Inhaltsangabe

The first volume in Robin Hobb’s internationally best-selling Farseer series.

In a faraway land where members of the royal family are named for the virtues they embody, one young boy will become a walking enigma. Born on the wrong side of the sheets, Fitz, son of Chilvary Farseer, is a royal bastard, cast out into the world, friendless and lonely.

Only his magical link with animals - the old art known as the Wit - gives him solace and companionship. But the Wit, if used too often, is a perilous magic, and one abhorred by the nobility. So when Fitz is finally adopted into the royal household, he must give up his old ways and embrace a new life of weaponry, scribbing, courtly manners, and how to kill a man secretly, as he trains to become a royal assassin.

Kritikerstimmen

“Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers … what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics.” ( The Times)
“In today’s crowded fantasy market Robin Hobb’s books are like diamonds in a sea of zircons” (George R. R. Martin)

Grauenhaft schlechter Sprecher

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

Der Sprecher klingt wie ein Computer. Betonung und Sprachfluss sind nicht vorhanden, es klingt einfach unnatürlich. Man merkt wie der Tontechniker verzweifelt versucht hat, es besser hörbar zu machen, während der Sprecher sprachlich Holz hackt, aber diese Lautstärkeschwankungen sind unerträglich und machen das nur noch schlimmer.

Das Buch kann ich nur empfehlen, aber dieses Hörbuch sollten Sie sich nicht antun.

Good book, lousy reader

Haben Sie die Zeit genossen, in der Sie dieses Hörbuch gehört haben? Warum oder warum nicht?

The story is okay, but Paul Boehmers reading is not. He tries so hard to mimic an English accent that it is hard to ignore him and focus on the story. His "white" starts with a H which seems to last for 10 seconds. I would have had no problem with an American accent.

Welches andere Buch würden Sie mit Assassin's Apprentice vergleichen? Warum?

Lies of Locke Lamora

Wen hätten Sie anstatt Paul Boehmer als Erzähler vorgeschlagen?

Steven Pacey, Michael Kramer or Rupert Degas. Until now all readers were fine.

Hat Assassin's Apprentice Sie zu etwas Bestimmtem inspiriert?

No

Much better than I had expected by far.

There are many stores that follow young boys that must grow up facing hardship. But this one sucked me in and took me on a journey that made me find myself wanting to here the next part. The only problem was that the speed of my house chores took a dive as I paused so often to listen.

What a wonderful story

This is my first Robin Hobb book and I must say that I enjoyed it and can't wait to start on the second book of the series.
This sort of plot reminds and the style of writing reminds me of Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series.

I highly recommend this book. Enjoy!

It could have been good

I listened to this trilogy and liked it at first. The world Fitz did grew up in, his secret ability, his training as an assassin. It really could have become a great story. But in the end it didn't. Sure it does have an end, but Fitz retires in his twenties and calls himself old. Hobb lets him act like an idiot most of the time. The only reasonable charakters in this story are some of the women. I love good Fantasy and good stories an have read hundreds of them, the longer-the better, but this one is disapointing. So don't even start waisting your time with this one. Read "the sword of truth" from Terry Goodkind or "the name of the wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. I'm giving 2 Stars for the promising Idea of this story
