Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

One of my all time favourite books, I agree narrator could have been better, but still did a great jou

Great story, shame about the choice of narrator

I've always loved this book. And I was very excited to hear it as an audiobook. But the choice of narrator made it almost unbearable to listen to.

From his boring and monotonous cadence. To his unsuitably high voice. He really ruined this audiobook for me. Such a shame.

Wrong voice for story

While I’ve listened to Peter Kenny read other book, his voice does not match a butch and male oriented story.

Good book but not based much of fiction.

Great characters, but I always like a basis of fact to my books. Some of the characters changes persona mid book and it was a little far fetched for my liking.

Great Introduction to Gemmell

Excellent gateway into the writings of David Gemmell and his regular elements of shades-of-grey warriors, redemption, the Source and Chaos, spirit travel and the Void.
