By R.A. Salvatore yes, by Mark Bramhall no
the naration was just horrible, the pronunciation of things just sounded like it was being done horribly wrong to be sarcastic.
This whole trilogy needs to be re done with Victore Bevine and I will gladly rebuy em all.
Love ra salvatore
All the people fighting together
Nononononononononooooooo!!!!!!!!! I think he pronounces stuff wrong on purpose
I am finally done with the worst narrator ever. Don't change pronunciation of words just because you feel like it. Back to Victor bovine yay!!!
Finally on this last book in the series, I finally got used to the new narrator for the series, but it's still not the quality performance that Bevine accomplishes in the previous books.
It's so heartbreaking though. So heartbreaking.
I must start by saying how much I enjoyed this book. I have read all of Salvatore's series and books and was quick to jump on "Transitions" series when saw it on Audible.
I believe that this is Salvatore's darkest adventure for good ol' Drizzt Do'Urden ever. I am still shocked at the outcome. I won't say more as I do not wish to give anything away, but I am still blown away with how it ended.
I truly enjoyed the narrator and have added him to my list "of narrators to look for in the future list". And I hope to see more of the Salvatore line up in the future.
For years those of us who have followed this series have enjoyed learning all about various characters that come and go. It’s always to good to hear about them after some time. Here we meet Cadderly being pushed to help everyone with the unraveling of the magical weave. Yet, can he help?
We see the beginning of the undoing of magic in this story and this time everyone is seeing it. It has many worried on all sides. It’s even putting a strain on the orc-dwarf. This causes lots of grief for Bruenor Battlehammer as he doesn’t know what to do! We see him struggle with so much in this story and how will this impact him in future stories.
Drizzt has been applying the knowledge he learned from the two moon wood elves, but he isn’t really ready for all those lessons to be applied.
I really did like this story for all the points here without posting any spoilers. I would like to see the narrator replaced and and someone else re-record this story line.
It took me about half way thru the Orc King to get used to Mark Bramhall's performance, but once I did, the story shined. But his rendition of Ghost King is so good I wanted to submit a review.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Mark Bramhall?Not if I already know the written story as Mark has a habit of not pronouncing names like that really get under my skin. Especially when the name fits the story. Example would be Pickle the Dwarf. Mark calls him (Pike L) He is a green bearded dwarf. Its Pickle as in the pickled cucumber! Alustriel, Menzoberranzan, the list goes on. I wish he would have just listened to the guy (Victor) that did 20 of these books before Mark got a few of the jobs. I do really like his multitude of voices he uses. But this almost ruined it for me, I didn't listen to it nearly as addictively as the other 25+ books from the Drizzt series that Victor did.
the story is amazing as always. mark has done a better job with this book than the last. more heart. my favorite is the dwarf's laugh. he did a much better job at putting heart into his reading.
"Fantastic yet again"
Well written and well read as usual . Will be looking for the next in the line right away
