Ok, I have to say I began really liking the story but, I am beginning to realize that he if didn't continue to describe every stitch of clothing each woman wears, like 10 times each, or how low cut their dresses are, or say "ageless face" (in fact I am going to count how many times in the next book!) or letting me know how every incidental character is doing besides getting to the story, I could go no and on... It took him a whole book to really accomplish nothing. This series could easily have been wrapped up in 5-6 books.
In each book he spends so much time describing useless details, and wraps up each book very quickly in the last few minutes, spending very little time on climatic scenes. Any way, going to try get through the series because I started it, but beginning to think I could get more out of reading the synopsis on Wikipedia
First book was great, last two slow and boring. So much build up to the finale and like Robert Jordan very little put into the climax that was building over the 3 books.
I found myself angry at Fitz for being so dumb and the story was very predictable.
not read anything else by Robin Hobb
When I finish a book or a series, I rate it by how much I want to listen to it again. I never want to pick this series up again. Does not compare at all to say the Riyria Revelations series or pretty much anything from Michael J Sullivan. I have listen to those books many times and the story never gets old.
Toss up between Royce and Hadrian
He delivers the story and the characters well
no sure, but love to see this series made to film
take a chance on the series
I have listen to this complete series at least twice. Characters great, believable. Story gripping and once you start hard to put down.
Hard to say, I have listened/read most all the best of the fantasy series. This one stands alone.
fitting end to the series, thanks to all the audible members that wrote the reviews, which encouraged me to buy this series
Who knows, the series puts me to sleep, so redundant, and Jordan uses 100 words when he could have gotten away with 10
Long, drawn out, repeats everything about each character in each book, he spends all his time describe useless details and then spends no time on the climax of the book.
I have quit this series,I know people go on an on about how great it is and how great Jordan was, but frankly this series could have been finished in half the time. So I basically went to Wikipedia, read the the plot summaries of the rest and that truly was a better use of my time. If you haven't started this series..don't!!!
not what I thought
He is a great reader
I was a little disappointed, not as good as the other books. Seemed like he was just trying to finish off the story. After all the build up about the final battle, it was rather short and he spent more time on the after story
one of King's best
great story, but truly the narrator is what makes this audiobook
laugh at times
Came across the Name of the Wind by chance and I am so glad that I did, loved it. The second book ever better, couldn't stop listening to it! Can't wait for the next one.
