Removal of the 20 hours of wordy filler.
Told an actual story.
More excellent voice characterization.
Boredom. Really hard to keep paying attention to characters who like to hear themselves talk but say nothing.
Far less useless 30,000 word monologues.
Sure, as long as the device I'm listening on has a fast forward.
Excellent voice characterization work.
The craptastic climax
The last two books. It's like reading a country song which goes on and on. Utterly disappointing protagonist with the IQ of a mouse. Hobb seems to enjoy ignoring obvious questions a person would ask so he can insert a couple more hours of at the expense of the main character. We spend three books listening to this guy get raked over the coals and his payback is wrapped up in two minutes. Author's conclusions about relationships is a bit out there as well, Hobb really needs a psychiatrist.
Excellent performance overall. Absolutely amazed he didn't cut his own wrists reading this trilogy.
It's an overall good story. This one in particular is very fast paced, action in just about every chapter without going too in depth into techno babble. Just enough to paint the picture and move on.
The narrating is absolutely superb across all three books. Hopefully, Boyett comes back for #4.
Kyle Riggs, of course. Nobody in this series lives long enough to go too in depth with. But, it's a 1st person story telling so just the nature of the beast.
Not sure there really is a favorite here. One stands out but strikes me as an author just deciding to take his main character on a death defiance trip for cheers.
Star Force Marines, life expectancy: thirty seconds.
