Geeky painter girl who loves all things Whedonverse. Audio book addict. :D
I really enjoyed listening to this book. The characters were very interesting and engaging, and the narrator really brought everyone to life. Very cool accent as well. :D
The character depth and development was very interesting. In many ways, it's the life story of the main character (up to around age 14-16 or so); there's not necessarily a specific plot, but as the main character grows, he shapes and is shaped by the world around him in unexpected ways. Creative storytelling that keeps you guessing!
He has a rich voice with a really fantastic accent. He gives each character their own individual voice and vocal pacing so you always know which character is speaking. Brings a lot of depth to the listening experience.
Fitz's relationship with his two hounds, first Nosy, then Smithy. I didn't realize I was such a sucker for "a boy and his dog" stories. There is so much else going on in the book, but I really was touched by the descriptions of his interactions with the dogs, as well as other animals to a lesser degree.
Yes, I loved this story, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series
I thought the reader did a good job of subtly distinguishing between the voices of different characters, but every once in a while he would put the wrong emphasis in a sentence or use a strange rhythm to say a sentence, and I found this distracting.
For those of you looking for lots of action or a concise storyline--this book may not be for you. The story moves kind of slow, and the story arc is not very clear. It is, however, a wonderful telling of the life of this very interesting boy.
This series was recommended to me after I finished the last Game of Thrones offering. This is a good first book of a series. The character development is well paced and keeps you interested. Full of unpredictable moments. Looking forward to book two.
Its a bit like the Hunger Games trilogy and has some Harry Potter type magic but not quite as engrossing as either of these series.
A little slow to start but is an introduction to the characters in the next two books which have more action and are a must follow-on...
I love epic fantasy series. You can get so involved in the story and the characters for so long; the best form of entertainment I can think of/ the best way to pass time. The problem is, a lot of them are not really well written. I couldn't get through more than the first two books of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Everything seemed so cliche and predictable, the characters were fun but seemed naive.
This is the first I have read from Hobb's series, but I am certain it will be far better. At times the suspense had me at the edge of my seat. The characters and their trials seem real. The narration is excellent.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
Good book, it takes a while to get going.Some stuff is left open,so I have to start the second book.The Farseer was not explained the book goes into the skill and that is understood their could be more killings by Fits,but overall good book!!!
An excellent read. As with the Rainwild Chronicles, the Farseer Trilogy builds on an amazing world. Paul's wonderful voice leads your through the twists and turns of court life, and brewing trouble.
yes, as it is very well written. Not easy to anticipate. Exciting!
When Fitz is reunited with Nosey..
When Fitz and Barach were reconciled.
I was sorry when it ended. I wanted more info....did Fitz and Molly get together?
I loved this book. I loved that it starts off from the point of view of a small child who has no idea what's going on, and we get to figure things out along with him.
The book moves slowly, but at the perfect pace. When it was over, I couldn't wait for the next one. Unfortunately, the other books in the trilogy aren't as good.
I love the strange thoughts that come up when a book is listened to instead of read. I guess the main character's name is Fitz, but I thought his name was Fits, because he likes to throw them.
Other characters have names like Chivalry, Verity, and Regal, which took awhile to get used to in audio.
I might. This story took some unexpected twists and turns
All the surprises
I did not like his voice.
Raised to kill for his King
