with the main character perspective being a female I think a narrator with such a deep voice want the best possible choice. even so, he did a great job.
I've loved this book ever since I first read it when I was twelve. It has adventure, magic, and marvelous world building. Tim Curry brings it to life with his slightly creepy voice that is perfect for the story.
I picked this up after a friend recommended it and I am very thankful. I loved it. Sabriel is a wonderfully written story and this production is wonderfully read by Tim Curry. I would urge any fan of fantastical fiction, no matter how casual the interest, to pick this one up.
Excellent characters, a deep, rich world and brilliant storytelling. Sabriel has it all!
The story is brilliant. The characters are familiar but still original. A wonderful and enchanting coming of age story set in the magical Old Kingdom.
Tim Curry's narration is top notch. He nails it. His voice is as magical as the story.
I listen to audiobooks while on the stairmaster. I stayed on way longer than intended most days because the story is so amazing.
The recording quality was difficult to get used to. The narrator and story were both very good. I'm surprised Audible produced such a poor quality recording.
More substance, less predictability, fewer - references to left/right sides of some minor descriptive detail, thin air tangents, nasal voices, repititions of the words "charter markers" and themes borrowed from stories ranging from the Little Mermaid (Disney style), to the Wizard of Oz. Ive forced myself through the 5th chapter and can't take anymore tonight.
This is book one... more foundation please.There were more groping and dangling arms in this story than an octopus.
The narrator sounded largely bored and vocal modulation was minimal. He has only a few alternative voices that seem to range from high nasal to falsetto nasal. If he injected a bit more vocal modulation, there would have been no need to change voices at all. His natural voice was much easier to follow and would have been enough. I appreciate his natural voice best.
