love this author! love the plot, love the writing, love the pace, love the history, love the characters, love the action, love the love-story lol, and love love the narrator! can't wait for the next book!!!
A few months back I decided to start listening to audio books while I work and commute. I had read the two previous books in this series and figured it would be easy to listen to as I know all of the characters already. I was quite wrong. In the beginning of this story I didn't mind the particular voices Roy had for each character, but as I progressed through this book it became unbearable. His thick accent is quite distracting, and possibly as a result, he frequently slurs the words together so I have to rewind or try to decipher what he just said. The unique voices are way off from what they should be, and his pronunciation of names is horrible. I tolerated the butchering of this book, but will be enjoying the following books without the help of Roy.
I love this book. It proves yet again why the books are far superior to the show. So many great moments. Just start reading now! The night is dark and full of spoilers.
The series is stellar. (4/5 star) One that will reside near the top of fantasy book list for years to come..........
However the narrators croaky grandfather range of vocals brings down the enjoyment factor quite a lot. The way he vocally strains out some of characters and provides a Charlie CHAN vocal for another drives me crazy. These books would be helped by a vocally wider ranged narrator.
PS: The Red witch's sultry deep vocal is disturbing to me when he does it.
