Excellent story, masterful performance deliciously sarcastic. Once you start this story you are hooked. read and enjoy.
Another great story my Abercrombie written in the style of a western. Great characters, great one liners, great sense of humour. What makes this a truly great audio book is the narration which is second to none. Fantastic!
Steven Pacey is brilliant as always. The story was a bit slower than previous books, still good, but there isn't as much going on here as in earlier books. Great to see the ongoing lives of some great characters though. Worth s listen / read to any Abercrombie fan, but not as gripping as the blade itself, best served cold et al.
"The best yet!"
All his books are great, immense stories and they all make for Red Country to be a huge read!
"Best of the series"
This is there best so far in the series. I'm hanging for the next one.
loved it, pacey brings so much more to an already fantastic story, buy this audio book !
Best one yet and that is saying something given the quality of the previous books...
"Where should one start?"
like always joe you drag us Down to what ever country it is at the time and I must say you had me at the cowardly Northants, the feeling when you know something and your like "HAH! you cleaver bastard!" is so much worth it listening to your stories is an odyssey and hopeful lamb will turn up in the future don't read the summary just buy the book, it's well worth it, and Steven brings it allt together the whole shebang.
Like any sequal to a great series it has a special place in your heart for characters old and new and in the case of a good narrator the reader too. Unfortunately this story like all the books that came after it is a shadow of the original trilogy but still an enjoyable enough listen.
"My Favourite audio book experience so far."
This Joe Abercrombie and Steven Pacey combination, for me, is absolute audiobook heaven. I've now listened to all 6 of the full length First Law novels and they just get better and better.
