I am a big fan of Robin Hobb, and have loved all of her series. This book is good, but it seems like a little more of the same of the first. I thought there would be more of a change but it seems the whole voyage up the Rain Wild river drags on and on. I know it's a long journey for the characters in the story, but almost two full books of the same thing gets a bit boring. I was still interested in the story and do look forward to the next book.
I read this series in paperback a few years ago, and I fell in love with it then(So did my mom and sister!). Listening to the audio book has been equally as enjoyable. I am a big fan of fantasy, and for me this series ranks with The Wheel of Time. The narration is perfect! I look forward to seeing the rest of Robin Hobb's books on audio.
I forced myself to finish the first six hours. After that I gave it a few more hours but couldn't take it anymore! There are not many books I have not finished reading. There are no audiobooks that I have not finished listening to until I got this one.
