    In The Swords of Lankhmar, a plague of rats overruns the capital city and glittering gem of the land of Nehwon. Commissioned to guard a ship of grain from the cursed rodents, brother-in-arms Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser soon discover the plague has progressed to a fatal point. Mustering the strength of sorcery, they descend into the depths of Lankhmar and rise to battle in order to save the soul of the ill-fated city.

    Where does The Swords of Lankhmar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    first, the reading of the book is excellent, the tone and flow of the smooth voice draw you away from reality if even just for a little while. second, the story is classic for this genre, it defines the genre.for the type of science fiction it represents it is a classic, one of the best.


    What other book might you compare The Swords of Lankhmar to and why?

    perhaps in a slightly different off shoot of older sci-fi "Old Man's War" by Scalzi or any number of Heinlein's early works.They have a certain quality about their story's, a richness and thoughtfulness.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis and Neil Gaiman – was your favorite?

    Each of the two main characters, one in his youthful strength and simplicity and the other in his more worldly less trusting "there is always an angle" approach, is rich in his own way, neither is a favorite, both are relived in my mind in my everyday pursuits.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    moved me? no but the development of the characters and the adventures they have together provide a rich memory that continues for me long after all of the books in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    real sci-fi readers, listeners, should not miss this book, this series.
