Good reading if you're 12 yrs. old.

This isn't fantasy, it's a fairy tale. Very simplistic and predictable. I read about 2 hours and stopped. I can't understand the good reviews, except that they must be kids. If you are a kid, you'll enjoy it. If you are an adult, don't waste the credit or your time.

Hackneyed, *and* repetitive

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book isn't for anyone who pays attention to what they're reading or listening to.

What could Morgan Rice have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I don't think a single page of this has ever been introduced to an editor. There are strings of sentences that all repeat the same thing - and using the same words! The author is too lazy to come up with different phrases and just uses the same ones over and over. E.g., the main character is "burning with indignation". Then two sentences later, "Indignation is burning in his veins." And in the next paragraph, he's "burning with indignation" again. As a result the characters have no depth and it's very difficult to immerse yourself in the story. The plot is also relatively unimaginative, but I expected that.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator is a good fit for this author. They both have a very small, shallow bag of tricks to work with. The vast majority of sentences in the story are all voiced with the exact same inflection, as if the writing were metered or in verse. It usually doesn't suite the actual content of the text, and becomes terribly annoying very quickly.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was very disappointed with the whole book almost immediately. And depending on my mood otherwise, listening would sometimes make me so frustrated with the stupid mis-steps by the author and narrator that I had to stop.

Should I read it?

Where does A Quest of Heroes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book thus far ranks 3.5 out of 5

What did you like best about this story?

The complexity of the numerous characters.

What does Wayne Farrell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Imaginative fantasy with a childs perspective and attitudes.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

While an interesting read unfortunately each book could have easily been combined with the following book in the series thus, while marketed well it does little for the wallet.

Poor effort

Any additional comments?

Don't expect much from this book! The narrator makes it much the worst for it. This particular idea could have been made good if written better.

Great Tale

A most enjoyable book. A story of a young lad not much cared for at home. With two older brothers who had no time for him and a father that thought very little of him as well.
The boy has a dream to join the Royal Guards. There is something special about him. In this book he struggles with things he doesn't quite understand about himself.
I found this a bit slow to start but am now hooked wanting to know more of his tale.
The narrator is reasonably good, but is a little monotone at times.
