    Six years had passed since the redoubtable knight Sparhawk had triumphed over the evil God Azash and returned to Elenia with Queen Ehlana, his bride. And now a new danger had arisen to threaten the peace of Ehlana's realm. The trouble had started quietly. At home, bandits began to plague the hill country. In neighboring Lamorkand, the customary political unrest turned ominous with whispers that the bloody heroes of old soon would rise again.

    Overall

    As many of the other reviewers noted- the new narrator suddenly changes every pronunciation after 50 hours of the story (arguably certain names could have two readings but the word rouge is fairly standard) but couple that annoyance with the horrible voice and inflection of the narrator and what could be the start of a nice trilogy is ruined- I cannot finish this and surely would not buy any others in this series- the director and narrator could have maybe spent 5 minutes of research instead of this garbage.

    The Sixth Order wields the sword of justice and smites the enemies of the Faith and the Realm. Vaelin Al Sorna was only a child of 10 when his father left him at the iron gate of the Sixth Order. The Brothers of the Sixth Order are devoted to battle, and Vaelin will be trained and hardened to the austere, celibate, and dangerous life of a Warrior of the Faith. He has no family now save the Order.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Brand’s performances?

    I have to say, though he started well, Steven Brand sounded either over tired or like he was a little tipsy as the book progressed- awkward pauses as he found his place on the page, strange and disjointed - it really hurt an otherwise interesting book.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Mike Naka says: "bucket full of zombie juice"
    "Awful..."

    Any additional comments?

    So many horrible characters with no depth, logical inconsistencies such as the lead's backstory timeline doesn't make any sense...and just bad writing. No editing just a rambling piece of junk...

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Pi says: "Jarring change in Dotrice's performance"
    "Horrible narration"

    What didn’t you like about Roy Dotrice’s performance?

    Inconsistent voices and narrations, full of changing accents - not only varies from book to book but chapter to chapter so characters are poor and often sound the same and when there is dialogue it sounds like a monologue... lazy and shoddy.
