Never read the print version.
I haven't reviewed many books. I felt I needed to with this particular book. The story was excellent. Some parts dragged a little bit, but Tim Gerard Reynolds's narration was one of the best that I have ever heard.
Too me, the narration is just as important as the story. After all... it is an audio book. Most of the fantasy narrators are over the top. Reynolds was spot on. Great work.
The narration was absolutely aweful.
The story was great. I just couldn't listen to the narrator pronounce Hashashin anymore. It was terrible.
Re-record the book with Paul Michael.
I don't review too many audio books. I stumbled across Theft of Swords about a year ago. I listened to the trilogy of books and when they were over, I found myself missing them. So I loaded the first book up on my iPod and started again. Four times through the series, I found that The Crown Tower was available.
The writing and narration are terrific. I hope that Mr. Sullivan will keep the series going. You have a lifelong fan.
Thank you very much.
I listen to audiobooks while at the gym, running, shopping and while doing yard work. There are few books that I can listen to over and over again. As soon as this book finished, I started the whole series over and I liked it better the second time. It has everything you would want in a great book series. Tim Gerard Reynolds is an excellent story teller and I couldn't recommend this book enough.
I wish HBO or Showtime would pick this up and make it into a series.
The story and interaction were not up to par. The premise was interesting, but the story was not able to hold my attention. It just dragged on. Wouldn't recommend. As usual, Paul Michael did a great job.
