Fantastic story

Any additional comments?

This was a fantastic story and was the first Dragonlance novel I have ever read/listened to. I was drawn to Raistlin's character, and now I am very interested in reading further Dragonlance novels that feature Raistlin to see where his story goes from here.

There are many fantastic characters in this book. The twins, Raistlin and Caramon, are very interesting dichotomies of each other, and I found myself liking both characters. I also loved the Kender race, and the Kender nature makes me smile; the rambling, cheery tales and behavior by a Kender in this story have made me laugh out loud,serving as comedic relief.

The performance was excellent, and I listened with ferocity, breezing through the entire novel in just a few days.

My Favorite Character

I have loved the Dragon Lance books since I was a teenager. I have loved Raistlin since then as well. I was beyond happy when these books first came out as it was a story of him and his life in more detail then you get in the other books. That is the basic premises of these books and if you know Raistlin but do not know theses stories you will find you did not really know Raistlin.

I am very VERY happy to say the narration did not ruin this book, as I am often afraid of when listening to old favorites. They changed the character voices such that you could distinguish them and better then that the voices fit the personalities of the characters very very well. I will actually look for more books by this narrator and hope he continues to perform as well as he did in this book.
