What made the experience of listening to The Chronicles of Dragon Collection: Series 1 Omnibus, Books 1-10 the most enjoyable?
The story is good, and it moves along really well. At first its really non stop action, it almost feels forced. I guess the author was using battle type scenes as his tool for character development. About a 1/3 of the way through the book the characters split and start having different story lines. Nothing new there, but the switching back and forth happened to often for me. I understand why you switch scenes right before something is about to happen but it was literally every 3 to 4 minutes for a while, it was very distracting.
Any additional comments?
This is a performance where there is lots of sound effects. It can be entertaining and add to the book, if done well. The sound effects where done well but when they where added into the recording during production the volume levels where not paid attention to. This over sight made the book really hard to listen to it would go from incredibly loud to barely being able to hear what someone is saying.

loved the background audio as it helped draw me more into the story. I did not want thus to end. I want to know where brenwar and nath go next

...and a bit disappointed. The quality of the recording is, well, odd. There is the narrator speaking in your ear, and then the characters who sound like they are in a pillow case about 20 feet away. Just bizarre. And - judging on length of this book - I thought it would be an adult fantasy book... Perhaps in the Terry pratchet style, or Tolkien. But no. This seems to be aimed at the same crowd as the Twilight series, except I can't imagine a teen having the patience for a 50 hour book? Anyway it's not great, but it's OK. Get it with a credit, don't buy it.

Well I lasted 20 minute of this book, and I'll explain why.
Picture the scene you are 8 years old and playing D&D for the 1st time, the DM starts to tell you a story and has a whole range of sound effect from bolts being shot from a crossbow, heavy breathing of main character running, to crickets chirping in the night, that’s how this book comes across, and all this in 20 mins of story starting.
If you are a serious fantasy reader/listener and love the depth and complexity that many authors are able to create with just words alone i.e. Brandon Sanderson and the Stormlight archives series – the near constant sound effects, and music in chronicles of the dragon will drive you nuts.

Sadly I found the back ground sound effects poorly done. Story and narration was good but spoilt by silly sounds at times.
I don't know if this is supposed to be for adults or children but I loved it
