The story and narrator are both very good. Grabs your attention pretty quickly. Audible lists book 5 of the series but where are books 2-4?? Disappointing that I can't continue the story.
The story is of course great. But Terry Goodkind says he selected the narrator personally and I can't imagine why he selected this one. She sounds like a computer. You cannot tell who is talking when the characters have a conversation. So monotone and no voice changes to designate different people, or even male/female! I am terribly disappointed. I have been an audio reader for many years and have listened to hundreds of audio books and have endured bad narrators before, but never one as bad as this one! Completely ruins the story! Mr. Goodkind, what on earth were you thinking? There are so many wonderful narrators out there. Why didn't you stay with Sam Tsoutsouvas? Or if you wanted a female narrator, you should have gotten Kate Reading!
As with the other SOT books, it has a life lesson. That is what makes the SOT series so different and worthy when compared to other fantasy books.
Can't say because I don't want to give away a monumental moment that will have an impact on you even after the book is finished.
Sam is great in this narration.
Another world, but no one knew it existed. The adventures continue....
Well, this was a pretty big disappointment. Too many characters I don't care about, too much plot setup but very little moving the story forward, more bad things happening to my important characters, bad characters still not getting what they deserve, and it ended with cliffhangers in ever major plot area! It's like the story just got away from him, like a runaway elephant. Maybe he'll pull it back togther in Winds of Winter, but I don't think I care anymore. I waited too long for this drivel.
There have not been many books I couldn't finish, but this is one. The first 6 chapters were fighting a war we knew nothing about, had no investment in the cause, and no idea what that cause was. I have made it over a quarter of the way thru part 2 and I still have no idea what the war is about. The character names are so foreign and similar that I can't keep up with the characters. The narrator is very good. He's the only reason I stuck it out this far. But I just have to give up. I'm used to books with a lot of different characters, like WOT. But this one, I just don't understand 'who's on first and what's on second'!
I agree with most of the previous reviews. I cannot even finish it. Just killing, killing and more killing, by, and of, characters that don't mean anything.
