Frank's Acting &
Narrating Career
"(When Frank reads) the blind will see, the lame will walk, and the
deaf will hear." -
Stephen King

"He is the best. A prince of language". - Pat Conroy

"The most outstanding interpreter of audio in the United States is
still Frank Muller".  -
The Wilson Library Bulletin

"the first true superstar reader in the world of spoken word audio".
Library Journal

"(he is) the best reader I have ever heard". - The Los Angeles Times

"Master narrator Frank Muller is a perfect interpreter, the medium
through which an author's words resonate to the listener. His voice
is distinct, yet it yields a thousand characters. He can be
transparent, offering the very essence of a character baring his soul
or his teeth, or speaking elegantly as he spins out a descriptive
passage. He makes the listener believe the characters no matter how
wacky and makes classic characters live and breathe for a
contemporary audience".  -
Audio File Magazine

"Nobody can set you trolling the depths of the soul like Frank
Muller can..... A veteran actor, and the darkly superb voice of some
of Recorded Books' most challenging works... He has a voice and
delivery that speak of distant, if darker places where life somehow
takes on a greater significance..." -
The Philadelphia Enquirer

"A man who can successfully recreate both Captain Ahab and
George Smiley is some kind of genius." -
The New York Times Book

"Deftly segueing from Shakespeare to Stephen King, from Melville
to John LeCarre, Muller has established himself as one of the more
ubiquitous and persuasive voices on taped books, the Laurence
Olivier of the medium" -
The Chicago Tribune

estimates that for each
of the titles Frank has
recorded there are at
least 5,000 copies in
existence in public
libraries today. Frank
has recorded over
books for over 100
, so that suggests
there are
copies in existence!
Libraries report that
popular audio books
circulate 10 to 15 times
annually, so each of
Frank's performances
could be reaching
50,000 to 75,000
new listeners every year
 Multiplying that
estimate times the
number of copies would
conservatively suggest
that 10,000,000 readers
are reached each year. If
you then multiply that by
the number of years
each author's audio
books have been in
existence, you begin to
get an inkling of the
incredible number of
individuals who have
experienced literary
works through Frank's
skills as a storyteller.
