If you're into Warcraft, you'll love this story!

What made the experience of listening to World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War the most enjoyable?

Compelling storyline, well written. Provides a lot more character depth to many of the major Warcraft characters.

What other book might you compare World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War to and why?

The storyline is as good as her previous Warcraft books (she's written 5 other Warcraft titles- unfortunately this is the only one available from Audible!) I think she's the best of the writers for Warcraft books!

Did Justine Eyre do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The narration was adequate, but could have been better.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If you want war between the Horde and Alliance, you've got it!

Any additional comments?

Please add more Christie Golden books to Audible, especially her Warcraft books!

Enjoyable

Would you consider the audio edition of World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War to be better than the print version?

Yes. I thought the reader was wonderful. She can't get the low's needed for male orcs - but few can :)

What was one of the most memorable moments of World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War?

The mana bomb

Which scene was your favorite?

Jaina and Thrall fighting

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Jaina - a woman scorn?

Any additional comments?

I thought the reader did a wonderful job. I thought the story was great too. It isn't a historical piece of work, but those of you who are fans of world of warcraft, Alliance or Horde, this was a great story - especially before Mists of Pandaria.

Great Story, Can't stand the narrator's voice.

Would you try another book from Christie Golden and/or Justine Eyre?

I have read or listened to several Christie Golden books. She is a fantastic author and I strongly suggest her works to anyone interested in the Warcraft universe.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's attempt to give justice to some of the characters such as Garrosh Hellscream is so feeble, that it is border line hilarious. I have been tempted to skip over the parts where Garrosh is involved but keep listening in fear of missing a plot detail.

Any additional comments?

Read the book. Skip this particular audio book. The girl, although has a nice voice, she does not do any of the Orc or Tauren characters justice.

The voice acting was painful.

Where does World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was an enjoyable tie-in novel that is somewhat important for WoW players to read if they truly want to understand the lore, because the game skips over much of this story and jumps to the aftermath. And although the story is enjoyable, the poor narration makes it much better ebook than audio book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's normal reading voice was pleasant, but when she got in character to do male voices, it was an unbearable attempt at a deep gravely voice. Orc and Tauren especially sounded like a child's mocking impersonation of an elderly male. I often couldn't tell who was speaking because everyone sounded the same. I don't expect a narrator to have a voice that can truly match every character, but this was hard to listen to. Her normal reading voice would have been much better.

Good story, poor choice for narrator

The story itself is good. I have no real complaints with it. The narrator, however, was a poor choice for this particular novel.

I would listen to another book narrated by Justine Eyre, just not a book that had any Orcs, Tauren or Trolls as characters. Justine does a decent job portraying male humans or elves, but male Orcs? Tauren??

Good grief, no.

It's not that she doesn't TRY to voice them correctly; with gruffness and brutishness. She does try. The problem is that Justine has a very feminine voice. She's pleasant to listen to, but the moment she tries to voice an angry Orc, like Garrosh, (or any other male Horde race), it just doesn't work. Worse, it just sounds comical.

There were several points during the narration where I thought, "I don't think I can keep listening to this! She sounds ridiculous!!" -- but I pushed on. Because, as I said, the story is good.

For anyone who is considering picking this up, be forewarned -- Justine Eyre was probably not the best choice to narrate this particular book, but she does try very hard to do the male Horde characters justice. The problem is she simply doesn't have the deep, vocal range to do it. Not her fault. And, as I said before, I would absolutely listen to another book narrated by her... just not one with Orc, Tauren or Trolls... ;)

Better than I could ever imagine.

Would you consider the audio edition of World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War to be better than the print version?

Yes, I love to listen while working, it's like doing two things at once.

What did you like best about this story?

Oh my, this is a tough question, I really liked the whole story but but better understanding Jaina was well worth it.

Unfortunately, not for me.

Golden wrote a lot of my favorite warcraft books, from "Beyond the Dark Portal" to "Arthas Rise of the Lich King". But this one misses the mark, the characters are very awkward and behave awkwardly. The gnome is especially annoying, The proformance is a little too chipper too.

voice acting was good most of the time,

but sometimes Garrosh sounded Irish for some reason. and Vol'jin was a mix between Jamacan and Indian

Bewegende Geschichte für Kenner mit etwas Groschenroman Romantik

Als Vorbereitung zu Battle for Azeroth sehr gut geeignet, wenn man mehr über die Tochter der See und ihre Vergangenheit in Theramore erfahren möchte!

Die Sprecherin hat die vielen, vorwiegend männlichen, Charaktere gut differenziert rübergebracht. Besonderes Highlight sind für mich die Trolle, der Akzent ist klasse. Leider stößt die Sprecherin bei den großen Orks an ihre physische. Grenzen und es klingt so bei dem einen oder anderen Charakter etwas aufgesetzt. Emotionen der weiblichen Figuren kommen sehr authentisch rüber, wie eben von der wichtigen Protagonistin Lady Jaina Proudmoore.

Das Buch greift viele Fäden der komplexen Geschichte des Warcraft Universums auf, so sind für Fans die meisten Charaktere bekannt. Es ist immer wieder ein positives Erlebnis, sich an einen Charakter oder eine Situation zu erinnern, die man vor Jahren z.B. in dem Sunwell Manga gelesen hat.
Das spielbare Szenario zu Theramore in MoP erzählt die Geschichte nicht Mal ansatzweise so gut wie das Buch.

Einziges kleines Manko für mich bleibt die etwas ausladenden Romantik-Einlagen die die Autorin mit einer guten Portion Schmalz ausführt. Hachja, die Liebe.

Eine schöne Geschichte!

Kann ich nur jedem empfehlen. Charaktere sind realistisch, story packend. Es gibt nur 1-2 Ungereimtheiten in der story, die ich hier natürlich nicht spoilern kann. Trotzdem bekommt die Geschichte für die wunderbare Ausschmückung, für die Kombination vieler Themen wie Moral, Ideale, Liebe, Zugehörigkeit uvm 5 Sterne. Herausragend fand ich die Ausgeglichenheit und die schlussendliche Zusammenführung verschiedener Stränge der Geschichte (va. untersch. Perspektiven werden deutlich). Die Sprecherin hat alles angenehm rüber gebracht wie ich finde. Sie konnte mir nicht nur das Gemüt eines Charakters mittels Stimmlage vermitteln, sondern vor allem auch Spannung aufbauen, wenn diese in der Geschichte gerade auftrat. Es kam also nie ein Gefühl wie "träge erzählt, obwohls eigentlich gerade spannend oder aufbrausend sein sollte" auf. Greift bedenkenlos zu, sofern ihr natürlich irgendwo für fantasy empfänglich seid!

Sparprogramm

Wieso immer dieser Geiz? Eine, an sich sehr angenehme Sprecherin, in einer komplexen Geschichte mit vielen Charaktären u.a. Orcs, Drachen, Untote, uvm.
Das kann niemand!
Deswegen tut es mir für die ansonsten tolle Sprecherin leid sagen zu müssen, dass dies fast die gesamte Geschichte in Mitleidenschaft gezogen hat.
Mehr in die Produktion zu stecken hätte das Buch zu einem echten Highlight machen können. So ist es nur eine fantastische Geschichte als durchschnittliches Hörbuch.
