Description

In a fantasy world as rich and real as our own, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell stand against the ancient forces which besiege the New World - forces so terrible that when last they threatened, they could only be withstood by sealing off the Old World from whence they came. Now the barrier has been breached, and the New World is again beset by their evil power.

War, monsters, and treachery plague the world, and only Richard and Kahlan can save it from an armageddon of unimaginable savagery and destruction.

Terry Goodkind, author of the brilliant fantasy bestsellers of the Sword of Truth series, has created his most masterful epic yet, a sumptuous feast of magic and excitement replete with the wonders of his unique fantasy vision.

Epic edge: listen to more in the Sword of Truth series.

Audible needs to redo narration for consistency

The blame lies with Audible. They’ve already spent their money for the narration of a blockbuster book series and don’t want to redo it.

Why would they change narrators so often? Why would they not redo a series that still continues to be of tremendous interest to Audible customers? Why?

Audible recognizes this fault and has the final books of the series all narrated by Sam Tsoutsouvas. But when they ask Audible customers to pay $300 for the series, it is an insult that they refuse to redo the original books to have the same consistency.

Zed turns Irish in this book, and in the books after this one other narrators pronounce main characters’ names totally differently from every other book. Audible should pay the audio studio to have the main narrator redo these first books for consistency. Turning Irish or mispronouncing names isn’t the fault of the narrator, it’s the responsibility of Audible to provide consistency in their narration. Why would you take a famous series and let the characters change from book to book by bad production management? Many, including me, may not continue the series (with its large price tag) because of this bad move by Audible.

Please redo books with same narrator.

Story arcs tie in and more to look forward to!

I like how the story lines tie in a bit more in this book...but, also a few more new story arcs begin, keeps it very interesting and never boring, with the exception of the Narrator! Please go back and have Sam Tsoutsouvas(?) re-record these audio books! He is truly the best Narrator for Mr. Goodkind's books in this series!

Narrator... From bad to worse in this book

OK, I got hooked with "Wizard's First Rule", and bought the next two books right away. I had to really struggle through the 2nd book because of the terrible narration. The story was great, but the narration of Jim Bond was the worst I have ever heard. On a scale of 1 to 100, I wouldn't have given him even a 007. After forcing myself to listen to this guy for over 38 hours, I couldn't wait to start "The Blood Of The Fold", becase I knew it had a different narrator and knew it couldn't get much worse... Well, it did. After less than 15 minutes I had to turn it off. Not only does Buck Schimer pronounce names differently, his voice just grates on you, and to top it off... He has a lisp! I couldn't take it any longer. I don't know who chooses the narrator for these books, but what would have been wrong with keeping the same guy for all of them? Then I looked, and books 4 and 5 both have a new and different narrator. What's up with that? Are they just trying to run off their listeners? This book is probably as good as the others, but I am afraid I will have to buy it in paper form and read it to find out.

Finally!!!

I am very pleased to say that this is the first book in the series to live up to the hype. I found myself listening to the book even when I wasn't at the gym or driving, which is a good indicator of a book that draws you into the story.

I think the main factor that made this book worthwhile was the stories of the supporting characters. The intrigues at the Palace kept me wanting to find out more, and I think that Verna and Warren, as well as many of the supporting characters, show far more depth than we've seen in previous books.

Ann, Nathan and Zed's plot line was also fun to follow, and this is the first book where I really began to like Zed (I think the poor narration in the first book gave me a dislike for his character). I think that Nathan might prove to be a very interesting character as well, if he's given the right plot lines.

Even Richard's plotline was interesting, as in this book they finally appear to make consequences for some of the more idiotic things he does (although in the end it ended up being the perfect thing for him to do, but for a while they seemed to be slightly more realistic with him).

One of the best advancements in this book was the villains. The sisters of the dark's plotline kept me intrigued, and I couldn't wait to get more details on the Emperor (what powers did he have, what supporting characters did he have on his side), as well as the BoTF plotline.

My only hope is that the rest of the series is like this one, and not like the first two. If so then my faith in TG will be restored, as it was nearly destroyed by the first two books.

One note; did I hear correct? Ann's horse was named Bella? And TG says he never read WoT!

"Blood of the Fold"

My Biggest Complaint on this Book is the Nararator.... It would help if he would have listened to the previous "3" books before trying to read this one.... In the first 2 1/2 minutes of the book I was in Awe as to how many times he can pronounce a name wrong. As I progressed through it I come to find out the guys is completely inept at pronunciation. He can't say a name the same way twice. He NEEDS to listen to previous works before attempting to read a continuing Saga.I am 2 hours into the first part of the book and am debating getting hard copy so i dont have to listen to him Butcher this Book any further. I am disappointed beyond all recognition and if I ever see a book in my list with this Nararator I WILL NOT LISTEN TO IT.This book needs to be re-read by a compitent Nararator. I Love the Series, But this Nararator is not the best choice. I cant wait for this book to be Over so i can hear the next Book from a more Adept Nararator..

Narrator not that bad

Before I bought this book the reviews had me scared that the narration would be unbearable. The truth is, it's not that bad. It takes some time to get used to, especially considering the fact that my last book was Wizard's First Rule (which had great narration!). But, after only a few minutes, an hour at most, I was acclimated to the style and enjoyed it very much. The book is a little more graphic than the first (hard to believe) and while good, was a bit long winded. Some of the subplots and characters were left unfinished/underdeveloped and the ending came quickly without much closure. However, being that there are several more books in the series it makes sense that alot is left open for the next installment. Overall, a nice easy listen that keeps you engaged throughout.

Good

Everyone says the guys voice is really bad but it's actually alright. I would have appreciated a bit more emotion from him but he wasn't bad.

story is great but the narrator is terrible

If you could sum up Blood of the Fold in three words, what would they be?

epic story. horrible narrator.

Did Buck Schirner do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

the narrator from the first book was GREAT, but the one in second book was iffy and this one is terrible. i fear how the next one will be if this trend continues.

it just went on and on and on

The narrator did well, considering the material was pretty ordinary. I like long 'epic' books, but this one actually felt LONG. It was like the author was dragging the word count out so that it was similar in length to the previous books, but had nothing more to write about. The plot was predictable and certainly not Goodkind's best work.

Anfangs störte mich dieser Sprecher

Anfangs störte mich dieser Sprecher da seine Stimme so unterschiedlich zu den vorherigen klang. Er gibt dem Buch allerding sehr viel leben und wünsche mir dass er noch weitere Bücher dieser Reihe spricht.
