I was thrilled to find this book available and so well spoken by Humphrey Bower. Truely exciting fantasy. It is a joy to be wrapped up in the language that Cornish has created, a wonderfully realised world. (Not long now till Book 3 is out, Huzzah!!)
Larry Correia has a wide knowledge of guns and he uses it at every opportunity. The conceit of the tale is amusing enough and the pop references are fun but I read the Hard Magic books first and really enjoyed them, so this title suffers by being the second sequence I have read by this author.
I was taken right from the start and enjoyed the various ways Oscar deals with the being a Hero. Grand narration.
I kept seeing one of the Hemsworth brothers as the Ajax. (Liam or Chris would be lovely) A wonderfully charming tale with the least amount of problems for the characters. Narrator does a good job.
Worth the purchase, interesting protagonist, bustles along at a decent clip. A few interesting insights into the effectiveness of profiling.
Used to the characters and the language used and enjoy being thrust into an age before we all became too Politically Correct. (The Australian ABC films do a grand job of bringing the stories to life.)
Charming story, narrated well. Enjoyed the detail the author used to paint the pictures inside Mr Mitty's head. Don't we all have a need for time to think?
All the details of the novels and how they tied into the historical information of the setting. Quite informative. Not a novel, but full of interesting tidbits.
I was a bit startled with some of the activities BD got up to but as the novellas progressed I started to care about this man and how his life was progressing, (not always the most appropriate word to describe his passing years), not a good man or a bad one, just one who loved his part of the world. A worthy listen.
I can't believe how much I wanted to listen to this, a true guilty pleasure, and grimace at myself for wanting to keep on with series. The trope of YA, the love triangle and all the angst it creates, how else will young people know what to do. ;)
I loved the philosophical political view presented and the ending is well done and true to the spirit of the characters. (I should have revisited the first two books before listening to this as it took me a little while to get back into the rhythm of it.)
