"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.
the narration of this book is brilliant. Steven Pacey is as engaging and entertaining as always and Makes the characters-both male and female come to life. this is the 4th Abercrombie I have read and I have loved them all.. I think of them as a cross between a fist full of dollars and Ivan hoe directed by Tarentino! They are well written, funny, violent, descriptively graphic and sometimes shocking. There are twists and turns in the plot and things done to the main characters that are completely unexpected. His ability to take you inside someone's head and observe the developing plot from another perspective is genius. This is a book about greed and cruelty and war which shows how futile and unnecessary they all are. very sorry it is finished. Iain
Another excellent story, one of his best. Superbly read as always. Keep them coming can't get enough of this combo.
"Which bad person you like best"
Excellent series lot of bad guy's but who do you like best
Just loved it great characters well written and narrated
"A massive First Law fan fest"
This book left me literally crying for more.
I've read all three First Law books and all three First Law books and all three First Law world books and they never cease to amaze me.
I would absolutely love to see more and more of these but I think sadly there will not be...
Glokta is a squeal.
"Say one thing for Joe Abercrombie, say he's a bloody good writer..."
Last book of the three additions to the first law trilogy sees a welcome return for some familiar faces, and a very emotional encounter to be found where it was expected the least.
This particular book proves he is master of not just grim dark, but master of getting you to love a despicable character, and also hate them to your very soul. Exquisite reading, go throw all your money at his work. Start with the first law.
Very well read by Stephen Pacy I might add, cementing character in inflection and tone.
I want more from the first law world and I want it now. Right now. That's not going to happen of course; you've got to be realistic about these things...
"I love bloody nine"
I love these books, I have read all of the First Law series. And I have pre ordered the new on for the end of this month.
I love the graphic way a fight or a battle is written it was great to here from Lamb better known as the bloody nine. He has aged and mellowed but is still a good character.
I would have loved to here more about the dragon people but I should imagine they may have a role down the line.
"fab set of books"
fab set of books from the original 3 right the way through to 6. I read the first 3 and the months later was glad to find these but book 6 really cap a brilliant end to a very enjoyable set of storries
"Retired? Not quite."
I suggest not to read this as a first one of Abercrombie's novels.
Time has passed in Abercrombie's world. There is a new storyline and some new characters - but also some old friends from the previous books.
He often only hints at a person's past. A nice touch if you know what it is about - but I would probably find it annoying if I didn't know the history behind.
Read his other works first - regards from a fan ☺
"Love this book"
I think "Lamb/Logan 9 fingers" is an amazing character and I would love Mr Abercrombie to do another book with him in it!
Maybe a prequel? Maybe Lamb stumbles across A certain wizard with the seed???
Brilliant story, narrator and characterisation 10/10
