STELLAR REVIEWS for ODDS BODKIN’S EPIC DRIVE STORY COLLECTION

Norman Chiang writes: “This is one of the best (if not the best purchases/investments) I’ve made all year. I’m excited to share it with my family. At $99, this is really quite a steal … given The Odyssey alone is worth as much. (Not to mention, other such amazing series in this collection – Hercules, The Hidden Grail, etc…)

Odds’ storytelling – including sound effects, voice, music, pacing, wit and style – is both versatile and relevant. It is a talent that needs witnessing and preservation.

All the stories I’ve so far listened to have been precise and polished, a cut above anything else I’ve seen from others at live shows and readings. Odds is a true artist, who understands the weight of virtue and fiction. A true role model for the ages.”

Amilolomy writes: “This is the version that made me absolutely fall in love with the Beowulf story, and really understand why it has become such a classic piece of literature. There is such life and emotion in the way Bodkin tells it, that you just can’t get from reading it alone. He takes it from being a dry, unsentimental piece of curriculum and spins it into a deeply moving journey, I always find myself crying by the end of it.”

MAGIC IN THE BACK SEAT

It’s not too often that parents in the front seat listen to their kids’ media in the back.

So if it’s “raining tacos” in your car and that’s driving you crazy, consider The Little Proto Trilogy, three feature-length dinosaur stories by Odds Bodkin. Good for ages four and up. They’re audios, but so full of sound and action they feel like movies. Great adventures. Solid life lessons. Lots of laughs. Even songs to sing.

If you’ve never heard it, take Professor James Tatum of the Dartmouth Department of Classic’s recommendation: “This closest thing we have to a Homeric performance. A tour de force.”

SPOKEN WORD WORLDS

“What is it?” asks the ten year old.

“It’s one of Odds Bodkin the Storyteller’s drives. Come on, let’s plug it in.” The parent inserts the Epic Drive into the parent’s computer and a list of titles appears. “Ever heard of The Odyssey?”

“No.”

“Ever heard of Zeus, Athena and the ancient Greek gods?”

“In some books at school.”

“All right. Well, way back when, people didn’t have books.”

“Why not?”

“Because they hadn’t been invented yet. No books. No TVs. No tablets or phones. But they did have stories. And people called Singers of Tales would come to town to tell stories to crowds of people. A famous one was named Homer. The Odyssey is one of his stories. He used voices and music, and people imagined his adventure, like going to the movies in their minds. That’s how Odds Bodkin does it.”

“So there’s no pictures?”

The parent starts to play the recording. The ten year old hears wind, then bird cries and music. A voice from inside a horse fashioned of wood begins to speak. All is danger, and stealth. In the ten year old’s mind, the walled city of Troy appears in the dawn light.

It’s 1300 B.C. and the Odyssey has begun.

That night, the child stays up late, under the covers, listening, since the tale is four hours long.
