I'm a huge fan of Steven Erikson and his mythic, Malazan, decalogy so, naturally, an appointment with Forge of Darkness was on my calendar. His twisting depths of narrative never cease to enthral, and this is no exception. I am an avid reader but thoroughly enjoy the freedom an audiobook can grant.
Wonderful detail, the intricate unfolding of character relationships, with the customary amount of humour, and the beautiful mythic, overall plot. What is not to like?
Well, there is the matter of the continuity and correct pronunciation of names from the previous books, which does seem careless given the amount of loving fans who surely will have noticed this. It would be well worth while obtaining a list of correct pronunciations from Erikson himself to finally end the confusion amongst the different narrators of his works.
