Great story! Slow narration.
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.
Wonderful story brought low by the narrator
Yes, the narrator. He doesn't have a wide enough range for a book with a large cast.
The narrator is weird choice for this series. He have a lovely deep voice, but this a series with a very young man as the lead. But my biggest problem is he seemed to only have two ways of differentiating characters - either making his already deep voice even deeper and more booming or making his voice whispery sinister. I can get past any pronunciation issues, that sort of thing does not knock me out of the story but it took me well into the 2nd book of the series to get over the voices. A voice that is described in text as a young mans voice should not be preformed as wheezy asthmatic and elderly
