Gets a little repetitive but overall very good. After so many instalments we understand the Talbot character and don't feel we need to be reminded every five minutes of his personality traits

Abandoned as a baby, Andy McNab's start in life was tough. Growing up in South London with foster parents, and surrounded by poverty, he attended seven schools in as many years, disillusioned and in remedial classes. It wasn’t long before his life descended into petty crime. By the age of 16, he was in juvenile detention. Recruited into the Army from there, it soon became apparent that he had the reading level of an 11-year-old. The next six months in the Army education system changed the course of his life forever. Today Everything Changes is the inspiring story of when life changed for Andy McNab.

Very good but I didn't read the run time, it's more a synopsis than a biography. Interesting all the same.

Part Two of The Name of The Wind (Unabridged).'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me'.

Best Narration ever!

This title taught me that the narration will make or break an audio book. All characters are brilliantly brought to life with consistent regional accents. Add to that a fantastic story. The comparisons to Tolkien are valid. The world created is vast but not forced. I hope this series goes on for a long time!
