Very bizarre one this, downloaded trapped and hunted at the same time. Was a bit worried that Luke was not narrating. When I started listening to trapped it was Mr Ragland and was not impressed, half way through the first chapter though it switched to Luke Daniel's "bizarre" and he continued till the end.
Hunted was the same except it started with Luke then changed to Ragland for a very short time half way through. Most odd, not complaining though. This does mean that Audible has the book in both voices which is again strange.
Atticus and Oberon are fantastic characters, the story is never for a second dull and the pace is relentless. Love the way he manages to tie in all the God myths and bring them together. highly recommended read if you are a fan of urban fantasy or not. Oberon is just hilarious
Have just finished listening to the entire series, it was tough going though and considered many times letting it go, the one thing that kept me going through this was the story itself. Good concept, good characters if a bit rushed at time. The thing that let it down completely though was narration, it was by far the worst I have ever came across in all my many years on audible. The voices of each and every character where delivered in a style that can only be described as an astonished 5 year old, inflection was awful. Seriously, they had 80 year old, very wise and learned men with the voices of little kids. In order to get through I had to try and take each delivered sentence and imagine it as I would have read it rather than the awful way it was delivered by the narrator.
Would I recommend this, yes, but not in audible format. Go buy the book.
Many years of following the wheel as it turned have now culminated in the conclusion of one of its cycles, what a simply fantastic journey it has been. The conclusion was epic, with many, if not all the questions answered and cycles completed. Thank Mr Jordon and Mr Sanderson, you have given me and others a great deal of enjoyment and filled our lives with a rich and inspiring world.
Could it have been better, like all things in life of course it could have been. As work of literary fiction though it is one of the greatest ever written.
So jump onto the wheel as it turns towards Rand, Matt and Perrrin, revel in it as it spins its path through many twists and turns and then enter a new age at its conclusion. You will laugh, cry, get highly irritated by bickering women, curse the forsaken, mourn lost battles and friends and feel elated at the victories. You will though be left feeling your life is slightly emptier as the wheel enters the fourth age and you close the final page on the third.
If you follow Robert Jordan you are probably aware by now that he is currently fighting a life threatening disease and his family and fans face the prospect of loosing a literary genius. Robert Jordan has given fans of fantasy one of the great epics, as I write this I pray that he he is given the the time to write us an end for this great work and goes on to create many more. Many thanks Robert and may God speed you back to good health. Start at the beginning and read them all… some slow paced….. some fast….. some lows but many highs…. Overall, authorial brilliance.
