I have not read the print book, however, I liked the audio edition very much.
It is somewhat comparable to Drinking: A love story, in it's discussion of the difficulty of dealing with addiction; or to Breaking NIght, in it's discussion of the difficulties of being a child of poverty. But it is it's own story, with discussion of aspects of race, cultural differences, and the impact of a steady diet of broken promises.
As with most story tellers, the author's use of description and character development helps you feel you are there where the story is unfolding.
I liked the narrator. I found their reading style easy to listen to, with good intonation and inflection.
Good book, I liked it very much
Can't say, I only listened to the book, and have not read the print version.
It is similar to many other fantasy/adventure books such as books by Terry Goodkind.
I thought she did a good job of differentiating characters. I liked her use of inflection and the cadence of her voice. She is easy to listen to, and does not distract the listener from the story.
It's a good book. Not earth shattering, or the next Trilogy of Middle Earth, but interesting and enjoyable. I liked it enough to listen to the 2nd in the series now.
The major thing I would like to change is the ridiculous horns that sound in the middle of the storyline. They seldom seem to have anything to do with the plot, and add nothing to the rendition of the story. The book would be better without them.
I believe the book is well written, and descriptions are rich and full.
I like the intertwining of plots
The main narrator, Susan Duerden, reads every sentence as if it is the height of suspension. In the suspensful parts of the book this works well. Unfortunately, it is not possible to remain at the very edge of cliff the entire tale.I found the voice inflection grated on me. With this in mind, I found it difficult to get through the book.
"May I have some water?" asked the deathless man.
