For years, it has always been my particular joy to find an audio book that had been narrated by Frank Muller. I love the work of many narrators of books, but even after all this time, I still think, Frank Muller is my all-time favorite narrator.
I have been passionate about books and reading since I was old enough to read on my own, but truth be told, it really started earlier than that, while being read to before I could read books.
I have read quite a few books over my lifetime, and I still read quite a bit, but, honestly, my eyesight isn’t what it once was. For this reason, where I can, I have naturally gravitated toward audio books to give my eyes a much needed rest while still being able to continue my passion of reading.
Over the years, I have read, or rather listened to, various books narrated by Frank Muller by such writers as Stephen King, John Grisham, Tom Clancy, and Tim LaHaye. Every single book was a joy to read, or in this case to listen to.
Frank Muller added depth and dimension to each book. He seemed to really understand the writers and what they wanted in the reading. Frank Muller took great pains with detail, the voices and style of the characters, even across sets of books, such as Stephen King's Dark Tower series.
His tragic motorcycle accident robbed him from continuing his career as one of the all-time best narrators of audio books, robbed his family of husband and father, and robbed us, too, as listeners of any new narrations by this great narrator.
I was surprised by all the books and the number of years that Frank Muller had been narrating books by so many authors — from the Classics to modern authors. I found so many while I was searching Amazon and Google to find his Audio CD versions of books he had narrated. If you still have a audio cassette player/compact cassette player, there are even more to choose from.
When listening to Frank Muller narrate a book, I am of two minds about the reading; I vacillate between hating for the book to end and at the same time wanting to know how it ends! Quite a paradox! Yes, a lot of that is the writer's work, but it is also in a large part, I believe to the love, dedication and talent put into the narration of the various books.
Frank Muller, originally from the Netherlands, was a classically trained actor. His family emigrated to the United States when he was five years old. He was the eldest of five children in the family.
