maybe, someone needs to take the time to listen to the story and fix the 10+ errors where the story has repeating segments, as if someone took a taped copy of the story and just spliced it together without removing the overlapping segments from the many tape sides.
I would say, but it would be a story spoiler.
They both read aloud quit well, it would be nicer if Michael would read the guy arts and Kate read all the women parts. It is a bit confusing when they both read the same character different inflections and tones.
I rate as follows: 5 Stars = Loved it. 4 Stars = Really liked it. 3 Stars = Liked it. 2 Stars = Didn't like it. 1 Star = Hated it.
I love this book. I love this series. Mostly I like the 2 narrators; the format is great, but through the series they will often mispronounce names for many books and then change to the right name, and it can be confusing.
Anyway, I give this book 5 stars for the story, but the editing was all messed up. Over and over again chunks of the story will just loop back to repeat again. It's really irritating. That being said, I'd still 100% recommend the book - I just really hope at some point they fix the editing. It's a popular enough series that I think it's worth doing.
Female, Military Background, Mother, Wife. Enjoys Science, Medicine (in particular viruses and diseases).
I am highly non-plussed. Why the heck has this been a problem that has been NOTED for 5 years? That is unacceptable.
The editing was horrible. There are 253 "chapters" in this audio book. Some "chapter" breaks occur where they should while other occur mid conversation. The absolute worst part is that there are at least 15+ occurrences of repeated content (10-20 seconds each time) and it's not just within different "chapters". I hope the so called "editor" of the audiobook does his/her job better for the remaining books because this is beyond ridiculous!
I am committed to the series but will be calling audible for a partial reimbursement of money due to the DISTRACTING audio. repeated lines are what screw it up.... there is no way they had anybody listen to the recording because it repeats itself in certain chapters to the point of annoyance...
the reading was wonderful as always
the editing was worse then auful !!
an example "i cannot say what customs will be kept of abandoned.... i cannot say what customs will be kept or abandoned but..." and the thought continues finishing the sentence
The story and the performance were wonderful. As of 2016-07-23, the production quality was so bad that I am amazed that Audible continues to make it available for download. I think this must be a post-performance and pre-production copy that has not been cleaned. There are a lot of blank spaces that have not been trimmed out. And there are a lot of duplicate sections that have not been trimmed and rejoined properly. In these sections you hear the performers reading, then a long pause that has not been trimmed out, then a repeat of what you just listened to, finally followed by the continuation of the story. If you can put up with the terrible production quality, and you have enjoyed the other books, then you will likely enjoy this also. As for me, I am returning the book in hopes of drawing Audible's attention to the incomplete production of a good book.
This recording need to be edited. There are doubled parts throughout the book, most of them are short 15-20 seconds, and usually contained to there own track. Also, the tracks(chapters) are not divided up by chapter or even significant sections or where the narrators change, like they are in previous Wheel of Time books, they are just sections of time. Everything else about the book is fine, though the book does drag at a couple of points. Performances were very good.
Out of this world Teacher
I enjoyed the book overall. The audible version of the story seemed to have skips if possible. Around 10 to 20 times the audio track would replay the same minute of the story.
