It took me a chapter or two to get into Rudnicki's style, but once I got the hang of it I really started to like it.
The book, as a beginning of a series, has good points and bad points. Some of the action is great, some of the philosophical meanderings of the "gods" not so much. I'd probably have a go at the second book in the series, but I have almost a dozen other audio books lined up before it.
Very good story...great narration! I don't know if I can make it through the entire series...but would recomend this as a great stand alone novel.
While I do not wish to spoil the story for others who may wish to read it I must say that if I had known that this was Dances With Wolves and Avatar dressed up in new clothes I would not have purchased it, even at the reduced $4.95 price.
The end, which was supposed to be a big surprise, seemed obvious to me long before the "revelation" and readers who are religious in nature should be warned that this story might not be for them. Overall I was disappointed. I need to stop buying books just because they are on sale ...
I must admit that I was a bit annoyed at first. The POV was so Euro-centric. But the end made me kinda wonder.
Unfortunately this was one of those books that I couldn't finish, probably because it falls in the fantasy rather than scifi category that I was expecting. It seemed to be a series of episodes of a demi-god trying to defeat a god, of course with neither of them ever dying. It just seemed so pointless. But obviously other reviewers liked it, so maybe it's just not to my taste.
i love too read and have people read to me...
the narator, though he did a good job, his voice was real deep and mono tone. kinda put me to sleep. this book dragged on. i paid for it, so i had to finish it. but, i was seriously debating giving up on more than one occasion. good story though.
