Had someone such as Simon Vance, Michael Page or Roy Dotrice narrated this book, it would probably make this book better than a dud.
I'm running out of choices in the Epic Fantasy genre.
Overly dramatic. Very dry. The guy sounds like a narrator for a 1950's educational film for high school students. His style almost reminds me of William Shatner.
The author and narrator.
From the reviews, I thought there would be witty banter between the main character and his sidekick, but it was pale compared to the characters in Michael J. Sullivan';s books. I was expecting some exciting combat, but compared to Joe Abercrombie, the scenes are lame. Rothfus, Jordan, Abercrombie, Martin, Sullivan and Lynch are unbeatable in this genre. I suppose the positive reviews were from younger, easier to please readers.
