The Crow by Alison Croggan

I enjoyed this book very much but was very disappointed that the narrator was not the same as the previous two books of Pellinor. I can see why a man was felt to be more suitable for this volume, but Colin Moody's voice is not an easy one to listen to. After enjoying Eloise Oxer's reading of the first two books of Pellinor, Colin Moody was a big disappointment!

I really, really enjoyed listening to the first two books in this series. I've gotten well hooked on Maerad's journey and want to know what happens. As a writer myself, I understand the importance, when you have several key characters, to delve into each one's story and bring them all together at the end.

But the change in narrator, for me, makes this book impossible to listen to. I had so very much gotten into the tone and rhythm of Eloise Oxer's voice, that this change to a male narrator was very, very jarring and shocking.

I get that as this book is mostly about the male characters, and so might be read best with a male voice, it just doesn't work for me. Colin Moody entire pace and accent is all wrong when compared to the previous 2 books. I found speeding it up to 1.25 speed helped some, but not enough.

I've made the decision to skip this book all together and move on to the final book. I hope there is enough preamble in that book to fill in some of the missing pieces. If not, will just have to make it up as I go.

Read like a series of lists

The story is fantastic. The narration lacks affect except for generic nondescript foreign accents. I have listened to the other books in this series 2 or 3 times but I haven't been able to listen to this past a few chapters. Why they didn't stay with Eloise Oxer makes no sense to me.
