Publisher's Summary

Three complete full length novels in one well-priced package!
Twisted by black magic and driven by soul-crushing loss, Lowin Fenly, a young scribe turned knight, struggles to hold on to his humanity as he battles to rescue that which he values most in the world. Along the way he will be forced to make friends of his enemies and enemies of his friends. He will grow from a boy no one has heard of into a man destined to leave the land forever changed, but how will he be remembered? Will he be Sir Fenly, hero of the people, or will he be Lowin the Dread, a monster to terrify children?
The Hungering Saga is a sweeping story that begins in familiar fantasy territory and quickly twists many of the genre staples back upon themselves.

A terrible performance highlighting awful writing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better writing, better performance and a more vigorous editor.
I really tried with this audio book. This came after a string of seriously amazing reads/listens and I thought I was being overly critical at first, but it just got worse. I've given up half way through because listening to it was making me angry and frustrated. I have no idea how this got a 4 star rating on audible...

What didn’t you like about Paul J McSorley’s performance?

If you want to listen to a 37 hour asthma attack, look no further! This performance made me really appreciate breathing.

Sublime

I have read many reviews for these books and the overarching theme was fantastic story but poor execution in the sense of editing and diction. I must say this is a heap of pretentious rubbish! As I listened to this book my mind ceased to hear the words, instead, I saw them. I often become lost in the majesty of Pfaff's world and became infatuated with the journey of the characters. There is a maturity in the content of this book that draws you in, providing a raw and visceral sense to the text which is an excellent exploration of the human condition. I would often be caught up in moral musings as I listened, not always agreeing with the moral position taken by the author. Having moments such as this with a text are rare, and are a testament to the author's ability to not only caress your mind with the fantastical but also to invigorate its core.

Paul J McSorley narration was a bit confronting at first as I struggled to related to his selected voice for a key character. However, this character does change very early in the first book, so was not a burden for long. My final view of McSorely's narration is a positive one as it neither improves or reduces the text itself; achieving little in the narration is a positive as many narrators are utterly hopeless.

I wholehearted recommend this book to those who think they will just read one chapter more before bed... then realizing it is 3am. A sublime book of many ideas and emotions wrapped is an excellent fantasy world.

Poorly performed, poorly written.

What would have made The Hungering Saga Complete better?

This is the first review I've written on an audio book from Audibles, and I'll tell you why. After reading the only previous review I decided to give this book a go and see if it was as decent as some written by other authors I was unfamiliar with but now adore. I don't recommend you take the plunge. Save your credit or money for something by Brandon Sanderson or Patrick Rothfuss.

This writer cannot begin to attach a reader to a character and I'm not exaggerating. If you're used to a world filled with love for your main protagonist, with detailed imagery and an insatiable need for the next title, this isn't it. It's difficult to discern what the point of the books are at all, in fact, because so little cohesion exists as you blur from one character experience to the next in a large cast of characters without distinction and poorly executed plot exploration. As if this wasn't enough, you add in the tailored sexual encounters and child-like vocabulary of the writer and you're left puzzling over how this was published and became an audio book at all.

I'm not going to relent on the performance, I'm sorry. I've not been so displeased by a performance in all of my audio book history, which spans several years. The actor here does not enunciate. He has an accent that's difficult to listen to constantly, and he mispronounces several words. Without a written copy to compare to, I also believe he adds words or phrases into the performance that (trying to give some credit here in hopes it's not true) make the author sound ridiculously unfamiliar with the style of writing he's trying to convey.

Please, PLEASE proceed with caution. There are a great number of books I would give outstanding praise to (and probably should after writing this), but this isn't one of them.

Sad tale

The story it self is very interesting, but it is just too sad all the time.

Nothing goes the way you want it to, but it is still a captivating story.

Terrible writing, repeats the same past events.

Repetition used as a device to lengthen a short book. Awful writing and average performance

The narrator isn't great, but the story is worse

The narrator isn't great he does add much to the story and puts the emphasis in really strange places often not reading ahead so not finishing the sentence properly. But it may not be all his fault as quite frankly the story is awful, childish, poorly written, with no time taken to build character or even create believable character depth.
