I should have stuck with the written word

I read the Black Magician's Trilogy and enjoyed it very much. However I fear that in switching to an audio book for the follow up titles I have messed with the pictures and sounds that I developed in my head for this world.

The narration simply did not fit well with my preconceptions of what the story should be about and I found myself being annoyed with the telling of the story.

The writing and story line in this next instalment of the series is not as strong as the first trilogy. Introducing some of the characters sexual preferences has been done rather clumsily and struck me as tokenism.

I will pursue this second trilogy but think I will switch back to the written word to complete the story.

Talking About Chick Lit, Talking and Talking and..

Listen to the five minute sample. In the first hour and a half that does not change. Oh, you have other characters talking, but it is the same. They talk about feelings and the weather and grass growing and... I got too impatient to go longer than an hour and a half.

Canavan has several books at Audible, several in different languages. Most of her ratings are over 4 points, so there is a happy audience for her books, but it is not what I care for.

I actually liked the narrator, but several did not. I guess I am 100% off on this.
