Publisher's Summary

Sequestered in the blackness of the dreaded Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas, surrounded by nameless creatures of evil, Raistlin Majere weaves a plan to conquer the darkness - to bring it under his control.

Crysania, a beautiful and devoted cleric of Paladine, tries to use her faith to lead Raistlin from the darkness. She is blind to his shadowed designs, and he draws her slowly into his neatly woven trap.

Made aware of Raistlin’s plan, a distraught Caramon travels back in time to the doomed city of Istar in the days before the Cataclysm. There, together with the ever-present kender Tasslehoff, Caramon will make his stand to save Raistlin’s soul.

Or so he believes.

    "Get rid of this narrator!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Title says it all I will not be buying the other books in this series because of him. I love the book have read it before in paperback and wanted to listen to it again but I'll have to go look for it else where.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have it re-read by a different narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger at the narrator that can't even pronounce the name consistently let alone properly, not to mention the lack of any characters in his reading, everyone sounds the same. You would think they would get Professional narrators who at least try to give a voice or different feeling to each character, especially for the cost of these books.

    "Excellent Series, Horrible Narrator"
    What did you love best about Time of the Twins?

    The storyline and characters are simply fantastic!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot and development of characters were the best part of this story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Bring back the original narrator, Paul Boehmer!


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

    Yes, but with Paul Boehmer as the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    The original narrator, Paul Boehmer, of the first three books brought each character to life. However, Ax Norman's voice is flat and boring; all characters sound the same and have no life at all.

    "LOVE THE STORY BUT THE NARRATOR IS AWFUL!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Time of the Twins to be better than the print version?

    I would say it was better if the narrator was somebody else.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It's a shame that the narrator ruined this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Please re-record with the narrator that did the 4 Chronicle Books.

    "worst narrator ever! i can't even listen to this!"
    Could you see Time of the Twins being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Ax is by far the worst narrator I've heard on here, he is contantly getting names wrong, like pronouncing majere "majure" and palidine "palidin", when he reads dialog there's no change in tone and conversations are most of the time confusing and I often find myself having to constantly rewind and listen to sections again. I can not get into this story as much as I loved the first 3 books because of ax's boring mono tone naration, please, PLEASE, have paul boehmer renarrate these novels as he did a great job with the first 3 books, I won't be purchasing the other two books of this series until you audible gets rid of Ax.

    Story
    "To the Tower of High Sorcery - Begin Your Journey!"

    After the initial Dragonlance series, most readers figured the story of Caramon and Raistlin was finished, said and done.

    We were all taken by surprise and thrilled to discover these three novels that gave us an even stronger reading on the twins future story. Despite the wearisome Ax Norman narration, you will enjoy these at LEAST as good as the first four novels, and will be carried along on a journey of high magic, time travel, broad epic story lines, vast moral decisions impacting the world, and just simply good fantasy listening.

    This first of the three will swallow you up into the Dragonlance realm, and when done, if you don't want more, I will be honestly SHOCKED. This is Weiss and Hickman at their prime.

    Don't pass this series up. I liked it so much, I acquired all three in the series.

    And don't worry, I don't always write glowing reviews. Look at my past reviews, and you'll see some extremely negative reviews. Don't worry, I have a few negative reviews to share soon.

    For now, let's focus on the good stuff. And this, Audible listener, is the good stuff.

    "Great story."

    Great story despite the narrator, who speaks with zero expression or enthusiasm. You would almost think he is reading the dictionary, except that the book itself is wonderful!

    "Horribly narrated."

    Wonderful story. Have loved this series since the books came out. But the narrator is just terrible. Almost stating the storyline rather than adding any feeling.

    Story
    "AVOID the audiobook at all cost!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book, yes. The audiobook, absolutely not.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Weis and Hickman have learned from writing the Chronicles, and it shows. The characters grow in interesting ways, there are more mature concepts tackled (for what this book is, at least), and the story is far more original. Everything is more focused, and there isn't the sense one gets in the Chronicles of having missed important events off-page. For the first time, a Dragonlance book is exactly the length it should be. I highly recommend it.


    What didn’t you like about Ax Norman’s performance?

    Ax Norman may be one of the worst narrators of audiobooks I've ever heard. So bad, in fact, that I gave up on the audio a quarter of the way through and just bought a physical copy instead. There is no emotion, no differentiation between characters, no inflection-- Norman sounds as if he is reading the book for the first time and he doesn't like it all that much. He can't even be bothered to read the title at the beginning. I've never encountered a narrator more passionless or lazy.


    Was Time of the Twins worth the listening time?

    No. Read it, but SAVE YOUR MONEY.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't be buying the audiobooks for the rest of the trilogy. I'll be reading them, but not through Audible. I don't know why Ax was hired. His performance is SHOCKINGLY bad. I'm usually against re-recording books, but this one is begging for it. It would actually be better not to have an audiobook at all. Audible, you can do better. Much, much better.

    "flat and tired"

    Found the narration to be flat and rife with errors. Characters names tripped over, emphasis put at the wrong parts of sentences, etc. After reading the Dragons trilogies, this one was a disappointment. Go listen to Sandra instead! Dragons of the Highlord Skies was fantastic.

    "just an awful narration"

    monotone and lackluster. I lived this book as a kid and the narrator ruined it for me. names were mispronounced and everyone had the exact same voice. whoever directed this is also to blame, if not more so.
