The book follows the story where book 1 left off, and ends when you just want more! All 3 books are incredible well written, and the characters seems so real! The story is captivating, and in lack of a propper "page turner" expression for audiobooks I will have to call it a "sleep stealer", I can not tell you how many times I had to extend the sleep timer another 30 minutes :)
As it is a part of a trilogy inside the The Sword of Truth series it would be perfect to listen to again when you revisit the series.
The entire backdrop of this trilogy is very exciting, there is alot of revisiting of characters from previous books. It keeps true to the main story line, the quest for unity, peace and freedom. Also the ever evolving journy of Richard Rahl. This book especially deals with alot of the questions you have from book one, but it still keeps you on the edge of your seat. You just want to hurry up and finish it so you can start on book three and the conclusion to this series.
He does not have the same broad specter of dialects and tones to differentiate different characters. Previous narrators have done a better job. But the main problem of a series this long is that it is near to impossible to keep the same narrator for the entire series. I have heard Zed's voice in alot of different ways so far, and you can not really get a feel for a character just based on its voice in The Sword of Truth Series. That being said I must say I enjoy Sam's deep voice, it is very pleasant and the small changes he does for the different characters is enough to know the difference, I feel now in book 3 that I can start to distinguish the difference on characters based on his twist on them.
If I could I would! I sneak in as much time as possible during my day to listen to books, and this one was very captivating indeed!
If I could chose a narrator I would go for Nick Poedehl, his performance of Kingkiller Chronicles day 1 is SUPERB!
