The final book of the Chronicles of Dragon Lance. The Final battles of Good and Evil. It will end here, for good or ill, for at least most of the companions of our D&D tale. The War of the Lance completes. Magic, sneaking, spying, War, interpersonal conflicts, conflicts of morality and of the soul all in this book. It is still a great story even after all these years.
The narration however seemed to weaken. Characters and statements that should have been said with strength almost seem whiny. The narration itself is decent, but it feels as if the narrator did not take the time to consider the situation and the emotions behind the situation and instead just read the book. The characters even didn't have as much distinction between them as they did in the first and second books.
Re-record it with a narrator that isn't going to mispronounce half the names or attempt to add unnecessary drama by constantly pausing/starting/stopping. If it were a boat ride, I'd be sea-sick.
The BOOK is great.
Anyone that can read and speak English as their native language.
Not a single one.
As previously stated, the books are fantastic but I wouldn't be able to recommend this audiiobook unless it was re-recorded with a new narrator.
Love these 3 core books. It still makes me sad that there had to be an end to it. I love how descriptive the writers are in the thoughts and feelings of the characters.
Paul Boehmer is a good narrator. The only person who gave Tasslehoff a good voice in all the books.
The books are written from when the makers of D n D was being lead by the makers of the pen and paper game. TSR is missed but the products they created are still with us.
The narrator did so well I am going to listen to his other work just to enjoy him, well done.
