Quite the let down
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The narrative has no logic to it jumping from one part to the next with little or no explanation as to why the characters made their decisions. If the author were to have sat down and reasoned and planned out the story a little better it could have made this a great listen,
Has Godsland Epic Fantasy Bundle put you off other books in this genre?
Not at all. I love fantasy books, and realise sometimes you'll find one you don't enjoy but the next one could be a thing of wonder.
What three words best describe Chris Snelgrove’s voice?
He tries hard but the voices are lacking distinction from one another. But this may be my bias as I didn't like the story
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The basic plot was imaginative and had some real potential, which was the only thing that kept me listening (I made it to the 5th part) but it was really let down by the dis-organised story telling.
Any additional comments?
I know it seems like a bargain, such a long book for only 1 credit and you may think I'm just being negative, but this is the first time I've left a comment/review and I have over 40 audio books, please don't waste your money.

unsure about this one
There was a point where I was about to stop this series and request a refund.
At first I enjoyed the books, part one was great but it went downhill from there. Things seem disjointed and many parts were not explained well enough. Many of the characters actions made no sense and later this was brushed off as "it was mind control" other something.

the story is ok...
definitely a young adult book, but that's ok. basically, it's a good story and kept my interest, though i wasn't compelled to keep listening. that could have been due to the narrator, which i wasn't all that into.
it wasn't too bad to listen to, though i'd probably enjoyed it much more if someone like Michael Kramer had been the narrator. i never like listening to someone who over-pronounces words with t's in them. and i felt he 'read' the book rather than being characters who 'spoke' the words.
