AUDIBLE APPROVED NARRATOR/PRODUCER. "I simply could not imagine doing the project with anyone else. Aside from his obvious vocal talent, intelligence, and subtlety, Fred possesses the ability to deliver the content in a truly fresh, unique way. He narrates in a way you might not have thought of - but it is invariably SO much better than anything you'd imagined, it suddenly becomes the ONLY way you want it to sound." -- Maria Kuroshchepova, TSK Group "Wow, it is such a pleasure to listen to you. I commend you on doing a spectacular narration!... Your range and effects are wonderful to listen to (by far the best narration we've had)." - Thorstruck Press, publisher of "London Warriors" "You really brought the characters to life – it really was amazing.... The voices were perfect and the chapters seemed to burst with life. I couldn't imagine it sounding any better.... The book really comes to life and even though I wrote it I got caught up in the story as if coming across it for the first time." - Tim O'Rourke, best-selling author of "The Doorways Saga" "Your talent for voices just astounds me! I am truly blessed that I found you.... You're awesome!" - Margaret Taylor, author of the "To Light the Dragon's Fire" "Fred Wolinsky really outdid himself....He had to put forth a huge range of characters to make this book work. His accents were great and his male vs. female voices were distinct. He also had to do a range of ages from little kids to the elderly. Also, several of the stories were full of emotion and Fred's performance really imbued the written word with those emotions. An excellence performance!" - Susan Voss, Dab of Darkness "Your talents are more than I could have hoped for. You've captured not only the essence of the characters but the heart of the story itself." - Joe Broadmeadow, author of "Saving the Last Dragon" "Fred Wolinsky...was able to inject real emotion into his performance, truly making the sinister characters sound as evil as he could... while simultaneously keeping Jack Black sounding young and innocent." - Paul (The Audiobook Reviewer) "Loved the recording- thank you for a terrific job. It goes from scary to funny to creepy to heartwarming, and you mastered it all!" - Dale T. Phillips, author of "Fables and Fantasies" "You have a smooth style that pulls the listener in.... It was a pleasure working with a professional like you.... voices sounded perfect." - Cleve Sylcox, author of "The Package" "Fred did an absolute knock out job on this. He went above and beyond the call of duty." - Michelle Isenhoff, author of "The Candle Star" "Mr. Wolinsky's narration really brings the story to life. It made me feel like I was there with the characters as the story unfolded." - This Kid Reviews Books for "The Candle Star" * Selected "Best Actor in the Hudson Valley, 1994," by the Times Herald Record for the role of Alan Turing in "Breaking the Code" at Performing Arts of Woodstock, Woodstock, NY
