Reviews: 5 Stars- Just my kind of listen. The story was exceeded by the performance. I did not want it to end.– Audible Listener
Michael Kirby brings both exceptional talent and professionalism to the production of the Ocean of Storms audiobooks. The demands of this series are prodigious. However, Kirby illuminates an incredibly diverse set of characters from Texan Marines to Bedouin sheiks with great skill. He accurately paints everyone, from the fumbling malapropisms of the ship’s steward to the excruciatingly technical observations of the ship’s doctor. Authors are protective of their characters, but Kirby adds to them. He lifts them from the page, adding color and dimensions to the text. Michael Kirby has worked through the pages of this series with great care, precision, independent research, and always on schedule.-Joe Piteo, Author
