Poor narrator, maybe good story

I think the story might be good, if not for the narrator. Very monotone, odd cadence and pronunciation of some words. It shows that a good story can be ruined by a poor narrator 😒

An enchanting story

What did you love best about Magic of Thieves?

I enjoyed the tale and the characters. I felt like they were acquaintances after the first few chapters.


What other book might you compare Magic of Thieves to and why?

I saw similarities with many different saga types I have read but with a unique twist and an air of mystery surrounding the players


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

This is where I found the biggest fault with this production. The narrator lacked any semblance of emotion or ability to inflect her voice to show the difference in feeling coming from the parts read. Also, disappointing was her lack of vocabulary and mispronunciation of several words repeatedly. I would relate her narration to a monotone with no feeling.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I was able to finish listening to the story in one sitting while I groomed the dog.


Any additional comments?

I really would like to read the next book in this series but I would rather not hear it read to me by this inadequate narrator.
