This book can be a little confusing some times, as the time line slips back and forth in small parts between past and present. But I found this book to be a great listen. I loved the characters, and Yes to the other gentleman, Wetboys can be a hard title to swallow, for a deadly assassin, but that is part of what makes a story and its author unique. Wetboy is a title unique to Brent Weeks stories and thus he makes his book his own.
I would also like to supply the definition of the word Spartan that so irritated that same reviewer.
1.Of or relating to Sparta or its people.
a.Rigorously self-disciplined or self-restrained.
b.Simple, frugal, or austere: a Spartan diet; a spartan lifestyle.
c.Marked by brevity of speech; laconic.
d.Courageous in the face of pain, danger, or adversity
Perhapes before slandering a persons choice of words, you should yourself do a little research.
The reader only used a few changes of tone to seperate different characters, but the author provides enough clarity that it doesn't confuse the listener.
all in all 5 of 5 stars, and I hope to see more stories from Mr. Weeks.
