    Story
    "Good story marred by odd non-standard pronuncation"
    What made the experience of listening to Dragons of a Fallen Sun the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the story - as I have all of Weis and Hickman's previous Dragonlance stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storytelling, the chance to visit old, well loved, characters


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Learn how to pronounce "glower" (it rhymes with "flower.")

    There are a few other fairly common English words that she has cringeworthy non-standard pronunciations, but "glower" is the most common.

    Story
    "Well written, well read"
    What did you love best about Dragons of a Fallen Sun?

    There's something different in this new trilogy from the "classical" ones, the Chronicles and the Legends. The authors evidently decided that something different must be done to revitalize the brand. Herington's performance is very good, even though her portrayal of some of the elves is slightly comical (Samar for instance).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character is, and always will be, Laurana. Since the first trilogy, she stands apart because she grows as a person in a "believable" way. From elfmaiden to general and first class politician,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long. But the performer's reading was just about right, It is a pleasure to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll certainly buy the other two titles in the series. Eagerly anticipating Ax Norman's new versions of the Chrinicles. I'm sure he's done an excellent job.

    Story
    "Great story (so far). Narrator? Not so much..."
    Would you try another book from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman and/or Marieve Herington?

    Love the story - hate the narration on this one.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Marieve Herington’s performances?

    No. Her voice is beautiful but she should have listened to at least a little bit of the previous narrations. I think her pronunciation of "Majere" as "Majerry" is going to make me crazy before I finish this book!


    Was Dragons of a Fallen Sun worth the listening time?

    Haven't finished it yet. The story is intriguing - I just hope I can survive the narrator's mispronounciations.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was disappointed in the narrative. I like Margaret Weiss and have read and listened to several of her other titles, but this story has too much historical background woven into the story. It detracts and makes it confusing.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    This book was one of the very few I have not been able to finish. I would return it to get my credit back if I could.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Marieve Herington has the wrong voice for reading this kind of narrative. A children's book perhaps but not this.
    Also there is absolutely no flow to her reading. It is a monotonous stacato drone that is so irritating that I cannot listen for more than 15 minutes at a time without irritation. This takes away all possibility of involvement and enjoyment of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be removing the other titles in this series from my wish list.

    Story
    "Really bad"

    I buy these audiobooks for my mother who is blind, She has listened to the first three Dragonlance Chronicles books and the Legends Triology and she enjoyed them immensely. She was looking forward to the next series. Unfortunately she was unable to supply an accurate rating for the story since she was only able to listen to the first section of this book before giving up due to the dreary, unending drone of the narrators voice which was unbearably irritating. I will certainly not be downloading any more books narrated by Marieve Herington.
