This novel, the fifth in the magnificent series of England's history tells of the final assaults on Alfred's Wessex, that Wessex survived to become England is because men like Uhtred defeated an enemy feared throughout Christendom. Good story but the narrator left a lot to be desired. Should have kept jonathan keeble!!! The narrator does a good job but is so bland in comparison to the narrator in the first lot of books.
He was truly amazing and brought such life to the book. The first For books were great you could have believed there was written and read by a sword wielding blood spitting Warrior but now they feel like they are getting read by a very annoyed accountant.
And to find out that this narrator is going to read every book in the series from now on has caused me to call it quits on book number 5. I found it difficult to get used to the change in narrator. I am confused as to why you would change halfway through a series, but imagine there was a good reason. It's such a shame that they changed the brilliant Jonathan Keeble, who read the first four books. Matt Bates reads in rather flat monotone, struggles with accents and pronounces the names differently.
Keeble on the other hand, bought humor, warmth and ferociousness to his voices. He didn't just read the books, but acted them out with energy and gusto.
The stories were much more vivid when he was the narrator.
Burning Land: A Novel
I think i'll stop with this book, which is a shame, as I was really enjoying the Last Kingdom series. I'm sure Matt Bates would be fine for non-fiction narration, but he was poorly cast in this case. They replaced the voice actor, the new one is monotone and not as good at accents. He makes the characters dull. The chap who takes over from Johnathan Keeble is a truly awful narrator!! My love of this series died about three hours into this book because of one man.
Matt Bates. Matt bates has completely ruined an amazing series. Monotone can't pronounce characters names properly battles scenes are awful. Will not be listening to the rest of the books not worth wasting my credits on.
An obviously no one at audible is bothering to take notice of what people think. Give it a chance. Awful narration. There must have been some reason to change the narrator during the series but could he and the producers not familiarise themselves with the previous versions so that they pronounced the character names the same!
Completely changed the story due to lack of consistency. I am seriously enjoying this series which has me constantly gripped, but I was shocked to hear a completely different voice on book 4 as well as different accents and pronunciation of names, it really spoilt it for me, Jamie Glover was just brilliant and had You so engrossed, in the battles and the storyline, I really missed him on book 4.
John Lee is okay, he's just not Jamie.
I won't stop until I've read all twelve books though, I love the story.
