Yes, the print version was just moving too slow for me.
Yes, a review at the beginning of the book would have been helpful.
Yes, narration was good, lots of description
Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy Terry Brooks books. This story was just a little slow for me. I started with the book and stopped. I had to start again with the audio and once it got going it really took off. Thats why I can give it a 4 overall.
Detailed intruiquing storyline
Tungdil. Consistency in character growth
Voices were great and appropriate. Added to the excitement, suspense and humor of the novel.
Yes, I wish I could have.
I read and listen to several books at once, (same approx time frame) I hop from one to another because its take alot to hold my attention. This book was one that I had read several years ago and was excited to be able to have it on audio. It held my attention so much that I couldnt listen or read anything else until it was finished. The orignal book was written in German and translated to English. Even though I remembered the story line, the audio had me completely captivated. The reader helped with prononciation of several names and places that I had difficulty interpreting when I read the book. It really made a difference. There are 2 more books available in the series and I really hope these get recorded as well. If you're a fan of LOTR or Hobbit, you will enjoy. I loved it.
