Disclaimer, I do not typically listen to the classics, this and The Count of Monte Cristo are the only real classics I have listened to.
Given my background I really struggled getting through this entire book. There were times in the book where Dostoevsky would introduce a meaningful thought or axiom about life in general outside of Russia, but these were few and far between. The book lacked continuity and a clear line of progression. I regret picking this book up on a whim.
This book was amazing, I really enjoyed the crap out of it. I think I re listened to the first hour about 10 times. Ben Aaronovitch kills with his edgy, bloody brilliant British humor. Kobna's reading of the book complimented the humor and drama perfectly, he did an amazing job. This is the perfect combination of writer/narrator since Butcher/Marsters.
The only reason the story got 4/5 is because the story slowed at parts, other then that, this was an overall awesome experience fully deserving 5 stars.
Second time listening to this book, Michael Page is the perfect compliment to Joe Abercrombie's humor. Michael Page adds the class to the humor to Joe Abercromibie's writing, I waffle back and forth between my favorite book/narrator combo and these two are definitely in contention for number 1.
Great crime story, if you like Kramer you will like this Sanderson story. It is great!
