Summary

A mission to Hell....

Just yesterday, Sergeant Gil MacDonald and his APC crew had been fending off an ambush in a Viet Nam jungle. In the middle of the firefight, some kind of magic spell had transported them to this Fantasy Land complete with flying dragons, wizards, crazy castles, and dispossessed princes. They would stay trapped here forever unless they could rescue the sorceress Gabrielle. Master magician Amon held her captive in his palace; and to reach her, Gil and his men would have to infiltrate Hell itself!

Waited over twenty years for an audiobook version!

What did you like best about The Doomfarers of Coramonde? What did you like least?

Love the book! The issues I had with the reader may be a download issue.

What other book might you compare The Doomfarers of Coramonde to and why?

I haven't read anything like Doomfarers.

What didn’t you like about Cameron Beierle’s performance?

Very robotic nararation (might have been the download) Although, I did not like the character voice he gave Gil. I think he gave Gil a John Wayne style voice and my interpertation of Gil is much younger. I was not thrilled with Andre's voice either.

Was The Doomfarers of Coramonde worth the listening time?

Absolutely!!! Although I had some issue with two character voices, I understand it is subjective. Overall, I would recomend the book and I will listen to it again and again

Any additional comments?

I am going to listen to the book again through my Ipod instead of my Kindle to determine if the robotic tone may have been a download issue.

Great story

This and the sequel, the Starfollowers of Coramonde are two of my all time favorite books. Alas, the narrator, who has a wonderful speaking voice, has managed to create the most jarring character voices I've heard in the many years that I've listened to audio books. His falsetto for the women's voices is very annoying.

Old favorite of mine.

This is one of very few books I have bothered to read more than once. It is full of very memorable characters you can relate too or envy for their skills.
Alas, as much as I love this take, it was almost painful to listen to it. The reader is very clear in his pronunciation, but it's a lot like listening to Sgt. Joe Friday reading it. Almost no emotion or life is breathed into the characters.

Dissapointing

I love Brian Daley's work on the Star Wars radio drama and first Han Solo book trilogy. But For this story I didn't like his characters, their relationships, or anything about the world being created to really care about his good vs. evil epic war. The romances were particularly bad. I don't know if the story improves with the next book, There was one character introduced near the end that has a lot of potential who's fate is left as a cliff hanger, but I'm not interested enough to use one of my credits to find out.

A good listen

I enjoy this series It was a great discovery in my youth when I was just beginning my appreciation of epic fantasy. Doomfarers is chock full of well formed and interesting characters, situations and adventure.

I enjoyed Beierle’s voice and his pacing but just like his reading of “The Belgariad” series, there are smatterings of mispronunciations of words (i.e Shore-Timer instead of the military pronunciation SHORT-Timer) which draws me out of the listen sometimes.

Still and all a great story and a solid performance overall.

Highly recommended.

Well written but

Too graphic for me.
Love the (spoiler alert) juxtaposition of Viet Nam war and medieval-ish fantasy themes
The tank versus the dragon!!!
But the graphic sex was too much for me.
Bummer.

Interesting ideas poor implementation

What would have made The Doomfarers of Coramonde better?

Characters that were better written and therefore believable.

What was most disappointing about Brian Daley’s story?

The supporting characters were not developed enough and the plot was choppy.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration was decent he just didn't have much to work with.

Any additional comments?

The story started out well enough and the characters developed at first and then the characters became unbelievable and the plot became choppy. Might have been alright as a graphic novel or perhaps TV show.

I wish I didn't

Well, it was a book, and there were words in it. It was not completely awful, but it was not anything to write a review about. I will not recommend this book to any reader that has a couple of brain cells.
