    "Great Story, Worst Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Alison Croggon and/or Colin Moody?

    The Books of Pellinor are one of my favorite series, and I'd be interested in reading anything else Alison Croggon creates. However, I will never purchase another audio book narrated by Colin Moody. His voice is bland, his accents are horrid and his dictation overall was very difficult to listen to. He mispronounced many words specific to this book, and I had to reimagine all of the dialogue in the book to match the tone and setting of the story as well as the personality of the character because I thought his impression did not make any sense at all. There was scant emotion or feeling put behind any of the words. He did a disservice to the Alison Croggon's beautifully created world and story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Colin Moody?

    I would have stayed with Eloise Oxer for all of the books. I don't think just because the book is in Hem's point of view that a male should narrate the book.

    Story
    "Hem's Journey In The Pellinor Tale"
    If you could sum up The Crow in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting ... Enlightening ... Endearing There is much happening in the tale of Pellinor and all of it is not completely involving Maerad as Hem has a key role to play and finds danger at every turn as well. We also learn a lot about the quest during Hem's adventures and watching Hem's growth and his relationships in The Crow will certainly touch the reader's/listener's heart along the way!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crow?

    Hem's first introduction to the elemental, Ernani, was one of the most memorable moments in this book. But really, the book is so good it is truly difficult to choose just one moment as there are many points along the way in this adventure that keep you enraptured!


    What about Colin Moody’s performance did you like?

    Colin Moody does a good job but I am still partial to Eloise Oxer for the Pellinor tales. I think because this is Hem's tale it is good to have a male reader but I am so used to hearing Saliman as portrayed by Oxer as opposed to Moody that it was a little hard for me to transition over as a listener, although, Moody did do a fabulous job of portraying the many rich characters.


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

    I definitely could have listened to this book in one sitting if the call for food and sleep did not get in the way! Actually I listen while I work so it is easy for me to say this and I did listen to this tale in basically two sittings. Darn that need for food and sleep! ;)


    Any additional comments?

    I very much enjoyed Hem's story and I think the story did a wonderful job of letting the reader get to know him and tie-in important pieces of the quest as well.

    "Terrible Narrator"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Colin Moody’s performances?

    NO! This is the worst narrator I have listened to so far. I wish I could get a refund.

    "Narrator ruined the story"
    What didn’t you like about Colin Moody’s performance?

    Moody's performance was stiff and uninteresting. He had little range in his voice, giving just about every character the same Eastern European-type accent. If this recording was the first one in the series, I wouldn't have listened to any of it. I pushed through it because I want to know how the series ends, but this was very, very disappointing.
