Good story, poor reading
Would you listen to Steles of the Sky again? Why?
No, because the performance wasn't great and I already know how the book ends. I've got lots of other books I can re-listen to.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the scope. I liked the characters. They had the sort of purity of purpose and iconic qualities that you expect from epic fantasy, but were still rounded and well-built.
What didn’t you like about Celeste Ciulla’s performance?
She would inexplicably pause in the middle of sentences and phrases. It was as though she was reading just a few words at a time, speaking them, then going back for the next handful of words.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I think I chuckled at a couple points. I'm not prone to crying at books, so that's actually doing pretty good on my personal scale.
Any additional comments?
I used whispersync and swapped back and forth between reading and listening, sometimes several times a day. As a mono-lingual English speaker, most of the character names in this series were really unfamiliar. The audiobook helped a lot with getting it where I could picture the pronunciation in my head as I read. However, that also meant there were times when I had to go back to the book and figure out just who a character was because I would never have guessed a particular pronunciation.
That made for a really cool/interesting/different experience.
