I bought this audiobook because the review said it was "witty and urbane." There is humour that is so bad it becomes funny again, but this book's humour is so awful I was shocked. I don't mean "boo, bad pun" or dirty humour, I mean the humour was just not funny. It wasn't even interesting. I kept listening hoping it would improve. It didn't. Only buy this book as a horrifying example of bad literature.
This book is nicely read. The reader did a great job with the character voices. The story is fun, but it completely rips off Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. If you've read widely in the sci-fi fantasy genre it may drive you a bit crazy how unoriginal the story is. There was nothing new or technically brilliant about it, but I sheepishly enjoyed it anyway.
