I recall falling in love with these books as a young fella!! The imagination runs wild with thoughts of flying on dragon back, of elves and swords and spells..
I can't understand how the author has allowed his books to be so utterly destroyed by sub par narration.. The choice of voice for a female dragon is horrendous.. These audiobooks would be amazing if the narration was done by someone like Nick Podehl or Jim Dale or even Stephen Fry.. Such a shame.. I'll only buy the next books because of sentimental value only.

Read the books many moons ago, loved them then and loved listening to the audiobooks.. Robin Hobb has the uncanny knack of sucking you deep into the worlds she creates.. The only fault I found was a few editing issues with the audiobook and that is all.. LOVED IT..

Yeah, nah.

This could have been great.. The author constantly repeats himself over and over. The narrator compounds this with his atrocious use of tonal inflection the entire book, he sounds like a constipated goat bleating out complete gibberish..
The author could have made this into an epic, but with his completely amateurish writing style it is now an epic failure.

Mehh

The narrator is absolutely horrid. His constant tonal inflections are incredibly hard to stomach, which make this audiobook almost unbearable to listen to.
The story line itself is great, the concept heads in the right direction.
However the actual story itself meanders needlessly and is extremely predictable.
At times it seems the author is doing a good job guiding the story and then it rapidly changes and seems as though it was written by a 10 year old..
Strange indeed..
