    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would most certainly recommend this book to any fantasy fan. If you are not familiar with Robert Silverberg world of Maijpoor he provided enough of a back story to help the listener understand the history of the people and their motivations. Stephen King is dead on with his side tale of Roland’s adventure with the Sisters. In my opinion his story is classic Dark Tower writing and fits well into the universe of a world that has “moved on”.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legends?

    The most memorable moment for me was having had read the book when it first published I gained a better understanding of the ending of the “The Seventh Shrine”.


    Have you listened to any of Frank Muller and Sam Tsoutsouvas ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Frank Muller is audio royalty in my opinion. It was his narration of several of the Dark Tower books and The Talisman that got me hooked on audio books. Sam Tsoutsouvas’s rich voice and clear narration gave a depth to the story that I missed when I read the book.


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

    I had no extreme reactions to the story other than a really enjoyed the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I had read this book when it was published over the course of a few plane trips. At the time I was also reading the Dark Tower series, so I was interged with the Sisters story and how it fit in. However I was also unfamiliar with Robert Silverberg’s work, so I have to admit I was lost by the end of it. With the great reading by Sam Tsoutsouvas I got a lot more out of the story this around and may even revisit Robert Silverberg’s world of Maijpoor again to see what other adventures Lord Valentine finds himself in.
