    Description

    Sonea is caught up in a confrontation between the hated Guild magicians and the angry youth of the slums. To her dismay, she discovers that she possesses the same powers as the reviled magicians. To avoid capture, she must seek protection from the city's feared underworld, The Thieves. In return, she must use her powers for them, but her magic never seems to do quite what she intends it to.

    "The first part of the Black Magician Trilogy, this captivating tale has already been hailed by critics as a 'must for lovers of good fantasy'." ( Marie Claire)

    Histoire magnifique mais lecture médiocre

    Qu'avez-vous particulièrement aimé dans le livre audio The Magician's Guild ?

    J'ai particulièrement aimé l'histoire imaginée par Trudi Canavan

    Qu'avez-vous aimé le plus dans cette histoire ?

    La partie qui concerne Sonea est la plus intéressante mais d'avoir l'histoire de Dannyl en parallèle est quand même sympag

    Qu'est-ce que vous n'avez pas aimé dans la performance de Richard Aspel ?

    La façon dont il lit avec un ton parfois très plat et sans différence entre la partie histoire et le moment où les personnages parlent. Je ne peux m'empêcher de comparer avec la performance de Stephen Fry dans la série des Harry Potter.

    Si vous faisiez une adaptation de ce livre audio au cinéma, quel en serait le slogan ?

    The High Lord magic / La magie du Magicien Noir

    Avez-vous d'autres commentaires ?

    Quel dommage que le troisième livre n'existe pas en version intégrale.

    kept my attention!

    I hesitated to get this book because of the review about the narrator, but I read Magician's Apprentice (new hardcover) first, like it, and decided to try the audio book. I am enjoying it very much, and the narrator seems fine to me. The harsher voice (described by another reader as a smoker's voice) reminds me somewhat of Jim Dale-though he is in a category by himself!- the book is certainly worth reading, and I intend to get the rest of the series.

    The book is like a wooden roller coaster...

    STORY:
    This book is like a wooden roller coaster ride. It starts out slow: Some people complain that it is boring while others just enjoy the view. However, like the wooden roller coaster, once you crest the first and tallest hill things really pick up.

    I set this book down twice and I'm glad I picked it up the third time. I started listening to it at night when I was trying to fall asleep, and at first it was great for that...

    READER/VOICE ACTOR(S):
    Other reviews have mentioned the 'monotone voice' of the reader. This reader uses a very monotone voice as the 'narrator voice'.

    This reader uses many voices for the different characters (and you can recognize which character speaks by the voice the reader uses!) as the characters are introduced into the book. There is more narration at the start of the book, setting things up, than the rest of the book.

    =-=-=-=
    My Personal; About This Book:

    Each night I would find the beginning of the last chapter I could remember hearing and start there, and listen again until I fell asleep...

    ... In the early chapters I fell asleep pretty quickly (not 'because' of the book, but the sound of someone reading muffled other sounds, and the images I formed in my head helped me to forget about stuff I had to do the next day or other worries I had)...

    ... However, about the third or fourth night I found the book was keeping me awake. I had to stop listening to it at night because I found myself staying awake to find out what happened 'next'!

    The book had me cheering for 'both sides' of 'the conflict'.
    =-=-=-=
    Review Wrap Up:

    I can understand why some people gave it a low rating, and if you just don't like slow starts then don't buy this book.

    If you don't mind enjoying the scenery and just going with the flow, understanding that things will be explained later, then this is a good book.

    I couldn't put the second book down and I'm reading the third book right now.

    This might become something ...

    I listen to Fantasy and SciFi, nothing but for about three years now. I'd like to think I've developed an ear for a good story in the making. This sounds like a good story. I think the author lays quite a few plot threads and if she can keep them together this will be a great series. Narrator does an excellent job, which may mask some of what the book lacks in depth but I do recommend this book for Fantasy listeners.

    Good after it got going

    I was first put off by the reader's voice (like a heavy cigarette smoker's) but I got used to it, and actually liked it eventually. Same with the book. I couldn't get into it at first. It seemed like a kid's book, which surprised me, there were some obvious grammar mistakes, and it was too long for the amount of story. Where are the editors nowadays?

    Having said that, I am glad I stuck with it since I got totally hooked later on, esp. when the story dealt more with the magicians and their world. A fun adventure! I am downloading the next book right now.

    Ok nothing special

    It took me several hours to try and get into this book. I was about to ditch it and rate it a one. But after about a 1/3 of the way through finally I became interested. I don't remember much of the earlier chapters because it was hard to grab your attention and the narration was average early on.

    Basically here is how I rate this book...
    - The story is pretty basic and classic. Won't get into details as to spoil it here. But you've heard this story before.
    - The narration is hard to follow until you get used to the narrator. I found it way to easy to drift away from listening early on. He does a nice job with some of the voices later in the book but his standard narration voice is thick with accent and mono-toned.
    - The book would make a better movie than a book and I do think it would be a good movie. It's basically written like a screen play more than a novel. By that I mean it takes the entire book for me to get behind the characters and there is little extensive description of the scenes and more description like the author is telling actors what to do and where they are to go.
    - Having said that, after making it through the first 5 hours somewhat painfully and distracted... I did finally get into it and want to follow it to the end and see what happens even though I was pretty sure I knew.

    Over all it's average with some rather low parts but towards the end some nice characters that will maybe get you to buy the next book.

    Hope this helps.

    Slow Start to a Great Series

    Listen to this book to get to the others in the series. Books 2 and 3 are very interesting and suspenseful. You won't be sorry with your listening investment in book 1. This first book starts off a little slow, but 2/3 of the way in you'll be hooked on the whole series.

    So so slow. And dumb characters.

    The first half of the book should be 10 minutes not 10 hours. The second half is just as dull. The characters just do stupid thing after stupid thing. No reason for any adult to listen to this book. Half of the book is thoughts of what seems like 10 year olds struggling to make any decisions.

    Waste of Time

    What would have made The Magician's Guild better?

    The narration is all in one voice, a rather dull inner monologue that does not change from character to character. Very little action, a lot of whiny agonizing.

    Has The Magician's Guild turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just other books from this author.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Aspel?

    I do not think anyone could have made this listenable.

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

    Annoyance.

    Überbetont

    Ich liebe die Geschichte, hab sie auf Deutsch gelesen. Dieser Sprecher sagt mit jedoch gar nicht zu. Habe nur wenig Erfahrung mit englischen Hörbüchern, aber jedes zweite Wort ist so überbetont... Ich kann gar nicht richtig zuhören.

    Hören, hören, hören!

    Die Trilogie ist so spannend und faszinierend, der Sprecher zu fesselnd und die Charaktere so sympathisch, dass man gar nicht aufhören kann, wenn man einmal angefangen hat. Ich konnte nicht einmal bis zum nächsten Flexiguthaben warten und habe mir zwischendrin den zweiten Teil zusätzlich geholt. Und - kaum hatte ich den dritten Teil durch, habe ich bei Teil 1 wieder angefangen! Ich denke, das spricht Bände.

    Einziges Manko ist das Ende von The High Lord. Da hatte ich ein bisschen das Gefühl, dass die Autorin durch das Finale durchgehuscht ist, weil sie es selbst nicht ertragen konnte... Ein Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiesenspannungsbogen durch drei Bände hinweg - und dann ein Ende, bei dem man sich fragt - warum haben sie es nicht anders gemacht? Die Lösung war doch zur Hand? Hä? Es ist aber nur so ein kleiner Wehrmutstropfen, dass ich trotzdem die volle Punktzahl vergebe!!!

    Die guten Bewertungen sind ein Witz.

    ich wollte eigentlich 0 Sterne geben. Wer in diesem Buch nach einem spannenden Magiesystem und der Zaubererschule sucht muss leider bis Buch 2 warten. Oder besser die Reihe ganz überspringen. Interessante Idee am Anfang leider völlig zerstört von der unglaublich schwachen literarischen Leistung. Das Hauptproblem dieses Buches ist, dass ausnahmslos jeder charakter mit allem was er versucht zu erreichen scheitert. die handlung wird ausnahmslos durch unvermeidbare entwicklungen vorran getrieben oder weil zufällig genau zur richtigen zeit der eine oder andere charakter am richtigen ort ist. Nochmal - kein charakter nimmt erfolgreich bewussten einfluss auf die ereignisse der handlung!! Die letzten 2 Stunden der Geschichte klingt wie ungelesen abgedruckt. Charaktere widersprechen den eigenen aussagen innerhalb von wenigen Sätzen, völlig unangebrachte Reaktionen der Charaktere auf ihre Umstände und keinerlei payoff für die erste Hälfte "unkontrollierbare magische kräfte". Ich habe noch nie bereut ein Buch gehört oder gelesen zu haben. Für alles gibts ein erstes mal. SKIP!

    Spannend

    Ich kann dieses Buch und die darauf folgenden Bücher empfehlen. Es fehlt nicht an Spannung und die Entwicklungen durch die Bänder bleiben interessant.
    Leider bemerkte ich erst nach dem Kauf, und der ersten Minuten, dass ich die Bücher vor einigen Jahren gelesen hatte. Die Bücher waren gut aber ich hatte sie noch viel zu klar in Erinnerung. Deshalb hörte ich sie mir nicht wieder an.

    Interessant und spannend!

    Wirklich interessant und spannend, sehr gut gesprochen, allerdings ist die Geschichte im Ablauf relativ klassisch geschrieben (gut und böse, mehr oder weniger happy end).
