Thou I am only about a half dozen books into the Disc "World" ( All by the way good listens) I have to say I was very happy to hear more about Mr. Moist VanLipwig. This was a very fast pased and funny story. With more twist and Toppsy Turvy moments than I had hope. Thank you Miss. Pratchett and Audible for the laughs in my day.
It took me learning more about Granny Weatherwax before I was able to enjoy this story. So I would suggest listening to Wyrd Sisters and Witches Abroad first to get to know the Granny first.
Given more background to have more sympathy for characters
I'm just an audio learner and any reading aloud sticks with me more then on the page.
continue with discworld series
fascinating, human, driven
The whole Ender's game and Ender's shadow series and side books are an excellent look at humanity.
Remember the enemies gate is down.
not sure but would love to see a true solid adaptation is done
If you've fallowed the endervers this far, you really should here this one. I'm sure it was Mr. Card meaning, but the further in the endervers I get the more time I spend thinking of the deeper issues of self he raises. This is someing I think only a excelent story that maybe fiction, but contains a grain of real truth can do.
All I can say is this is another well wirtten and preformed piece of the Alvin Maker Story. Thou Mr. Card is clearly a master of novels of all kinds, he gives us here something far better than a Journeyman's piece.
I read this book first before I listened to it. I really enjoyed the royal politics, and political manuvering, but had to mentaly adjust the ages of the children up 5 years to make it feel more inline with the presant idea of childhood. I Would not suggest this series for younger readers, but have still found it one I've been drawn into.
If you liked Ender's Game this is an Excelete addition. I found it added something to see some common evvents threw a second set of eyes. Plus beans backstory made me eger to listen to the rest of the shadow series. Once again great work Mr. Card
The Wheel of time is probely one of the best book series ever, but A Crown of Swords is not the best of it. Following the fight at Dumis Wells I had hoped we would get a great high impact addition to the series, and we got a good but not great story that added more plot twist and problems that seemed forced in. It is still a good adition to a very complex tale that has me completely drawn in. I just hoped for a little more.
