Not at this point. I would not try another one of Jim Bond's performance because he kind of ruined my book.
The issue that I have is that you should never have more then 1 person do a whole series The narrator whom did the Sword of Truth should be doing the rest of the series. This guy doesn't do it much justice. I understand that it isn't audibles fault. but WOW. this guy almost makes me rather read the book and hope the next guy is better. His telling of the story is disheartening. I was hoping that it would be better then the person before but I was wrong.

I have read this series multiple times but have started listening to all my books by audible so I have vast experience with listening to books. Jim Bond has RUINED this book for me! I have no idea how this man was hired to narrate one book but Terry Goodkind has him narrating multiple books in this series and it is boggling to my mind how anyone could enjoy this! Not only is his natural infection off but he sounds like a computer half the time and I have no clue how or why someone would enjoy his style! I could narrate this better in my sleep! An absolute nightmare! I now know to actively avoid anything and everything narrated by Jim Bond. To make up for it Jim you should pay Goodkind back every cent he paid you to narrate his books plus damages for all the people you turned off from a truly awesome series. Shame on you Mr Bond!
The book I would give five stars but I wish I could give the audible book zero stars that's truly how terrible it is. But please don't let this narrator ruin your enjoyment of a wonderful book and just read it for yourself!
The narrator from The Wizard's First Rule is by far the best narrator I've ever listened to. His characters were believable and enjoyable. I wasn't so keen on Jim Bond at first. It took him a while to not sound so mechanical in his characters. Had he been the first narrator, I don't think I would've gotten into the story. I am now invested in these books though. Terry Goodkind is a brilliant author.
This being the second in the Sword of Truth series, I had high expectations. I loved the first book, and, as far as the story and characters are concerned, this is its equal.
My only disappointment was the narration. I thoroughly enjoyed the narration of the first book, but this one--at times--seemed a bit stiff. Definitely not as smooth as I had hoped. It was most noticeable (to my ears) in the early chapters. It improved from there, but there were even times near there end that it brought that initial impression back to mind. It did not prevent me from enjoying the story, but neither was it something about which I might rave.
All in all, a fantastic story--epic in score and length. If the rest of the series is half as good as this one, I'll be enjoying Goodkind for a long time!
I got through the first book but the change in narrator really made me lose interest in this book
Throw in sexual topics and that really made me lose interest in this sci fiction novel
Almost like someone wrote the book
I'd rather relisten to old favorites
