This is the best fantasy series I've ever read/heard. It is just as big and bold as Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series, but much easier to keep up with characters and what is going on in various locations. As others have mentioned, this is not a tale for children - it is very vulgar & very violent. But in my opinion it just makes the story more realistic. I have listened to the first three stories in this saga, and don't have any real problem with the reader. I can understand him fine, and he does a decent job with the different character voices. 5 stars for this audiobook and the series as a whole (so far anyway!).
I wish I had researched this book just a little bit before impulse buying it - then I would not have bought it at all. Part way through listening, something just wasn't sitting well with me in the way the author was treating some of 13 topics. Some things just didn't sound right to me, or like the author must be veering away from mainstream science into fringe ideas. Then with the section on homeopathy came the realization that I couldn't trust anything in the book. Homeopathy is pure bunk, with zero possible way it could ever work, period. In my opinion, it seems that at least some of these topics were made to seem more mysterious than they do in real life through the selective omission of relevant data. Data which would have shown that the topics make more sense than would have justified having them in a book with this title; or even show them to be patently false as with homeopathy. A few of the topics I enjoyed, but by the end the author had simply lost my trust in what he was saying.
You want a fun show to listen to while passing some time? Car Talk is it. Even if you aren't interested in cars or car repair, this entertaining show is sure make you laugh. You'll want more. Keep up the great work guys!
