Audible Customer Praise for " The Billionaire from Seattle" "A fun and invigorating performance by Lou Petrella. Lou Petrella has a voice with a warm, inviting tone that's easy to listen to for hours. He has a nice, clear reading style, and concise vocal inflections for each character of the book. There's also an air of mystery to his reading style that makes you want to keep listening. You can tell Mr. Petrella is enjoying the story as much as the listener. There is a real sense of fun in his performance. I'm looking forward to hearing more audiobooks by Lou Petrella. "Gripping from the get go.... This story draws you in immediately. Petrella 'plays' the characters perfectly as he brings them to life leading you to imagine the scenes as though you were actually there." "Believable Narration. This was my first audio book and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The story was engaging but the narration really brought it to life for me. It was easy to follow with excellent pronunciation and differential expression with each character. I don't have time to read books so this has been a pleasant experience on my road travels." "Captivating. The narration by Lou Petrella was fantastic and kept me interested in seeing how the story played out. His voice was perfect for this book and I look forward to hearing more from him. He was so articulate in his voice that I felt as if I could see each scene as he narrated the story. I am hoping there will be a sequel to this book to find out how Charity's life goes being the wife of a Billionaire.
