After The Soul of the Fire, I was dismayed to learn that Richard and Kahlan weren't in The Pillars of Creation until the very end. TSOTF was so boring with all its side-characters, that I feared the same with TPOC. Boy, I was wrong! This book, in one word, ROCKS! I loved it! And it's nice to hear Jim Bond again; let the haters hate on him!
To focus on the series main characters and change the robotic sounding narrator.
I hope not, but I may be forced to if I continue the series.
Honestly it's just a total deviation from the series with the different character focus, just doesn't work for me.
I really know very little about the process of turning a novel into an audiobook. However, I just don't understand how some of these narrators can get through the producer's quality control mechanism in place. How do you think Jim Bond is a good narrator and continue to use his services for the series? It's beyond me....
Besides the fact that this is the slowest book in the series, the narration made it worse. I'm disappointed to see that this same narrator will be narrating the next book. I'm continuing on in this series because I'm committed. I'm hoping the other books will be better than this.
All right guys I would give this book a 5 star if I was not screaming up a storm in my head with how all the actions could be taken in a wrong way. not to mention how little all the characters I came to love were in this book. however I will grudgingly admit the the new character Jenson has grown on me. this book was a great building block for her character. I just hope after this one she keeps on appearing otherwise this book will be just a filler in my opinion. anyways happy reading!
This book focuses mostly on new characters instead of those we love on the series. Most of the book is encumbered with unnecessary detail and drawn out mini plots that could have been condensed into a few chapters. This has been my least favorite in the series to date. Where the others were addictive and kept me wanting more, I found myself wanting to reach the last chapter in this one out of sheer impatience for the monotony.
