    Story
    (1577)

    The veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above.

    Bo Laughlin says: "Great Book - Almost ruined by the narrator"
    "Good read, bad listen"
    Overall

    The story is very well written but horribly read.

    When I first started listening I thought something was wrong with my speakers. I am unable to listen more than 20 minutes before I MUST go to the hard copy.
    The narrator drones on and on. I have difficulty telling male voices from female voices. Richard's voice makes me think of John Wayne and the Mudpeople are depicted as native sometimes robotic, like they are speaking broken english, though they are in fact speaking in there own language and then being translated by Kahlan. I am disappointed to learn this narrator is used again in this series. His lack of emotion and pathetic attempt of the characters makes it a very hard story to follow.
    The story is very similar to WoT. But this narrator is no Michael Kramer. Jim Bond should keep to narrating westerns and mystery novels, keeping "The Duke" out of the middle ages.
    If the many other narrators are as horrible as Mr. Bond, it's a good thing I have the series in hardcover.....bring back Sam Tsoutsouvas PLEASE
    If I were reviewing the book itself I would have rated this story much higher. But as you can tell from my review, I am unable to enjoy this epic fantasy narrated by a man better suited for the westerns, mysteries and boring self help instruction books, he is better known for narrating.
