Attorney - love to listen to audio books
I tried this book several times. Even though it is well written and very well read, I just could not sustain any interest in continuing. There were several interesting parts, but then one of those "edge of the seat" situations arose. I don't mind intrigue and mystery, but I do not enjoy sitting so far on the edge of my seat for so long. It is uncomfortable - not enjoyable. I simply cannot imagine listening to such a long book so far on the edge of my seat. Just too aggravating and distressing. In fact, I have found many of these fantasy books too long and too edgy. There are a few good writers that have a better grasp of the fantasy series, but I am afraid that I am not enthralled with this particular writer. I will agree that he can be very funny - I just wish he did not keep me in suspense so much and that he was not so cruel in the treatment of the characters I liked. Bottom line, I quit (after 6 chapters and will not go back and will not read any more books in this series.
This is a most wonderful series! For anyone that enjoyed Game of Thrones try this series. You shan't be disappointed.
It actually took more than half of the book just to get through the very ambitious and overworked backstory. The last three hours or so was very exciting listening, but that was way too late. The characters of the story are a blend of quite meticuosly detailed portraits and flat caricatures. The latter would be quite ok if the prose does not lead you on to expect more.
Mr. Page would surely do any Shakespeare play ample justice. But in this case it is just dead wrong when he gives British nasal upper class accents for just about every lowlife street dreg. And they are a dime a dozen in this book.
loved this book. the narrator is meh though he has so many good voices. the author must have a personal fantasy of being a scam artist. haha
The author hooks his readers with incredible world building. the city and the world it's in is rich in detail and fantastic in the truest sense.
The voice actor was pretty good, but I could've used more variety in his characters, and more consistency in his voices. all in all I'd give him a B+, though.
50 something, retired professional, mother, grandmother, wife.
seemed to take a while for me to get really interested in this book, but once I did it was pretty good. not the best ever but a decent story. interesting characters.
