    "Average book made worse with narrarion."

    This is one of those titles better read than listened to. I could not get into the narration. The narrator read with a lilting sing song style that was aggravating.
    I could almost have plowed on through, despite the narration, but was then hit with the full storyline and the annoyoing main character. I now realise the benefit of reading, as you can gloss over or skip the cloying lovey dovey garbage, and annoying inner monologes and get back to the story. Unfortunately when narrated, you are forced to listen to all the filler garbage that adds nothing to the story and becomes intollerable the longer you listen to it. How many times can you listen to the same self deprecating thoughts and actions be repeatedly expressed by the main character before it gets annoying?

    "I have to agree with Rowling "

    My 12 year old daughter and I "read" a lot of books. This was one that I enjoyed as much as she did! We can't wait to finish the books (yet don't want the story to end).

    Story
    "So much potential."

    This book made me so incredibly angry. The story line was good enough where I really wanted to keep going and find out what was going to happen next. The trouble was I hated to the main character. Thor was so naive and indecisive that I found myself screaming at the radio. He blunders from one thing to the next always managing to come out on top by some miracle. It's almost like Charlie Brown, from Peanuts fame, somehow stumbled into an adventure story was given magical powers, and you were forced to listen to his inner dialogue. I want to know what happens to him but I don't think I can sit through another.

    "Not worth it"
    What would have made A Quest of Heroes better?

    The audio, like all the books in this series is choppy. Was not happy even though I kept getting the next book book and the next...till I got fed up and pissed that I bought them or used credits for them

    "Sickly generic but fast listen"

    Childs novel, good relaxing read if you like to listen to audio and not think or be terribly engaged. Concerned series is so long as I hate not finishing a series

    "Is this really a whole book"
    What did you like best about A Quest of Heroes? What did you like least?

    Seems to me that the first and second book, in fact the most of the series is really just a single book. These books are broken into little and I mean really little peices, of the whole often ending in very poorly designed places in the story arch. I can only believe greed is to blame for why it's done this way. It's a good series but shouldn't be 5 books. Maybe 2 books but not 5

    "I'm not sure about this series yet"

    It's an ok storyline, a little predictable and the main character seems a little too naive to be a hero of any sort. The narration is ok. I think I'm going to risk the second book just to see if things improve any.
