If you're into Warcraft, you'll love this story!

What made the experience of listening to World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War the most enjoyable?

Compelling storyline, well written. Provides a lot more character depth to many of the major Warcraft characters.

What other book might you compare World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War to and why?

The storyline is as good as her previous Warcraft books (she's written 5 other Warcraft titles- unfortunately this is the only one available from Audible!) I think she's the best of the writers for Warcraft books!

Did Justine Eyre do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The narration was adequate, but could have been better.

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

If you want war between the Horde and Alliance, you've got it!

Any additional comments?

Please add more Christie Golden books to Audible, especially her Warcraft books!

Enjoyable

Would you consider the audio edition of World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War to be better than the print version?

Yes. I thought the reader was wonderful. She can't get the low's needed for male orcs - but few can :)

What was one of the most memorable moments of World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War?

The mana bomb

Which scene was your favorite?

Jaina and Thrall fighting

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

Jaina - a woman scorn?

Any additional comments?

I thought the reader did a wonderful job. I thought the story was great too. It isn't a historical piece of work, but those of you who are fans of world of warcraft, Alliance or Horde, this was a great story - especially before Mists of Pandaria.

Great Story, Can't stand the narrator's voice.

Would you try another book from Christie Golden and/or Justine Eyre?

I have read or listened to several Christie Golden books. She is a fantastic author and I strongly suggest her works to anyone interested in the Warcraft universe.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's attempt to give justice to some of the characters such as Garrosh Hellscream is so feeble, that it is border line hilarious. I have been tempted to skip over the parts where Garrosh is involved but keep listening in fear of missing a plot detail.

Any additional comments?

Read the book. Skip this particular audio book. The girl, although has a nice voice, she does not do any of the Orc or Tauren characters justice.

The voice acting was painful.

Where does World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was an enjoyable tie-in novel that is somewhat important for WoW players to read if they truly want to understand the lore, because the game skips over much of this story and jumps to the aftermath. And although the story is enjoyable, the poor narration makes it much better ebook than audio book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's normal reading voice was pleasant, but when she got in character to do male voices, it was an unbearable attempt at a deep gravely voice. Orc and Tauren especially sounded like a child's mocking impersonation of an elderly male. I often couldn't tell who was speaking because everyone sounded the same. I don't expect a narrator to have a voice that can truly match every character, but this was hard to listen to. Her normal reading voice would have been much better.

Better than I could ever imagine.

Would you consider the audio edition of World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War to be better than the print version?

Yes, I love to listen while working, it's like doing two things at once.

What did you like best about this story?

Oh my, this is a tough question, I really liked the whole story but but better understanding Jaina was well worth it.

good story but wasnt feeling the voice acting

as a wow player i enjoy the lore and story of the game i love the one thing about this audio book that made it quite hard to enjoy to the fullest was the narration. Justine Eyre did a fine job with the narration and female voice acted parts (Jaina and Kinndy), but in my opinion the male parts were very hard to listen to. the first time i heard her Voljin impression i literally laughed out loud and couldnt take the portions of story with orc, troll, or tauren quotes seriously. other than that however it was a good story all in all but i wish maybe Scott Brick would have been the reader

An Amazing Tale in the Warcraft Chronicles

This was a tremendously well written story, and the voice actress did an exceptional job. Her male tones were as good as they could be, but her female voices we're impeccable! It is a must listen for fans of the lore.

Emotional

Such a great story. The author made it very easy to relate with the raw emotions Jaina was experiencing. This book is certainly worth the tears you will shed.
