"High fantasy with a vengeance!" (San Diego Union-Tribune)
By the end of book three, my interest was so high I couldn't find enough time each day to listen what twists and turns would occur next. This is truly the best major book I have read sense Lord of the Rings. The dialogue is masterful.
Can be long-winded with unnecessary time spent on characters singing songs, etc. Narrator is difficult to get into if you are familiar with watching the HBO series.
Tell us about yourself! Hated reading books. It wasn't till I found audible that I found how great books can be.
This series is very good. A bit boring at times but deep with the interactions of the characters and surroundings. Well worth the credit.
One thing I noticed was the narrator in the last few hours seemed to be having trouble
when switching from one character to another. Many times I didn't
know who was talking and everybody sounded like Long John Silver.(Pirate) All and all I did enjoy this book but the narrator can make a great book sub-standard.
