Description

Honor and betrayal fuel a caste-shattering revolution in the action-packed new novel from the number one New York Times best-selling author of the Red Rising Trilogy.

Ten years after the events of Morning Star, Darrow and the Rising are battling the remaining Gold loyalist forces and are closer than ever to abolishing the color-coded caste system of Society for good. But new foes will emerge from the shadows to threaten the imperfect victory Darrow and his friends have earned. Pierce Brown expands the size and scope of his impressive Red Rising universe with new characters, enemies, and conflicts among the stars.

Inconsistent Volume and Narration

My review is purely on the quality of the audio book. I have some issues with the story as well, but as I haven't finished it yet, I'm willing to reserve judgment.

Overall, the quality of the audio mixing for this book was pretty bad. From chapter to chapter and sometimes even within chapters, there are noticeable changes in volume that force me to adjust the volume far more often than I'm comfortable with.

My biggest complaint about the audio book though, is with the narrators for the Lysander and Lyria chapters. The narrator who "plays" Lysander speaks in a clipped and businesslike manner, rarely lending any sense of drama to even some of the more dramatic sections. There were times when I wondered if he was paid by the word and was trying to get through it as quickly as possible. By contrast, the Lyria narrator seems to only speak in completely frantic or utterly furious tones (even when narrating very simple sections) to the point that her voice becomes grating and difficult to listen to. Both the Lyria and Lysander narrators seem to pay little attention to punctuation, often running over obvious pauses that sometimes make it difficult to follow dialogue.

I certainly understand why there were four narrators for this book given the story structure, I just find their quality quite disjointed. Tim Gerard Reynolds does a fantastic job in this book as in the previous ones and I thought that the narrator for Effraim is nearly as good. It is to the point where I dread hearing the introduction to a Lysander or Lyria chapter because while I find their stories very interesting, it can feel like a chore to get through them.

Narration Ruined the amazing series

What disappointed you about Iron Gold?

I despised the new narrators. I just listened to 3 books that were masterfully done, then you give me this. I don't understand why you change it up. Tim was so good by himself.

Meh

I absolutely loved the first three books but this was a little lackluster for me. It introduced three new point of view characters with three different narrators, which in concept was a good way to expand the scope of the story but wasn’t executed very well. I honestly didn’t care enough about the new characters for their storylines to hold my attention, save for one. Even Darrow’s chapters were so far removed from the man he was that I didn’t enjoy them. The writing is still beautiful and the world building is still there, but this felt more like the first in a new series in a new time and place than a continuation of the previous. Even then, not much progress was made and it just felt like it was setting up future novels. That is fine for a first book, but not a fourth. I give it a meh and an ehhh.

Too many narrarators

What disappointed you about Iron Gold?

I prefer to have only one person narrate the book. The multiple narrarators detracted and distracted from the book so much that I turned it off after the beginning of the 7th chapter. Booo and shame on them for thinking this was a good idea.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Iron Gold?

Poor performances.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Why change a good thing? Tim Gerard Reynolds did a fine job of the first three books. What made them think it would be a good idea to add an additional 3 persons?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I'm severely disappointed in the portrayal of this book enough that I want a refund. It was not the way I intended to enjoy this book.

Too many narrators Mr. Brown

What made the experience of listening to Iron Gold the most enjoyable?

Tim Gerald Reynolds is a master narrator. Reynolds has already developed the voices for these characters in 3 other books. Adding the other narrators takes away from TGR performance and the Red Rising experience. It does not flow effortlessly like the other books and gets confusing. Missed the mark as far as the audible version is concerned.

Audio needs to be balanced

Story is okay, not up to the standards of the first 3 books. The narrators are okay except the audio really needs to be more balanced. If I have it loud enough to hear the quiet parts, the loud parts are piercing. This make sections of the book almost unbearable.

Problem with narrators, especially Julian Elfer

Julian Elfer (Lysander) was absolutely terrible. I am not sure if it was the recording or Julian, but I had the volume set to max in my car whenever he comes on and I'd still miss half of what he says.

1 narrator please

TGR needs to go back and narrate the entire book. The other narrators completely ruin the experience for me.

Who the Bloodydamn Chose These Narrotors?

Tim Gerard Reynolds is the most perfect gorydamn narrator for the poetry Pierce Brown writes. I cannot even focus on the story, the other narrative is so obnoxious. AUDIBLE FIX THIS!!!

Great book, fix the audio :c

the narration, the story is all great but the audio volume is poorly balanced so it's hard to hear unless you're in a really quiet environment. the loud parts are too loud and the quiet parts are too quiet. can't really listen to it on the go.
