this is one of my favorite books in this series. the Narrator did an awesome job. not overly fond 9f his Zed voice, and while he alternated pronunciation of Kelton, it was not distracting and I enjoyed the narrating nearly as much as the story.
Ok so the second book with Jim Bond was bad, and I read the review on this book and was worried.....but after listening I don't understand the hate for the narrator.... he says names correctly at least the ones I read complaints about I didn't hear him mix names up or say the same name differently.... I'm not sure if those were old reviews but I just didn't see the issue, he only says the name of the confessors city wrong but Jim Bond did also. I'd say if you made it through book two this guy is like gold!
the story wasn't bad it was a solid book in the series
Don't know if I got a different narrator than other reviewers, but I did not notice any of the problems mentioned. Maybe not quite as good as the first two, but no issues and I could get into the story just fine. I LOVE the Sword of Truth series! I've read the whole series about for times and now once through on audio books so I can listen to it while I work. So far very happy with audibles and my experience!
I would find it really hard to listen to this again because of the narrator. Sam Tsoutsouvas is the only one so far that has really captured my attention at every corner. I fell asleep too many times to this book because the author sounded less into it than the other two books.
He puts me to sleep, really fast.
If you made it through book one, you can't stop at book 2. Definitely continue on past 3. This is just the epic adventure I needed in life.
How small details from previous books end up in this story, with more detail
The chuckle in his voice when he voices Zed.
There are many comments about Schirner's narration. I preferred his narration over the one used for book 2. I am now into Book 4 (Temple of the Winds) and I am finding that narrator much more challenging to endure. I enjoyed Schirner's interpretation of different people.
I'm completely enthralled in this series. from the very beginning of book one the depth of the story had built and the details are absolutely addicting. the characters and story line are so masterfully built that I can get lost in the story.
I am pissed that people complained about this reader. I almost didn't buy the book based on those reviews but I am very happy I did. This reader is much better than the second. excellent story and performance.
