excellent reading of one of my all time favorite books. they should make a tv series out of this book and Tim curry should narrate! I love this book+reader combo so much, there are really no words. if you have good taste you will like this.
I love these stories and re-read/listen to them frequently Tim Curry does a spectacular job narrating them, and I'm so glad the series is a part of my library. I am forever indebted to Garth Nix for this amazing literary creation.
Tim Curry is magnificent, distinguishing voices seamlessly, and making me hang on every word. The man is a treasure, 'nuff said.
And just when I thought there was nothing left to explore in fantasy worlds, Nix's story and world building made me want to know more about the Old Kingdom, the Charter, and its mysterious Builders.
As impressive (for one sick of choppy, plausibly deniable, tropes) is his ability to bring a consistent and believable approach to the problem of a magic and a nonmagic world coexisting, yet rubbing uncomfortably up against one another. Throw in his strong characters and an intriguing exploration of magic and the supernatural, and I went right out to buy the rest of the series. No regrets!
