loved it :D

Would you consider the audio edition of Guenhwyvar to be better than the print version?

Yes, I loved Mr Felton reading it

What did you like best about this story?

I like the whole troll and dwarve stories so it was an easy listen/read for me

What does Tom Felton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

he has an english accent so it is easy to understand

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

made me laugh

Any additional comments?

disappointed

I've read a lot of R.A. Salvatore books always enjoyed them. I want the full book, though.

Do not bother

A good backstory, however, the narrator is so lackluster, lispy, disengaged, & emotionless that I found it an intense struggle to make it through this 45 minute short story. A great story utterly ruined by nearly unintelligible mush-mouthed oration.

Nice back Story

It was a nice break to get a little back story to one of our Hero's companion. Not a lot there, but at least a little something.

I loved everything, the story and voice acting

I have read R.A Salvatore books for almost 30 years now. Started with Homeland and read everything afterwards. So happy that he wrote this story. I was gripped and couldn't stop. Voice acting was top notch and kept you interested.

Well worth the cost.

The back story for Guenhwyvar

A great back story for Guenhyvar, the courageous and strong Panther. A great narrator.

I expected more

I was looking forward to hearing about the cat's beginnings but there was not enough background or maybe the story was too short.

The Magic of Magic

Guenhwyvar is one of my favourite tales... Not because of just the mystery, the sensuous elves, the beautiful panther, magical sciences, the caring and loyalty... But because of these and do much more.

A fitting origin

Anyone who has read the stories of the companions will know and love Guenhwyvar as much as any of the characters, this is a fitting story to give her an origin. it leaves me wanting to know more of the time between this and her introduction to Drizzt.
