in the top right now :)
raistlin ofc :P
but the best part is no doubt when the big red dragon defend the human becouse she think of her children, the end of that fight just makes your jaw kinda fall, its soo well written and narrated
the narrator is amazingly good, his woman voices could be better but hey his a guy, besides that he is extremely good so much soul into the charecters :D
but no havent heard anything else with him yet but i diffinately will
not sure.. there is alot of good once.
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.
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.
This book is like a patchwork quilt where many of the squares (certain characters, Raistlyn in particular) are beautiful, intriguing, and appear to have been sewn with great talent and attention to detail. They are held together by mediocre stitching and interspersed with squares that are flat and unimaginative.
As an aspiring fantasy author I'm glad I'm reading this series to see and digest the good parts and draw some cautionary lessons from the bad parts. As a straight reader, this may not be worth your time.
His emphases are in all the wrong places; that's the primary thing. He is perpetually slowing down and weighting some pointless word in, say, a descriptive introduction to a scene, like this (taken from Winter Night, but typical of both books): "...in the *grip*...of winter." I don't think he knows what cliches are. Also up there is his use of annoying accents for various characters, coupled with a fairly poor degree of consistency in their use.
I'm glad I'm finally reading it after all these years. There are very interesting characters and character relationships to digest in this series: Raistlyn-Carigwen [I have no idea how these are actually spelled], Riverwind-Goldmoon in this book. There are some ways in which this series handles verisimilitude of people with divergent outlooks and goals trying to cooperate very well.
Up until now, there have only been two versions of the Dragonlance classics. One was an abridged version I had back in the late 80's on cassette. The other was a little known version only available to services to the blind, which had all the emotion of a phone book recital. This is an audiobook worthy of this Classic.
Even though I love it, I think that I am slightly offended on behalf of my culture. Why did he have to give all the gully dwarves Southern accents?!?
Love this book - but will not recommend ANYONE to listen to the audiobook version. I'm so very disappointed and upset that I wasted a credit on it. :(
I've read this book several years ago and LOVE the series, but I was absolutely disappointed with the audiobook by this reader. I had to stop listening. It was so very poorly read that I couldn't listen to the book itself. When others say "Shatneresque" quality - they truly weren't kidding. Why would anyone hire this person to read an audio book for them? I've never stopped listening before, but I just couldn't continue. It was so distracting. I only gave one star for performance because it wouldn't let me leave it with "0" stars.
movie grand master
Great novel for any d&d, fantasy or sci-fi fan. Good presentation and reading.
Loved this series good to returning to it
