The breakdown, point by point instructions
A better way to understand
No, not that type of book
Nah... While it was interesting to see the resolve unfold, it was a little too realistic to me. I like my fantasy books to be totally magical, distant and full of imagination. This one read like a story of a girl growing up in India. Even down to the detail of the Pardeens and an ox becoming a God. It all sounds like Indian culture and beliefs. Not that this is good or bad, it just didn't arouse my imagination very much.
Nah... First impressions and all, there is just too much available out there.
Performance was good.
Not the whole thing. Some parts yes but other parts dragged on a bit, especially in the beginning.
Yes, I probably would. This one was captivating form the first chapter, full of action and a lot of resolve from the first 2 books.
Comparable to book 1 in the series for the action and interest it holds. Also I would compare it to Warbreaker for an amazing ride of a story and a very satisfying resolve
As with the first 2 books he was great. I still think some of the characters should have had a more powerful voice based on their personalities but overall his voice was very engulfing.
Swords of Fate
I would recommend this book with caution. It is the continuation of book one and it must be read in order to go on to book three, however, it was slow and I had to make an extra effort to stay interested.
I have not listened to other books by him except for book one in this series and this one pales by comparison
Great voice overs for each character. Rise and fall of tone to make for interest. Some of the characters could have used a little more powerful voice based on their descriptions but overall I still think he was excellent
Sure it needs a follow-up because the story is not over. There hasn't been a resolve to the whole scheme of things yet. I just hope the last book holds more interest.
Action packed, Characters to identify with, Captivating story line... Sorry that was three phrases...lol
Sir Andrew. He still so much wants to see the good in humanity no matter how bad the person or situation is.
Excellent narrator. i would give him 10 stars if possible. Voice characterization, appropriate speed of narration and rise and fall of the voice to induce mood and excitement.
Not really. Only moments of extreme suspense and relief
I liked that it was a relatively short book because it was so captivating that I wanted to finish the whole thing as quickly as possible. I'm definitely gonna get the next 2.
My only dislike is that it ended a little abruptly in suspense and it is not an independent book. A person MUST get the other books to find real resolve in the story, but I guess that's the point of a series?...lol
No I would not recommend it to a friend. It was too predictable.
No. His writing doesn't seem to be mature.
No. He read as if he was reading to himself. There was no voice characterization or change between characters. If it wasn't for all the "he said and she said", I would know which character was speaking. There was a lot of noticeable "he said she said" it was pretty annoying.
Noooo... Please no...
It may be 3rd in line. I preferred Warbreaker by Sanderson only because I like colour.
Vin was my favorite because she had what we all strive for in the human spirit. No matter how bad things are or where we come from, we can always find a way to raise up.
Not really. Too much gray with ash and soot for me...
Micheal Kramer is an awesome narrator.
It ranks as good. I'm looking forward to the movie. I hope the movie is great. With that said, its only because I prefer sci-fi to be more on an epic scale with mind blowing special effects rather than in a cave. I'm looking forward to see how the cinematography and special effects are brings the visuals to life
When all three males in her life anchored themselves to her, while on their way with Jeb, all staking their own claims to her. Its been a while since I read it (sorry)
I cried when Ian realized that she intended to leave earth.
Great story, however, I could not identify with the leading characters simply because of my age. It seems more suitable to young adults which is obvious but great story.
Ama and the uncle meeting in the swamp. It was such a point of revelation into more depth in the story and a turning point in my direction of thinking.
I love the scene with Ama in the cemetery when her true feelings of love for the boy comes to light.
Never knowing or being able to guess what would happen next.
None yet, I'm new to audible and am finding it hard to pull myself away sometimes. I do like sci-fi /fantasy and this was a good one.
For the main characters he was excellent. I did not like the speed of his tone though, I found it very frustrating in the beginning, however, once I sped up the speed of his reading to 1.25x, it was a lot more interesting and fulfilling.
Yes, I wish I could.
