"The connection between Stone and Jana is heart warming. This made me cry! Now the spy aspect was intense. I was on my seat and couldn’t put it down. Joe did a great job with changing voice with the characters." -- User review of "Protocol One: The Special Agent Jana Baker Spy-Thriller Series, Book 1 " (https://www.audible.com/pd/Protocol-One-Audiobook/B07BB14VZ7?qid=1560600785&sr=1-9&ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_9&pf_rd_p=) "In terms of effusive praise for the narrator: I just want him to know that I had auditioned 22 local actors in my region, and no voice jumped out at me. I had specific things in mind when looking for a voice. I have been in radio broadcasting for more than 40 years, and I knew what I was seeking. I knew immediately that his voice was the right one. This was a tremendous amount of work, and I appreciate not only the narrator, but also the ease with which this project moved throughout the entire production. With my radio experience, I know what goes into making ten minutes of recording work, much less eight hours' worth. (I do a two-hour weekly radio show.) I was impressed with every step of the way during this project. Perhaps the most difficult thing for me was what I called audio proofing--listening to the recording and carefully ensuring that the book made sense on an audio level as well as on a visual level. Thank you for an excellent experience. I would definitely recommend your services strongly and without hesitation to other authors." -- Correspondence from Wanda Adams Fischer on the narration and production of "Empty Seats" (https://www.audible.com/pd/Empty-Seats-Audiobook/B07K7RQH6Q?ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_1&pf_rd_p=e81b7c27-6880-467a-b5a7-13cef5d729fe&pf_rd_r=VE5VAPZJ6T5AHFZ6H29F&) "After listening to this book I will be a permanent fan of Joe Farinacci. He's not particularly varied in his voice performance but he's very comforting and easy to listen to. Very important Book for me." -- User review of "Summary: The iPhone Revolution: How Steve Jobs Changed the Way We Live" (http://www.audible.com/listener/APIBEH6CRU3YW?ref=a_pd_Bios-M_c15_rvlsnl_2&asin=B078NBZC76) "After much work with narrator Joe Farinacci (who did such a good job with Avoidant) the Amazon/Audible audiobook of Death by HR is finally for sale ..." -- Jeb Kinnison.
