The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
What a pleasure to listen to your narration, especially while riding the F train. I wanted to say to some of the passengers, hey, if you wanna hear some serious storytelling, listen to this. So by me, number 1: I loved it …in my opinion, you really done good on this. Congrats again–serious storytelling, just the way to narrate dramatic fiction.
Paul Ruben, multi-award winning audiobook director/producer
Totally Engaging! Couldn’t stop listening. I’ve read this story before and thought it was just OK but when I listened to Dawn Harvey narrate, I thought it was fabulous!! She drew me into the story completely! I believed she was the one with the severe mental meltdown! Awesome job!!
I love the Yellow Wallpaper. I’ve read it numerous times during high school and college. This is my first time listening to it. Dawn Harvey did an amazing job narrating. I would recommend it to anyone, especially women.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Wonderful revisit of this classic book! It was great to listen to this story again, haven’t heard it since I was a girl. Narrator Dawn Harvey brought the characters to life. I laughed out loud at the Queen of Hearts, and the Mock Turtle. A charming rendition, easily one of the best classics I’ve heard.

The Wife by Meg Wolitzer
There is a true-to-life tension here between husband and wife that is rarely dealt with honestly. Bravo for a searing honesty, read with equal conviction by Dawn Harvey.

Florence Gordon by Brian Morton
[Dawn Harvey] did a good job giving young Emily the “upspeak” lilt appropriate to her generation, and differentiating her from her grandmother, Florence.

SHORT STORIES AND ANTHOLOGIES
A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin
…the narrators of this short story collection…slip easily inside the sidelined and marginalized characters who populate these semiautobiographical stories. Berlin’s writing…provides a perfect springboard, and the narrators use it to full advantage: gracefully leaping, twisting, and—when called for—landing with force on the emotional heart of each story.
The readers were fabulous.
Audible Listener, U’l
These short vignettes of the daily routine, crises, and terrible dilemmas facing working women and their families are narrated beautifully.

Outer Diverse, Book One of the Splintered Universe Trilogy by Nina Munteanu
Ms. Harvey did a superb job with the narration. She manages to enthuse the personality of the characters into each voice. The wise, gentle Caw has a soft, strong sound that reminds you of a wise old bird. Shlsh Shle She, a slippery, slimy creature has a slurry, garbled voice like a mouthful of mushy, wet food. Dawn’s reading conveys the loneliness in Rhea, the sexiness of Serge, the frustrated, friendliness of Bas, and the faithful, coziness of Bennie. She is able to bring emphasis to the action or romance, weariness or fear elements of the story. The narration never takes over the story but rather enhances it.
Martha’s Bookshelf Blogspot
Dawn Harvey was the perfect narrator for this novel as it is all told from Rhea’s point of view. Dawn came across as strong and determined without over playing it. Plus, I like how she says my last name with a variety of epithets. The alien voices were challenging, and Dawn met those challenges with gusto.
Dab of Darkness Book Reviews
My imagination is exploding with the help of Dawn’s characterization of your amazing aliens.
Vanessa, Listener on Goodreads
Dawn Harvey breathed incredible life into the lead character–both sarcastic and vulnerable at the same time; a detective with a cynical edge, and sultry voice tinged with wiry sarcasm. Listening to Dawn Harvey’s performance–she narrated some 30 different alien voices, including the sentient ship of Rhea’s–gave each character an independent presence that had me listening with intense pleasure. She manages to enthuse the personality of the characters into each voice. The narration never takes over the story but rather enhances it. Working with Dawn was a pleasure. Dawn is a dedicated professional; she created unique and consistent voices for the book’s thirty-odd mostly alien characters. She ensured that each character had the appropriate vernacular, tone, accent and cadence. She also tackled the “alien” vocabulary; Rhea’s universe is full of strange and foreign terms. This lady is dedicated to her craft and her art! WHO NEEDS COFFEE WHEN YOU HAVE DAWN HARVEY!

Radiomen by Eleanor Lerman
After listening to Dawn Harvey’s narration of Eleanor Lerman’s insightful story, Radiomen is likely to leave you never again questioning the imagination or intelligence of seemingly innocuous workers. Through Dawn Harvey’s narration, we meet strangers who with deft dialog address many of the larger questions of life and deliver both answers and more questions in this poetic rendering of contemporary philosophies and social frustrations. The pages are gifted with colorful prose presented in an often haunting and disturbing eloquence. Very good listen, this.

BIOS AND MEMOIRS
Love in Every Stitch by Lee Gant
[Dawn Harvey] had a lovely voice that was soothing and emotional at the same time.
Lindsey, Audible Listener
Dawn Harvey shared Lee Gant’s stories on audiobook. I felt that Harvey’s voice fit very well with the tone of the book. Her voice reminded me of a mother or grandmother sharing a story. … Harvey captured the emotions well.

REMARKS IN GENERAL
Tanya Perez, Dog Eared Copy: Dawn’s narrative skills are extremely strong on all accounts. She knows how to shape and drive a story, she knows how to handle the straight narrative vs. the dialogue, her character delineations are clear and distinctive (male vs. female; individual) without going over the top and; she is connected to the text both intellectually and emotionally. In addition, she has a pleasant alto-range voice.
