I saw posts regarding who might do the narration if there was an audio version of My Cross To Bear but never saw the answer. May be I just missed it but here it is again if so.

Actor Will Patton

There are samples here that make it sound like a pretty good fit

That was my first question, who narrates? Thats pretty cool ,Will Patton.
I am not to familiar with audio books and who does the voice work.

It would be funny to hear people such as Jim Neighbors as Gomer Pyle,Struther Martin and others who have disctinct voices do some books. Joe Walsh could be a tough one though.

Why doesn't Gregory do it himself? Think he'll forget the words or something?

Maybe Dickey will do it.

I'm surprised this is a down load only audio book. I would assume given the older audience they would have run at least a few hundred of the book on CD.

I'm familiar with audio book recording and it is way harder than anyone can imagine. People make a lot of mistakes I think it's like 4 or 5 stops per page by the average person. Someone not trained in it like Gregg could do it but it would take longer so they hire people versed in it. A lot of Broadway actors record books as side gigs. Keith Richards read about 1 or 2 discs of his. Johnny Depp and an English actor read the rest and it was real good. A friend of mine recorded Bill Clinton reading his book My Life when it came out and he was a freak. Made like no mistakes and remembered everyone's name down to the janitor in the building. They guy has some sort of mega brain like him or not. The same producer recorded GW Bush and said he was a really friendly and fun guy. He took some managing like most people do in recording but over all was better than the average person.


Being so familiar with Gregg's voice, I think I'd rather hear him read it but if this is the only option, I'd give it a listen.

If you want to give audio books a try , 2 of my favorites are Bob Dylan Chronicles read by Sean Penn and Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson is probably one of the most popular audio books. Very funny.

the audio version is the only way Alan Woods will be able to "read" it

I was educated in Tennessee, where, in regards to public education, we say "thank God for South Carolina and Bama."

I've already finished it and passed it along to my Dad with the warning not to mess up the signature.
