People that like books with a lot off talking and character build up without any action
Boring way off trying to make a story, nothing happened
He did a good job
Boring only wanted to end
The writing style is enjoyable, character development is well done, I just want less ambiguity on where the action is headed. Very much not a stand alone book and it left me feeling a bit cheated and frustrated with story direction. I'll have to get the second book before I can make up my mind if this was a total waste of time. Speaking of time, this kind of book structure is the same reason I tossed the Wheel of Time series, lots of development but where is the pay off?
Great narrator. The book is unfortunately a long buildup for the final few chapters of the book. Don't get me wrong, the final third of the book is awesome. I just got so bored I considered cutting my losses on this book and just skip this series. I'm glad I didn't though. The characters are all unique and interesting but nothing really happens during the time you get to know them.
Hilariously, savagely dark and violent. And yet, there is tenderness, too. The author clearly cares about his characters, as cruel as he can be to them, and so do we.
Written and narrated with great wit, each complimenting the other perfectly. I'm blown away all around!
Joe Abercrombie and Steven Pacey are the best.
I've listened to a lot of audio books. And this has been my favorite. Steven Pacey is the best voice actor I've heard so far.
Attention! Award winner! The likes of Tolkien, Alexandre Dumas, Voltaire! Read it! I know you will find even better comparison... This recording is excellent, voices are great! And its not just ''read''. Buy the book but don't miss this integral recording. Like listening to games of thrones and (anathema!) ... with a better story. A touch of Zola, hard cold reality.... In a ''Fantasy'' novel... Bravo Monsieur Abercromby... Excellent literature! Great Fun! Intelligence! Can't wait for your next book, series or Novel, I will get it!Alexandre Dumas The 3 musketeers...
