In The Well at the World's End, Ralph of Upmeads, youngest son of the King of Upmeads, leaves home (where nothing exciting ever happens) without permission and sets out looking for adventure. When he hears rumors of a well that exudes water with magical properties, he is intrigued and begins his quest. Along the way, he travels through various towns and wildernesses and meets -- and is sometimes led astray by -- a host of interesting people including a mysterious knight, a beautiful woman who may be a goddess, a treacherous servant, a brave tavern wench, a barbarian warrior, a solitary sage, and a sadistic king. Book 4 finishes his adventure. - Summary by Kristingj (5 hr 27 min)

The story was wonderful but some of the readers need to be replaced. I never realized that women were such better readers then most of the men who were reading. Either they could not read properly and had little storytelling ability, or-- and this is true of one especially-- they overdramarized the reading so that it became almost ludicrous. There was one notable exception, one male reader who was great. The reading for the first three books, done mostly by women, was much better.
