The artist voices have no separation. Cannot tell when switching between narration and dialog, it all sounds the same. I will not buy another book read by this “talent”
Yes, listen to a different book.
The recording talent lacks versatility. does not have the depth of characters to bring this too life. sounds forced and fake.
The performance was very good, but the religion history was hard to follow. Found myself just waiting for it be over to get back to the action. Hard to pay attention.
I was really enjoying this book until it got bogged down in Sumerian and Babylonian religious history.
This is the 5th book I've had from Sanderson and I do love his stories.
This had a new reader, James Yaegashi, who does not measure up. Very limited in voices and range of characters. Resorts to sounding like a "valley girl/guy," does not fit into the story.
Should have stuck with Michael Kramer. He had great range and very distinct voices without being annoying.
Hope Sanderson brings back Kramer for the rest of the series.
