this was in my opinion a filler book. nothing is resolved or learned. It is a predictable book. Richard doesn't even use the sword the whole book. this just wasn't my favorite. narrators voice is nice except when it comes to imagining women's voices he sometimes squeaks.
Buck Schirner is a good narrator especially when compared to Jim Bond however even a the best narrator can't turn a bad book into a good one. When writing it is sometimes necessary to have a character with few to no redeeming qualities, characters like that can be very difficult to write. Unfortunately Mr. Goodkind seems to be extraordinarily good at writing characters with no redeeming qualities as they comprise about 70% of all the characters in this book.
this book has great ups and downs. Could not stop listening. I love every step of the way. Incredible and pleasing to the ears. wish I could just flow from one to the next, from beginning to end.
Yes, it leaves you wanting to hear the next part of the story.
The Robert Jordan series "The Wheel of Time."
First of all Buck Schirner did a fantastic job reading this. His female voices leave a little to be desired but to be fair he has a very deep voice so I am going to forgive him on that. Goodkind spends a long time on characters you don't actually care about, but they are an essential part of the story so stick through it. I wish there was one solid consistent reader across this series, but Buck did a fantastic job and learned how to pronounce the names!!!
