I always found tolkien to be a bit hard for kids to grasp. my son, now 8, loves this audio version! its very enjoyable and loses none of the tolkien magic. adults will have a hard time stopping listening as it is very mesmerising and well done.
When I read the Game of Thrones books I tended to daze off which is why I purchased the audiobooks. Roy Dotrice is an excellent reader and keeps the stories well paced and lively.
Anyone wanting to compare the voices to the show will be disappointed, but the books are so well read, you'll lose yourself easily.
Most enjoyable listens!!!
This story is great,however, the white noise in the background is distracting and very annoying. Read the books if you can get them in the States rather than waste a credit on terrible audio quality!
This book held me spellbound for hours every day that I listened to it. I was skeptical of all the
"vampire-hype" books- but this was a gorgeous aural surprise.
Characters were so well written and the journey of the book was truly gripping and well written!
Highly recommended by a friend- I will always heed her recommendations.
My son LOVES this book! he has listened to this book multiple times and has never tired of it.
he read the book alongside and enjoys the mystery and closeness of cass and max earnest. the story is exceptionally well paced and written. we look forward to the narrator's next project of if you're reading this its too late.
a quality recording with inflections and emotions.
This was an absolutely enthralling audiobook! I have listened to it more than once just to be swept away to the lower depths of the opera. I would recommend this to anyone who loves mystery, romance, redemption, and most of all emotive responses to love. Give it a try- you will not be disappointed!
my son loves to listen to audiobooks while he's reading the book alongside. lynn redgrave's narration is diverse and consistent.
the book is very easily slipped into and you are lured into the sequels. funke has poetry that is missing from the original german
versions into english, too bad as it lends more to the feel of the story. is it just me me or is the word 'incredulous' overused?
no matter, this book is well read and will be well loved.
