    "Wonderful"

    I had read the Witch World books many years ago and enjoyed them at that time. The enjoyment of the series has been rekindled with this audio version. It was enjoyable to be reintroduced to Simon Tregarath and the Witches of Estcarp. I hope that a number of the other books are brought out. The narrator does a wonderful job with reading the book.

    "Lo-o-o-ove Andre Norton"

    I was introduced to Andre Norton a few months ago, and this has reopened my love for old-fashioned sci-fi... The twists, the imagination - wow... Love the different style that Andre Norton adopts.

    I love driving, but now I love the audio books that go with the trip :) This is simply a "must-have" for your audio library...

    "Disappointing performance"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love Witch World, it's one of my favorite books, and certainly one of my favorites of Norton's books. Her writing and story in this first book of the Witch World are stellar, usng Celtic mythology to weave a story of a man who finds his true life on another world. What I couldn't stand was Podehl's narration.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Podehl’s performances?

    No. His delivery is lifeless, and he mispronounced words. He has no sense of phrasing, and seems to be merely reading the story instead of performing it. I'm also not fond of the tenor of his voice, I find it a bit whiny, but that's just my ear, and has nothing to do with his lack of performance.

    "I just couldn't keep listening"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I think the best thing that could have been done would be to change the narrator. I just couldn't listen to this narration. It was very irritating and grating and quite monotone. I listen to LOTS of audiobooks and love them but I only made it to Chapter 6 and I just couldn't listen anymore.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Another Patrick Rothfuss....I was very impressed.


    What didn’t you like about Nick Podehl’s performance?

    monotone, no real emotion, grating and irritating


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

    annoyance and disappointment that I had wasted money on it.

    "An Old Favorite"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am so thrilled to find that Audiobooks has the first three books in the Witch World series!!!! I owned the collection years ago, and just dearly loved the stories. However, time passes, and I no longer have the collection (my bad). Thank you, Thank you, Audible, for carrying these awesome stories!!! I am soooo looking forward to hearing my old friends spring back to life!


    What other book might you compare Witch World to and why?

    There is no comparison. Andre Norton ROCKS!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I just could not tell you. From the aeries to the runes to the ancient places of power, the adventures the characters go on enthrall me and hold me spell-bound.


    Any additional comments?

    Sure wish these books would be made into movies. They would be AWESOME!!! Harry Potter has NOTHING on Witch World!!!

    "witch world read and read"
    What made the experience of listening to Witch World the most enjoyable?

    I had, many years ago, been an avid reader of Andre Norton and this was the first I read. It was fascinating to listen to another's way of reading the book. It was as exciting as I remember and it is a good once only read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was an old favourite but it was nice to be read too.


    Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favourite?

    Tho' the accent was not as my mind had immagined, it was the way Nick narrated the whole book that made the story relive in my mind.


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

    My intention was to listen in small sessions, whilst driving but the style of reading ensured that I listened to the complete book much faster than I intended!!


    Any additional comments?

    It has confirmed my wish to buy the other books in the series and the other books by the author.
