Much of the book is rivoting. Parts of the book are so horribly descriptive it is impossible to stop listening, or else it's absolutely necessary to stop listening and catch a breath and go back for more. Phew! Got through that part without ripping apart everything in sight.
But then, there are some long, too clever by half, dreary, weakly theatrical monologues where all I wanted to do was run the character through myself - just to have some silence. These do have an unpleasant effect on the overall enjoyment of the story.
I think, too, after hearing Steven Pacey's narration of the First Law trilogy, I was spoiled. It is such an outstanding narration; Michael Page just cannot match it.
