I owe so much to Frank Muller

Simply put, Muller got me into audiobooks.

A friend gave me Stephen King's The Dark Tower series - which I tried to get through in print when it first came out. It just didn't click for me. King is hit and miss for me, personally... but Muller's reading made it magic. I work at home as an illustrator so watching TV is distracting. Audiobooks are the perfect medium. Sadly, I assumed all books were read this well and I spent time and money going through book after book looking for that special magic that only Muller had. Finally I broke down and purchased books that Frank read - even if the content wasn't to my liking. Sure enough he made it accessible and brilliant. I will miss Muller's work and his dedication to the craft and the medium.

Rest in Peace Frank Muller.

So sad he is gone

Frank Muller was one of the most versatile narrators of all time. I am convinced he could read the phone book and make it interesting enough that I would have been compelled to listen. What a shame that his life was cut short, but how grateful we should all be that he left such a legacy of narrated books. RIP, Frank. We miss you.

A huge loss to audible listeners

Thank you Audiobook for this wonderful tribute to Frank Muller, one of the best narrators of our time. His narration is unparalleled and he brought Dickens's novels to life for me. The audiobook community has lost 2 giants recently: Frank Muller and Kate Fleming (a.k.a. Anna Fields). In their loss, I feel I lost friends as they had been regular companions on my daily commute. When you start searching for audiobooks by narrators versus authors, you know you are dealing with someone special, a unique voice, a captivating delivery and a captivating narration. RIP Frank Muller. You will be missed dearly.

Lacking Titles (but Free)

Thanks for the free content, Audible! I had never heard of Frank Muller or his untimely demise before, and now am curious to investigate the many books he narrated. But grateful as I am for the introduction to this obviously multitalented performer, I was frustrated by the absence of announced titles (or even a table of contents in the description) for these excerpts. If not for helpful reviewer Dan from Fairfield, Iowa (see above), I would have been completely lost. Thank you, Dan!!

The best to do it

Frank Muller is the greatest narrator of all time. He is the ONLY narrator that I search for by name with Audible. I have bought audiobooks from authors I was unsure about, just to hear him dive into another narrative.

Muller's ability to embody characters, interpret the writer's voice, and always find the perfect delivery for each character, is what made him one of the most sought after narrators in the business. Put simply, he breathes life into the stories he reads, so we can immerse ourselves in literature.

Lastly, Muller has one of those golden voices that a small few are lucky enough to have. It's rich with tone, inflection, and just the right amount of gravel.

Frank Muller's passing is a true tragedy. The literary world lost an invaluable treasure Muller. I'm just glad he left us with such an outstanding and extensive body of work to remember him by.

Franks voice is like hearing an old friend

One of the first books I listened to was in 1981. Frank's voice has been telling me stories for hundreds of hours ever since then. I look forward to hundreds of hours more.
Thank you for all of the stories.

He will be and is missed!

I first heard Frank Muller in the Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. I was upset when the last books in the series changed narrator. Then I discovered why and was saddened by the loss.

Nice sampling of his work

I didn't know him by name, and only discovered Frank Muller after finding a reference to him in an article about RC Bray.

Muller made his narrations come alive and I look forward to hearing some of the classics in the future. Meanwhile this 15 minute sampling is a great taste for anyone wondering if audio books are a great alternative to reading them themselves.

What an absolute treat for the ears. What a loss.

If you could sum up Frank Muller in three words, what would they be?

Unique. Talented. Missed.

What other book might you compare Frank Muller to, and why?

Nothing can ever compare to Frank.

What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He's got to have been one, if not the, best narrators ever.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and this easily done due to it being only 15 minutes long.

Any additional comments?

Sadly Frank passed away in 2008, after being very unwell since a motorbike accident in 2001, and not only left behind a heartbroken family, but droves of saddened fans, and a huge talent that can never be equalled. Listen to this and you will be convinced you are listening to numerous narrators. A nice gesture from audible to make this available free, so thanks for that.

My favourite narrator

My favourite narrator. RIP Frank Muller. Great voice, easy to listen to. Loved him reading John Grisham's The Rainmaker.
