I wasn’t going to post today and have been working on my crafty projects, but I’m doing my happy dance and
I’m so excited,
I just can’t hide it,
I’m about to lose control and I think I like it
As most of you know already, Richard will be recording the audio edition of Hamlet, a Novel by A.J. Hartley and David Hewson.
Now, you may be sitting there thinking: OK, good news that Richard is doing something new, but an audiobook? really? what’s the big deal?
If you are one of those people, that tells me you haven’t actually listened to any of Richard’s audiobook because holy ear orgasm!
Even though Armitage plays a plethora of characters, male, female, old and young, you get lost in the moment and forget it’s one person stuck behind a microphone.
I’m not too bothered (yet) what Richard is recording, be it Hamlet or Jill’s Gymkhana but I have a feeling Shakespeare is going to be our homeboy from now on 😉
I’ll just say that mid-way I was sobbing when something particularly horrible happened to the protagonist, but then at times I’d laugh out loud too, just to balance things out.
The CD’s (12 hours of them) are hard to come by, but RANet is running a competition where you have the chance to get your hands on the whole set (thanks Miriam!).
Check out the first few chapters and even more audiobook extracts at RAnet.
Anyway, bring it on Armitage!
