Hi, there! It’s been a little while since this was cataloged on Librivox, but I was saving it for spring to post on booklearned. The project is Librivox’s first Dramatic Reading Scene & Story Collection (Vol. 001). It isn’t too often that I get to take part in a dramatic project, so this was a fun opportunity to play a main role in one of the sections. It was also enjoyable to discover a new author I hadn’t known too well of before this. The short story I participated in was “The Garden Party,” by Katherine Mansfield. I feel this is one of my favorite audio recordings to date, because I really sat down to analyze the story, the characters, their background, and how I interpreted the ending. It really reminded me a lot of the book of Ecclesiastes, and it was from this viewpoint that I acted the part.
“It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of every man; the living should take this to heart.” ~Ecclesiastes 7:2
Unfortunately, I began to experience audio technical difficulties around the time I recorded this, so the background is not the best. I’ve also had to set aside my recording for lack of a place to record. So frustrating! But I know that God will provide when He sees fit.
I hope you enjoy it and many other fine stories in the collection, including several L. M. Montgomery stories, Sherlock Holmes, and children’s stories.
