Well written and thought out, more of an adult perspective, great fight scenes. This is great escapists fantasy!
Thick and juicy story. Lots of subplots going in many different directions keep things very interesting.
I thought the story was painfully slow, and written for a prepubescent child. I've listened to 5 of 22.5 hrs and it hasn't gotten any better.
The main character is reportedly a 17 year old boy, but acts like he is still 10-13. The descriptions are verbose but childlike.
Listening to him drone on and on about his boring chores, doesn't make for a very exciting or intriguing book.
After purchasing works by Sanderson, Jordan, Glen Cook, Sergey Lukyanenko, or Brooks's Shannara series this was very disappointing.
