Description

Here starts an adventure that will span lifetimes and worlds. Discover where the story begins. Raymond E. Feist is an internationally best-selling author. My name is Pug. I was once an orphaned kitchen boy, with no family and no prospects, but I am destined to become a master magician….

War is coming to the Kingdom of the Isles from another world, bringing with it chaos and destruction. Pug yearns to train as a warrior and fight for his kingdom alongside his foster-brother, Tomas, but instead he is forced to follow a different path: a path that will lead him right into the heart of the enemy. And one that will change the course of the war - and two worlds - forever. So begins the most epic series in fantasy fiction, a tale that will cross worlds and generations. Magician is the first book in the Riftwar Saga. The trilogy continues with book two, Silverthorn.

Good story, slow reader.

but its bossible to turn up the pace. I used 1.10 speed and then listening was better.

Fantastic story and performance

Peter Joyce does an incredible job reading one of my favourite childhood stories. Thank you Peter for your wonderful voice. The story is of course essential reading for fans of fantasy fiction.

Narrator is not best suited to this book.

The story is an old favourite but the narrator has limited ability to produce believable characters. I was still able to enjoy it as long as I know the story and characters well, and know what they should sound like.

Be transported to a fabulous place

Amazing to hear the characters I fell in love with 3 decades ago. I am thrilled to have this story enriched with voices that capture the individuals and spin their stories onto the rich and complex tapestry that is Magician . Wow. Play that again please.

fantastic story sullied by poor portrayal of women

A truly fantastic story uneccessarily sullied by a mostly shallow portrayal of women as vapid objects of desire. Cringeworthy in this regard at times, otherwise brilliant. Top performance by Peter Joyce.

Epic Story, Awful Narration!

Magician is an epic story with great characters and intriguing plot. Such a shame the narration is so poor. Narrator does not read with context in mind; does emotion poorly; makes teenagers sound like 70 year olds and learned men sound like farmers (though his accents are pretty good). Mistakes have not been corrected and the narrator's constant wet phlegmy voice is awful. If you can look past the dismal narration, it really is an excellent book.

Excellent

Peter Joyce brings live to this amazing world with a 5 star performance.

And as always, Feist's world building is one of the most rewarding experiences as a avid reader. The reason I revisit his entire bibliography ever year.

Great author good reading

I have read the reviews of other listeners and found the negative reviews about Mr. Joyce quite unfair. I enjoyed his reading of this book

eine klasse für sich!

Nach Monaten der Suche und Frustration über misslungene Geschichten oder störende Charaktere in Geschichten bin ich völlig zufällig über eine gestolpert, die ich zuerst skeptisch beobachtet und dann von Minute zu Minute mehr lieben gelernt habe. Nur allzu selten gibt es Bücher, deren Welten mich dazu hinreißen zu träumen und mitzufiebern. magician ist ein Meisterwerk mit glaubwürdigen Charakteren, von denen man gegen Ende fasst meint sie schon ein Leben lang zu kennen, zwei Welten, die anfangs nicht unterschiedlicher sein könnten, jedoch gegen Ende wie zwei Teile eines ganzen Wirken, ein Werk mit Elfen, Zwergen, Drachen, goblins und allem zwischendrin, ein Werk das mich Nächte nicht hat schlafen lassen, ABER vorallem ein Werk dass seine Geschichte so zufriedenstellend abschließt, dass man nicht das Gefühl an der sprichwörtlichen Klippe hängen zu bleiben! Danke an das Genie, dass sich tag für Tag um die Ohren gehauen hat um mir die Freude zu bereiten an dieser Welt Teil gehabt zu haben!
Honor to your house stranger !

Eine Reise die ich nur jedem empfehlen kann.

Midkemia, diese Welt besuchte ich eins als Kind. Seid dem habe ich alles gelesen was sich um die Midkemia Saga von Raymond Feist dreht.
Dies jetzt nochmal in einem Hörbuch von vorne zu verfolgen ist einfach wunderbar!
Der Sprecher ist angenehm und bringt ein bisschen Abwechslung mit ein. Die Geschichte ist... Riesig, Mitreißend, Spannend. Sie enthält alles was eine gute Fantasy Saga benötigt.
Ich mag nicht viel voraus nehmen aber ihr werdet mit Thomas, Pug, Arutha atemberaubende Abenteuer erleben.

Exciting, fantastic and well presented!!!

This is a very exciting Fantasy-story that goes far beyond unknown worlds of culture, politics, intrigues, creatures and magic. It is about friendship, courage and honor.

Richtig gute Unterhaltung

Gute und kurzweilige Geschichte, sehr gut gelesen. Hat viel Spaß gemacht zuzuhören. Einzige negative Anmerkung, ich wünsche mir etwas mehr Tiefe bei den Charakteren. Die guten dürfen auch mal schlecht sein oder nicht so gute Dinge tun. Ansonsten ist es eine sehr abwechslungsreiche Geschichte mit ein paar neuen Ideen.
Hörenswert!

more diversion in the "says" department please :-)

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Magician besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

Raymond E. Feist created a wonderful start for his "Riftwar Cycle" with this book which is superbly told by Peter Joyce bringing the characters to life.
I really liked this audible and would have loved it were there not the thing with the "says".
I don't know whethér it was written this way or it was an improvisation on Mr. Joyce's side but the everpresent "says" is a bit of a bummer here :-/
This didn't sop me from enjoying the book though and i more often than not listened to it for several hours at a time.

Great book and narrator! I'm already looking forward to the next one of the series!

für Jugendliche

Die Story ist leider mehr für Jugendliche. Nicht mein Fall. Sprecher ist gut und alles wirkt gut durchdacht.

Master E. Feist is a magician himself!!

Never boring wit enough detail and depth to leave nothing unclear. The law of this universe is piece by piece put together and leaves ample room for more epic tales of future and past. It is a world I like to visit again.
