Hilfreichste

Mediocre, a bit weird, not deep enough

Gibt es irgendetwas, das Sie an diesem Hörbuch ändern würden?

I would use a narrator who spoke with more than a whisper.


Was war der interessanteste Aspekt der Handlung? Welcher der uninteressanteste?

Most interesting:
The author hints at a long since past catastrophe and describes a world basically set in the middle ages, but spiked with high-tech that is partially not understood.
Unfortunately this is not treated enough in the story.

Least interesting:
The whole issue of the Torturer's Guild. It is just a strange setting, without reason. It does not, however, enrich the story.


Passten der Vortrag und die Geschwindigkeit der Handlung zusammen?

No. The narratow speaks slowly and often very quietly. The impression is that of a half asleep main character to wanders through life dream like.


War es für Sie die Zeit wert, sich The Shadow of the Torturer anzuhören?

Not really. I often wish I had something that grabs me more.


Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

I think that's enough.
