"A complex epic fantasy that crackles with vigor and magical derring-do." (Publishers Weekly)
"Buck Schirner is an adept reader, expert at rendering this vast, glittering tapestry of a world." (Library Journal)
Overall, this book was absolutely beautifully told and I would highly and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a story of a High Fantasy universe. Heroes and antiheroes, villains, monsters, Wizards, and a love across time. The only thing I can possibly knock on this is with the performance. And the only bad thing about it is the way the performer voices one of the monsters. I understand where he was going with it but it hurt my ears every time he did it. Other than that, I absolutely loved it.
I love this book. The performance was splendid! Character voices were consistent and entertaining. I have read the book before many years ago and I could not have been happier to hear it read to me. Great job!
The books themselves are awesome. However the narration could use some work. I guess maybe I can stand it cuz I've already read it. For those who can't stand the narration read the books cuz they are my favorites and the only books I've read twice.
I honestly believe that everyone should read these books because it's what's happening right now. To me they are an inspiration to get up and do something about the world we live in or end up in a war to be slaves.
This book, the 3rd book in the Sword of Truth series, was just as good as the first two! The story is compelling and well written.
While many other reviewers have commented on and complained about the mispronunciation of names in this production, I found that these differences did not detract from the performance. The reader did an excellent job differentiating between characters with his voice, kept a good pace, and made the story even more interesting!
I would definitely recommend both the boom and audiobook!
I have been battling with the bad narrators throughout this series. the first narrator Sam tsou...something was pretty good.. a little too dramatic for me, but the next guy that did number 2 oh... horrible. so it's nice to actually get a decent performance
