    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Overall

    I've been reading this series for years now and enjoyed it greatly, though I do hope it comes to an end soon. This production is very good especially as it is an Unabridged version which I believe the books need. The two voices are good and give a good range to the characters, the only quibble I have is minor, I wish the two readers had agreed on pronunciations before starting. This is not a big issue and did not spoil my enjoyment. I believe the producers will be making all the books available and I look found to collecting them all.

    This may have been a good compilation with some good tales. However, it is hard to tell because some or the vocal talents selected are absolutely awful. It is hard to build up a sense of tension when the voice delivers everything in such a monotone.

    Ever since she was a tiny child, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the random power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who won't stay dead. But now her father, the Mage Abhorsen, is missing, and to find him Sabriel must cross back into that world.

    Overall

    This book is classed as a children's novel. Don't let this put you off. At times the writing is fairly simple and the story is not overly complicated. Despite this the book is a very good listen, helped by the always wonderful vocal talents of Tim Curry. I just hope that Audible get round to making the rest of the series available

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Overall

    If you've ever read the book you'll know what to expect from this recording. My comments are more about the voice production. For the most part these are good, though some of the better voices seen underused. However, the woman who reads the part of Valetine is terrible, she removes all sense of caring from the role. Fortunately in this book this is a minor role, I just hope Audible never use her again as I would have to avoid her.
