The Way of Kings (Audio Reminder)

October 27, 2010

Like so many other Brandon Sanderson fans, I pre-ordered The Way of Kings: Book One of the Stormlight Archive in tome form, and was extremely impressed with the production values that went into the hardcover (though how my shelves will hold the weight of this hefty multi-volume series is beyond me) but with Michael Kramer and Kate Reading (of Wheel of Time fame) providing voice work  for Macmillan’s audio version of the series I couldn’t help but purchase it in audio as well to experience what they bring to the table.

Eleven chapters into the audio book and I think these two fine voice actors have manged to get even better since my last outing with them in the Wheel of Time series, they’ve really managed to bring the characters to life with their incredible ranges, and it’s been a joy all this week to get in the car and listen for an hour or two each day on my drive to and from work (it’s also been a great way to get my mind off of this week’s mid-terms, if for a little while).

If you’re interested in experiencing the book this way, remember that Audible.com has the book for only 1 credit (a book of this length usually costing 2) until October 31st. Happy Halloween!

  1. I’ve seen quite a few mentions of audio books recently – it’s an aspect I’ve not given much thought to, but now I’m quite interested to hear what voice actors have made of some of my favourites…

    Sanderson’s work sounds worth checking out too!


    • Sanderson’s work is definitely worth checking out Mark, and as I mentioned, the audio work on ‘The Way of Kings’ is stellar. The audio for both ‘Elantris’ and ‘Warbreaker’ is very good as well.

      (Haven’t had the chance to hear ‘Mistborn’ yet, but Michael Kramer narrates that series as well so I would expect a great performance.)

      Thanks for checking in.
