I loved the characterization of each person, the plots with it's twists and turns, and the intelligence with which it was rendered.
The plot was intriguing because many different facets of the mystery were exposed amidst the sub plots which included the personal lives of the main characters.
Each character had a different voice and it was easy to tell who was speaking even without the written clues. There was no difficulty understanding the ends of sentences like other novels I have listened to and despite the unfamiliar accents I could understand every word. The orator definitely brings a level of excitement and authenticity to the story, as if you are living inside it.
This would have to be #1 because of it's unusual subject matter, the absorbing manner in which is was written and the driving plot.
Hobie was my favorite character. In the midst of chaos, sadness, and uncertainty, he was always loving, caring, and stalwart.
There were so many terrific scenes but I would have to pick the one where Theo is in the hotel room ill, confused, and contemplating suicide and his sudden revelation which led to his decision to change the way he perceived his life.
There is action for the plot junkies, philosophy for the thinkers, colorful characters for the romantics, and vivid descriptions for the poets, enabling one to have an all absorbing,unforgettable experience
I enjoyed feeling like I was back in Medieval times and how the author described the complexities of the relationships between the different "creatures." It was interesting to see how the plot unraveled and it constantly kept my attention. I am looking forward to the final book.
Story was fun and a good escape from reality.
I loved when Riyria met the monk and later found out they displaced him for the night to a totally burned out building.
