The American Fiancée, by Éric Dupont, translated by Peter McCambridge  

Peter McCambridge, translator of Éric Dupont's novel: La fiancée américaine / The American Fiancée:  

"I'm so glad that Jean was chosen to narrate the audio version. It's at once warm and delightful and very much larger than life - just like Eric's characters. Jean Brassard delivers the novel with a flourish, a suitably dramatic rendition of what is a fiercely dramatic family saga."  

Herwitchiness - reader comment on Instagram:  

 "finally, I was in the mood for a lengthy literary fiction novel, so I picked up the wonderfully written "The America Fiancée" by Eric Dupont with the perfectly chosen narrator Jean Brassard! Jean Brassard narrates it in such an Amélie way that no other narrator could have done it as well."

Murder on Brittany Shores and Death in Brittany, by Jean-Luc Bannalec 

Readers' comments on Audible.com: 

"Jean Brassard is the narrator who not only sounds like he is Commissaire Dupin but does a great job with all of the characters." 

"The narrator Jean Brassard really made the book come alive. He was able to communicate the personality of each character, something only the best narrators can do well. Brassard has that talent. (Sad to read that he will not be narrating the rest of the books in this series. I think I will just read them instead of listening.)" 

"It was an excellent who done it with a reader who evoked a true French feeling for the local." 

"His accent. His apparent knowledge of Brittany. His apparent respect for the characters." 

"Jean Brassard makes the pronunciations of the unfamiliar French sound so easy."
