I am a fan of Lee Childs/Jack Reacher and have read all the books. Some of them I like some of them I didn't.
This was my first audio book and I must say I enjoyed it thoroughly! The author and the narrator have done a splendid job. Glad I tried it on audio.
Not sure what exactly other readers liked about this book. In fact, I read it to the end just because of the high comments it got. Otherwise, it would have been the first fantasy book I left unfinished in a while.
It's pretty bad - the plot is absurd and ridiculous, the main character, again a 17 year old kick-ass girl who is repeatedly allowed to do whatever she likes without any substantial consequences in a world where the rest pay dearly for their actions.
The rest of the characters are simply not there - the usual grown-up people who in fact have no idea what's exactly going on.
It gets better, the world is original and I was attracted to it, but it didn't overcome the shallowness of the action and the plot.
Full of action, interesting plot, original characters ... a must read!
A very well written and entertaining story.
Fantastic end - looking forward to his future works.
