This is a great book. Highly recommended.
It is full of life, romance, suspense. It will keep you gripped to your seat throughout the whole book. The Narrator is also excellent, a well read and thoroughly enjoyable listen.
This was a completely engrossing "read". Once I began listening, I could hardly stop - often falling asleep after listening late into the night. If you are looking for a story with absorbing and sympathetic characters, be sure to pick this one up.
This book was very good if you enjoy fantasy. Set in a middle ages plagued by sorcery and gods a strong willed man trys to soldier on against all odds. This along with the paladin of souls and the Hallowed Hunt are amazing books.
I have been captivated by this audiobook. The narrator, Lloyd James, alters the inflection and tone of his voice to match the personalities of the prominent characters, so that they seem like individuals. I find that, between my listening sessions, I'm dreaming of the story, and even thinking about it during my waking hours.
This has not been my usual genre, but this is an exceptional book. I seldom give five stars, but this gets five from me. The story was well woven, the religious aspect not overwhelming and the narration was performance art. Well worth your time and money!
I really enjoyed this book. It was captivating from the beginning. The characters are flawed, but they draw you in. I couldn't give a better endorsement. Also, the reader was wonderful.
At first the readers voice was a bit annoying and the story was slow to develop but once the story began to take shape the voice actually fit the character perfectly. It was not fantasy on a high level in terms of magic and tolkien type imagery but rather a simpler story that developed the characters and helped the reader to understand the times and the lay of the land. The chivalry and etiquette of the time was interesting as compared to todays lack of loyalty and humility so it was refreshing. I could not wait to here what would happen next to lift the curse from Chalion and I felt I wished the book would go on and on rather than ending. Great read!
I had read Cordelia's Honor and was looking for more Bujold. The Curse of Chalion was exciting. I sat in the driveway just to listen to the next few lines and now I want the next in the series on Audible as soon as possible.
The story was not a bad one but I wish that I had read the book instead of listened to it. The narrator's voice and style were wrong for a fantasy novel and his habit of mumbling his words almost drove me over the edge. It was all that I could do to finish the tale.
If you are looking for an excellent story that is read extremely well and you don't mind a little sex and violence then check out George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire".
