Sloppy Story and Flat Narrator

Would you try another book from Richard Lee Byers and/or Kevin Kraft?

Oddly, I have listened to Richard Lee Byers' Brotherhood of the Griffon and those books have a better theme, political intrigue and characters (although Aoth is shared).Kevin Kraft was just not very good. He uses a good variety of voice for each character... but it's just not good. There is a lisp (intentional or not) that is pretty bad. Voices sound pretty flat and uninspiring.


Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Lee Byers again?

I recommend the Brotherhood of the Griffon series. The stories and characters are more enjoyable.


What didn’t you like about Kevin Kraft’s performance?

Nothing. He has good range in characters but they sound horrible.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Unclean?

Scenes are fine but I why does the reader care? We were never given enough to care about the story or the characters... and I am a huge realms fan. Szazz stuff was interesting but too little.


Any additional comments?

The story is immediately split into three intertwined stories that are suppose to come together by the end. A good example of this is Elaine Cunningham (which she does very nicely). For some reason I felt like this was disjointed and never really made sense (like, why am I still listening, I don't care what happens in the story).
