Almost felt like two half stories joined together, but they eventually smoothed themselves out. I started the book kind of wishing I had chosen something else, but I finished interested in reading the third book--though not right away.
But still compelling. The narrator is first rate. The best, without question, that I have listened to. So good he spoils everything else I listen to. Nuances in voices and accents make characters come alive, but in a way that you always know who's speaking. Well, well done. And a great listen.
...another grand escape into intrigue, adventure, and fun. Locke and Jean get into, and out of, amazing circumstances, getting what they need, trying for what they want most. As in real life, retirement is an elusive goal. Worthy reading!
The second book in the Gentleman Bastards Sequence was entertaining and exciting, I'm just not sure it measured up to the magic of the first book. However I'm willing to give the third book a try I'll let you know when I do.
This is such a fun novel! Scott Lynch has done his homework; his use of sailing lingo is accurate. And his storytelling is, once again, top-notch.
Michael Page is a superb. He brings the characters to life with his unique style as he reads.
If you liked Scott's first novel, this one is sure to please!
Yes, though I'd have to wait until I don't remember every thing thing that happened.
Any moment with Zamira Drakasha!
Hard to say for sure, but I loved his voice.
All of it? The climax with the fire orb for sure. Not saying any more, because spoilers!
Just that I absolutely love this book.
kept saying "gods damns" like "oh look its the gods damns boat". it was like a 13 year old trying to impress some . older kids. I love cussing and I think think is essential to a good book. but too much is a turn off
