Fun Series

This is my favorite fantasy novel series. Raymond Feist weaves an engaging and fun story without getting too bogged down in details. I also really appreciate that the book is mostly clean since some fantasy novels (think Game of Thrones) can sometimes devolve too much. This is just good fun.

Amazing storytelling

I've read this series at least 5 times, but I have to say that listening to it brought it to life in a whole new way. The narrator was amazing. I was glad to see that the entire series was narrated by the same person as one, it keeps a continuity to the stories and two, he does a absolutely superb job. The stories themselves were just as exciting as I remember them, even with this being my sixth time through. This is my all time favorite series and, I'm sure, will remain so. You really get drawn into the world(s) and feel a connection with the characters. I still get angry when certain people die, even though I know it's coming, because I've been unavoidably drawn into their lives once again. If you love a good sword and sorcery story, look no further, you won't be disappointed.

A wonderful end.

A wonderful end to a fantastic series. I've read everything (I think) in this series and the first four books are stand alone beauties. <Spoiler> The continuations finally end in a very well put together closure for the worlds of Midkemia and Kelewan, Pug and Tomas. if this is as far as you've gotten, please continue to read or listen to the rest and you won't be disappointed.

I recommend the Peter Joyce Narration. not this

Selected narration to be included when buying the kindle book. I didnt think about the fact that I wasn't given an option for narrator.
Loved listening to the first 2 books in this set narrated by Peter Joyce. in comparison this narrator is much less lively, pronounces names oddly, some of which I can see why he reads them that way, but others like Carline (or Carleene if you listen to Smith) I can't work out how he made the jump to pronouncing it that way over the more straightforward pronounciation.
I am probably most put off his narration because I preferred Peter Joyce. I will pay more attention to what version of the audiobooks are being provided alongside the kindle copy next time.

Take away message: brilliant story, but there's a better version of the audio book, look for the one narrated by Peter Joyce!
