So very good

This book is very well written and the narrator did a great job. There is a point where the narrator refers to Elbereth as Elizabeth though. I listened to it three times to confirm. Went back and opened the actual book to confirm and the book has the name correct. I believe it was chapter 5; quiet. Great book though.

I am biased

I like D&D so this is right up my alley.

It is straightforward and you know what conclusion will occur.

It is not nearly as mysterious as say the first few drizzt books in the under dark. Nor as in-depth of a history or information given as in those books regarding the under dark. If you read them you’d understand.

It is a fun journey regardless from start to finish. The moral dilemmas i suppose aren’t very deep. But they do well enough.

If you like elf’s killing orcs and such it’s good regardless.

In Sylvan Shadows

A very enjoyable fantasy realm.
A person could believe in the characters. Presented in a understandable story lines.

ok, I give up

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is really something more for action fans and those who love D&D

Has In Sylvan Shadows turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but I won't continue the series - I didn't mind the first but was hoping the next story would bring more depth to the characters and story. The characters are very one dimensional and the story is just not anything special - good vs evil but I don't like any of the characters enough [or hate them enough!] to keep my interest

What does Victor Bevine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Victor Bevine does a wonderful job with the narration - the voices flow seamlessly and are all identifiable - well done

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

boredom . . .

Great read

Salvatore, brings you into the story so flawlessly that you can't put it down. Unassuming characters that are not your average heros.

Completely enjoyed

The narrator was great in this book. I read this book many years ago and now re- experiencing it through Audible was a treat.
