Best: The world is interesting and some of the story, while predictable, was very fun.
Worst: There are so many made up words that there is a definition in every chapter heading.
He failed the XKCD test
I'll be looking for the reader, Humphrey Bower. He was delightful.
The sad coming of age tale of a mopey teen/young man who, though he gets everything he's ever wanted, can't appreciate it and always looks for more in the future.
Steelheart was a good start and painted the world in the stark black and white of a young man bent on revenge.
Firefight adds wonderful depth and tones of grey that make the world and characters come alive.
Someone who enjoys
Cut the over-thinking by the characters, especially as a cheap trick to lengthen a countdown.
A plot in whic I cared about any of the characters.
The action was too often distracted with detailed world-descriptions.
I wanted the characters to just get on with it rather than spending so long on the rich descriptions.
Leave it as-is. It's just not my style.
Beautifully detailed world. I could easily see, smell and taste it!
Simon R. Green? no
Marc Vietor? YES
Not worth it
John Taylor. His gritty portrayal was perfect.
If he says "In the Nightside" one more time, I'm going to punch something.
We already know that the characters are "in the Nightside". You don't have to remind us every page. I mean that literally. The main character says or thinks "in the Nightside" once or twice a conversation.
