About this podfic: The first time I read this story, I stayed up all night finishing it. It was just such a vivid and interesting portrayal of prison. It was claustrophobic and intense and awful and totally wonderful. Somebody else had already asked to podfic it, but I told [personal profile] amproof that if there was ever a way I could get to do any part of it, I would jump at the chance. And to my delight, a couple weeks later she emailed saying she was thinking of doing it as a multi-reader podfic, and she wanted me as Kris. Which is my favorite of the POVs, because that's where all the really serious prison stuff happens. So I was very pleased.

Three voices, four hours, one story. Yay!

I just finished rereading Book 1 over the last 2 days in anticipation for this audio. Understandably I wanted to check out part 4 first because that is the scene that is imprinted on my brain.
I don't think I can express adequately how wonderfully you and shiningartifact have captured this. I listened last night and could not get to sleep after. It was intense, heart breaking and searingly hot but so tender. Really even though it is one of the sexiest descriptions in the fandom what really grips and holds my attention is the overwhelming emotion. It wasn't the lust it was the love.
You both tackled what must have seemed a tough task with admirable panache but such tenderness too and love of the characters and the author's brilliant words.

Well, thank you! Obviously, the hardest scene in that part was all [livejournal.com profile] shiningartifact, and I did not envy her having to tackle that, but I thought she did a really excellent job with it.

But intense and emotional, that's how the story felt for me, and that is something I was really hoping the reading would be able to capture. So I am incredibly pleased that that succeeded for you.

This is the first comment we've gotten from someone who has listened, and I am so glad to hear that it was a good listening experience!
