I have read or listened to several Christie Golden books. She is a fantastic author and I strongly suggest her works to anyone interested in the Warcraft universe.
The narrator's attempt to give justice to some of the characters such as Garrosh Hellscream is so feeble, that it is border line hilarious. I have been tempted to skip over the parts where Garrosh is involved but keep listening in fear of missing a plot detail.
Read the book. Skip this particular audio book. The girl, although has a nice voice, she does not do any of the Orc or Tauren characters justice.
I had previously read the novel and now listened to the audio book. it was very well narrated. The story is just great following the events of how Darth Bane came to be.
This is a decent read but the story is ridiculously difficult to follow and would probably be best as an actual paperback novel.
Narrators voice makes it difficult to tell what characters are actually actually talking because they all sound like the same person.
I thread that this is one of the best rated epic fantasy series but as an audio book it falls short.
The story seems to be completely made up and does not follow the story what so ever.
Author needs to seriously play through the game before attempting to recreate the story in novel form.
Performance was ok at best. Characters we somewhat believable however, I get the impression that the narrator never played the games either.
No redeeming qualities in this book. I can not even finish it.
This is a Baldur's Gate flavored story with characters and locations from the game but does not justify the epic story that was the original game.
This was actually one of the better Warcraft stories out there. It begins slow but once the skin of the story has been peeled away, it just screams with intensity.
All of the characters were represented well.
Narrators performance as excellent. Very believable. It seems like he actually did some research before attempting to do the voices for each character.
Great listen, also a great read!
