From page one you are drawn in. The twist and turns in this second in the series makes it a more enthralling read than the first. The first was something of Ender Wiggins meets Mad Max. This was deeper emotionally and faster paced. If you enjoyed the First of the series you will love the second.
The premise of this book looked so promising! Chapter after chapter of really unhappy circumstances with out a true friend to be found! Really it gets tiring when there is not one happy minute in the book, not even in the end. Just terrible beings, doing terrible things. If the beings appear friendly or kind, it is only so they can get something out of the main character. Just not a happy book.
This was painful to listen too, but I kept listening thinking at some point it would get interesting. I was wrong. Mundane characters with mundane lives. Just so boring!!!!!!
True to Pratchett's gift for sly humor and Gaiman's gift of creating a tale that makes you feel good. Funny all the way through, engaging and just plain good.
While the premise is enticing and keeps you listening, the fact that there are no likeable characters and the majority of the characters are horrible people, makes the book was hard to slog through. Could have been so much better!
