Woke identity politics

Uninspired stories that could be applied to any fantasy used to push the author's agenda.

Extremely Boring

If you're a diehard WOW fan, then you will probably like this book. I am not a hard-core fan or an aficionado and I found this book exceedingly boring. The stories it encompasses definitely fit the description of folklore and fairytales, and I think I was disappointed because I was expecting action and adventure, which none of these stories are.

Narrative Immersion

Over loved this collective of wonderful stories. My only found challenge with offering a perfect 5 stars on performance is the fact the Narrator did not change with the stories. Don’t get me wrong, they did an awesome job but it was difficult to really immerse myself in the stories when it came the the varying character demographics when they all sounded nearly the same with only minor changes in elocution, enunciation, or intonation.

Great listen & narration!

I loved this collection! The stories were all so different from one another and really interesting and they had a lot of meaning. I particularly like this narrator- her voice is smooth and expressive and she brings so much emotion and life to the varied characters. GREAT listen!

A brilliant collection

All of these stories felt like old fairy tales, with that wow twist. Each of them paints a tale with a simple message, but also expands or explores the world of azeroth in interesting ways. They each have their own style, but also all fit the theme perfectly.

My only minor irritation was a few issues with certain words being pronounced incorrectly. That can be understood with invented fantasy words, though production should catch it, there were sometimes normal english words. Plaited hair is pronounced "plated".

Other than that minor issue, and it is very minor, the narration is wonderful. The narrator captures a good sense of a tale being told to children, with a bright joyous voice.

could be better

would have been one star if it wasn't for the last story.

I really struggled with keeping my attention on the book and this rarely happens, it may have been the narrator or just the stories apart from a couple had characters that wasn't great.
or a mix of the two, I'll stick to fully flushed out warcraft novels next time.
