Better editing of the original book.
The initial interplay between H and Wade in The Basement.
Lots of geeky references, occassional good chemistry between characters.
I'd like this book better if it weren't racially insensitive (tries very hard), transphobic, heteronormative, and subtly homophobic.
People looking for a shallow "exotic" adventure narrative.
No, just books by Guy Gavriel Kay. Under Heaven also displeased me, both in content and in narration, although it was much better written, but I was able to get through it and so I bought this. Big mistake. He has clearly improved over the course of his career.
Pretentious and overwrought. Also, if you don't have an English accent, don't fake one badly.
Disappointment. I only became angry after the lousy characterizations of female characters reached their apogee.
