Like a good friend

BJ is always working to improve his craft, from commentary on how these some of these old works can relate to our time, to correct French pronunciation- a challenge! Thank you for all the hard work, BJ. You choose just what I like to read, and I appreciate the treasure trove of titles on the website to fill the in gaps.

BJ Harrison

“He was in a manner, a literary ghoul, feeding in the charnel house of decayed literature” – Washington Irving

Meet the Host

“One of the best readers (esp for the classics)”

B.J. Harrison is one of the best readers I’ve heard. Able to do many voices compellingly, believably, and back-to-back. Even my kids were stunned when they realized it was all one reader.

“Just What the Doctor Ordered”

I love P. G. Wodehouse’s writing so much that I didn’t think it possible to enjoy it more. B.J. Harrison proved me wrong.

It must be difficult to narrate the grating accents of Mrs Bennet but this narrator does so without causing me to flinch ….very well done !!
