You know that feeling when you finish a great project? That mix of pride, relief, self-doubt, and excitement to share your creation with the world?
I’m honored to say that I’m feeling all the feels and more. This has been my biggest voiceover project yet, and I couldn’t be more proud of it. I’ve had the privilege over the past few months of telling a fascinating story.
Robert Sultan has written an epic history of a family in 20th-century China, and as I narrated the lives and loves of the Chen women, I learned volumes about that country as it navigated the shift from feudalism to Communism, and the acceptance of technology from the West.
Sultan’s straightforward narrative style conveys a world of complex characters and emotions with simple, clear verbiage. More than once, I had to stop recording to wipe away tears before I could start again. I highly recommend Slaughtering Girl to anyone who respects and enjoys literary fiction, history, and the drama of being human.
