    Inhaltsangabe

    Zorian Kazinski has all the time in the world to get stronger, and he plans on taking full advantage of it.

    A teenage mage of humble birth and slightly above-average skill, Zorian is attending his third year of education at Cyoria's magical academy. A driven and quiet young man, he is consumed by a desire to ensure his own future and free himself of the influence of his family, resenting the Kazinskis for favoring his brothers over him. Consequently, Zorian has no time for pointless distractions, much less other people's problems.

    As it happens, though, time is something he is about to get plenty of.

    On the eve of Cyoria's annual summer festival, Zorian is murdered, then abruptly brought back to the beginning of the month, just before he was about to take the train to school. Finding himself trapped in a time loop with no clear end or exit, he will have to look both within and without to unravel the mystery set before him. He does have to unravel it, too, because the loop clearly wasn’t made for his sake, and in a world of magic even a time traveler isn't safe from those who wish him ill.

    Fortunately for Zorian, repetition is the mother of learning….

    A masterpiece

    This story is truly fantastic. Arc 1 covers chapters 1-26 of 108 total and I've read/listened to all of them. There's a lot to like about this story and I can confirm that it continues just as great from start to finish. If you like Harry Potter, Name of the Wind and/or Final Fantasy, I recommend to just go for it and judge after chapter 4.
    The story is a fantasy story (not LitRPG) and narrated form the single perspective of the main character in 3rd person POV. Hence, it's free of annoying cliff hangers and we get to learn about the world at same time as the main character. Speaking of the world, it's a fantasy world were magic is real and more modern technologies like trains and guns have been invented only recently. The magic system is well developed and interesting. The main character (15) is a student attending his third year at a rather prestigious mage academy located in a rather rich city. He now enjoys the independence away from his family which is middle class, but rich enough to afford the academy. As for the plot, I don't want to spoil any plot details, suffice to say the main character is pulled into a conspiracy of sorts by the end of chapter 4. What really makes Mother of Learning stand out is that all its characters are developed extremely well and we get to know each one more and more as the story progresses. Although relationships evolve and play a huge role, it's largely free of romance (similar to Harry Potter). What's notable is that each character, be it the main character's little sister (9), his class mates, his famous elder brother and his mentors, have hidden depths to them that are only revealed over time. Also, the main character undergoes a lot of character growth unrelated to him becoming more powerful. This aspect makes Mother of Learning stand apart from other progression fantasy titles. In summary I can only highly recommend this story.
    The narrator, Jack Voraces, does a great job with the voices. I especially enjoy his voice for Zach (a class mate) which is just spot-on with that character's personality.

    The narrator

    I guess the story may be good, but I found the narrator really difficult to listen to especially the women high pitched voices were really annoying. It really broke my normally relaxed state while hearing. The narrator is really motivated and this is basically good but it's a bit over the top here. I may try and read this one instead.

    P.s. can't tell you anything about the story, only listened for an hour.

    Great story, over-eager narrator

    the story is great, and I have read it multiple times at this point, so I was very delighted, when I found out there would be an audio book. however, I dislike the narration quite severely, because the narrator overemphasizes everything!!! he speaks the way I read to my two year old with biiig voices and stuff, and almost every character has an accent of some kind. sometimes that can be fun, but it grows tiresome quickly when everyone has one. but the worst offense in my opinion is that he quite often starts a sentence with an aborted "em" like he wants to say it and juuuust stops himself. it completely takes me out of the story.

    Impossible to listen to

    This has got to be a joke from audible. The voice acting for the female characters is terrible beyond comprehension.

    Great story, narrator overdoing it a bit

    I liked the story very much. However, I nearly stopped the book early because of the narrator. I became somewhat used to it over time

    Beautiful Story

    I followed this story in the web ever since it was released on royal road and fiction press.
    It's one of my all-time-favourites for world building, interestingly fleshed out characters, a fantastic plot that builds upon itself and all the details that are constantly added with every chapter without ever feeling klunky or out of place, filling an original world with live without the reader ever noticing any inconsistencies. The progression feels natural.
    Can't wait to hear the next Arc spoken by you.
    For any potential listeners: Don't wait. Just listen in and be charmed by an introverted boy, slowly opening up to the world around him as he finds his way around school live, teenager Problems, magical phenomena, a looming catastrophy constantly holding him on edge and, as promised by the title, his ever growing willingness to learn new and fascinating magic as well as social and other skills to grow up to the challenges his more then special circumstances have in store for him.
    Thank you, Mr. Kurmaic, for sharing this story with us.

    Cool story

    This is one of the best progression fantasy novels I know of. Really cool world building, a magic system that makes sense, smart antagonists, characters that behave consistently and protagonists that grow stronger in a realitistic way

    Not bad but problematic

    It was a good book until the very end when the author broke his own established rules and created a truly absurd plot hole. No idea how he wants to get out of that or if he will just ignore it in his next book.
