Music is still forever in your Soul and art is forever in your Spirit!
love it. i read this book when I was a sophomore high school, and still love it! love the narrator! he is the most interesting character.
I love this series. For years I've heard Tim Curry narrated the first book. Recently, I've been on a re-read kick, so I looked up this version of Sabriel and am loving it! Tim does an excellent job with reading the characters and narrating overall. I really can't put the book down this time. I may have to start all over from the beginning since I've listened to it so much over the last couple of days. I definitely recommend this book!
Very high. Tim Curry reading a dark fantasy novel about necromancers is just so great.
I might compare this to Mistborn, in that they both do an excellent job of world building, have strong female leads, fantasy, and a slight steampunk bent. Otherwise, they are different stories, with Sabriel being more of an adventure type tale (with zombies). Mistborn is more of a "chosen one" narrative.
He really gets across the gothic atmosphere. He absolutely slays the role of Mogget, the sardonic little cat demon.
I found it very thrilling and really got lost in the intricate world the author built. I gasped a few times when particularly gruesome foes appeared.
If any of the following words appeal to you just do yourself a favor and listen to this book.
This book was recommended by s friend. I enjoyed the story- but I will admit to wondering why an elderly male voice was chosen for a book about a young female. I am on to the sequel...
More in the YA genre. I usually don't like YA so I should have guessed I might be disappointed in this. The whole novice necromancer learning on the job thing was kind of interesting and unique at first but eventually became rather formulaic and predictable. Sooo it was kinda cool but then got a little boring. Tim Curry does a great job narrating which saves some points. YA fans will probably love it. Just not for me.
A solid 3 stars though.
