Description

Censured at the Council of Nikaea for his flagrant use of sorcery, Magnus the Red and his Thousand Sons Legion retreat to their homeworld of Prospero to continue their use of the arcane arts in secret.

But when the ill-fated primarch forsees the treachery of Warmaster Horus and warns the Emperor with the very powers he was forbidden to use, the Master of Mankind dispatches fellow primarch Leman Russ to attack Prospero itself. But Magnus has seen more than the betrayal of Horus and the witnessed revelations will change the fate of his fallen Legion, and its primarch, forever.

Horrible narrator made me stop listening

What did you like best about A Thousand Sons? What did you like least?

A book about the Burning of Prospero and the Thousand Sons!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I couldn't make it to the ending because the mewling, nasally voice of the narrator made me abandon the book after 2.5 chapters. He makes every character, men and women alike, sound like simpering, whiny children after they've been scolded.

How could the performance have been better?

Get a different narrator, preferably Toby Longworth who can actually capture the spirit and mood of the 41st Millennium.

Was A Thousand Sons worth the listening time?

Considering I couldn't make it through the book, I really can't say.

get a better narrator!

So out of all the 40k books ive listened to or read this one took the longest. the names of characters were too complex that they did not even seem human and this made following certain events confusing. but what reallky made it difficult to finish this Audio book was the narrator. the only change of voice he used for different characters was an increase in his volume, so it sometimes leaves you wondering as to whos talking.

Couldn't even finish it

I've heard that this was a good book, but the narrator did such a terrible job that it couldn't hold my attention past the first couple of chapters.
This is one that should be redone with a real professional narrator who can capture the essence of the 30k/40k verse. Toby Longworth, Jonathan Keeble, John Banks, Gareth Armstrong or David Timson are all much better narrators, far superior to Martyn Ellis.

Looks like I'll be getting the kindle version

Got about 5 chapters in before giving up. I can't really comment on how the book is yet, but the narrator really isn't very good.

Compared to the likes of Toby Longworth, David Timson and Gareth Armstrong, Martyn Ellis just doesn't shape up.

I'm sure there are books where his particular way of speaking is perfectly acceptable, but it is not here. I will be refunding this one and urge anyone that wants to read Thousand Sons to just get it on kindle instead.

Narrator doesn't do it justice

I've been going through the Horus heresy series, and it was tough to listen to this. I think as the rest of the series the narrator is slower in pace and has a more baritone pitch this throws you off.

Good story. Bad narrator.

The narrator reads to fast, and with little emotion. Listening at 90% speed made it more tolerable.

Bad Narrator, Good Book

The narrator sounds like he has a lisp and is talking through a phone. it almost drags down one of the better HH books.

Narration made this impossible to listen to.

The narration was simply abysmal.
I don't blame the narrator 100%. This was poorly directed and produced. The pacing of his narration was so rapid and poorly done that is was impossible to tell sometime when a new scene had started. I don't understand how this was allowed to happen.
The accents everyone has were far too similar and added to the mess that the pacing started.

This is a shame because I love this story, having read the book, previously. The Thousand Sons are my favorite chapter, and their story is awesome, but this attempt at an Audible book is a complete failure.

Skip this one. Either read it yourself, or get the story notes from the Wiki.

Horrible Remembrancer

I would give the voice performer a zero, if I could. While listening, I tried to find an analogy to describe how bad it was..it was like a military adjutant reciting a story, for 12 hours
Such a shame too, the story has many lore aspects that are first being told with specifics: Legion XV, Magnus and Ahriman, Leman Russ, Emperor, Ullanor, Nikaea, Censure etc...and written by Graham..
BL needs to redo this audio book with a different talent, stat

Spannend & Packend

Dieses Hörbuch ist super spannend. Die Hintergrundgeschichte der Thousand Sons ist packend, mitreißend und tragisch zugleich. Der Sprecher schafft es, diesem Hörbuch und all seinen Charakteren Leben einzuhauchen

By far the best book in the 40k universe

Going through this book a second time has made me appreciate the tragedy even more.
Everything about this book is simply perfect. Writing, content, length, character development...

A must read!

Lore at its best

Cool story about the background of the Thousand Sons. Depicts how the immaterium and psikers might work. Good read. Maybe they are no traitors after all.
