I definitely enjoyed listening to Seventh Son and as all of Orson Scott Cards books it is very well written. The jargon is perfect for the time and allows you to really get a sense of the time. The subtle but important effects of the magical is extremely well written and the author has done an excellent job at creating an interesting fantastic spin on historical events. However it does have a little too much religion and are at times a little too much like a poem for my taste. The narrators Stephen Hoye, Scott Brick and Gabrielle de Cuir are terrific as always. Overall a good listen and an interesting story.
This book and its sequel are two of the best books i have ever read! The world is absolutely fantastic and extremely well described. I have read many sci-fi and fantasy books and there is no doubt in my mind that, though i have loved other books and authors, the storm light archive books are my favorites. If you like fantasy books you owe it to yourself to read this, and hang through the first chapters of introduction because it is WELL worth it. I ate this rather large book up in less than 2 weeks, and had extreme difficulties putting it away.
I have read Brandon Sandersons Mistborn as well and enjoyed it but to me this book is on an entirely different level.
I can't wait for the next book in the series scheduled in the fall 2015.
David and Goliath is definitely an interesting book and are at times very hard to put down. Malcolm Gladwell has really found a lot if interesting cases though i sometimes felt that it was more a story of extraordinary people than an investigation into the case of the underdog against the giant. I sometimes had the feeling of the book loosing focus and burying itself in the story of an individual though it always returned and made sense of the case. The narration by Malcolm Gladwell was a little soft for me and would have preferred someone with a slightly harder voice, but otherwise good narration. Overall a very interesting book thats definitely worth the a credit, especially if you enjoyed his other books.
