Summary

Sequestered in the blackness of the dreaded Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas, surrounded by nameless creatures of evil, Raistlin Majere weaves a plan to conquer the darkness - to bring it under his control.
Crysania, a beautiful and devoted cleric of Paladine, tries to use her faith to lead Raistlin from the darkness. She is blind to his shadowed designs, and he draws her slowly into his neatly woven trap.
Made aware of Raistlin’s plan, a distraught Caramon travels back in time to the doomed city of Istar in the days before the Cataclysm. There, together with the ever-present kender Tasslehoff, Caramon will make his stand to save Raistlin’s soul.
Or so he believes.

PLEASE! Remake this Audible book with Paul Boehmer

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I've very rarely write reviews, unless I feel very passionately about something...

And I'm not going to slate the performance. it's time to move on...But it's blatantly obvious that the performance of Paul Boehmer in the Dragonlance Chronicles is so utterly outstanding, that it does the Legends series a cataclysmic injustice not to be performed by Paul Boehmer.Come on Audible please! put all us Dragonlance fans out of our misery...Record it using Paul Boehmer and I vow I'll buy it again!

What did you like best about this story?

The Story is perfect as is, it needs performing by Paul Boehmer.And I say 'performing' not 'narrating'. This isn't a scientific journal imparting cold dry facts. It's meant to be an engaging performance immersing and entertaining the Audience in a similar way a film would in a cinema. were not asking for dolby 5.1 and sound effects but just to be read with some who clearly has a passion for the books the characters (and thier correct pronunciation) and the ability to vocalise individualised voices for the different characters.

How could the performance have been better?

After each re-reading both in either book or audible form, you see new layers to the characters and thier interactions with each other. And as your perspective changes as you get older, your view of thier desires, morals and reasoning changes. And it gives you a new perspective to the story, making it slightly different with each reading.I think that is why it is my most read and re-read book series by far.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If Paul Boehmer performed it, it will be perfect!

Time of the twins

The story is really good like all the. Weiss and Hickman books,but what a terrible reader! Completely spoils the book. No difference in the different personalities, every one is read in the same monotenous voice at the same quite fast speed. I am sorry I wasted my money on this, more so,as I already bought the other two books ( with my credits) in this series.. I am better off just reading them . Really annoyed.Please don't let this man read anymore books,it is not fair on us readers wasting our one a month credits

TERRIBLE, Passionless, and Dry Narration

The Dragonlance story, in my opinion, is one of the best fantasy series ever written; "Chronicles" and "Legends" being the pinnacle of the vessel launched by Weis and Hickman in the early 80s.

"Chronicles" narrator, (Paul) Boehmer, not only captured the feel of the world in books, but the essence of the characters - something that creates the true magic of these stories. These characters' depths of feeling, devotion to each other, inner turmoil, struggle with both the good and the evil within and without, and so on is what draws a reader in and captures them!

This, however, was nearly obliterated by (Ax) Norman, the narrator for "Legends," who left the books dry and without emotion. He should truly have given a listen to Boehmer before he started or, at very least, done research of his own - perhaps consulting with Weis and/or Hickman before slaughtering pronunciations, draining the passion of the characters, and making flavorless the overall feel of the World of Krynn and all those "living" upon it.

At very least, he should have gone back to previous recordings and, hearing his own voice, remained consistent in his pronunciations and overall rhythm and tempo of his tale. Is it Paladin, or PalaDINE? Is it RAStlin, or RAIstlin? TANE-is or TANis? Good gods, man - pick one, even if you're slaughtering it, and stick with it!

Perhaps one of the dullest narrators ever employed, but moreso because his narration removes the essence and life of the story. Funny moments were made bland; serious and important moments made to seem not only ordinary, but that almost make the reader uncaring.

We can only hope that these can one day be redone by Boehmer or, perhaps, another narrator who knows how to perform, and who obviously cares that the listener be drawn in, entertained, and transported rather than one interested in gathering an easy paycheck.

I should have read the reviews...

Would you try another book from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman and/or Ax Norman?

Yes, I will try another of Weis and Hickman, but I will avoid like the plague any book narrated by Ax Norman

What did you like best about this story?

The story is compelling but I will be buying the book and reading for myself.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ax Norman’s performances?

Absolutely Not

Was Time of the Twins worth the listening time?

Not with this narrator....

Any additional comments?

After listening to the Chronicles series, this narrator falls so short, I couldn't even finish half of the book.
