“If this were just an audiobook about the evolution of the play CHICAGO, it would be engaging, but with Joel Froomkin's narration, it is absolutely delightful. Froomkin's performance is a marvel, making the politicians, the "dolls," and the smoke-filled rooms of the notorious city sizzle with decadence… Through quotations, anecdotes, and bits from the plays and musicals discussed, Froomkin's vocal dexterity and impressive range of accents provide wonderful listening.”
Audiofile Magazine (All That Jazz, The Life and Times of the Musical ‘Chicago’)
"There's not an accent or personality that narrator Joel Froomkin doesn't deliver with zest in this hilarious romp...each dynamically presented, along with laughable one-liners, by Froomkin. His clear descriptions help listeners imagine each situation, no matter how implausible...Audio enhances this delicious, quirky story and adds to the fun."
Audiofile Magazine (The Gelatin Coast)
"Narrator Joel Froomkin matches the author character for character during hilarious interludes involving house cats that won't be captured for travel, a neighbor who grows hashish in Terry's garden, and villagers who delight in a film crew come to town to shoot a movie. Froomkin's capacity to deliver male and female voices is impressive, as is his fine range of both British and Spanish accents. His pacing, especially when Terry ponders each twist that fate hurls at him, is spot-on."

There isn't an accent or a personality type--no matter how quirky--that Joel Froomkin doesn't nail in this third John Pickett mystery. Pickett is called to Scotland to investigate the mysterious return of the Kirkbrides' prodigal daughter. Froomkin turns up the heat when Pickett checks into a hotel and learns that Mrs. Pickett is in residence. Listeners will chuckle to learn it's really Lady Julia Fieldhurst--who has previously been helped by Pickett and who is now trying to hide her identity. As Fieldhurst, Froomkin sounds warm yet upper class while Pickett's humbler status is apparent. Froomkin's Scottish accents are strong yet understandable when the pair investigate whether Miss Kirkbride is an imposter. An added treat is the reappearance of Pickett's flamboyant benefactor, Magistrate Colquhoun, one of Froomkin's most exuberant creations.
Audiofile Magazine (Family Plot)
“Narrator Joel Froomkin expertly transports listeners to Regency London and Yorkshire in this romantic mystery. Froomkin inhabits Pickett, who's wise beyond his years, as well as kind and determined. He's fully believable, as is the gutsy, resourceful Fieldhurst, who assists him. Vivid descriptions of Yorkshire and its inhabitants are skillfully portrayed.”

"Narrator Joel Froomkin delightfully brings the Hatter, other familiar characters, and new Wonderland landscapes to life in a story that sends Alice's younger brother, Henry, now a teenager, back through the looking-glass. Froomkin's character voices are perfectly tuned, meshing easily with the countless portrayals of the same characters that audiences have enjoyed for more than a 150 years."
Audiofile Magazine (Mad About The Hatter)
“Joel Froomkin is an exceptional narrator for this eerie tale of a decaying house and a boy abandoned to the care of his housekeeper. Froomkin moves deftly between the older housekeeper, Ruth, and 9-year-old Samuel…. They are equally believable, and their credibility increases the intensity of this mystery… Listeners will hang on every word through the explosive ending. Froomkin takes us on a wild journey, and we love every second.”
Audiofile Magazine (The Boy at the Keyhole)
"I firmly believe that [Froomkin's] incredible performance had a significant impact on my enjoyment of the story. The range of voices, consistency, and quality were second to none, and each one was easy to differentiate from beginning to end. Additionally, I found his range beyond compare, and haven’t come across many narrators who could perform so many different characters so effectively, and with the ability to make me believe in the characters and draw me into the regency period for perhaps the first time.”
