    As Richard fought to focus his mind on his need to remain conscious, the breathless voices sounded to him as if they were coming from some great, dim distance. He wasn't sure who they were. He knew that he knew them, but right then it just didn't seem to matter. He struggled to put voice to his burning concern, but he couldn't form the words, couldn't get out any more than a gasping moan.

    Would you try another book from Terry Goodkind and/or Jim Bond?

    Absolutely


    Would you be willing to try another book from Terry Goodkind? Why or why not?

    Absolutely. I've thoroughly enjoyed the Sword of Truth Series so far


    What aspect of Jim Bond’s performance would you have changed?

    Jim is a great narrator, but I think his performance could be improved with more emotion in his voice.


    Could you see Chainfire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Definitely not. I wonder if Chainfire was originally supposed to be only 1 book, but then became too long and was split up. However, it wasn't quite long enough so filler had to be added. There are many sections of the book where the character's thoughts are repeated over and over again.


    Any additional comments?

    For most of this book, I was very frustrated. Richard keeps getting beat down and can't catch a break. And with all of the repeated thoughts, I often just hoped the book would get on with it and get to a good part. If you've bought Chainfire, suffer through it; the ending picks up and makes it worth it. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely. I usually read/listen to fantasy books and love magic, dragons and the like. This series has magic, but is set in an alternate 1920-1930's world. Very well written, interesting dialog and witty characters. If you like magic and action, this series delivers!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hard Magic?

    The fight between Fay and Delila is very memorable, especially as Fay starts to figure out her magic.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the characters to life. A different voice for everyone, and injects excitement at all the right places.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at several spots. Jake Sullivan's understated comments always brought a chuckle.

Soon he learned that his alternate self had already been murdered, and that he was next. On Proton, his fate depended on winning the great Games. On Phaze, he must master magic to survive. And if he used any magic at all, his friends were determined to kill him at once!

    What made the experience of listening to Split Infinity the most enjoyable?

    I read the apprentice adept trilogy when I was a teenager and thoroughly enjoyed them. Now nearly 40, it was wonderful to listen to an audio version of the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Piers Anthony's style, the way he uses magic. This is a great series as it blends technology and magic.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It reminded me of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. The magic is there, but more subtle than in many other fantasy books. The main characters are interesting, and Sam Tsoutsouvas does a fantastic job of breathing life into the words.


    Which character – as performed by Sam Tsoutsouvas – was your favorite?

    I think I enjoyed Zed the most, but Richard and Kahlan are great too.
