While Nick Taylor does a great job of narrating Robin Hobbs amazing stories, the production of this book is fairly woeful. Hobbs has an amazing knack for poignancy at chapter end. Whether it's a wistful lilt, a bombastic cliff hanger or a mournful dirge, all of which this book boasts in plenty, the end of each chapter requires a breath of calm reflection so the mind can process. This production lacks that. At the end of a heartbreaking chapter, as soon as the last word has been read, without half a second passing the production plows on with a neutral "Chapter X". This sounds like a small thing but i challenge you to listen to this and not take note of the savagely abrupt transitions which, in my opinion, negatively effects the product. Brilliant story, wonderful voice acting and terrible production.

With a story line so deep that it leaves you drowning in a torrent of horrific experiences, Stephen Kings It is like a parasite, sucking fear out of the darkness, digesting and excreting it as love. The character development is so complete that the reader feels not only that they know the characters, but that they are involved with them and an invisible player in their stories
An undeniably brilliant story told in masterful style.
