What disappointed you about The Fearful Gates?
The tone of the book seemed so different from the 1st in the series. Good guys maybe weren't good guys. Bad guys - were they really bad? It almost felt like it belonged in another series entirely. One of the main characters went through a transformation from being pretty violent to not at all, which I understand was part of the character arc, but it seemed way too quick and not realistic. Something was missing. It could be I just couldn't get past the narration and missed some of the nuances.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator really ruined the book for me. While his different character voices were okay, whenever he was reading just narration I cringed, sometimes literally. It's hard to describe but it seemed like he raised the pitch of his voice higher and made it feel unnatural. I probably would have enjoyed the actual story a lot more if I could have gotten past that. I made it through the book but I will not be listening again.
