    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm not sure if this reading seems so horrible to me because of the abridgement or if it was the narrator, or both. I love this story and have read it several times, but the abridgement just didn't do it any justice. It seemed like all of the excitement and magic of the story were lost when it was abridged. The reading seems rather flat and boring as well. If this was my only introduction to this book or Terry Brooks I probably would not read any of the other books.


    If you’ve listened to books by Terry Brooks before, how does this one compare?

    Very poorly, especially when compared to the unabridged version.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Theodore Bikel?

    I don't know. I'm not sure that I would have necessarily picked anyone else, I just couldn't get into the book. I didn't even finish listening to it because it was so frustrating.


    What character would you cut from The Scions of Shannara?

    None of them


    Any additional comments?

    Please get the unabridged version of this entire series. I'm trying to find it via amazon or something so I can listen to the full story, but I would rather get it through audible and have them all in this library.

    The Legend of Beka Cooper gives Tamora Pierce's fans exactly what they want - a smart and savvy heroine making a name for herself on the mean streets of Tortall's Lower City - while offering plenty of appeal for new readers as well. From the Hardcover edition.
