    "good book"

    Ok so the second book with Jim Bond was bad, and I read the review on this book and was worried.....but after listening I don't understand the hate for the narrator.... he says names correctly at least the ones I read complaints about I didn't hear him mix names up or say the same name differently.... I'm not sure if those were old reviews but I just didn't see the issue, he only says the name of the confessors city wrong but Jim Bond did also. I'd say if you made it through book two this guy is like gold!

    the story wasn't bad it was a solid book in the series

    "Great Story, LOVE this series!"

    Don't know if I got a different narrator than other reviewers, but I did not notice any of the problems mentioned. Maybe not quite as good as the first two, but no issues and I could get into the story just fine. I LOVE the Sword of Truth series! I've read the whole series about for times and now once through on audio books so I can listen to it while I work. So far very happy with audibles and my experience!

    "So far, so amazing!"
    Would you listen to Blood of the Fold again? Why?

    I would find it really hard to listen to this again because of the narrator. Sam Tsoutsouvas is the only one so far that has really captured my attention at every corner. I fell asleep too many times to this book because the author sounded less into it than the other two books.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He puts me to sleep, really fast.


    Any additional comments?

    If you made it through book one, you can't stop at book 2. Definitely continue on past 3. This is just the epic adventure I needed in life.

    "Great story..."
    What did you love best about Blood of the Fold?

    The story


    What did you like best about this story?

    How small details from previous books end up in this story, with more detail


    What about Buck Schirner’s performance did you like?

    The chuckle in his voice when he voices Zed.


    Any additional comments?

    There are many comments about Schirner's narration. I preferred his narration over the one used for book 2. I am now into Book 4 (Temple of the Winds) and I am finding that narrator much more challenging to endure. I enjoyed Schirner's interpretation of different people.

    "i can't wait to read the next book of this series!"

    I'm completely enthralled in this series. from the very beginning of book one the depth of the story had built and the details are absolutely addicting. the characters and story line are so masterfully built that I can get lost in the story.

    "Great story continuation. Reader is better!"

    I am pissed that people complained about this reader. I almost didn't buy the book based on those reviews but I am very happy I did. This reader is much better than the second. excellent story and performance.

    "Great story/Bad narration"

    I love the series and this book in particular but I could barely deal with the narration. I won't be purchasing another book by this narrator.

    "Outstanding book"

    Third book in the series, first book to get good voice acting! The additional depth of characters in this book makes it an interesting read. Feels much shorter than it is because you don't realize how much you listen to at a time!
