Story Good, Narrator Bad
It always take a few minutes to adjust to a narrator, especially if I've never listen to them before, but I just couldn't adjust to Matt Franklin. His voice detracted from the story for me. I felt as though he was taking himself too seriously, as though his acting was more important than the actual tale.
It reminded my of Tigana. Also a bit of Virconium, but I didn't like that book, and I did like Thol-ra.
Oddly enough, yes. I listened to samples of some of his other performances, and they seemed much better. It must just be the way he reads these SnowRaven Chronicles I can't stand.
This isn't my usual cup of tea, but I enjoyed the story.
A well done quest!
