I felt like I was listening to a long series of syllogisms read by someone trying to sound relevant and important; when really they didn't have much to say. From my point of view, this audio book was just plain boring.
What a terrific start to what is bound to be a great epic. After about 45 hours of listening, I felt like it was over too soon. I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment.
It took me almost an hour to warm up to the characters and the story -- but once I was into it, I was hooked. The story line is surprising and original. The main character is attractive, smart, repulsive, irritating, well-meaning and complex. The book straddles sci-fi and fantasy, with a strong lean toward sci-fi.
I am a bit of a fantasy snob -- not much grabs me or impresses me. Wow, did this book get my attention. I found myself making excuses to sit in my car a bit longer so I could find out what happened next!
