For fans of the last book you really won't be disappointed. It picks up exactly where the last one left off. I might as well just be the next paragraph. The topic and the tone are the same as the first book. This isn't a negative thing however as the story still carries on at a good pace. New events and twists. I gave it one less star than the first book simply because it was more of the same. I liked it but I have to say it didn't suprise me anywhere. If you liked the last one then you'll be happy with this one too.
No, but it's not inferior either. The perfomance is good, voices clear but restrained.It's an American doing British accents for the most part.
This was new and novel for me, I bought it after reading the good reviews. I wasn't dissapointed. Such an interesting idea, so many different aspects going on here; alternate histories, superhuman powers, old world magic, universal beings and nazis but it all hangs together very well. Truely unique in my opinion. Great find.
Nothing new here, more of the same but still good none the less. It does have a few flaws in the story that tend to unravel a little as the story goes on. Gloss over these and it's still an enjoyable listen.
A little disappointed to be honest. It kinda just fizzled out.
Didn't really know what to expect but this was a reallyy gripping book. The story is innovative and the writing really is good. Characters are strong but not predictable. Very very good.
This book passed the time, but it didn't take much concerntration or brainpower. Some of the descriptions of the battles are good, but overall the writing and the story quality just aren't there. Nothing that hasn't been done better elsewhere.
Stunning book. It takes some concerntration, as do all Iain Bank's book, but it is well worth the effort. One of the the most innovative writers. More please!
