    Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

    Where does Dragons of Autumn Twilight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    in the top right now :)


    What did you like best about this story?

    raistlin ofc :P
    but the best part is no doubt when the big red dragon defend the human becouse she think of her children, the end of that fight just makes your jaw kinda fall, its soo well written and narrated


    Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    the narrator is amazingly good, his woman voices could be better but hey his a guy, besides that he is extremely good so much soul into the charecters :D
    but no havent heard anything else with him yet but i diffinately will


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    not sure.. there is alot of good once.


    Any additional comments?

    awesome narrator.

Free because of Richard's sacrifice for her, but unwilling to abandon the cause of the Midlands, Kahlan violates not only prophecy but her last pledge to Richard and raises an army against the advancing horde of the Imperial Order.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Faith of the Fallen to be better than the print version?

    only have the audible one


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Faith of the Fallen?

    when richards statue is revealed and the reaction on it.


    What does John Kenneth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the relaxation of not having to read it myself. he does a good job with voices, moods and situations making it a good listend.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    its a 35hours book so no, but over a week or so, it was really entertaining


    Any additional comments?

    its one of the best books in the serie so far, it does a very good job of keeping within its focus and thereby keeping your interest in whats going on to the max, it describes the scenes extremely well and there is little in this book that i could complain about.
    the ending of it seems a bit rushed though and its a bit anti climatix of how he overcomes the last "enemy" of the book, there was a real oppotunity to make a epic mage battle and instead we get a fight which equels to 2 90's years old man trying to fight it out (real life scenerio) which is just a sad sad ending fight.

    the developement of nicky and the view of the life in the emperial order is just amazingly well written and thought up, you constantly catch yourself just wanting to twist her head of due to her complete lack of any logic in her world view and it reminds me alot of discussing politics with some people, it does a very good job of showing how a world view even as twisted as hers is created and maintained.

    all in all its diffinately worth the time to listend too it.

    Now it has become terrifyingly clear that the Chimes have the potential to bring down all that Richard and Kahlan have worked to protect, and even the power of the Sword of Truth may not be enough to stem the tide of their unleashed magical force. But if the Chimes cannot be stopped, first they will ravage Richard and Kahlan, then all of D'Hara, and then the entire world.

    What would have made Soul of the Fire better?

    they used half the book on explaining about a country which should have had less then 30min for the story to be told -.- only got half way through the book. found it very bad. the story was extremely slow and the chimes made absolutely no sense (so they where made to combat magic in a time where EVERY mage had both types, but they doesnt remove sub magic o.O say what, then they are completely useless in the time when they was made..)..

    besides that there are too many stupid decisions made which makes little sense, and almost nothing happens for the first 12hours....

    will skip the last half and just go on to the next one

    The dangerous, fanatical Imperial Order, under the leadership of the power-mad Emperor Jagang and his multitude of demonic underlings, unleashes a deadly plague. To find a cure, Richard Cypher and his beloved Kahlan Amnell must seek out the legendary Temple of the Winds, a fortress of evil sealed away for three thousand years. But the path of the Seeker of Truth is never an easy one - even if he can reach the Temple at all, there is no guarantee he'll ever return.

    What made the experience of listening to Temple of the Winds the most enjoyable?

    An awesome story, there was a few parts of it I found ”weird” and some i found annoying (when the hell will Richard learn actual magic, and when at last he gets it it’s taken away goddammit :P )
    But I really like how it’s an enemy which is not so easy to simply “kill” although as said “giving him awesome magic and then taking it away” that is just a douche move.
    The ending is really nice and wraps it up nicely.

    (he mispronounce kahlans name but you get over this really easily just remember colling is kahlan and you will be fine. the narrator is good besides that)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    richard when he is in the tample


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    the spirits, really awesomely done with the sound effects


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes, nathen when they get the book to him.

    Would you listen to Wizard's First Rule again? Why?

    maybe. its very long and i rarely listen or read things twice, but it is good enough to an extra listen


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    darken rule (or however its spelled) or dana which is also amazingly charecterised.


    Which character – as performed by Sam Tsoutsouvas – was your favorite?

    dana i think, but he did an amazing job with all of them, so much soul into them, wish he would have narrated all the books


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes, the end of dana.
    and when kalim tells richard that they can never be together.
    l


    Any additional comments?

    amazing narrator, and lovely story. there was one point with dana and her "godlike magic" which i found annoying becouse it wasnt explained at all and you knew nothing about that kinda ability before her, making it seem really misplaced but it is ok since she ended up having some really touching scenes and added alot to the end of the story.

    its my second, but the reader didnt do a very good job giving life to the book. book is very good though


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    RAISTLIN ofc.


    What didn’t you like about Chris Sorensen’s performance?

    was very blend in his way of speaking throughout the book, didnt bring much charecter to the charecters in the book which was a bit sad, he did enough though for it to be ok and still a good listend.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. the last encounter with the red dragon, i was amazed of how well they tired it together and how perfectly they get this part ended, i couldnt have found a better way to do it. and it took me completely of my feets how well they did it :D


    Any additional comments?

    the book is a must if you are intriged by raistlin or his story :)
