His voice has been the greatest gift to this novel series, and his reading of the final chapter in this long running series is no different. As for feist...ugh. I love to hate to love this author. His best works have been his collabs, yet he still created a plethora of engaging characters who had a depth that allowed you to care for them, miss them when they were gone, and cheer for them when they needed it. magician's end told you everything in the title, and you knew the rest from the end of chapter one. most of the time you're just wanting it to hurry up and finish...then it does, and you're no longer sure what you want. would still recommend this series to anyone in need of a movie length tale.

this book has always ranked highly in my list of treasured readings, and hearing Joyce bring some of my favourite characters to life has been wonderous. the only downside to listening to the book is noting some of the horrible writing feist used. aside from that, i was still tearing up suring the sad moments, rejoicing at the happy ones, and laughing at the character shenanigans.

the first time i was permitted to stay up late and watch "grown ups telly" was when there was a Hitchcock double bill on. i don't recall the second film, but remember clearly sitting through the psychological horror of "the birds". i was about 8 or 10, and already well versed in Stephen King, and Tolkein, and i still recall the vividness of my loungeroom snd our giant television in the corner near the fireplace. i was often wary of that fireplace, but for other reasons.

hearing the book, and inspiration for the film, for the first time, i was mesmerised by the imagery, and how much of it was both lost, yet captured, by the film.

Capaldi's narration is suberb. his characterisation is wonderfully considered, and very much in touch with the narrative of each tale. the only real negative i can note is the terrible music placement and the hotrible way it is mixed.
