I think Steven Pacey is wonderful with his narrations. His voices, accents, and emotions are fantastic. Abercrombie is an amazing author. I have read all his works to date. I'm never disapointed
So many different characters, with twists and turns, that only Abercrombie can do
Again his is brilliant, with voices, accents, and emotions.
There were many but the first and was the attack on the farm homestead.
This book reminds me a bit of the Glen Cook series "Black Company". Of course it's only one book compared to 10, but the characters and inter actions remind me of Black Company series. If you enjoyed that series you will love this story. The best part you only have to read this one book. However I suggest all of Abercrombie's works, he is a genius.
The best character from Abercrombie's First Law returns to us and doesn't disappoint. As is standard, this is bloody, bleak, but hugely entertaining. Steven does excellent voicing and accents. Thanks Joe, and bring us more of the Bloody Nine!
In writing this review, I'm assuming that 99% of the readers will have read the first books (The Blade Itself, etc.) with Logan Nine Fingers as one of the main characters. Suffice to say, it was great having him back. Even better was the return of Steven Pacey as narrator. The Abercrombie-Pacey alliance makes for an exceptional experience.
This book is a great follow on to the early stories, but can stand alone on if the reader has no background of the characters. Indeed, many characters are new. Although not as epic in scale as the first three books, the story has a simple entertaining plot that moves along nicely. Be warned, however, that this book tends to the darker side, as do most of the books in this series. Joe Abercrombie’s characters are neither good nor evil, which can make for some interesting sub-plots.
Overall, highly recommended, but you should start with the first 3 books in the series to get the best appreciation of this one.
This is as good as the First Law Trilogy. I found myself sitting in the car to just listen to a few more minutes and was disappointed that it had to end. It's a great story filled with vibrant characters. Next to Lamb I really enjoyed the appearance of Nicola Cosca. Dark, gritty and pretty much not a single "good" guy among the characters, I love this book and the world Abercrombie creates. Steven Pacey is the perfect narrator for these stories. I can't wait for another one.
Disciple of the written word and Audible fanatic. I am an Urban and Epic Fantasy Fan. I also enjoy some Paranormal Romance.
Everytime I read Joe Abercrombie I am surprised at how much I enjoy his books. If that seems a strange statement then understand that I am not usually a fan of this type of storytelling.
The characters are real not overblown like most in this genre.
I found myself laughing and wanting to remember quotes from the characters.
The action and interaction in this book never left me bored or allowed my mind to wander.
You will be surprised at how many characters you recognize if you read his other books and if you are a new reader you won't be lost but references will drive you to pick up his other books.
I will be looking forward to see what Joe Abercrombie comes up with next.
Just refund the book back to a credit and then buy the book with that credit again. you may need to log out and log back in for your android/iphone audible app but this will allow you download the audiobook without issue.
Another great book from Joe. I was worried this would be Best Served Cold version 2.0 ...it was not. Definitely recommend this book to those reading Joe's works.
This is a full fiction western. It flirts with fantasy but never really touches it. Like a jr high dance, it wants to be fantasy but can really pull through. We are left wondering if it's the future or the past.
