SOUL OF THE FIRE Sword of Truth, Book Five

by | Read by Buck Schirner

Fantasy • 24 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

In this Sword of Truth novel, Kahlan and Richard are yet again embroiled in an impossible save-the-world scheme. Goodkind never tires of thwarting his hero and heroine’s chance at a happy, quiet life, and, through them, offers a fabulous and ever-developing epic world. Buck Schirner takes the massive cast list in stride, switching from character to character, nobleman to native, and male to female with subtle and effective grace. Schirner avoids “speaking in genders” and makes a special effort to learn the speech patterns and tones of each character. The result is characters who actually sound like themselves, rather than potentially jarring shifts between stereotypical male and female voices. Schirner does lose a little steam about halfway through, but overall his performance is strong and pleasing. A.H.A. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
