Full-length reviews:

  • A Little Princess by Frances Hodges Burnett, reviewed at I Am Dovetail. “I had the luck of finding the most wonderful audio recording of the book on librivox … read by one of my favourite readers Elizabeth Klett whose timing, elocution and characteristic voice brings many stories alive.”
  • Defects by Sarah Noffke, reviewed at Mindjacked. “I had the audio narrated by the wonderful Elizabeth Klett, she did such a great job, I totally lost myself in this book and found myself wanting to help and cheering Em and Rogue on myself.  She just made this book so awesome for me, what a wonderful author narrator team.”
  • The Lucidites boxed set by Sarah Noffke, reviewed at Grammy’s Bookshelf. “The Narrator – Elizabeth Klett – is FABULOUS! She created voices that perfectly suited the characters. She was delightful to listen to (which is good cause it’s over 35hrs!!!)”
  • The House by P.M. Prior, reviewed at Audiobook Reviewer. “Elizabeth Klett … brings the character of Prue to life in every respect … Elizabeth fully embodies her vulnerability and confusion, without betraying her better nature and also keeps us guessing about the direction the story will take right until the bitter end.”
  • Keepers of the Labyrinth by Erin E. Moulton, reviewed at Audiofile Magazine. “An exciting history and mythology adventure is narrated with perfection by Elizabeth Klett … Klett offers an extensive cast of characters with varying emotion. The tween cast sounds pitch-perfect, and Klett easily navigates from one accent to another, with each character sounding unique.”
  • Revived (The Lucidites #3) by Sarah Noffke, reviewed at Paranormaly Yours. “Elizabeth is such a wonderful narrator. She is such a perfect fit for Roya, and does a hilarious snarky Joseph, and sarcastic nasty Ren, that make this whole audible experience so great. I feel like I have developed a bond with Roya through Elizabeth’s amazing narration.”
  • Stunned (The Lucidites #2) by Sarah Noffke, reviewed at Paranormaly Yours. “Elizabeth has been a great story teller for Roya Stark. I fell into an easy comfort with her voice, and really felt like she was portraying the characters as real, as if it were her own life being played out. I enjoy her subtle change in tone for the men, and really well interpreted voices for all the females.”
  • Awoken (The Lucidites #1) by Sarah Noffke, reviewed at Paranormaly Yours. “Elizabeth had a fresh young girl tone to her voice, as well as a kick ass British accent for Ren!  Elizabeth delivered an excellent performance for all the characters, and there were a lot of them!”
  • Ghouls Night Out, by Rose Pressey, reviewed at Eargasms Audiobook Reviews. “Her pace is terrific, just swift enough to keep the story moving.”
  • Rock ‘n Roll is Undead, by Rose Pressey, reviewed at Eargasms Audiobook Reviews. “She has a great tone that really adds to the quality of the read.”
  • Me and My Ghoulfriends, by Rose Pressey, reviewed at Eargasms Audiobook Reviews. “I will definitely be looking for more of her reads!”
  • Death of a Nationalist, by Rebecca Pawel, reviewed at Book Sexy Review. “Her character voices are nuanced, each is imbued with subtle individuality.”
  • The Awakening, by Kate Chopin, reviewed at The Girl on the Left Has Read This Book. “Elizabeth… imbues her reading with passion and a certain understated emphasis just where it’s needed.”
  • Dracula, by Bram Stoker, reviewed at Stewartry. “Elizabeth Klett was sweet and lovely as poor Mina.”

Applause:

  • “Elizabeth Klett presents a beautiful rendering of Virginia Woolf’s collection of short stories. The stories themselves are curious and occasionally abstract as Woolf brings to light the difficulties and paradoxes of the lives of women in early 20th century society. Klett’s reading is clear and expressive, but not overdramatic as her voice is able to capture the subtleties and ironies of Woolf’s often challenging writing. She renders Woolf’s abstract prose accessible to the average listener and captures the sheer beauty of Woolf’s writing.” – A five-star review of Monday or Tuesday at Audible.
  • Elizabeth’s LibriVox recordings of EmmaLady Audley’s SecretNorthanger AbbeyA Room With a View and Wives and Daughters are all featured as “Recommended LibriVox Recordings” at Worthwhile Books (with links to individual reviews).
  • “Elizabeth Klett is charming, well paced, and clearly in tune with the material. Her cultured British accent at times both at odds with the content, and yet perfectly tuned to set the stage. The production is clean, the audio quality top notch, and I applaud her performance. I look forward to more.” “Elizabeth Klett did an exceptional job as narrator, keeping the action moving with a variety of different voices, tones and accents that kept me wanting to hear more.” – Two five-star reviews of Into the Dark by J.A. Sutherland at Audible.
  • “Elizabeth Klett is consistent in her work and a “go to” narrator for me. She is outstanding at adding dimension and personality to each character with her narrative style. She’s always a pleasure to listen to and easy to follow.” “Elizabeth Klett does an amazing job at bringing these wonderful characters to life and recreating all the mystery, suspense and emotion of a well-written, classic story. The storyline drew me in and I kept wanting to hear more. I love the expression Elizabeth puts into her books and she carries off different accents well, especially if the book is not American based. I have listened to many of her recordings and she is a favourite of mine in her narration.” – Two reviews of The Mysterious Key by Louisa May Alcott at Audible.
  • “This is the second book of Ms. Klett’s that I have listened to. The first was Me and My Ghoulfriends. That book was set in the United States and Ms. Klett’s narration there was spot on. As this book is set in England, I would have to say that Ms. Klett is a very talented narrator. Her ability to make one think that she is English in this book and American in the other is amazing.” – Review of How to Survive Your Sisters by Ellie Campbell at Audible.
  • “Elizabeth Klett did a wonderful job narrating. She really brought the characters to life, using a variety of accents and giving each character their own distinct voice. For example, her Scottish brogue for the father was very believable, as was her Aussie accent for one of the sister’s boyfriends. Elizabeth was also able to switch genders and generations with ease. Simply put, How to Survive Your Sisters is a fantastic story of sisterly strife and affection.” – Review at Audible.
  • “She is actually my favorite female reader, and I’ve enjoyed quite a bit of great stories read by her in the past. Her voice is calm and soothing and she always manages to keep me interested no matter what. The fact that she was the reader was the main reason why I wanted this audiobook!” – Review of Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan LeFanu at Audible.
  • “Elizabeth Klett’s narration is simply fantastic. She really brings the characters to life, giving each character their own distinct voice. She is also able to switch genders and generations with ease.” – Review of Miriam Minger’s Wild Angel on Audible.
  • “Elizabeth Klett gives us a wonderful, professional quality reading of this classic. Happy to report that her British accent is very creditable, even to the ears of a native speaker. Brava!” – The Bookworm (Manchester, UK), on the Internet Archive.
  • “Kudos to Elizabeth Klett for another excellent reading [of Jane Eyre]! Once again her voicing and interpretations brought the story to life. There’s so much more to the story when she reads to me than I ever get out of it when I read it silently to myself.” – ListeninginChicago, on the Internet Archive.
  • “I’ve listened to many of Elizabeth’s Klett’s books and she reads exceptionally well. Her reading of Miss Fuller was superb as usual. I highly recommend this book.” – Audible.com user review.
  • “Elizabeth is a really good reader! Her pace allows you to be creative with the emotions and she doesn’t try to over engineer it.” – Audible.com user review of Fires of Alexandria.
  • “Elizabeth Klett is wonderful and has read pretty much all of Jane Austen and Edith Wharton for Librivox.” – From the English Mafia blog post on LibriVox.
