High fantasy at its most captivating, compelling, and imaginative...this is one of those rare stories that's not just a powerful piece of fiction, but rather a contemplative meditation on predestination, free-will, and the nature of our passions and motivations.
There's no word on when or if the third book will ever be published. Tread with caution, it ends on a cliffhanger.
All of the situations, enemies, secrets never went anywhere. Book 2 just stopped in a way that bored me.
Book 2 turned this into a kid story about a boy, sex encounters, & always ended back in school doing the same old same old as usual. Nothing ever really happened.
Narrator was fine. Book just didn't have any story worth following by the end of book 2
Kothe, Sex Fairies, an evolved tribe of warriors who didn't know where babies came from. Why would this kid have such an undeserved reputation, was some kind of genius, & wind up in such a dead end place with a faerie companion? None of these points we addressed or made sense. Especially the last one.
If you liked the ending of HBO the Sopranos, maybe you would be okay with this ending. I didn't like either of them.
I have read the book on two occasions and I just finished listening to the book for the first time. The presenter was wonderful! The voices made me laugh, took me away and- with certain future seeing fey- shook me. I have a love for this series that builds with each time I travel through it. I would recommend this book to anyone with a fancy for fiction. As a matter of fact I have, and many of those who partake love the book as much as I do.
I disagree with a few pronunciation choices, but overall a wonderful experience. I've listened at least three times now.
