"Gary Tiedemann brims with delight as he zips young listeners around...like an animated Saturday-morning cartoon, Tiedemann's energetic and precise narration flawlessly embodies the story's Latinx-anthropomorphic cast."
- Audiofile Magazine October 2020 (Vamos! Let's Go Eat by Raúl The Third)* **
*Earphones Award Winner **Audiofile Magazine Best Audiobooks of 2020
"Narrator Gary Tiedemann, a gifted bilingual voice actor, delivers the Spanish phrases with melodic grace and approaches the entire, psychologically astute tale with empathy. His voice is careful and compassionate as it describes Angel’s determination to be a good mother, Yolanda’s coming to terms with her fate, and Amadeo stumbling toward a form of resurrection and redemption. This is a gently funny, affecting novel, beautifully narrated."
- Katherine A. Powers - Washington Post (The Five Wounds by Kirstin Valdez Quade)*

A.C. - Audible
“I had never listened to Gary Tiedemann. He was fantastic. Perhaps the best I have heard on Audible.” R.W.F. -Audible
The performance was spot on. I absolutely love Gary Tiedemann's narration of all characters, and how quickly he could adapt.
Tia S. - Audible
“Your range is INCREDIBLE. I really think you are the best narrator I have ever listened to. I have purchased about 250 books from Audible, and always look for who is doing the narrating. The narrator can make such a difference. You are by far the best one I've heard, and that is saying a lot.”
W.F. - Audible
“The narrator provides a good range of character voices for the men, women, and children and gets the listener emotionally invested in each of the characters. The way he delivers the action sequence is truly a treat for the listener. I really enjoyed his voice acting on the series.”
“I'd put the narration in my top 5 list of narrators”
G.S. - Audible
“Gary Tiedemann's narration was perfection. To me the mark of a great narrator is to fade into the background and bring the characters out so you can get to know them and he did that perfectly.”
S.M. - Audible
“Gary is wonderful!!!! One forgets this is just one person!!!!”
A.L. - Audible
“I think you may just get that I really enjoyed Tiedemann's work. He really nails this performance, and brings the characters to life in a way that you don't generally get to see. I would say that he is fun to listen to, but it really wouldn't be appropriate to say that for this kind of book, but, darn it, he is so fun to listen to. He animates and elevates the story. I really enjoyed his performance, I think you will too.”
R.J. - Audible
“Gary Tiedemann is amazing in his delivery and does a fabulous job setting the mood and creating suspense!” Amanda - Audible
“Wow. The narration by Gary Tiedemann was SUPERB”
Daphne - Audible
“Gary Tiedemann did a superb job with the narration. Managed to pull off some minor emotional parts and made you truly care about the characters. I have already sought out and purchased other books narrated by him based on this performance.”
Jason - Audible
Fascinating characters in a highly unusual true crime story, told by an excellent narrator. I listened to this in one day
Sue S. - Audible
“This narrator lulled me into this unknown story and author like caramel dribbled over ice cream, his voice is gorgeous, his delivery perfect and I WANT MORE!”
D.L.B. - Audible
“He does a great job with each character's personality, he is excellent with the craziness coming across…
A.L. - Audible
“Oh, and about the narrator? He nailed it. The lawless vagabonds and civilized mole people were both perfectly believable. Particularly impressive was his treatment of the mole people, who spoke in the sort of highly refined, though *minisculely* accented English of an Hispanic English professor. (I've known a few of these guys, and seriously, that's hard to do.) Even the female voices were seamless.”
Tatiana - Audible
“…ending was awesome, narration was perfect” M.S. - Audible
