Romeo + Juliet updates from David Hewson

Romeo + Juliet author David Hewson tweeted 2 updates on the audiobook:

Tweet, Romeo + Juliet audiobook cover revealed

And Reid Armbruster tweeted a photo of himself and Richard at Audible Audible connects with actors for audiobook performances

Richard is listed in this article among other actors who have performed for audible.

The second book released in February was Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield, as performed by Richard Armitage. The Hobbit actor has performed for multiple Audible books already and he does not disappoint in this version of the famed Dickens novel. Readers love how Armitage is able to fully form each of the characters in readers’ minds by giving them a specific voice, making the story all the more realistic. Despite the fact that there are over 50 characters introduced in this coming-of-age novel, Armitage performs perfectly.
