I grew up reading these books. I still have them in my book shelf. I got very excited when i saw them on audible,but then disappointed to read everyone's reviews on how horrible the then narrator was. I'm glad to say the re-recording of this series with a new narrator will not disappoint. The voices all work for me and even Tas isnt annoying to listen to.
If you enjoyed the Lord Of The Rings,then you will like this series even more.
Very monotone and bland, like others before me his character voices are great, but the overall tone is very bland. I noticed many times throughout it the audio seems to skip, which is incredibly annoying, and as such would not recommend others to listen to this book, even though the story itself is great. I guess my opinion would be to read the actual book(its not that long) instead of slogging through this terrible recording.
Mr. Boehmer was very bland. He sounds like a very sophisticated artificial speech program. It was really hard to get through the book. Too bad he reads the other books in this series.
Like others, Paul Boehmer's cadence is really strange, and so noticeable that it really is distracting. This is not just Paul's fault, but also of whoever directed and produced this. That said, an interesting difference is when he is doing character voices, that whole stuttered cadence thing that happens in narration seems to disappear. So dialog is just fine I thought.
I'm too biased to write this! I loved all of these books, and was so sweet to revisit all my old friends! Next I will dive into RA Salvatore's Crystal Shard, as I have missed all those friends too!
Lots of high adventure and plenty of humor as well. The first one is so fast paced you may have to relisten to get it all, but it will be worth it!
Probably would have liked to have spent my time on another book, honestly.
Not especially. I got bored with the story and honestly fell asleep often. At least the narrator has a soothing voice!
Both were slow, so I suppose so.
No. The relationships between characters seemed flippantly described and the characters had no depth to them overall.
Not my cup of tea. Main issue was with the character development. Severely lacking
I love this series bit the reading was very tough to listen to.
These r some of the best charecters, only Salvatore does a better job.
the narrator struggled witht th eflow and his voice was almost painful to listen to.
