Publisher's Summary

Andre Norton enthralled readers for decades with thrilling tales of people challenged to the limits of their endurance in epic battles of good against evil. None are more memorable than her Witch World novels.

Simon Tregarth, a man from our own world, escapes his doom through the gates to the Witch World. There he aids the witch Jaelithe's escape from the hounds of Alizon, only to find himself embroiled in a deeper war against an even deadlier foe: the Kolder.

    "witch world read and read"
    What made the experience of listening to Witch World the most enjoyable?

    I had, many years ago, been an avid reader of Andre Norton and this was the first I read. It was fascinating to listen to another's way of reading the book. It was as exciting as I remember and it is a good once only read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was an old favourite but it was nice to be read too.


    Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favourite?

    Tho' the accent was not as my mind had immagined, it was the way Nick narrated the whole book that made the story relive in my mind.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    My intention was to listen in small sessions, whilst driving but the style of reading ensured that I listened to the complete book much faster than I intended!!


    Any additional comments?

    It has confirmed my wish to buy the other books in the series and the other books by the author.

    "Wonderful"

    I had read the Witch World books many years ago and enjoyed them at that time. The enjoyment of the series has been rekindled with this audio version. It was enjoyable to be reintroduced to Simon Tregarath and the Witches of Estcarp. I hope that a number of the other books are brought out. The narrator does a wonderful job with reading the book.

    "Lo-o-o-ove Andre Norton"

    I was introduced to Andre Norton a few months ago, and this has reopened my love for old-fashioned sci-fi... The twists, the imagination - wow... Love the different style that Andre Norton adopts.

    I love driving, but now I love the audio books that go with the trip :) This is simply a "must-have" for your audio library...

    "An Old Favorite"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am so thrilled to find that Audiobooks has the first three books in the Witch World series!!!! I owned the collection years ago, and just dearly loved the stories. However, time passes, and I no longer have the collection (my bad). Thank you, Thank you, Audible, for carrying these awesome stories!!! I am soooo looking forward to hearing my old friends spring back to life!


    What other book might you compare Witch World to and why?

    There is no comparison. Andre Norton ROCKS!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I just could not tell you. From the aeries to the runes to the ancient places of power, the adventures the characters go on enthrall me and hold me spell-bound.


    Any additional comments?

    Sure wish these books would be made into movies. They would be AWESOME!!! Harry Potter has NOTHING on Witch World!!!

    "A Sci-fi classic"

    I remember reading Andre Norton's Witch World series as a boy, somewhere between the age of 11 and 13. Audible has done a fine job of capturing the excitement and wonder I felt as a child, in their presentation here. Nick Podehl deliveries a great performance, as he weaves this classic sci-fi story for us modern readers. This book was published in 1963, and, as such, has to stand up against 54 years of increasingly complex and modern tales. It does so admirably, and the audio performance only highlights what an extraordinary book it is!

    "Witchworld, the beginning"

    This is the first book of a long series. The audible version is very well done. It captures the other world terminology and flavor of the story. I only wish ALL the books would be made into audio versions.

    "Great listen"
    If you could sum up Witch World in three words, what would they be?

    excellent Norton classic


    What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nick is one of those narrators that can bring the story to life


    Any additional comments?

    a fantastic way to not only introduse the listener to Andre Norton ,but also to the series of Witch World.

    "Great story and amazing characters"

    Realizing I had never read on of Andre's books, I started with this one and love the world that is built in this book. The characters are not black and white, but a mix of grey that makes the times they do the right thing even more impressive.
