This is going to sound harsh, but I simply cannot stand this narrator.
After listening to Victor Bevine narrate the entire series up to this point, I can't bear to hear the story from another person's voice. He butchers the names and the voices are all "off". It's too jarring a transition.
I liked Victor Bevine as the narrator like all of the other books in the series. MARK BRAMHALL no only is it a different voice which doesn't match with all of the other books I have leaned to. But he talks so slow that I have to concentrate real hard so I don't start day dreaming and loose focus with the book.
He talks to slow that I have a hard time staying with the book. Its better to keep with the same narrater when doing a series of books.
Necessary to do this series of you want to lesion to the next series so you can keep up with the past
Books should have been read by victor Bevine I would have enjoyed the series much better
From RA, absolutely. Bramhall, NO.
I couldn't get past the first half hour. I will kindle the rest of this series. I cannot imagine listening to Mark Bramhall for 40 more hours. It took me 10 minutes alone to figure out if audible made an automated narration for this book or if the voice was actually human. This narrator was such a bad call.
Bring back Victor!
If you have read Salvatore and have grown (like me) to enjoy the dark elf and his adventures then this is for you.
If not then read up some of he older books otherwise its like watching Die Harder with no idea who John McClane is.
It's like fantasy porn with descriptive fights, philisophical rants that mirror our society and evil beings getting stabbed.
It is like a cliche but I happen to enjoy a grumpy dwarf and if you do then this is the book for you.
the narrator sucked. what happened to victor? this guy butchered the names, the voices and the overall tone of the story. Not gonna buy the rest of the series, after really enjoying all the previous.
The gang is back.
If you enjoyed previous Dritz books, you will hate this flat, flavorless narration.
Yes, I am enjoying the on-going story of Drizzt and the Friends of the Hall.
Unfortunately the change in pronunciations... I am sure there is no actual correct way to say the names of people and places but the changes from the last book to this one are jarring... It seems a different series...
I may turn the non-auto book for the rest of the series. I might have liked Mark Bramhall's reading if I had started the long saga with him but I simply find it odd...
Absolutely. I love these kinds of stories and love to see them on the screen.
Like Audio books, love to be read to. Am retired, spend a lot a time at pool so listen to music, & audio books when have them, now I will have ones I like.
The Narrator is all.
All of the story.
Did not like the way he tried to change his voice for the charators was very bad.
I guess listened to many books where Victor Bevine was narrator, I Love all the R.A. Salvatore books, but a few have had to return was not what had expected. Other wise enjoying the the books.
R.A.Salvatore has enchanted readers for 20 + years with his tale of a rouge Dark elf (Drizzt do'Urden and his friends. This book is no different, action packed, exciting, and filled with romance, intreague and epic battle it once more leads the reader on a merry fantastical romp through the forgotten realms. Well written, and epic as always, This book is well worth the listen and definitely one of the best YET. The orc king says a lot about racial politics, war, and how misunderstandings start terrible conflicts. If you like Drizzt this is a definite, if your looking for something new and different from other fantasy worlds this is the best!
