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.

~ H Ordover review  for The Count of Monte Cristo 3/8/16

“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. His narration and voice acting increased my enjoyment of of these stories exponentially. He brought them to life in such an engaging and realistic way I that felt as if I were a fly on the wall of Bertie Wooster’s flat.

– Katharine Review for The P.G. Wodehouse Collection 8/27/14

“excellent narration”

I have read and listened to Pride and Prejudice so many times that I have memorized most of the dialogue. This narration is by far the best I have ever heard! 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 !!
