No mercy, ever.
These characters, their struggles, so heart wrenching... Oh Coltaine, oh Duiker.. Mappo. I made a mistake by reading Memories of Ice and listening to Deadhouse Gates at the same time, since they took place at the same time... so without spoiling anything, someone's fate was already known ...but it didn't matter; I was held by the narrative entirely.
This guy is fucking amazing. There is only so much someone can do with dozens and dozens of characters to voice and keep things distinct and he did that and more. I'm tempted to listen backwards from this book to the beginning of the saga if Lister is the guy behind the voice on them.
So many moving moments. But Duiker saving the toddler outside the gates of Aren and his final scene of the book are a toss up.
Mind blown, I had forgotten how good an audiobook could be. Thank you Erickson, Lister and Audible.
