Abercrombie has twisted hero's, this book is dark, almost biblical violence and epic battles.
He maintains continuity of the characters, some stories I have listened to, the prefomers have changed the voices. Pacey uses the same voice for each person from start of the first book till the last chapter in the last book. Amazing!,.
I listened to this series over a period of two weeks. Very violent and dark, too much at once, I think I will take a little break from Abercrombie before I go back to the mud.
I will listen to " The magician's land " agian. I have this trilogy on cd and in my Audible library . Mark Bramhall does a great job bringing this book to life.
I have never read the Harry Potter books but have heard this series of books compared to them as the " adult version" of Harry Potter.
This book moves fast, could easily been thirty hours long, I would love to have read the unedited version. I think one of my favorite scenes was Alice's meltdown and recovery.
A two day listen on the road, great entertainment. Love the book and the series...worth a credit.
Great series but felt the last book was a quick wrap up. I wished it was longer, seemed to be rushed and left me wanting the story to continue. Nobody writes like Grossman, his style stands alone and Mark Bramhall's performance is perfectl.
Worth a credit
I think Abercrombie could be compared to Sanderson, Rothfuss, Simmons, Jordan.......
I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job. He brings the book to life, adds to the story, is not a distraction. Great job!!!
It is funny and sad, dark....I would not make it in Abercrombie's world.
Great book, happy to add this series to my collection. Well worth a credit.
This is the third book in the Monster Hunter series, very entertaining, great story .
Oliver Wyman's performance is great, he is an asset to this story.
if your a Jim Butcher fan and you have ran out of Dresden files books to read. This series is a good substitute, and just as entertaining as any I have listened to recently.
Intellengent, well written
this book has a different look to the future of mankind. I think I could compare it to some of A C Clark's concepts altought the writing style is better and modern.
Great accents, complimented the book...
I was pleasantly surprised that this book set in Africa, it was good to read a book with an international setting.
I read this book when it came out, liked it better than the audio version.
this is a dark and violent book, clever and fun and dark and sad.
i didn't care for this performance, I don't think he matched this book's dark and tortured content.
yes, read thru these books quickly, took about two days to listen to it.
this plot is done over and over, young man's rise to power despite his tragic childhood. bloody and violent content. I like it when I first read the book but didn't enjoy the audible version.
Best Reacher yet.
Book eighteen and still we see old Reacher developing and he might just settle down. Turn into a regular person, get a job and a family, work for a living....not going to happen.
Dick Hill performance is great as usual.
Reacher almost struggles with his humanity, just when you think Reacher might consider being normal he doesn't disappoint.
I haven't listened to all of this series, but this has been the best so far ...
I love the epic long books, when they are well written you feel like you get your credits worth.
Great story, something new and fresh.
Yes have listened to both Kate Reading and Michael Kramer before, they both preform as usual. It helps that the book is part of a great series.
Great book, from cover to cover, well worth the credit....
I would compare this book with Dune, to Hyperion, the Hobbit. Although different from these books they take you on a journey, a quest. These types of books keep you interested, and give your mind something new and fresh.
Kvoth, he is flawed, vaine, smart, stupid, proud... Human.
A great listen, and read, I am planning to buy this book just to add it to my small collection. Well worth a credit, can't wait for the next in the series.
well written and researched, great story, from the first chapter till the last.
Yes, knowing nothing of Ernest Hemmingway's life, it was an educational and interesting story. while some was obvious speculation on Simmon's part. You the listener could believe such a great story was possible.Loved the book, was not disappointed, listened to it twice...
well worth a credit
