Great

Very interesting to hear how Juliet Stevenson approaches the task of narration, especially how she builds character and how she deals with longer, complex narrative passages. The interview reveals just how exacting the process is to create a successful end result. The consummate artist, in whatever field she or he works - theatre, music, the pictorial arts etc. - makes it look effortless, which belies the hard work, preparation and experience that goes before. Juliet Stevenson is exceptional, both in her acting and in her work with the spoken word.

Juliet Stevenson-Simply the best!

Such a delight to listen to Juliet speak of her own career as a narrator.
i think i could listen to her read the phone book.
What a surprise to hear her nominate her favourite book of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell.
Ive listened to it seveeal times, my own favourite of over 150 audiobooks ive purchased from Audible.

Truly Fascinating

it was so nice to hear how one of our actors put together and audible book and takes so much time in processing the work so that the finished article sound completely flawless. After this interview I have a long list of books to look for on Audible. I also have to look out for her favourite narrator you will have to find it out yourself in the interview.

Enjoyed hearing about her process.

This was an interesting insight into an audiobook narrator‘s process. I enjoyed hearing about the fact that she hadn’t had a university education, and was enjoying discovering literature through being an audiobook narrator.

love her!

I loved hearing one of my favorite visual and voice actors speak of reading and performing. I really appreciated her description of letting the stories speak for themselves and not let her perception color the performance or the writers intention of the story or characters. Love her so much! I could listen to her read for hours and hours and never get tired!

Free Interview with Fascinating Actor

This was one of the most valuable free listens I've stumbled across on Audible. I'd known Juliet Stevenson was a wonderfully talented actor of both screen and narration, but I didn't expect to discover her to be such an all-around gem of a person. And best of all, because the interviewer asks Stevenson so many questions about her own favorite audiobooks, I got lots of ideas about interesting new (to me) audiobooks to listen to, both narrated by her (Apple Tree Yard) and narrated by others (Alan Bennett's plays and stories).

Did anyone else who listened to this interview catch that Stevenson says she has recorded ALL of Jane Austen? That means that she's narrated Pride and Prejudice, but then where is it on Audible? Curious.

The other side of the mic

I am a big fan of Juliet Stevenson's performances. It was interesting to learn how she approaches reading the wonderful novels she has helped make into audiobooks. This interview was an excellent listen.
