    Years ago, the magnificent dragon queen Tintaglia forged a bargain with the inhabitants of the treacherous Rain Wilds. In exchange for her protection against enemy invaders, the humans promised to protect an unhatched brood of dragons. But when the dragons emerged as weak and misshapen hatchlings unable to fend for themselves, dragonkind seemed doomed to extinction. When even Tintaglia deserted the crippled young dragons, the Rain Wilders abandoned the burden of caring for the destructive and ravenous creatures.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It sounded like the audio was sped up. She is talking way too fast. I can barely stand to listen to it. The other books in the series were not this bad.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    "Loved it!"

    Where does The Wise Man's Fear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is in the top 5 of all time favorite books.


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    Loved this guy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I never listen to any book all in one sitting that is this long... but every chance I had I was listening to it.

    For generations, the dragonriders had dedicated their lives to fighting Thread, the dreaded spores that periodically rained from the sky to ravage the land. On the backs of their magnificent telepathic dragons they flew to flame the deadly stuff out of the air before it could reach the planet's surface. But the greatest dream of the dragonriders was to find a way to eradicate Thread completely, so that never again would their beloved Pern be threatened with destruction.

    WMF says: "The Narration Would Make A Harper Weep"
    "Wonderful book, bad audio"
    Overall

    I have loved this book for years and couldn't wait for it to come out on audio.. but the narrator was terrible. He made Piemur sound like an idiot, and Master Robinton like a slow witted imbecile. I was very disappointed and could hardly tolerate listening to the end.
