So out of all the 40k books ive listened to or read this one took the longest. the names of characters were too complex that they did not even seem human and this made following certain events confusing. but what reallky made it difficult to finish this Audio book was the narrator. the only change of voice he used for different characters was an increase in his volume, so it sometimes leaves you wondering as to whos talking.

What did you like best about A Thousand Sons? What did you like least?
A book about the Burning of Prospero and the Thousand Sons!
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I couldn't make it to the ending because the mewling, nasally voice of the narrator made me abandon the book after 2.5 chapters. He makes every character, men and women alike, sound like simpering, whiny children after they've been scolded.
How could the performance have been better?
Get a different narrator, preferably Toby Longworth who can actually capture the spirit and mood of the 41st Millennium.
Was A Thousand Sons worth the listening time?
Considering I couldn't make it through the book, I really can't say.

The narrator (Martyn Ellis) is lacking in capturing the audience unlike some of the horus heresy narrators.
he reads it to quick and doesn't act out the voices.
So I'm very disappointed with the audio book.
Brilliant story telling and pacing. The best book I have read in the series of Horus Heresy so far.
