I finished this book thinking I must be too stupid to get it. The entire book is written in what I think of as Old English. I would compare it to Shakespeare (metaphorically only)- meaning I had to basically translate the sentences into language that made sense to me. I suppose some people like this type of writing. There's even some reviews by Dean Koontz & Neil Gaiman (two of my favorite authors) on here. But in my opinion it took too much effort to understand it; listening to this book felt like an assignment rather than an escape.
If you're considering this for purchase - please, do what I didn't do. Listen to the sample provided, and read the desciption where they have quoted some lines from the book. And just be aware, this is what the ENTIRE book is like.
