  • Stone of Tears: Sword of Truth, Book 2

    • UNABRIDGED (38 hrs and 32 mins)
    • By Terry Goodkind
    • Narrated By Jim Bond

    The veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above.

    Bo Laughlin says: "Great Book - Almost ruined by the narrator"
    "GREAT BOOK! Gawd Awful Narrator :-("
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I seldom leave ratings but ... This is the worst narrative I have yet to experience in my 4 years membership with Audible. The narration is mostly flat, without motion. At times mechanical. When characters change the voices are just strange.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Richard of course is my most favorite character. Although, he is quite foolish at times. The television series ruined this series of books. I have found weekly television serial a chopped and minced license of a TV director. I am glad I've found time to finally to experience the full series and delve in the full story as written by Terry Goodkind.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Bond?

    Sam Tsoutsouvas

    Do you think Stone of Tears needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, absolutely. This book needs a new reading.

    Any additional comments?

    For you members PLEASE a new narrator.

  • The Rithmatist

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Brandon Sanderson
    • Narrated By Michael Kramer
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings - merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles.

    Brandon says: "Beware of the chalk!"
    "Young Adult Book For Grown Ups Too!"
    What did you love best about The Rithmatist?

    A unique fresh storyline. Although this audience is for young adults this book will definitely appeal to readers of all ages.

    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a different, new version of our world. The young characters had depth and appeal. But what more can you expect from Brand Sanderson. Mr. Sanderson's ability to spin a tale is without bounds.

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

    Michael Kramer is a great story teller. His infection, ability to hold your interest with the book being read is great.

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

    I did have a few outbursts of laughter at the antics of the characters. There were moments of intense drama and more of intrigue that made this book a fast 6+ hours to complete. I did not want to stop listening.

    Any additional comments?

    There will definitely be a sequel or sequels. This book has the foundation of many more sequels to come.
