Publisher's Summary

Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

No one expected them to be heroes.

Least of all, them.

    Story
    "A Blast From the Past, and Well Worth It"

    I have not read the Dragonlance novels since they were first published, and this format was a real treat.

    I commute 3 hours per day, and this book filled up about two weeks of driving very well.

    I have already purchased the second novel in the series.

    The narration is very good, but the narrator does have a few pronunciation oddities.

    Story
    "Worst narration I have ever heard on audible"
    What would have made Dragons of Autumn Twilight better?

    The narration makes this book even less appealing. To be honest, it has not well stood the test of time. The writing itself is not good, the narration is grating. When I first read these books when they came out, I was much younger and was so excited about the story.m today, I can really tell that this was the first book written by the authors and that they were learning by doing.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The constant use of adjectives to describe how the characters are talking is poor. The dialogue itself and other context should be all that is needed, with perhaps the rare use of an adjective. Instead, it seems that the way the character is speaking is constantly descibed.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He reads like a robot with pauses between words. If someone told me that this was actually not a human but a automated voice program, I would believe them. Even his character voices are terrible. Made it terrible and painful to listen to.


    What character would you cut from Dragons of Autumn Twilight?

    All are such stereotypes that none of the even matter,


    Any additional comments?

    Pass on this. Even if you have fond memories of the books from your younger days, the narration is so bad that you will wonder why you liked them at all.

    Story
    "Reliving my first ever Trilogy!"

    This story takes me back to when I was early teenager. Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman where the benchmarks of all future science fiction based on this original trilogy: The Dragonlance Chronicles. Are used to play Dungeons & Dragons, and I Imagined my favorite character as Raistlin. The narration is very good, and I hope others joy the series as much as I have over my life.

    Story
    "Wow that was bad."

    The story is just as hokey as I remember from 30 years ago. That's not the problem.

    As for the narrator, I can only hope he was not programmed to feel pain. Maybe then it won't hurt when they update his speech module to something made in the '90s, at least.

    Story
    "Is this read by an alien?"

    I've always loved this book series, so I downloaded the first book as a kind of birthday gift to myself. The story itself is as engaging and imaginative as I remember. The authors really worked some magic to bring this classic story to life.

    However, the guy who reads this book sounds like an android with a bad grammar motivator. Or maybe an alien who, having never read a book before, decided to get a job reading one. It's about as enjoyable as listening to a William Shatner impersonator read it. It's a constant war to try and stay wrapped up in the story.

    Overall it's a great book with a sweeping, grand story. The characters are memorable and endearing, each with a rich, deep background. I would normally recommend it, but not with discount Christopher Walken reading it.
