I enjoy most of her books, but the Narrators should be road tested. The woman is ok... but the guy... so lame

Meh...

The narrators are painful to listen. The character names are not pronounced the same, as in previous books not sure if i can go through the whole book. If you have such a long series, get the absolute right narrator and keep him all the way through. The children sound like creepy freaks. Very dissapointing. You have a picture in your mind of characters, which is then blown out the window. The previous book narrator was not crash hot either, but one gets used to what has been established. Audible could have better quality control.

Enjoy the books

I am Enjoyoing the books, was not that keen on the Narrator. He made Sampson sound like he was mentally challenged. Alex is a little too holier than thou, but that aside, a good listen.

Not a bad read

It took a while to get into the story and trying to get the setting as to what timeline this story has... still not clear on that. unfortunately the Narrator did not make listening easy at all. the books should be narrated by Davina Porter first of all and not have 3 different ones. I'll persevere with book 2, as it is narrated by Davina

Loved this story

I wish narrators would slowdown a bit, especially with subjects such as this. I personally did not enjoy it. He reads well, but that about it

I have been reading Terry Goodkind for many years. Thought I'd re-visit listening to audio books, the Narrator just does NOT suit these stories. There is no character at all in this childlike voice. Audible should pick their readers with more care. Will go back to reading the books

I have been reading these books for years. The remarkable talent and depth of the Author's writing leaves you wanting for more. it leaves you thinking, as many lessons are interwoven in these stories. Magicians End is an amazing conclusion to decades of enjoyment. The characters become like family to you, so shedding tears was part of the journey for me. A certain sadness is with me now I've come to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed the Audio versions. Peter Joyce has done an amazing job narrating. 2 books were narrated by someone else, which I did not enjoy. This is not the last time I will be listening to these works.

Aweful aweful narrator

Somehow this book just didnt feel right, almost as if someone totally different wrote it. The other Land mystery was missing, the language just didnt fit. I devoured the other books, this one i just can’t get past half way. Not sure about the narrater either. I read these books years ago and enjoyed the audiobooks thus far. I still have a few to go, hopefully i will enjoy them. The kanguage is what bothered me the mist, it just didnt suit the setting of the book... too modern maybe, xant put my finger on it.
