A point to the story?
Minutes upon minutes of garble and unintelligent dialog. Unable to get a connection to a story that is all over the place. C
The change of voice and person is significant ant troubling. Using the same tone of voice and way of reading would make it much easier a listen.
Based on book 1 I ventured into book 2. But I'm thoroughly done with the series based on this example.
Better story, fewer characters.
No - but it will most likely make me avoid the authors of the book.
I don't know - I only managed to listen to an hour or so .....
I was weary of picking this to begin with - I should have gone with my intuition and leaving it be.
Characters, Magic, Consistency
Fay - Character went from uneducated farm girl grows into adulthood, responsibilities and learning. You follo how she grew from girl, to woman, to master of her own destiny. Had some great lines too.
YES!!! The whispering and low voices makes it impossible to listen and hear it all even a full volume, just to get ear-deafning yelling a few seconds later.
No - I listen mainly during my commute.
The series is one of the better - and while you'll have to listen to them in order, they build well upon each other.
Absolutely worth a while; from songs to accents that brings back memories of old songs and movies. The book was a walk down memory lane for those of us who grew up during the 70'ies and 80'ies and the acting bringing old favorites back to life was a big plus.
As an audio book, this was on the level of The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Lots of twists and turns and a voice that added a new dimension to the story.
No - first Wil Wheaton book. Not the last though.
"The only way to win the game is not to play"
I wasn't sure what I was getting into but I read good reviews and gave it a chance. Not regretting it a moment. Having been in the IT business since late 70'ies, the technology throw back was fun - added the pop-culture of my youth just made it a big home run.
No - at this point I think that will end my experience with either. I found myself zooming out several times during the read, but still it wasn't hard to follow - very repetitious.
If the story line is going to be as teenagy as this, then yes. It failed to describe a believable universe and personalities. Lots of other fantasy books covering the craft and other mythology seems to work better on so many other levels.
The audio was easily understood - good voice. But it was almost made child-like at times, making the voice change for each character may work at times - but not this time.
