Wonderful reading

Mr. Prebble finished this trilogy with his beautifully modulated reading and dramatic timing. Thank you Audiobooks for recording one of my favorite fantasy books. Highly recommended.

Awesome story

What made the experience of listening to Harpist in The Wind the most enjoyable?

In the timeless storyline of mans struggle with change, this story ties the standard with Tolkien. I first read the series in '87, and marveled at the story line then. I discovered it as a audible and quickly bought the series.

What did you like best about this story?

Continous action

What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

Well spoken, good pitch,

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The same as the trilogy from Doubleday books..."the Stars of Hed"
