I have enjoyed both the print and audio versions of Bitterwood. I would gladly experience either, but audio books are so convenient and bring the action to life.
I got back into epic fantasy with James Maxey's Bitterwood, Storm Front by Jim Butcher and Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. I enjoyed each of them, but just comparing each volume on it's own bitterwood was my favorite.
Dave Thompson did a wonderful job of bringing to life a variety of characters and making each sound unique. He did a wonderful job as an aged dragon scientist and as a scared 9 year old girl. He kept each voice unique and filled each line with the appropriate pathos and emotion. He even did a few animal sounds, singing and sound effects. I hope he does the rest of the trilogy.
This book is epic. It has elements from fantasy and science fiction. It is in different turns humorous, action packed, dramatic and the surprises keep on coming. It keeps you guessing right to the end.
I received this audio book as a free review copy, but I had read and loved the book beforehand. I asked for the review copy so that I could express how much I enjoy this book and author and encourage others to give it a try.
