It was my understanding that this takes place at the very beginning of the Jedi Order. It feels like the ancient order has been established for quite sometime in this novel. It is definitely before the Jedi Order of the films, however I was looking towards something that may have been a little less technically advanced. It still feels like a Star Wars universe for something that takes place at least 25,000 years before Luke Skywalker.
N/A. This is the first book by Lebbon I have read.
I do not care for January LaVoy as narrator. Her voice annoys me. Surely there is a better female narrator out there?
I used to read these letters in college. Then (20 years ago) I enjoyed the literature and found it arousing. This seemed vulgar and like it had been written by high school students. It was the worst decision I have made on audible so far. I will not try this genre again.
A better narrator for sure!
Personally, I just found the narrators dialect very annoying and I live in the south.
I didn't get far enough into the story to make this decision.
Honestly, I only made it approximately 10 minutes into the performance. I couldn't stand the narrator. The plot didn't really begin to move in the first 10 minutes. There was too much focus on back story development and a whole lot of lack on trying to develop the main character. The author couldn't snag my attention.
I have never read the print versions of any of the books in this series.
I really like that the characters of Rand and Matt, and the women from Emond's Field in the Two Rivers are becoming fuller. The character development in this book, compared to the previous ones, is much more in depth.
Yes. I still love and enjoy the performance by Michael Kramer. His familiarity with the characters is growing with his performance. Kramer delivers excellence in portraying emotion of the characters that he reads for. He is, by far, way more talented that Kate Reading.
I wouldn't give it one.
The story is still Epic compared to the previous four. However, I did fine that this book dragged in places and felt a bit slower paced than the previous.
This story was exciting and kept me engaged the entire time. I loved the main character!
The best part was when the main character is on his own and doesn't realize he is being tested. He is a cool, collected, and calm military bezerker whom lays the SMACKDOWN!
Favorite scene is the same as above!
I'm not creative enough to come up with one.
This short story was so well paced and developed that it has encouraged me to buy more from this series. Great narration!
Yes. Detailed and thriving/exciting characters that you want to continue to follow and understand. The environment really makes you want to immerse yourself in the story.
Lord of the Rings. Unlikely heroes must journey on a quest that will probably result in them helping to save the world.
I did not enjoy Kate Reading's performance at all. Her voice annoys me and I find it harder to focus when she reads. Michael Kramer is fantastic and is great at providing a wide range of voices. I think that Kramer is at his best when performing the characters of Rand al Thor and Thomdril Merrilin.
The Dark One Stirs
Yes. Having seen the movie, I wish the original went further into the character development of Walter Mitty.
Not really. I was slightly disappointed by the performance. The story was not as developed enough for me to enjoy. Reading the movie adaptation would be much better and more enjoyable.
Michael Kramer. He is the best reader I have heard. A very good second choice is Jonathan Davis.
No. No point, it stands by itself.
