I enjoy listening

The narrator needs work on the female characters, which honestly has to be a challenge for anyone. The story jumped around a lot more so and has a lot of moving parts. Most get cleaned up by the end.

Worst Narrator I've encountered.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I can't get through this book. The reader reads it as if it's poetry... not a story... it's mind numbing...

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Different reader.

Would you be willing to try another one of James Patrick Cronin’s performances?

Hell no.

Any additional comments?

Please have this book re-read.

STINKY

What disappointed you about Swords of Eveningstar?

EVERYTHING.BADLY WRITTEN, NOT ED'S LEVEL FOR FANTASY. THE WORST IS THE NARRATOR OF THE STORY, WHAT A GIRLY VOICE FOR HEROS.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ed Greenwood again?

YES I'VE READ OTHER BOOKS BY ED AND HE IS USUALLY A TOP FANTASY WRITER.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Patrick Cronin?

ANYONE WITH A MANS VOICE.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

NO.
