How could the performance have been better?
Different narrator would be a plus. John Lee would have done indescribably better.
Any additional comments?
I first read this book as a kid many years ago. A true classic of the fantasy genre, it captivated me at the time. To the date, I still believe it to be imaginative and magical in a distinctive and alluring way.
However, narration by Jim Roberts is outright awful: the overall rhythm is way off, his enunciation is only marginally better than that of a speech simulator of the late 90s, he appears to disregard punctuation (or invents his own), and too often he fails to put the right emphasis in a sentence or a paragraph, treating words as if they were written on separate note cards instead of complete sentences. Overall, the narration sounds annoyingly unnatural.
