I felt like this book was very slow moving and then bam! All the action took place at once. It was a great story about acceptance and I'm glad I listened to it.
I enjoyed the narrator.
The writing was well done, although sometimes meandering.
The story was solid and dynamic.
The mood was magical yet grim.
It was vary long.
One of my favorite audio books, being up their with enders game.
If this weren't a first novel, this book would be incredible. Well researched, meticulous in detail, masterful storytelling and characterization. It's rare I read something that transports me like this book did. Absolutely brilliant; I am in mourning for the world set out here, now that I have finished.
The narration and voicework by George Guidall brought this incredible book to life.
Plenty of action and complexity, as well as memorable characters. I enjoyed the cultural and mythical references. Great narrator. I was sorry to see it end.
You know when there's that book that you've been "meaning to read" for some time but didn't get to it for a while? And when you did, you thought, "well, that's it then huh?" This book was not like that at all for me. It's been in the corner of my mind for ages but it met and exceeding any expectation I could ever have. I really enjoyed the narrator and I think he was a perfect choice for this book. He did a great job portraying the already well-written characters. It was a great story but it also contained deep meaning and some fun history of America. Well worth the wait.
I haven't listened to such a good book in a very long time. believable characters and excellent writing mixed with a stellar performance!
it is a bit of a slow burn, but a wonderfully told story. The narrator does the same great job he usually does, but his pacing might be a little annoying for some.
