Not as good as the first book, but still not bad.

Would you consider the audio edition of Blue Adept to be better than the print version?

Yes, the narrarator does a good job and improves on what was written with his voice acting.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The characters need more development. Piers Anthony books read more like a transcript of a D&D game that a novel. All he does is present a scenario and show how the character uses his skills to solve it. The characters are all very one dimensional, if he developed characters more the story would be better. That being said the author is very good at what he does. He makes a ton of money and doesn't have much motivation to change.

Have you listened to any of Traber Burns’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, the narrarator does a good job as always.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?

The story is much weaker than the first novel, but this one is still worth a listen, especially if you are like me and are re-living books you loved as a child. Be warned the writing quality of the series is bad after this one. I would not advise going beyond the third book. The series reaches a satisfying close and all the books beyond that are not good at all. they seem like the author was just churning anything out with the series name for a buck.

- Cliff "I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help."

I love this series.

Piers Anthony has a masterpiece in this story. The story switches between 2 worlds with different cultures, purposes, and plots, that Anthony keeps integrated and interrelated around his main character, Stile.

The action is continuous. The characters are fun. Their problems are interesring, the solutions unique and ingenious.

Traber Burns is an excellent narrater. His performance creates an immersive experience. The book comes alive.
