The story was as spellbinding to me as the last two, but to not have Brendan Fraser as the narrator was a major disappointment!!! I'm sure Mr. Corduner is good with other works, but he didn't even TRY to match the voices Brendan had established in the previous books. The Black Prince had a high wimpy voice, Fenolio was suddenly changed from New Yorker-ish to Russian, Orpheus went from Southern to British, Roxanne and Brianna went from French to the same general part of the world as Fenolio! Very frustrating. It even made me hate hearing Meggie after a while; she was so whiny and nasally. On the plus side, he did well with Eleanor; she was annoyingly whiny and nasally already! Sigh. Please get Brendan back for any more or at least someone similar!
but the narrator really leaves a lot to be desired! After the last 5 having been masterfully rendered by Marguerite Gavin, it's very grating to hear Gigi Bermingham mispronounce Piscary, ley lines and to hear totally different voices for familiar characters! Since when has Keesley (sp) had a deep southern accent? I'm disappointed with the narration, but Kim's got another winner w/the book, as far as I'm concerned! I'm sooo glad to have found such a great series!
