I loved this entire series. I love how fun and over the top the writing is. I loved all the characters. Finally a fantasy that portrays men and women as real 3 dimensional people, even when they are completely crazy. The narrator is simply one the best I have heard on Audible. I put him in the same category as Stephen Fry. The different voices he has for the different characters is fabulous. The author's affection for London is apparent and really makes London another character in the book, which I loved. Just can't recommend highly enough. So much fun. I just can't wait until book 4.
I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
I was charmed by the first two books. This one is better still. A bit stronger plot. And it's lovely to have Lesley back. Lot's of very witty charm here.
My one issue is that they've used the same music in all three books. That is tiresome.
Unfortunately this book in the series didn't grab me like the previous ones. The performance was on par with previous installments; however, the story seemed to drag and, to be honest, I did not enjoy the chapters that took place in the sewers. Yes, the author wrote the chapters in such away as to be tolerable but I just wish he had taken a different direction and kept the story out of the pig excrement. Having lived on a farm, I know exactly how bad pigs can smell..not good!
I will listen to the next book. I have faith that this series will continue survive and continue to give me enjoyment.
The story and characters are progressing at a pace that's easy to follow. I appreciate that he slowly learns things. Unlike a movie or book where they suddenly become an expert. Only thing, narrators American accent needs a LOT of work. It was almost comical! I've heard British people complain about bad accents done by Americans, but this is the first time I've ever seen it go the other way! I enjoyed his other character enough that I can overlook it though. I really like the narrator. I've overlooked some truly horrible English and Irish accents in other books that I love.
