The story is compelling and fresh.
The story and the premise is refreshingly new.
The narrator is the worst I've ever heard. After listening to over 100 audible books, the narrator completely ruined to book. I will avoid this narrator in the future. All of her characters are spoken in a high pitched annoying voice. The whole book sounds like it was read by the characters of a Pokemon cartoon.
I would recommend this book but avoid this narrator in any future book.
Everything that happens to the main character is just too convenient. The characters have some development but could use more.
Joe Abercrombie's half a king and half a world is much more complex and the characters are more real. Good and evil is much more complicated in Abercrombie's books than in this series
I loved the character development. The misunderstood underdog gets the girl. Cal is the Everyman hero. We get to see the ugly underside of the hero business.
It had too much dialog but not much character development. The story just came together like a b-tv serial.
The performance was very good. Sorry that the story was poor
The main character was interesting but after the first hour, all that had happened was a meeting with the ship officers. The room and The table is Described in excruciating detail but not much happened. I had to listen at 3x to get through this he book.
This was a disappointment and not my kind of book. Try the killer victor the assassin series or the iron Druid series . Much better
Funny, Witty, Engrossing
The new character Owen Kennedy is hilarious!. He's a perfect old cantankerous teacher.
They are all great. I love this narrator.
This book really made me laugh. The lines are so funny. Where does he GET this stuff?
This was by far the funniest installment of the druid series.
The story was fresh but went into too much detail about every nuance of speech and body motion of each character in every dialog scene.The Narrator was awful. I have listened to almost 200 books and this guy was by far the worst. He put unnatural pauses in every sentence and emphasized the wrong words for effect. He paused after every 6-8 words, regardless of the flow of the sentences. It was almost like listening to the William Shatner Star Treck character over acting while reading the book.
I ended up listenning to the book at 3x speed and skipping many chapters to finish.
Get a different narrator. I'm avoiding this narrator from now on- no matter how much i like a book, this narrator will ruin it. I can't believe the producers of this audiobook allowed this to happen.
The book is O.K. Avoid this narrator.
The premise was completely new and out of this world.
His voices are great.
The beginning was hilarious! A device grafted in a diplomat's rectum to produce scent insults to an alien race is too funny!
Sandman slim kicks more ass! And does it with style. I love this series. The writing is gritty and the characters memorable.
There are no other characters like sandman slim.
There's a scene when he talks to God. It was so funny.
This book made me laugh!
I would start with the first book in the series then listen to the complete series. it is well worth it.
I have the whole series in print and bought the whole series in audible to read again. It was well worth it!
The character development was very nuanced. There are very memorable villains such as The Limper, Whisper, The hanged man, The Lady, Soul Catcher....
I would read a book Just about the Limper!
I had read the books before but the narration brought the characters to life.
Awesome! Got to read the whole series. OOOOOH! there are ten of them!
This series is one of my most favorite series of all time.
Very entertaining. I've never read a spy book like this. It very British and parodies the James Bond era type of characters.
The beginning of the book hooks you in. He describes how one would break an arm....
The Thomas Lange character was very good.
When Joseph asks him if he was a good man.
This was thoroughly an enjoyable read.
The audio version is amazing. Have not read the print version.
I loved Catskinner. The character was so different from most fantasy characters nowadays.
There are many great scenes. I liked the Bowling alley scene and when he finds out what Godiva is. Very unexpected.
This is different from any fantasy out there. I've read many in the last year. I just could not put this one down. The narrator is very good. I bought this book without any reviews and I am glad that I did.
