Before I begin talking about the Wolfsong audio book, I have to confess I haven’t actually finished it yet. This is in no way a reflection of the audio. It is however a strong indication of how emotional this story gets me. I’m right up to where everything goes wrong, and frankly I’m just not ready to have my heart broken again. I just don’t want to put off talking about Kirt Graves narration, and I think I’ve listened to more than enough to form an informed opinion.
My opinion is, after adapting to Mr Graves style I decided I really liked him. It did take me some time to warm up to him though. I don’t know if it was because I’d just finished Carry the Ocean, but Kirt Graves different voices mostly blended together. Or, maybe it was more that they didn’t stand out, with only two exceptions. I really loved the voices for Gordo and for Kelly. Graves gave Gordo the rough brokenness necessary to picture his character, and he made me see Kelly with an individual authenticity I didn’t get when reading about him. In the book, Kelly’s gentler personality was overshadowed by the powerhouse characters that surround him. However, in the audio book Kirt Graves brought TJ’s amazing character to life. I loved his sarcasm and dry humor. I loved how quietly happy he seemed when he was giving everyone a hard time. He was just amazing. Kelly’s audio book is going to be awesome.
I know I have to finish the audio, and I will. I know if I can get through the sadness things will get better again. I want to listen to Kirt Graves read me Ox and Joe falling in love. I also intend to finish this audio book before Ravensong comes out, because again Gordo’s voice was amazing!
