This book started out very well. I was interested. There are some interesting parts but I don't think I will listen to the others. too bad.
I enjoy the Gentleman Bastard series and am a fan of Scott Lynch. I love to listen to Michael Page. I started and stopped with this one many times and finally just powered through, wishing it would end. This particular book is probably best enjoyed in book form so that you can skip over the dreary parts. I will buy the next book and reread the first two.
I did not care for this. I can see why some people might, but it is just not my cup of tea.
I loved it. Great to revisit old characters. Very good story line -just a whiff of predictability but enough plot twists to make it well worth the credit. Loved the narration.
Love the characters. Had to rename my cats, Filth, Pond Scum, Crazy Bastard and Turd. The narration is excellent as well. The story put me in mind of the audible versions of Joe Abercrombie's work. I am looking forward to the second book.
This seemed to drag. The narrator changes her voice so the characters are a bit off for me.
This is a southern character and the voice suits. I thought the story was a hoot. I had passed this book by a couple of times based on the reviews. I listened to the sample and gave it a try. Glad I did.
Michael Page. Love him.
This story is more about a group of people telling a story about a story than it is anything else. I was never pulled in. I was unable to suspend reality and flow with the tale. It was like watching something instead of doing something.
If I listen to the other stories, it will be to hear Michael Page, not because I care about the story or characters.
I had been searching for a story. This is it. Love the narration! Love the pace. Great tale. Wish there were more.
He smells everything and she tastes everything and then there is a great deal about food. I lost interest before the second tape. True Blood meets the Joy of Cooking.
