Great story! Slow narration.

Any additional comments?

This is one of my favorite books, you have no idea how happy I am to have it in audiobook! Karral's journey from horse boy to secretary to well where he ends up is a journey I love to take over and over.

I was slightly disappointed in the performance however. The narration is slow. Just enough to frustrate me. Thankfully I listen on audible's app and I was able to increase the speed to 1 and 1/2 speed. This makes all but a few sentences sound normal paced. Those sentences usually being an excited quote. Anyway thanks to this feature I was able to listen and love one of my favorite books.

disappointing narration

It was hard to listen to the narrator, who had a cold. Also his character voices were lame, and he even mispronounced key terms in the story...Very disappointing.
