there during the writing!
And then there is they guy who plays Perry Fahey! This guy has it all, the calculating voice, the slightly feminine demeanor, the antagonism, the arrogance, the fear. He is so snide that you hate him. I hated Fahey more after listening to the book than I did after writing it, and I have ALWAYS hated Perry Fahey.
Some day maybe we can discuss how Fahey got his name.
Even after all of that talent that I have mentioned, it is Colleen Delany, playing Ava, who steals the show. (The only reason I know she played Ava is that there are only two female actors in the cast.)
And there is more to come.
Graphic Audio has posted an audio sample of The Clone Empire. The book comes out next month.
Graphic Audio has published one audio version of a Harris book every month now since July... and these books keep getting better with each new release.
I have not heard The Clone Empire yet. I don't have any say in these projects, and frankly I like it that way. I am that pleased with everything that Graphic Audio has done.
At the rate of one per month, we'll be hearing Redemption in January and Sedition in February.
Frankly, I can't wait to hear what they do with Sunny and Franklin.
