good version

good version of a classic module. Having played the module as well as played the RPG game, this brought back fond memories and the voice acting and production values were really good. Strongly recommend.

A "sort of" Classic

While the adventure path is a classic, this book is rather boorish and uninspired. The actual performance/reading is acceptable. The issue is really more the author's lack of literary flare. The words are just dry when sentences are so similar in length and structure. The lack of a more colorful vocabulary probably would lend itself more towards young readers/listeners, but surely it must still seem a bit dull and unchallenging even then.

Not Paul Kidd

Would you try another book from Thomas M. Reid and/or Bernard Setaro Clark?

I would not try another book from Thomas M. Reid. This books was really boring. The romance put into the storyline was really bad. Main character seemed weak.

Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas M. Reid again?

No.

Which character – as performed by Bernard Setaro Clark – was your favorite?

The thief was good.

Was The Temple of Elemental Evil worth the listening time?

NO. Skip book 3. It has nothing to do with the first two.

Any additional comments?

Skip this book and go straight to book 4. You will be happy you did.

Just couldn't get into the writing style

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Love this series, but quite a change from Paul Kidd's engaging storytelling. Just couldn't get into this writer's style of writing. A little too much detail where I didn't expect, and the converse elsewhere.

What was most disappointing about Thomas M. Reid’s story?

The action scenes read like a play-by-play rather than a flowing narrative.

What does Bernard Setaro Clark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This guy is an incredible narrator.

No fairies, but no worries

After the 1st two books i was really looking forward to Jus and the fairy, i wasnt let down, but i def want the characters in this one to hook up with Jus at some point. Im a DnD player but no knowing of the series so this is fun for me to listen to.

Although a favorite module by many,the book failed

Not believable. Give me a break. No way. Either make the story longer or make the party stronger...or something. Good grief!

OMG

I have no idea what was wrong with this book or the narrator. I was so bored out of my mind I fell asleep a few times. I kept thinking maybe it will get better towards the end but it didn't. It had such great potential but it fell so bad. I forced myself to finish listening to the story because I was so invested into it. But maybe the next listener will enjoy it but I however did not.

Good book

A good interpretation of the classic module. I was pleasantly surprised how good the narrator was and the story plays out like a D&D adventure. The only thing I didnt care for was some detail regarding the temple was ignored, but given the size and complexity of the source material the author still did a good job.

A great start, well narrated to a point.

The setup to this adventure is good; it ticks many a box of old world fantasy and is narrated brilliantly by Bernard of whom I am now a fan. However, the story becomes lost and forever ongoing where even the narrator becomes mediocre because of the ongoing story.
Also (slight spoiler)..

The female character starts well but soon becomes a stereo type old fantasy weak heroine which contradicts her start.

The characters become lost within the story / and then story telling which is a polar opposite from the build up. Shame. It could have been a truly epic adventure.
