Description

The Dragonbone Chair: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Kitchen-boy Simon is bored, restless and 14 years old - a dangerous combination. It seems, however, that his life has just taken a turn for the better when he's apprenticed to his castle's resident wizard. As Simon's learning to read and write under Doctor Morgenes' tutelage, forces greater than he could possibly imagine are gathering: forces which will change Simon's life - and his world - forever.

Following the death of Good King John, Osten Ard is plunged into civil war as his sons battle for control of the fabled Dragonbone Chair - the country's throne as well as the symbol of its power. Simon is forced to flee the only home he has ever known, a journey which will test him beyond his worst nightmares. 

With The Dragonbone Chair, Tad Williams introduced the incredible fantasy world of Osten Ard and kicked off the beloved, internationally best-selling series Memory, Sorrow and Thorn.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Exceptionally good reading

I enjoyed this audiobook because the story is intricate and all the characters are well described. However, I have just a small negative comment regarding the book track sound environment. Globally it is very good and makes the imaginary travel in the book easier and captivating, but during a few short passages, the background sound was too loud and did not allow to understand what the reader was saying. Andrew Wincott is also an exceptional reader. His capacity to impersonate the different characters with so different voices and accents is very impressive. I will certainly buy other audiobooks with him as the reader. So enjoy yourself if you decide to buy this audio book !

Felt Like I was in Osten Ard Myself!

A great start to the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn series of Tad Williams! The music, sound effects, and ambience made the listening experience more immersive -- felt as though you're in the world of Osten Ard with Simon himself haha. Looking forward to listening to the Booktrack versions of Stone of Farewell and Green Angel Tower! :)

This really came through great!

Amazing book and great story. Hands down to the author who did fantastically in writing this book. I wasn't sure at first why I was hearing things aside from the narrator (not sure what to expect when i heard music in the background.) but then as I went on listening, it came together as the addition of the music and background music added impact in capturing the story. It was easy to understand even when I was doing something else aside from listening. very enjoying and great book. would recommend this to others.

Great story, horrible sound effects

the sounds effects are poorly added, and instead of enhancing the experience are hindering it. It is sometimes hard to hear or understand the narrator above the music.

Story didn't hold my interest.

I had this book recommended to me as something to follow up A Song of Ice and Fire, and was eager to jump into its world. The narration here is fantastic, and I did enjoy the sound effects, but the story got boring and tropey for me once the main character left the castle. The fantasy story tropes I can understand, given the books are so old, they likely invented some of them and were fresh in their time, but today's audience might not be so impressed. The names of places and characters are difficult to sort out if you find you want to search them up later to find out more about a particular character or race. Hearing them said isn't always going to help you figure out how they're spelled! I've decided not to continue on to the next book, which is sad, because I had really hoped to get into this series. The characters and their plight just didn't grab me, unfortunately.

Book, great; sountrack, sucks

I've loved this book series since its publication, but as an audiobook, the soundtrack is maddeningly infuriating, and unnecessarily distractive. The narrator by himself would've been more than enough,
