What made the experience of listening to Earthsea the most enjoyable?
I hove long loved this series and now can listen to it in a new way.
What did you like best about this story?
It is a well-done adaptation. As such it condenses the overall story into a presentation worthy of the long cherished series.
Have you listened to any of Toby Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
While I had not previously heard Toby Jones perform, I will be looking for more of his works.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
While you could enjoy this in one sitting, it matters not for you will enjoy it nonetheless.
Any additional comments?
Chapter 6 will awe you!

I liked this very much. The voices were lovely; I could hear the affection between Ged and Tenar. Despite some (heartbreaking) cuts of content, I felt they got to the soul of the books and the simplicity of the last few lines was beautiful.
What did you like most about Earthsea?
It's a great audiobook for people who are already familiar with the Earthsea material, simply because there are less explanatory passages and more action. However, this does not detract from the quality and I highly recommend it for fans of the series.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Folk who know the story already...hopeless to follow otherwise..confusing..tried twice but still confusing
Would you ever listen to anything by Ursula le Guin again?
Yes, very much. I'd just choose a more 'straight' version where l might just follow the text.
What didn’t you like about Toby Jones’s performance?
I just got confused about who was who, the plot, the characters.....just lost it. So difficult to follow and hard work.
What character would you cut from Earthsea?
Hard to say, didn't really get any of them
Any additional comments?
I know this is a well known, liked, and respected book. Maybe l just need to try a different version or actually read it myself

This is a fantastic novel which I have read many times. Like all BBC radio plays this has been done wonderfully with perfect music and excellent vocal performances.
Sadly they have chopped so much of the book as to lose the book.
It's really a travesty, a beautiful easy to listen to travesty.
