Czerneda used to be one of my favorite authors, I have always enjoyed her sf novels. A Turn of Light is just terrible. It is like the worst romance novel ever. For example, the main person Jenn Nalynn is supposed to be 19 and acts like the most selfish totally spoiled brat about ten years old, totally unlikable. I suffered about 10 hours of listening about her going on and on about marriage and escaping from the village before I almost screamed and hit someone. Then I did the most sensible thing and turned it off.
I don't want to waste too many words on this review but save your money on this one.
I really liked the story, if I hadn't I would have stopped to listen after 30 minutes because the narrator was terrible. With another narrator I might even have given the book 5 stars. The story is in the Morgan and Abercrombie tradition, ruthless fantasy.
Do not miss out on this book! It is a fantasy book about believable people, idealism warring with necessities. The magical system is fresh and inventive. And to top it off you get to laugh out loud now and then. One of the best books (if not the best) I have listened to.
Christian Rodska is awesome as a narrator. He is one of the best!
The series Malazan Book of the Fallen is the best I have ever read. Now Erikson expands around this amazing world he built and we get to know more what came before.
Among the top 20.
Lamb is my favorite. He has been in several of Abercrombies books and it is interesting to see how he struggles with himself.
No, I didn't have any extreme reactions.
Abercrombie is the best.
Yes I would since Matthew Wolf is a very good narrator.
I would compare it to Joe Abercrombies books. It is the same gritty fantasy.
I am looking forward to listening to more from Miles Cameron.
I would try another book from R. Scott Bakker but not with Kevin Orton som narrator.
I would change the narrator.
His reading was overall annoying.
It might have but I will have to read it in another format to find out.
I really looked forward to the Aspect Emperor triology, I even added the second book to my wishlist. But I see that Kevin Orton narrated that one too so it will get off the list.
I loved the way people are not simple how they have to make the difficult choices.
When Pazel realise that everybody has forgotten him.
Michael Page performs all characters equally good.
Yes it was.
I loved the story and Michael Page enhanced it even more with his voice.
