This is my first read of one of Robin Hobbs' books. The foreshadowing of events is magnificent, as well as the character development. My major issue, is the lack of geographical knowledge, and perhaps that is because I have started with the wrong set of books.
As to the comments about the Narrator, I envision Dragons to have very different voices and pronunciations then we do, so the accent works for me.
If you are debating listening to this one, I suggest you give it a shot. I was unsure at first, and actually for several hours into it. But I couldn't stop. I could see the shadows of the future, but had to go on to see how it all came together. I'm looking forward to the next one.
The boys are back, and in the environment they do best in, Full of twists and turns to keep the reader off the track until things pull together for the characters. Masterfully written, competently narrated. I'll be listening to this again soon.
After the stresses of the previous 2 books, our heroes return to confront Seregil's past while selflessly serving Queen and Country. You have to read this one...
Star Trek's Q and Spock face off in a battle of wits and humor. Great for an intermission or just a short listen.
...and don't feel like starting into a new novel, then enjoy this and the original Spock vs. Q for some good fun between two of Star Trek's most notable characters.
You have to let your imagination run wild to envision the technology behind these futuristic troopers. Heinlein's words give you the ammo to do it properly.
Reading this, you will recognize overlapping events from other books as we explore the life of Master Harper Robinton. Just remember...singing and teaching are not all Harpers are good for.
After the stresses of the previous 2 books, our heroes return in service to Queen and Country. Much is learned of Seregil's past as he confronts the forces that have placed him in his new life.
Excellent tale, but didn't make the translation into audiobook as well as I had hoped, still very enjoyable. Once again, the voices I had put to characters as I read were not quite what the narrators give us.
I've listened to both the abridged and unabridged versions of this one, and the amount of detail lost is incredible. Well developed characters, and consistancy with the rest of the Ryanverse make this a absolute must read for any Clancy fan.
I love the story, and have read it hardcopy many times. I can't say that the narrator was a particularly great choice, but then that is because she didn't sound like the voices I gave to the characters as I read. Still, very enjoyable.
