Another disappointing narrator

The narration is dull, flat with no distinction between characters. Author forgot that Jack & Sarah were married in the previous book before going to China. Remember they talked about their wedding song.

Wasn't able to continue listening to narrator!

Listened to 26 minutes of the book and had to turn it off. The narrator is extremely robotic, no infliction, no tonal changes, no anything! Very lackluster performance. This is the first time I have bailed on a book because of the narrator! I love this series so I will read the book instead. Such a waste!

I cant do it

The point of an audio book is to have someone with a good speaking voice. This book needs to be re-recorded with someone that isnt so robotic sounding. I made about 5 minutes in before turning it off. The narrator's voice is almost painful to listen to. Couldn't be more disappointed

Another great Event Group book

I don’t normally post reviews but, having just finished listening to”Season of the Witch” and seeing the reviews posted thus far, I felt compelled to comment. First let me say that I have read/listened to every book in this series. This is a great series with good storylines and great characters. “Season of the Witch” does not disappoint. It does contain some tragic outcomes for the Event Group, for which some readers have complained. I understand that it’s hard to lose characters in an ongoing series but this is as it is in real life. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. The reason for my posting this review is because of the reviews that have been posted regarding the narration of the audio version. The majority of the books were narrated by Richard Poe. “Empire of the Dragon” and “Season of the Witch” were narrated by Jeffrey Kafer and Francis G. Kearney, respectively. There are negative reviews for both of these books that are based solely on the fact that they were not narrated by Mr. Poe. I agree he is a great narrator. However, Mr. Kafer and Mr. Kearney are also. Their styles are different but, to me, it did not distract from the great stories. And after all, isn’t that why we listen to audiobooks; for the story? With the last two books, Mr. Golemon has changed publishers and maybe that is why Mr. Poe cannot be obtained for the narration. I don't know, but regardless, this is still a worthwhile series to listen to. Mr. Golemon, please keep the Event Group books coming.

Bad narrator<br />

What happened to the usual narrator?
Story suffers with really bad narration.
The previous Narrator was so much better.

Why did they change narrators!!!

With all due respect to the current narrator, Francis G. Kearney and the previous narrator, Jeffrey Kafer for Empire of the Dragon- Book 13.

I've been an avid fan of the Event Group series since Book 1 and Richard Poe has been the only narrator to capture the characters for the series.

I'm not sure who makes the decision for choices of narrators but they made a serious mistake. The stories in the last two books in the series were ok, but without Richard Poe, it was a grind to finish these books.

If they don't use Richard Poe to narrate the next Event Group book, I may give up this series.

Bring back POE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought the Narrator did an excellent job

The story line continues in the development of the Event Group, with some surprises - like them or not. The characters introduced are quirky and eccentric, and some of the old characters return - one nasty guy in particular and one really interesting new character who unfortunately just fades out and there is a surprise.
It has to be a tough job following the likes of Richard Poe, whose excellent narrating has been the strength of these audiobooks. To step in and try to fill the gap left by Poe has to be a tough challenge, and while the performance isn't Poe by any means, it is still an excellent narration of the story. I expect some of the rancor seen from fans pointed at new narrators is because they are not the familiar Poe, and anyone daring to step into that gap should expect to see angry fans protest even though that seems petty.
Each narrator has their own interpretations of things and this narrator made a valiant effort to keep the story interesting and moving along and I believe has done a good job and his voice is very listenable.
It seems like this might be the last of this series, although I hope not but it was released, even rushed, to a lot complaints about extreme editing errors, withdrawn, re-edited and re-released. One plus with the audiobook, is that the editing errors we saw in the book version have been corrected by the narrator.
Overall very enjoyable - a great yarn - I will be sad to see this excellent series end.

I enjoyed the audiobook and I believe Event fans will also - as long as you're not waiting for Richard Poe, because he isn't coming.

Horrible Narration!

I’m not particularly picky about narration usually, but I couldn’t even get through the first chapter of this book. I have every other book in the series, but there’s just no way I can even force myself to listen to this anymore than I have. Save yourself the hassle, or at the very least listen, to the “Sample” audio before buying.

The narrator should be fired

I've loved all the event group books but I can't rate this now due to the robot the is reading it you are better off reading it yourself I wish someone had posted this before I wasted a credit on this he is so bad that his voice is like nails on a chalkboard
