Still Good, but narration got weaker

The final book of the Chronicles of Dragon Lance. The Final battles of Good and Evil. It will end here, for good or ill, for at least most of the companions of our D&D tale. The War of the Lance completes. Magic, sneaking, spying, War, interpersonal conflicts, conflicts of morality and of the soul all in this book. It is still a great story even after all these years.

The narration however seemed to weaken. Characters and statements that should have been said with strength almost seem whiny. The narration itself is decent, but it feels as if the narrator did not take the time to consider the situation and the emotions behind the situation and instead just read the book. The characters even didn't have as much distinction between them as they did in the first and second books.

Great book. Poor performance.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Re-record it with a narrator that isn't going to mispronounce half the names or attempt to add unnecessary drama by constantly pausing/starting/stopping. If it were a boat ride, I'd be sea-sick.


What did you like best about this story?

The BOOK is great.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Boehmer?

Anyone that can read and speak English as their native language.


What character would you cut from Dragons of Spring Dawning?

Not a single one.


Any additional comments?

As previously stated, the books are fantastic but I wouldn't be able to recommend this audiiobook unless it was re-recorded with a new narrator.
