What an awesome collection and presentation of stories! So much more interesting than the Marvel universe made them out to be. Gaiman's performance was solid and his translations delightful. A must read.

Incredible book

Patrick Rothfuss is a literary legend, and this stands as one of the greatest fantasy novels ever written.

Rupert Degassed has many clever and considered voices, but I can't say I loved his rendition of Kvothe. It was certainly and acceptable performance, but not quite how I pictured it (which is no fault of his).

Interesting use of sound effects and voice modifiers. A pleasant listen, highly recommended.

Incredible book, excellent performance

Not the voice I had in mind for Kvothe, but a wonderful performance nonetheless of one of my favourite books! Such a pleasure to listen to.

Magnificent

I'm so glad that the Witcher books have been turned into audiobooks and shared on audible! Peter Kenny and his hundreds of distinct voices delivers a stellar performance. Incredible writing and storytelling. A superb end to the series.

The Witcher novels are perhaps my favourite fantasy series. Peter Kenny delivers a masterful performance as always, giving life to dozens of different characters with unique voices. This one is my favourite so far aside from the first in the series! Multiple flashbacks normally irritate me, but the storytelling is done so well here I admire the brilliance of it.

As with all the others, incredible

Peter Kenny's knowledge of bardic melodies is particularly impressive. Incredible series (perhaps my new favourite fantasy series), and really high quality voice acting to boot.

My new favourite book?

Geralt is one of the greatest fantasy characters of all time. He walks a difficult path, and a lonely one too, and he carries his burden without complaint as he struggles between his humanity and his calling as a Witcher. And these stories! They're masterfully told, with intrigue and cleverness, eloquence and intelligence, building to thrilling climaxes and thoroughly satisfying conclusions! Truly my favourite of all the fantasy series I've ever read. A perfect voice actor with great dramatic talent. Can't wait to listen to the others.

My favourite audio book to date.

Fricking love Simon Vance as a narrator - such memorable character voices, especially great that they carry over into The Man in the Iron Mask! A romantic story that inspires me to be an officer and a gentleman.
