Having listened to previous Feist titles with Joyce as the narrator, whilst Bates is good he isn't a scratch on Joyce.
Asides from that, it just isn't quite top notch Feist: Ray himself said that the ending is so unfinished due to Steve Sterling being very late to his deadline, and generally quite uncooperative...
What did you like most about Jimmy the Hand?
This is a book that details the origins of Jimmy the hand, one of the most iconic characters in the riftwar saga. The archetypal rogue, he goes from one adventure to another seamlessly. Its great to have a story from the perspective of the cunning thief for once, instead of the same old daring adventurers, or goody-good party out to save the world. Jimmy is in it for his own interest and has only his wits to keep him alive, very tense scenes and lots of intrigue await. This is a true gem
What did you like best about this story?
The new perspective, and the way Jimmy manipulates his environment and resources to get what he wants. A detailed character study, with great delivery, allowing you to become involved in the psychology of the main character. Very fun.
What does Matt Bates bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Brings life to the scenes and to the struggles of each character, with an animated tone.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes of course
Any additional comments?
An excellent read or listen, recommended for fans of raymond e feist, fantasy novels, or general thievery
It's a slow start but a good little side story.
Shame that Jarvis Coe doesn't turn up again in the saga as he's quite a cool character.
Performance is entertaining.
not bad at all narrative was ok but a bit fast in some areas but all in all a good read.
