Please fix the formatting

Elric is one of my favorite fantasy series of all time, so when I heard there would be a set of three omnibuses that put the series in order I was thrilled. I love the physical copy of this book but I wanted to check out audio book because I want this story to be as accessible as humanly possible. So it disappoints me that the audiobook doesn’t split show you which book you’re in with the chapters section. Nor are there any chapter titles. This could have easily been formatted the same way as a Stormlight Archive book. So I don’t know why it wasn’t. It isn’t a big deal for me as I’ve read the whole series before. But I do not envy the people whose first experience this wonderful saga via the audiobook.

Fixed

The issues regarding chapter divisions have been fixed. It has all the chapter names so one can easily peruse and find whatever one is looking for if you want to skip around. This audiobook (like the last one) had this same issue for about three days after release date but was quickly fixed. I imagine when the last book comes out it will also have a three day delay or so before we get the nice chapter divisions.

What more can one say about the mighty Elric? These stories have been out since the 70’s and are about a the last emperor of a vast empire who wields a sword sword that gives the user great power but destroys all the wielder lives. The tone is melancholy and ironic with a prose that many today would call “purple” but I really enjoy. This collection has some of the best stories with a fantastic narrator.

I'm not crying you're crying! Shut up!

Another great recording, story and narrator. You need to pay attention to what's going on, can get a little crazy sometimes.

high fantasy

As in, it would be better to read the Elric stories high. So much surrealism.
I loved these stories as a 14 year old boy. Now, as my hairline has matured, so have my tastes in fantasy novels.

One of the all time greats

Fabulous! These stories have inspired so many others. The grand nature of all of Elric's adventures are so much more than the average fantasy hero or series.

Excellent conclusion to a monumental masterpiece

The second half of the Eldric Saga original takes the story to its logical conclusion. Having read the books in high school revisiting them here was amazing and apart from the actor performing where he would call Elric Eric I found his work to be excellent

Like being a kid again

I would read the Elric series fanatically as a teenager. Listening to them 40 years later was practically a walk down memory lane.

The end is always the most difficult to accept.

“Spoiler”
The end of the saga the end of Elric, Moonglum’s death….all to start the world we know today.
Only if you know the series or know about the Last King and Emperor would you you understand. Much like 45 yrs ago when I read it the first time, it wasn’t easy coming to this last part of this hearing it.
But I digress, it’s only a book; right?
That’s for the next reader to decide. I sure hope the next Eternal Champion has better success and lives to tell the tell.
Oh wait a review…….
Wow! Much mad respect to the team that put this together and for Samuel Roukin, you rock!!

Worth the Wait

For years I've wanted the Elric Saga to progress to another media besides the printed page. Stormbringer, the second audio compilation has not failed to entertain. I await more of Moorcock's Multiverse.

Had such a good time with both volumes.

Very enjoyable saga. Finally, I know how this ends thanks to Audible. Well worth the money.
