I've found my new favorite series! Nick Podehl is an amazing performer. There are some annoyingly obvious cuts that can probably be chalked up to bad sound mixing/ editing, but this is minor. Must Listen!
The Name of the wind is awesome!! the story is great, with many twists and turns while still being easy to follow and enjoy. However the narator is what makes it.
Bought this book on a whim of the sample. I liked the brief description and the narrator was good. The story is complex at the beginning but the author does a great job tying up the loose ends and pulling it together. One of the best books I've listened to.
This author is a true wordsmith and storyteller. Skillful writing, unique characters and world, intricate and intriguing plot. let me put it this way I burned through this bk and the second both around 40 hours each in two weeks. I couldn't stop. I haven't fan girled this hard in years lol. It has elements of all of the best fantasy tropes but in a unique and interesting way. I am not doing it justice. just do yourself a favor and read it. oh and the audio narrator is REALLY good!!!
"Every day is a fight, I have scars. But through struggle I will endure and become a fearful foe."
This book has such a dastardly tail that it swoops you up and keeps you wanting chances are you will look into his other writings for this is truly an addiction and we need our fix.
My friend warned me it's a slow start. Wait until the inn keeper and the chronicler meet, if you stop listening before that you would have missed a great story. Patience is a virtue after all.
