Absolutely. I've thoroughly enjoyed the Sword of Truth Series so far
Jim is a great narrator, but I think his performance could be improved with more emotion in his voice.
Definitely not. I wonder if Chainfire was originally supposed to be only 1 book, but then became too long and was split up. However, it wasn't quite long enough so filler had to be added. There are many sections of the book where the character's thoughts are repeated over and over again.
For most of this book, I was very frustrated. Richard keeps getting beat down and can't catch a break. And with all of the repeated thoughts, I often just hoped the book would get on with it and get to a good part. If you've bought Chainfire, suffer through it; the ending picks up and makes it worth it. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.
Definitely. I usually read/listen to fantasy books and love magic, dragons and the like. This series has magic, but is set in an alternate 1920-1930's world. Very well written, interesting dialog and witty characters. If you like magic and action, this series delivers!
The fight between Fay and Delila is very memorable, especially as Fay starts to figure out her magic.
He brings the characters to life. A different voice for everyone, and injects excitement at all the right places.
I laughed at several spots. Jake Sullivan's understated comments always brought a chuckle.
I read the apprentice adept trilogy when I was a teenager and thoroughly enjoyed them. Now nearly 40, it was wonderful to listen to an audio version of the series.
I like Piers Anthony's style, the way he uses magic. This is a great series as it blends technology and magic.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It reminded me of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. The magic is there, but more subtle than in many other fantasy books. The main characters are interesting, and Sam Tsoutsouvas does a fantastic job of breathing life into the words.
I think I enjoyed Zed the most, but Richard and Kahlan are great too.
