Say your company was gonna pay some one to narrate a 38hr book. Wouldn't you listen to him read a paragraph first? Worst narration of any book yet. On top of that he loses all the personality the previous narrator created in the first book. Terrible decision to change the reader mid series but in this one it happens multiple times. I previewed the 3rd book and the guy sounds worse yet. Then I check 4-5 and they continue to change so I'm giving up on this as an audio book series. Guess you still can't beat paper some times.
LOVE reading but illness makes listening easier. Thanks audible, for pulling me back into life!
The book is fantastic. Funny, mesmerizing, creative, NOT predictable. Fantastic book and series so far, but...
I've never heard such an awful narrator. He is either using a monotonous 80's computer voice, or way-over-acting creating sloppy melodrama that's not in the text itself!
Can't wait for the next books for the story to continue AND to get this horrible narrator out of my head!
Loved the book like the series in the beginning but near the end it's just repeating the authors beliefs over and over and over again. So this book was good but after book 4 it's pretty terrible.
The suspenseful and riveting writing is the only aspect that allowed me the ability to suffer the terrible narrating. Long, unnecessary pauses and incorrect tone throughout this book left me wondering if the narrator was sleepy or simply uninterested in portraying this wonderful story of magic, life lessons, and love properly. The narrator of Book One would have been ideal throughout this series.
Worst narrator ever. Half way through the book, I realized that his voice reminds me of the text-to-speech programs on old Mac computers from the 90's. He ruined the story for me
Fantasy at its finest! Get your story on! No spoilers tho, you have to suffer thru just like I did :)
