Absolutely. I'm somewhat of a difficult reader to impress in the short term. I usually take at least 1-1.5 books in a series before I start to love a character. I was hooked on this one after an hour of listening. It's a very short read, but it does not suffer from it.
....All of them?
I think it might be during the gun fight.
Need More Now.
The meeting of two of the characters (when it finally happens).
A good portion of this book will make your heart hurt, but it is worth it in the end. Bear with it. Now when is the next book?
Another Magical World
The ending (vague to protect from spoilers!)
This story was intriguing. I enjoyed the read a lot, but it is not my favorite of Sanderson's work. That should not be interpreted to mean "Don't read it," however.
The voice acting was amazing! I also really enjoyed the story.
I can't really say I have a favorite. They were all performed very well and each had their own distinct personality.
Stop reading after the main plot line resolves! The epilogue flounders, at best, and appears to go on forever.
Thrilling, Epic, Satisfying
It really stands alone but if you enjoyed Brandon Sanderson's completion of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, you should definitely check out his book series - Mistborn and Way of Kings.
Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are a fantastic narration team. Their characters are performed expertly with great separation and flow.
If you enjoyed the other 13 books in the series, expect to experience the full range of emotions in this epic conclusion.
The only problem with this book is its derivative and poorly thought out plot.
Wizard's First Rule is a generic take on the classic fantasy tale that asks too much of the reader's trust in believing the magical world he created.
Spoilers: Any world that includes magical items with the capacity to alter or destroy all life would never be treated so cavalierly. I still don't know what this book meant by putting these objects "into play."
The voices are well done and the words flow smoothly. I'd be interested in listening to more books read by Sam Tsoutsouvas.
Zeddicus Zu'l Zorrander. It seems his only purpose is to explain the magic system to the reader while blundering from one situation to another. It is hard to reconcile his legendary skill with his impotent appearances in this book.
Worth a read if you have nothing else in your queue.
I really enjoyed the inventiveness of the different species. Perhaps this is because I am new to the genre, but I find his world to be truly fascinating and unique compared to what I'm used to with Sci-Fi tv/movies.
I love all of his different voices.
I'd recommend this book to others... I found it to be a very entertaining read, as with the rest of the series.
While this still hasn't rivaled my favorite Dresden book, Changes, this is a solid win for me. There may have been one or two "plot holes" or inconsistencies that I had to use more than the average amount of suspension of disbelief, but the book was entertaining (which matters more to me).
James Marsters, as always, is wonderful.
Probably. The book was still entertaining.
I think that perhaps there is too much Oberon. Not that I don't love him, but the humor from Oberon has become more and more forced feeling. The humor used to be surprising and cute... now I find myself rolling my eyes and waiting for his lines to end.
As performed by Luke Daniels... I think I like Coyote the best, but I do love the way he performs everyone.
I'm not sure....books turned into movies have a habit of being underwhelming.
I enjoyed the story. I felt it was not as predictable as I believed it would be. I was surprised by many of the turns and ultimately happy with how the book ended.
Gin was my favorite because she, unlike many other female characters I've encountered, was very methodical and restrained.
I didn't have a favorite character (performance-wise). I felt that Lauren Fortgang did a very good job illustrating the differences in the characters and helping show their personalities.
Not always, but it was pretty close. I really enjoyed listening to this book, and I am normally watching/reading many different series/books at a time because I require different mediums (audiobook, kindle, hard copy). This book became a front runner for me out of the three different books I was switching between.
