A great story line and the narrator does a great job with the diverse range of characters.
The narrator does re-use some voices but with so many key players it would be hard for anyone to do better.
How George managed to keep this story line in place and not get lost is amazing.
All the Song of Ice and Fire Series.
Tad Williams: Shadowmarch
Raymond E Fiest: All his
David Eddings: All his
Too hard to make a movie about this series, there is just to much happening.
The movie would be a week long
If you love fantasy epics this is for you
Yes, narrators do a really good job
Hard to compare but Belgariad, Ice and Fire, but not really???
The narrators make the story from a slow read to good listen...this keeps me going when driving all the time and a good narrator keeps it interesting.
Companions of the hall ride again!! The gang is back together and on the road to adventure!!
Drizzt, a shadow with swords
The story was great
Bruenor or Bonegar!!!
Looking forward to the next book in this series
I put the Doctor Who series as one because it would not be fair on all my other books!!
Yes and just as good
The theme music!
Am a bit of a Doctor Who tragic sorry
Top 30?? I have over 100 in my library and it is hard to decide.
Read the story in paperback years ago, just a good sci-fi story
Just a good read and now a good listen as well.
For those who like having a female character as the focus, this is another one to listen to.Having listened to the whole series available I can highly recommend this audio book. Finish this one and you won't be able to help yourself but download the rest of the series.
Kris Longknife is another great female character around which a whole universe of action can be created, much like Elizabeth Moon's Kylara Vatta or David Weber's Honor Harrington. All the Kris Longknife stories all have a similar structure but it works from beginning to end, leaving you wanting more. Can't wait for "Undaunted" to arrive on audio.
The reader does a good job with an erratic story that sounds more like an abridged version than not. I had to go back and re-listen to the story in case I had missed something, but there are just gaps in the storyline. I listened to it all the way through because I spent the money on it. Not recommended.
I prefer Sean Mangan doing the narration but that was because he did the "7 Ancient Wonders" and others for another audio company. Steven Pacey does pick up the "Matthew Reilly Feel" though with his fast pace and non stop action. Reilly is a true master of this style of writing.
