You can figure out how it is going to end seven days before it happens. And he takes a week to make it happen.
He could have written it in about one chapter instead of 50.
There is no suspense; you can figure out the plots, all of them, in the first few pages yet you have to wade through hours and hours of listening to get nowhere.
Once again a 49 hour listen that would have been fantastic at an hour long.
Plot-advances in baby steps per 40+hour book
I think he wrote a good book then ripped out every chapter and decided to write a 40 hour book out of each chapter.
Good reader-bad material
None of them would give them a kick in the rear to hurry things along though
Watch the movies
Once again 34 hours of my life wasted on a story that could have been told in 1.
Nothing bad to say about the reader, he did a great job.
The story is actually a good one but for the love of all that is good and holy get on with it!
Watch the movies.
Was thinking if you put the entire series in a 5 hour abridged version might not be to bad.
Not when the series is over. Have the type of personality I have to finish.
No, thought he did a great job reading though
Nope you know how the book is going to end and there is very little advancement of the overall plot.
Watch the shows, way better than wasting 100+ hours of your life.
George R. R. Never not happy I have to finish the series
Roy Dotrice Yes
Not wasted my time writing such a long boring book that never ends.
Roy is actually a fantastic reader. The voices and personalities he brings are fantastic.
The writer-of the books
Seriously no surprises, would have been a great book if told in an hour instead of 37
I am rarely surprised by endings to books, and hardly ever in a good way. You can guess all you want you will NEVER guess the ending. And yes it is better than any you could come up with-ever!
The amount of time spent laughing while the party was in tense situations.
All of the main ones. The voices he gives to the characters, I imagine would be the same ones I would have given them in my head while reading them.
Listened to over 15 SERIES so far and by far this was my favorite!
Riftwar saga without as much magic.
Once again the character interactions were superb, and funny.
You need to read this series.
Recommend to all
Both main characters. Never laughed so much at the interactions between two characters.
After the first hour of listening I forgot all about the reader, and just enjoyed the book. Great job
Might be a bit long but other than that yes I would.
