Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Meagher?
The only reason I am suffering through these books is because I really like Raymond E. Feist, I have read or listened to all of his books starting with "Magician: Apprentice" but I really feel that as a narrator, John Meagher is one of the worst I have ever listened to. In his favor, his clear and percise, but that is about as far as it goes.
1st - He reads way to fast. If he read just a little slower it would make it easier to follow the story.
2nd - (Maybe because he is rushing) There is no pause between scenes. One second we are with Sandreena, and all of a sudden we are with Pug, leaving us to wonder how in the heck did we get there??????
3rd - His is really bad at doing charactor voices (that is WHEN he attempts them) When he does, the listener can tell right away that they are forced, making it even harder to listen to.
4th - He uses very little emotional emphasis such as happiness, sadness, excitment, and so on in his reading
The narrator that I would have reccomended to have read these books would have been Gerard Doyle. He is the one who narrated the "Inheritance" series by Christopher Paolini. He is probably one of the best I have listen to.

Would you recommend A Kingdom Besieged to your friends? Why or why not?
No. The narrator's voice and style were not enjoyable. After only a couple of hours of listening I gave up and could not finish the story.
How could the performance have been better?
The tone of the narrator's voice was not enjoyable.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I didn't make it far enough through the book to know.
