Will Wiles seems like an exceptional writer, if only he had used those skills to write about something of interest.
I'd love to read a mystery or thriller written by him - something with some content to sink my teeth into.
Michael Page did an excellent job narrating, but it seems like his skills were entirely wasted on this story.
Not sure I would cut characters, but I would have explored the main characters dark side in my more depth.
If I hadn't been traveling and unable to shop for another audiobook, I never would have completed this one. About hal-way through, the book did get a little more interesting, I think that the author could have done a lot more and made this an amazing murder mystery.
Awesome book. Maybe the best books I've listened to all year. I was pleasantly surprised at both the quality of the writing and the near-perfect match of a narrator. Choosing this book was a complete shot in the dark, and I feel like I really lucked out.
I found myself completely engrossed in the story and loving all the current-day references to companies and technology woven into the fantasy. I'd love to read more my Robin Sloan - he has a whimsical and engaging style of writing that I found entirely refreshing and fun.
This is one of the best books I've read (or heard) in quite a long time. Between the brilliant story-line and Robin Sachs' wonderful narration, this audio book offered an incredibly engaging and sensually rich experience. As soon as I finished the story, I began searching for more books on Audible by Glen Duncan, but, alas, this was the only one. I may have to actually pick up a paperback to get another juicy dose of Glen's writing.
I've been a fan of Seth Godin for a number of years now, and I'd have to say that this is by far his best book yet. I wish everyone would read this book -- especially every person who has anything to do with shaping our education system in this country. Everyone who runs for office, or already holds a government post, should have to read and comment on this book. You want to know why our economy is in the toilet -- and will continue to be so unless we radically change our way of thinking -- READ THIS BOOK!!!
