Not sure if it was the story or the narrator but I could not finish this story. I was bored with in 10 minutes of the story and I know that with fantasy you sometimes have to give it a little time. With the combination of the narrator and the story could not keep my attention. Maybe it would have been good if I had read it instead of listened to. Narrator read a bit too fast and has a very rumbly tone that made me space out when he talked so I didn’t know who was who and what was going on. I would have returned it but I have had it in my library forever.
If you could sum up Forged in Death in three words, what would they be?
Captivating Fantasy Tale
What did you like best about this story?
The story follows an array of encounters which brings the main character into contact with many and varied other characters. The characters are well developed with depth to their personalities and interactions. Although a fantasy novel in its central theme, the book is interlaced with suspense, drama, mystery, action, (a wee bit of sex 18+). Thus, the story is not boring or narrow in its focus. It is moderately paced, keeping the listener engaged while moving the story along.
What about Phil Ross’s performance did you like?
I actually read the book before buying the audio edition. Hence, I found Phil Ross's performance brought the story to life. He does a great job in distinguishing the voices among the various characters and the narration is anything but mundane. Phil's use of inflections brings the story alive.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were several scenes in the book that sparked varied emotions, from sorrow, disappointment, excitement, humor, etc. I enjoyed the entire story!
Any additional comments?
I truly enjoyed reading/listening to "Forged in Death" by Jim Melvin. It is the type of story that keeps you looking for the next book and the next. Jim Melvin does a wonderful job of creating a world, populating it with diverse characters with depth, and then blending them all into a fantastic fantasy. Thank Jim Melvin.
