"Ok.. Now I love this Narrator"
Well, I reviewed book 2 and was at that point a bit peeved that the Narrator had changed from Book one. I thought it was the narrator I didnt like, but I was wrong - it was infact my pet hate that narrator changed in a book series and nothing else. I find that I now love this narrator and cant imagine the characters having been any other way. A bit of google searching reveals that unfortunately Frank Muller was unable to complete this series after being in an accident and that is the reason for the alternating narrators. Both are excellent, I am sure it will jar again when Frank Muller is no longer reading but I am sure it will become as enjoyable again very shortly afterwards. I am very glad that book one has the "new" narrator as I will have heard his voice already when the change comes again. The Story is utterly superb as is the narration, I had no idea that I was listening to and giving a bad review of a narrator who was considered amongst the best, after many hours listening to this Narrator I can now see why he was chosen to read these books and it is a real shame that he has since passed away and will never complete the set.
Not as good as the second book in the series but better than the first. Left on a real cliff-hanger, which must have been maddening for anyone reading them as they were published, but fine as I was able to move right onto book four.
"Enter the Ka-tet"
Jake arrives after his ill-fated appearance in Book One. The Ka-tet is now complete along with a cute wee badger/raccoon/dog mix called Oy. They travel through the Waste Lands looking for a monorail to speed them towards the tower.
