epic story. horrible narrator.
the narrator from the first book was GREAT, but the one in second book was iffy and this one is terrible. i fear how the next one will be if this trend continues.
the narations was done very well and the story was very interesting and i'm dying to get the next book so i can find out what will happen next for coat and kvothe for they seem two different people yet one person with different NAMES. my favorite charecter is Elodin who for some reason always make me think of Udahara from bleach. Both are cool characters who seem odd and more than half crazy yet for some reason you know they can kick damn near anyone's ass without breaking stride and only have to pause mid stride to defeat the rest.
as i said elodin has me interested to see if he will live up to the expectatioins i have for him, and Kvothe's journey was very interesting and I enjoyed the twist and turns of the plot.
The interactions between Coat and Bast always leave me confused. I'm dying to learn how they met and how their relationship actually is. at first i thought they were just mentor and student though Bast being one of the fey made that seem odd i could buy it because of Kvothe's reputation, but by the end i was not so sure it was quite that simple. I think there s more going on yet and we can expect many great and terrible things in the next book and we may even learn why Kvothe changed his NAME.
finally they found a decent narrator while he isn't as good as the one who did the first book he is a greatly appreciated change from the terrible narrators that did books 2,3,4. though i agree with other people this story isn't as good as the others though it still is ok.
I would rather be slashed open by a mirswith than listen to another book read by him. who would think to pronounce the name kahlan as "collin"? every time he says it is like sandpaper in my ear. Why is it that every narrator takes it as a personal challenge to be more annoying and worse suited to the task of reading the book than his predecessor? i love the books, but i don't know if i can grit my teeth and finish this one let alone get the next out of sheer terror of how bad the next narrator would be not that there is much room left to fall after this one terrible performance.
other than me dancing on my soap box about the delivery of the book i have to say the book is great but the audio book is BAD and requires a great devotion to the series and a serious reason to not simply read it yourself to be able to stomach it.
