I really enjoy the historical fiction approach to the Arthurian legend, as opposed to magical realism. Whyte's writing is solid. I got the feeling at many points in the book that he was stretching things out MUCH longer than necessary. Maybe he was trying to make the book a certain length. It showed.Pariseau's character voices were very good but the odd, smug, flat, formal tone of his narration (aka Publius) really made it difficult for me to embrace Publius as a character. Also, I have yet to hear a male narrator do a female character voice in a way that is not obnoxious.
Obviously written with male readers in mind. Which is fine. But trim the fat!!!
Someone younger sounding.
Yes. It's obviously a story that is meant to be continued with future books (and it is).
Yes, it was worth listening to. Maybe not worth the audible credit because it was so short.
I think it may not have translated well to audio, even with Tina Fey narrating. Some things are meant to have a written impact.
Worth listening to, not worth the audible credit.
I was surprised to find I wasn't crazy about this book. It was actually somewhat dull.
