Mira is starting over at Saint Francis Prep. She promised her parents she would at least try to pretend that she could act like a functioning human this time, not a girl who can't get out of bed for days on end, who feels awake only when she's with Sebby.

Lovely story ( the primary reason I bought it). ive read it on paper many times so I thought that this would be nice as well. But the narrators are not fitting in with the story AT ALL. Miras actor is alright but Jeremy and sebbys are ghastly. Jerremy always sounds panicked. the narrator obviously did not understand the nuances of his storyline. totally made Jeremy sound clueless and pathetic. AND DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON SEBBY. this is just crude and untrue to the character! sebby now spunds like a thirty year old who's smoked all his life. ACTOR TOTALLY MISSES FUNNY MOMENTS!!! makes sebby's character too serious and boring (which he is not in the least). PAINFULL TO LISTEN TO. please I beg you to just read on paper if you value your sanity!!

The harrowing adventures of FitzChivalry Farseer and his enigmatic friend, the Fool, continue in Robin Hobb's triumphant follow-up to Fool's Assassin. But Fool's Quest is more than just a sequel. With the artistry and imagination her fans have come to expect, Hobb builds masterfully on all that has gone before, revealing devastating secrets and shocking conspiracies that cast a dark shadow over the history of Fitz and his world - a shadow that now stretches to darken all future hope.

What's with the Fool's weird accent?

If you could sum up Fool's Quest in three words, what would they be?

Great story, bad perfomance

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Fool is my favorite and Elliot Hill is ruining him! He sounds like a Nazi in a bad movie. There's nothing in the books to suggest he speaks Fitz's language with any accent at all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Elliot Hill’s performances?

Not if I can help it. I'm seriously considering turning this off and just reading the book.

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

Yes, until the performance started driving me nuts. He doesn't do Bee well, either, and his Fitz is kind of lackadaisical, but the Fool is really the last straw!
