Good book - shame about the narrator
- Brighton UK Customer
Fantastic book - terrible narrator
Fantastic story - all of the books by trudi canavan have captivated and held my attention through reading and re-reading!
If you don't mind heavy breathing and continuous gulping you will like this audio book - when listening I find the heaving breathing and the additional mouth noises incredible irritating to a fantastic story
For the story yes but with a different narrator
With a female lead character a female narrator would be better and one who was not so annoying in the recording - a male narrator like Stephen fry would not produce so many irritating additional noises in the recording - I wish the audio book was one I could enjoy as many times as harry potter - the story should allow all the books to be - but the choice of narrator is very poor
