This narrator reads way too slow! I speed it up to 1.5x!
I liked the continuation of the story. I didn't care for the new character point of views, it seemed a little like just fillers. I can't wait to get more in to Kelsingra.
Sucked me on from the beginning, can't wait fit the next book in the series!
Definitely if they like fantasy fiction
Kvothe, he's not perfect, he is consistent in his major flaw, but it's a believable one. I still care about him and what happens to him, I still don't "know him" as well as I'd like, and that's what keeps me interested.
I hate the "opening and closing" of the book. The "silence" quote. It annoys me but, oh well, the rest is all worth it.
I needed a new author while waiting for Brandon Sanderson's next masterpiece. I love Kvothe, he is flawed, but not in the irritating whiny way that most authors usually make their young characters. it's very refreshing and much more believable. I couldn't stop listening and I can't wait for the next book!!!
Entertaining enough to read to the end, but the characters didn't develop enough to grab me emotionally.
This was an okay story for me. The juvenile romanticism was a little annoying, but I did expect it from the other reviews left. The world us very interesting to me, and there was not a lot of delving into it which was a disappointment. The characters were a little too one dimensional as well.
Having said all this, I was looking for a "lighter" listen from all the usual books I read, and it did deliver the lighter entertainment I was looking for.
I don't know if I will read the next one. Probably but not sure.
I am a late comer to the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I didn't realize it was a youtube series until I we recommended this book by Audible. It's true to the "original" Austen story, but there was enough originality that I was vested in the characters and truly interested in what happened to the Bennet sisters.
I really liked the narrator (whom I now know was the actress in the web series)
I loved how easily I became engaged in the characters and the world that Michelle created. I think her characters seem very "real" and I wanted to know more about the history of all of them and what had made them who they were. Some were hard to like, some are easier to like, but I think that's true about real people.
I am especially interested in the "Hidden City" and I hope we learn more about it in the future, it was more of just a tease in this novel.
Maybe Teller. He's not that prominent but I like what he represents.
A lot of moments in this book moved me. This story has a very visceral feel to it. It's hard to listen to sometimes, but it makes the characters more believable and gives them a lot of depth. In some ways Michelle's writing reminds me of George R. Martin, not afraid to go into the dark areas of life, showing how they shape a person.
I needed more of a "brain candy" book after this to lighten my mood, but I will use my next credit to get the next book in this series because I want to know what happens next.
I really like this series. My only problem with Robin Hobb's characters is that sometimes the time it takes for them to mature and stop being so childish seems a little too prolonged for me, but I guess that may be no different than reality. I like seeing them mature and grow, but...
However I really like the world that Robin Hobb has created and discovering it is definitely what keeps me coming back to this series and I am excited to find out what happens next.
If you liked Hunger Games you'll probably like this one.
The main character isn't as annoying as much as I found the main character in Hunger Games to be, but her naivete in the romance department was a little childish. Overall though following her through her discovery of her new faction was fun and I was definitely rooting her on.
I really liked the premise of the governments and their factions and how the revolution is unfolding, looking forward to the next book.
Nothing mindblowing, a little predictable but definitely grabs your attention and keeps you entertained and wondering where the ride goes next.
I liked this book. It's the first time I've read Orson Scott Card.
I am not a huge fan of the narrator. I speed it up to 1.5 and it's better, but he's just not my favorite (although I must be in the minority) he's too slow for me.
The main character can sometimes be quite juvenile, but as he is a juvenile it doesn't detract from the story too much. I liked how it was fast paced and incorporated modern day into his fantasy world in a fun fashion.
Very interested to see where this goes next.
