Don't like multiple readers.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Like the entire series but really dislike the multiple readers. I lose the coherence of the characters.

I would recommend it to anyone that likes fantasy with the above caveat.
I

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

Yes, individually the readers were fine.
