I will say of all the books that I have purchased from Audible, this is certainly the worst when it comes to sound. While I think the narrator does a good job, the other noises (being swallowing, etc), can be a little distracting. That being said I also think it depends on how you listen. If you are listening to your book with headphones you will notice it a lot more. I however listen in my car on the way to work and it was not that bad.
In the end, the book is worth the irritation of the sound. The narrator does have a good voice for the book, it's just to bad the sound engineer did not do his job. Still I highly recommend the book.
This is just a fantastic series.
While I had read the series as a trilogy (there is now a forth book I was not even aware existed until searching today), the narration given by Dick Hill just is amazing. At this point he is one of my favorite narrators. I had first heard him on Shooter: The Autobiography of the Top-Ranked Marine Sniper, and his voice moving to the science fiction genre was a little hard for me to get used too. That being said, I did and his narrative of Terry Brooks work is amazing.
The series itself is a tale that will allow you to step into the shoes of Ben Holiday, the main character. I felt at times that the character was speaking about life in general in our times. Fast paced, full of life stresses, etc. Leaving to the land of Landover leaves us all with something to dream of.
Hope you like it as much as I.
