The Wise Man's Fear turns a powerful fantasy saga to audio, powered by Nick Podehl's smooth voice--which has received audio awards in past. The epic tells of a rivalry with a member of nobility forces, telling of Kvothe who wanders the countryside searching for answers to an assassination attempt and court politics. Romance and intrigue spice an epic fantasy saga hard to stop listening to. THE WISE MAN'S FEAR is a weighty novel and at first glance would seem to not translate well to unabridged audio: it's Nick Podehl's voice that carries the creation, translates well the tensions, and makes for a gripping story line that comes across in unabridged audio as powerfully as in print.
