He just simply lacked the skill of a narrator. Didn't have the voice.
Narrator did, to write this review and I'm not even done.
Get a different narrator.
I loved the story, I read all of David Eddings books once every year. I can't let them go. He's by far my favorite author and I'm happy that audible has him and his wife on here. However the narrator is probably the worst I've ever heard.. you'd think that audible would check to make sure that the narrators have at least a little bit of talent or that the pronunciation between the two connecting trilogies is consistent at a bare minimum.
The Sapphire Rose. It's the opening book to the trilogy before this.
He had no narrating talent. His ability to differentiate between character voices was non existent. And he makes everyone in the book sound like a pompous ass.
Of course I would. But that's not because the narrator did a good job, because he didn't, it's because it's a splendid story. If this narrator was involved at all I'd skip the movie.
Please consider getting a new narrator for this trilogy. And get feedback from your customers or at least people who enjoy and/or read the books that you are paying narrators to narrate. People will be more than happy to give feedback than listen to a narrator who likes to narrate because he likes the sound of his own voice, not because he has talent, because Kevin Pariseau doesn't.
