it was really good once I started to understand the book
I thought the story was OK. I couldn't get excited by the main characters other quests. The narrator had a good accent, but I felt he was too monotone that either didn't keep my focus or interest. I will not continue this series.
This is the most Jungian fantasy story perhaps ever. I enjoyed it immensely, and yet somehow I often felt it was missing something.
I felt like I was entering a beautiful house, with wainscotting, and tapestries, and yet why did someone forget to put a roof on this house? And why is their no washroom in this house? What exactly the story is missing, and why it feels half finished is a little harder to express in declarative language. Still, it feels incomplete, and though I appreciate the skill of the author and beauty of the creation, I would never return to it again; just as I would never return to a bed and breakfast where it rained on my head and there was nowhere to wash.
Listened to this one in a single setting. Only complaint is that it ended. Look forward to starting the next one.
Toally enjoyed both the story and the narrator! Kept my interest, good characters.
I love Ursula Le Guin’s writing and now I love it more! This narrator, Rob Inglis, just brings her story to life! So glad I chose a listen i stead of a read. And I have never said that because I live reading!
And BTW it is an awesome book too!
wonderful writing and compelling story
