This book accomplishes all that A Song of Ice and Fire Did without the coarseness of the series. It contains all of the brutality you would expect in the book about war, without the harsh language and sexuality you might expect from an adult novel (making this an easy book to listen to in the car even with the whole family). Also, there is not a dull moment in this novel--it moves along at a steady pace, never getting bogged down by unnecessary description or pointless conversations. No two characters are alike, and there are many heroes worth rooting for.
Awesome reading! Sanderson does it again with an in depth, engaging sorry from start to finish. With a few very well done twists thrown in this was absorbing from beginning to end.
An excellent work and highly recommended. Certainly the best work of fiction I have listened to an Audible. The story so complex, the characters, so rich. It took me a while to get into the story and then it took hold of me and didn't let go. The characters in the story wrestle with deep issues concerning social justice, morality, and meaning that leave you thinking. I can't recommend this work more highly.
This book is amazing and the different accents definitely added to this story being so enjoyable and easy to follow. With that being said, the female narrator over pronounces words and is hard to listen to. She sounds like the GPS navigator in my car with her lack of animation and robotic voice.
Only annoyance is that the two readers pronounced one character's name very different, and that is not only confusing, but temporarily rips you out of the story. Shame on whoever was in charge during production for this glaring flaw in an otherwise epic story and production
I liked the book but the some aspects of it frustrated me. the change of characters and the teasing went a little to far in my opinion. there was a point in the middle of the book where i felt the story stagnated.
overall I enjoyed the book and im looking forward to listening to the second one.
