Ralph Lister did a fantastic job, but even he could not help this
this book was so boring that characters are lifeless cut them all
Excellent start to the series, and even though I had read the series some years back, it was great to listen in the verbal format. Highly recommend, the narrator was fantastic!
I felt like I was dropped into the middle of the story, I had no ideal who was who and which side they were on. I have listened and read very complicated stories but never had such a hard time understanding a book. I was very frustrated and got tired of going back trying to figure out what was going on and gave up on the book.
no, I listen to audiobooks in my commute and this book requires 100% of your attention. If you get distracted, you'll be lost for a few minutes.
Sometimes he gets confused as to who's voice he's reading.
Maybe, no clue.
I've been listening to audio books for more than 5 years now. I've got hundreds of them. This one is by far the only one where 7 hours in, I'm still not quite sure who's who.
An amazingly constructed world, filled with magic, mayhem and great characters. The only issue I have is that the author details things rather oddly. Sometimes the book feels like a history book to another world(which is kinda cool but rather dry). Other times he flashes from place to place explaining almost nothing until you have no idea what's actually going on.
I'd recommend two listens if your going to go on with the series.
When he opened his mouth
Do not waste your time, this book should offer a refund
Nothing, I bought the book based on other reviews everyone seemed so excited about the series available. I've listened for two hours and still don't get it. I'm giving up and moving on wished I had not wasted my credit.
Not sure but not this series. I may listed to the Dresden series again.
Nothing against the performance the book is just not to my liking it's slow and confusing can't find the story line.
if his books are like this who needs sleeping pills
no fraking way
the spoken content
all the superfluous characters, which means about 98% of them
Don,t waste your credit with this one, it,s tedious and boring. Definitely the worst I have listened to in a long time
Mostly use audio books in planes these days. Know I really like a book when I find myself with earphones still on from home to hotel
Started listening to this on an airplane and then continued on return trip. Spent the 1st 4-5 hours convinced I'd somehow bought a middle book or the 1st book in a series that had the background told previously. Nope - author just writes characters, their actions, the landscape, the whole entire universe like he wrote it down as he thought of them. Spur of the moment - no context for anything. You have parts, books, chapters all loosely driving a threadbare storyline.
While the Audible description outlines a plot seemly based on "WhiskeyJack" character, he's actually one of the least visible characters in book. Hours 5 - rest of book didn't get any better.
For those who talk about how complex the book is... badly written doesn't make a book complex. Will not be purchasing further books in series.
I was completely lost during this entire story, I even went back and re-listened to the beginning to try and make some sense out of what this story was about, with no luck at all. I could never figure out what was happening in the story, or why the characters were doing or saying what they were. I have never been this lost with a book before. Will not continue with this writer at all.
The narrator was very good, just needed better material to work with.
