He actually sounded like I imagine Sun Tsu would. It was like getting an interesting lecture from an experienced professor.
There were many very insightful statements that interested me greatly.
My only complaint was that in a few places, it was kind of glitchy...it repeated a few lines that were just said. I don't know if it was just my file or if it is a flaw in the audiobook itself.
Absolutely. My favorite thing about it is the voice acting. Rosalyn Landor's narration sounded odd at first. The pronunciation of some words and phrases were strange, but I soon got comfortable with it and found that it actually enhanced the feel of the setting and the culture of the drow. She is also exceptionally great at making each character sound distinct, without resorting to outlandish accents. She does both male and female voices well. I can't stress enough how the subtlety of her voices really enhances the listening experience. On top of an already fascinating story, this audiobook series is a must-have for R.A. Salvatore fans, as well as other sci-fi/fantasy lovers.
Not quite. I can't listen to audiobooks for much longer than 2-4 hours at a time. I get restless and lose concentration. This series really pushed the bounds of that though. I felt entranced by the story and character interactions.
It was funny overall, a few parts were just silly and not funny, but most of it kept me laughing. It did kind of drone on a bit with the repetitive parts.
The fluxuations in volume were annoying. He would be talking very softly so that I had to turn up the volume...then he would start talking loudly or some sound effect would blow my eardrums off.
