Having read the Amber series as each book was published, I have read them all many times, each time seeing something new. This rendition is better than reading the book myself.
Corwin has always been one of my literary heroes, in a similar vein to the reluctant heroes of Moorcock's work and to Howard's Conan. But Corwin's time on earth and his suffering takes us through a journey of his desire for the throne and his jealousy of his siblings becoming one man's development of compassion and duty.
Mr Juliani's performance gives the listener a variety of voices to suit the characters, always an important point for me. He brings to life not just the characters but the settings not matter how mundane or exoticv they are.

As the saga continues Corwin has the opportunity to revisit the past as reconstructured by his brother; rather than wallow in the regret of the past he sees how his brother Benedict has made good Corwin's mistakes. And so Corwin's journey continues, until corwin can grasp his dream.
Mr Juliani's performance in Nine Princes in Amber was inspiring and here he continues to deliver the story as though it were real life rather than fiction from a truly great author.
