Michael Page blew me away on this one, he's a spectacular narrator. The story is a fun romp, ocean's 11 style. The stellar narration makes this better than reading the book (which I did many months ago.) so glad I decided to get the audiobook and retread this tale!
The story is okay....not as good as most of the reviews indicate.....but it's unnecessarily long. Also - the author might have Tourette's syndrome, because the cursing simply doesn't fit....he just drops F-bombs all over the place with no real purpose. Overall, this book is just average.
I already read and loved this book before listening to it, but the reader for this text added another level. He did an amazing job with voices/characterization.

A new genre for me and at the start I was a bit nervous. But not for long. Great book
Didn't know anything about this book when I started listening, so I had no expectations. The narrator was brilliant and the story pulled me in, half way though I was wanting to be a Gentleman Bastard.
This book had a lot of action and plot change apps for the length of the book. There was a point where it was slightly confusing, when the story loops back-and-forth from present to flashbacks, but we caught on and really enjoyed it.
Really interesting fantasy adventure story with great characters and good world-building. If you like the idea of a charming con man/thief getting himself into and out of impossible scraps, you'll love this one. The narration was fantastic; one of the few books that I would rather listen to than read on print. Hearing the different accents added a lot of depth to the book.
