Back in late July, I blogged about visiting the recording session for the Leviathan audio book. I got to meet and hang out with Alan Cumming, the voice talent for the audio version, and listen to him work.
And now you do too!
Leviathan has two main characters, one Scottish and one Austrian, which makes Alan perfect for the role. He’s Scottish himself, so no problem there, and he gained fame in the US for his role in Cabaret, so we knew he could do Germanic accents as well. He’s a very dramatic reader, especially in the giant battle scene I heard, so all the explosions and derring-do that are my forte are going to sound awesome. All in all, it was a for-the-win casting choice. Thanks to everyone at S&S Audio for being so frickin’ smart.
Anyway, here’s a sneak preview:
|Listen to Chapter One of the audio!|
|Afterword, read by me (Many spoilers!)|
