    "Norman has GOT to GO!"

    Once again, the passionless, dry, and obviously unfamiliar-with-the-story narration comes out of Ax Norman!

    The Dragonlance series is one of the best in fantasy - in my opinion, some of the best ever written. All it takes to suck the life out of it is narration like this.

    I bought the first two books of "Legends" from Audible before I knew what I was in for. I think, for "Test of Twins" I will either just go read the hard-copy I already have (though I switched to audiobooks because I can "read" on my long commutes and/or when my eyes are worn out from staring at a computer screen all day), or I will wait until Audible hires someone with the real ability to narrate before I pick up the third book in audio format.

    Very disappointing since these books are SO good, otherwise.

    "Riveting!"
    What made the experience of listening to War of the Twins the most enjoyable?

    Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman do a wonderful job in this series at leaving you wanting more. They have mastered the elements of their expertise to craft one of the best narratives in the Dragonlace setting with the Legends books and this book is no different.

    My only complaint is pronunciations the narrator used for very common fantasy names. Especially the dwarven names. The pronunciation of Regar in particular struck my ire. I am used to hearing this name pronounced RAY-gar as opposed to the narrator's reh-GAR, but it is a rather minor complaint given the narrator is, overall, heads and tails over his compatriot fantasy narrators.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was wonderful! The pacing made the story riveting, but not hurried. I especially loved the differences in pacing between different characters. It lended a sense of separation between character personalities that would not have been there with variance in voice alone.


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

    Absolutely! In fact, be warned that you will most likely avoid tasks that will not allow you to continue reading. There are very few points in this book where you will feel like you can stop for a few minutes. When you do make a break, you will be thinking of when you can return to the book.

    Story
    "Norman is the WORST narrator I have ever heard."
    Would you try another book from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman and/or Ax Norman?

    Hickman and Weis, YES, Norman? I'd have to think really hard about it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story has always captivated me as it has some epic lines in it. The Dragonlance Saga was what I read as a youth and it sparked my imagination in many areas. Some compare it to Tolkien, we don't need to go that far, but it was a great ride none the less. Always entertaining and escapist without taking itself too seriously.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ax Norman?

    Anyone. A doorknob of a Kender, a bum off the street, my dog, it was horrible.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Ax Norman has ZERO understanding of how this story affected my generation (those that could read that is) His pronunciation is so horrific I turned the book off I don't know how many times. I always came back though because I wanted to hear the story. For example, who is Taaahz? You pronounce his name right when you say Tasslehoff, how does it mutate into Taaahz??? At one point the dull Ax even calls Sturm STRUM, Sturm Brightblade, a hero of the Lance and he calls him STRUM???! Did he actually READ the copy before he launched into his lackluster, monotone recitation of a book worthy of a full cast of actors? It is physically painful to listen to this book because of his maddening lack of intonation and basic reading skills. If I was listening to a tedious book on quantum physics? Maybe as I wouldn't know the first thing about pronunciation for physics. An adventure tale set in the Dragon lance Universe though? An absolute, unmitigated failure by the Ax.

    "Great Story! Hate the Narrater."
    What did you love best about War of the Twins?

    I loved it all!


    What other book might you compare War of the Twins to and why?

    It is a dragonlance series. I would compare it to the dragonlance chronicles because that is where is comes from.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ax Norman’s performances?

    I would love to listen to other books he has done as long as they are not extensions of the dragonlance chronicles. I much preferred the original narrator.

    "good story -- bad narrator"
    What didn’t you like about Ax Norman’s performance?

    Clear and crisp voice, but dull, dry and monotone. No inflection of tone or voice in the different characters.
