Very intriguing story, keeps you wondering, what's going to happen next . Loved the book. This is the 2nd time I've read this one.
Sam Tsoutsouvas is a master of voices. it's scarcely possible the same man voiced all the characters. this book is one of my all time favorites and I am blessed it was read by Sam
I knew I would give this book 5 stars before I even got half way through. I just don't know who did a better job, the writer or the narrator. This is the best narration I've ever heard in an audiobook (and I've heard about 100 or more books). Everything is done so well that I can't really pick out any one thing to rave about. This is just an amazing piece of work ...the whole book in its entirety.
I'm a fantasy fan which establishes a bit of bias, but objectively I think I'd still find this book amazing. the performance is solid and the story extremely compelling. Already bought book 2 and can't wait to start listening.
the negatives reviews are a bit harsh. while I admit the author is no Robert Jordan, the story is still interesting. the characters could be better written, and the dialog a bit simple, I was still entertained. for one, the narrator is good and that is a big deal with audio books.
if you liked the TV show legend of the seeker, this is the series it is based on, though pretty different.
