Loved the book, but something is up with this audiobook. At the begining of new 'chapters' (as audible has them, which does not like up with the book chapters) the last 20 seconds or so from the previous chapter repeats. This has happened in the earlier books too, but happened much more frequently in this book.
Long spans of new character introduction that get boring and I lose interest. Still love the chapters that deal with the main characters and I realize that those spans are necessary to forward the story.
Had a few issues with the recording though. Lots of places where the book skipped back and repeated itself was a bit annoying. That belong said as always the performance and book are great.
still a great book on the series but like everyone else has stated the editing is atrocious. not sure why they wouldn't fix it after all these years but they won't. the further you get the more often it happens as well where it does a 5-10 second loop before going on again. deja vu is only fun in real life.
Audiobook chapters are not even remotely consistent with book chapters, and many times the beginning of a new chapter is an exact repeat of the previous 30 seconds or so. Quite annoying.
Great book though.
Throughout this entire book the audio segments overlap to where you have repeated sentences quite often.
The narrators did a great job, but whoever combined the recordings did a horrible job.
This series is great, and so is this book however the audible reading of it was not. It kept going back and repeating itself every so often, which was extremely annoying. I've only had this problem with this particular book. It's still worth listening to though if you don't want to miss a book.
