I have been enjoying the Fraseer Trilogy on audiobook and am ready for the next series , but can't find The Tawny Man Trilogy on audiobook. Does anyone know if they exist?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2010 8:01:27 PM PST
Tawny Man
1. Fool's Errand (2001) read by Jack Fox 22hrs24min
2. The Golden Fool (2002) read by Jack Fox 24hrs44min
3. Fool's Fate (2003) read by Jack Fox 31hrs15min

I know Fool's Errand at least was available on cassette--don't know about CDs.

Good luck finding these, but I've listened to the first part of Fool's Errand, and I wouldn't make much of an attempt myself, anyway. I'd really like an updated version, preferably again narrated by Paul Boehmer.

The Soldier Son Trilogy was very enjoyable but the Farseer Trilogy was riveting. Paul Boehmer did an excellent reading. I really wish someone would put the Tawny Man Trilogy into audiobook form. I had serious withdrawal symptoms after finishing the Farseer Trilogy and miss all the characters created by Robin Hobb and portrayed by Paul Boehmer. Readers can make or break a book for the audio-bibliophile and Paul Boehmer's many voices certainly colorized the stories. I hope someone out there in Recorded Book Land reads this and makes it happen.

You can look it up to see if your local library(ies) have it on their free (with a library card) audiobook download system, Overdrive (they have audiobooks in WMA or MP3; Kindle books; ePub books; Mobipocket books).

Good luck!

Man! Am I actually going to have to read this trilogy? Just finished the farseer series on audible and I want more... Want!!!

Posted on Feb 28, 2012 11:15:05 PM PST
Madam meow, if you want more, then I definitely recommend The Liveship Traders. It's related to The Farseer series, and Anne Flosnik narrates the Liveship series very well, indeed, although perhaps not <quite> up to Boehmer's standard.

Thank you! I just used my audible credit to get the first book of Liveship Traders now. I'm so excited to stay with this author. I loved Boehmer too, I find it comparable to Roy Dotrice's work on Game of Thrones, etc. I haven't listened to a female narrator yet either, so that is also exciting - and I noticed she does Hobb's Dragons Keep trilogy too, which is quite promising! Ah, the glorious world of fantasy!

I would like Boehmer too! I just got done listening to the night angel series, which he did an outstanding job on as well.

Why is this trilogy not on Audible? Every other series from Robin Hobb is here but not the one in the middle? It's available in the UK but not here in the States? WTF? I will not buy the other books until I can listen to these. It is stupid too listen to the other books that come after these without first listening to the ones that come before it...

I had the same thought. If you have an Audible account you can request the book. That's what I just did, but I don't know if I'll get them for another week or two.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 19, 2013 5:25:09 PM PDT
Yes, it exists, damn it! But not in the USA!!! WTF!?!?!?!?! I've tried every which way to get it, and it's impossible...unless you're officially blind, then you can download it for free from the congressional library....this totally SUCKS!!!!!

Don't beat yourself over the head too much about not being able to get the audio trilogy. I've listened to it--at least as much of it as I could stand, which wasn't that much--and it's awful.

As time passes, I'm losing hope for a Paul Boehmer version, but on the other hand, it won't take much for a narrator to improve on what's out there now. I just wonder if we'll ever see another version, and what the roadblock to one is. I can't imagine it being due to the previous Boehmer readings being unsuccessful, although I guess it's possible.

Madam meow says:
I wonder if it's not coming out on audio because Paul Boehmer doesn't want to read the voice of Thick... It's taken me a year and a half to get through two and a half of the books in this trilogy; I don't really like sitting and reading so much as listening to audiobooks and doing chores.

Same here, I'm listening to the Jack Fox versions.. which don't seem as nice as the UK samples of the other reader.. not much else to be done about it!

Brilliance Audio is releasing the Tawny Man trilogy over the course of July and August of this year. No listing up on Audible yet, but since they're both owned by Amazon I expect they'll be available there once they come out. The reader is James Langton, not Paul Boehmer, but I listened to some of his other titles and it seems like he's good enough.

I think we have the new Fitz and the Fool trilogy to thank for this new release. But Fool's Fate won't be out until two weeks or so after the new book comes out, which is kind of a bummer.

Fool's Errand (The Tawny Man Trilogy)

Fool's Assassin: Book One of the Fitz and the Fool Trilogy

Yep! First book comes out August 12th

Not sure if the Dragons series (you mean the Rainwilds Chronicles, right?) would be vital, but it'll probably have some loose tie-ins, like most of her books in the world.
