I don't like to read, but I do like to be read to. Mostly here to get less dumb.

    Some of the parchment pages were the color of cream, thick and substantial, made to last many, many lifetimes. Other pages were thin and desiccated, positively yellow from age, and crackled alarmingly as Van Richten turned them over. There were no ornate illuminations, no fussy borders, only lines of plain text in hard black ink. The flowing handwriting was a bit difficult to follow at first; the writer's style of calligraphy had not been in common use for three hundred years.

    Jason says: "Great Fantasy for Gamers (And Non-Gamers)"

    Where does I, Strahd: The War Against Azalin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was surprisingly well-written,and the performance was fantastic. Overall, it is among one of the better 'books-on-tape' I have listened to. It is on par with the "I, Strahd" book before it, with a little more agency.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Given that the character of Strahd has a more palpable antagonist in Azalin, I would say that their relationship (one of protagonist and antagonist) is well represented, and adds enjoyment to the audio book as a whole.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

    While Strahd stands out, I would say Mr. Boehmer's performance as Azalin stands out as a rather devious villain. Despite Strahd's own failings, the lich is even more of a "heel" thanks to the reader's performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As an avid gamer of both tabletop and video RPG's, I have to say that this 'book' gave much inspiration in my own works of fiction. Both Strahd and Azalin represent two powerful, albeit different, undead foils to each other.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was third in the series, as I am hesitant to commit to other Ravenloft fiction not written by the author.
