Sword and Sorcery!
Fafhrd finding and losing the ring.
The narrators presented the story and introduction with feeling and entertainment
I can sit an listen to Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser at any time. Fritz Leiber is one of my favorite authors. Alwasy enjoyable. I read and listen for entertainment and enjoyment. I prefer not to critique what I am reading unless it is basically unreadable or unenjoyable.
Enjoying audiobooks daily!
Mouser and Fafhrd are fun together. These novellas start slow at times, but do continue to build into a fabulous romp in a theives guild building, finding loves of their lives and fighting dark forces. The begining stuff is good because it explains where they come from. Then it gets slow before they meet up and cause havoc. The narration could be better, but it is acceptable. Like this series and will continue it.
I am an avid reader, I love a good book more than almost anything.
Science Fiction and fantasy Grand Master Fritz Leiber's immortal creation take life in this wonderful audio book. Grand high adventure, bawdy, brutal and bouncingly fun! Classic sword and sorcery! If you are a true fan of fantasy novels such as Conan or Elic, you will enjoy this series!
I've always heard about but never tried this classic. I admit I struggled through the first couple chapters, but once the dashing duo got together the rest went by too quickly. Can't wait to continue the series. Superb writing and narration, this isn't hack and slash but great literature.
A true classic in genre fiction. It's a timeless tale and one that can be enjoyed over and over again. Narration was superb with incredibly smooth transitions between voices. However, and I cannot pin point why, I found myself loosing attention after about 10-15 min every time I listened to this story. I'm not sure if the narrator's voice was so relaxing that I drifted off or perhaps it was a matter of volume (I found myself frequently adjusting the volume up and down. It ended up taking almost twice as long to listen to the audiobook as expected. Still well worth the listen.
I hit a spot about 3/4 through Fahferd's story where it really seemed to drag. The story picked up later, especially after the two main characters meet, and I have higher hopes for the next book.
I bought this book in a greyhound bus station when I was 14 (1962). it kept me transfixed from Virginia to New York. I was surprised to see how well the story and the characters translate to this millennium.
