I thought it would be a lot better I will be honest I did nit give it a chance past half way but the love crap between him and Eileen was way way to much, didn't care about jarl, just was really lame honestly and I had high hopes from the first. It got cheesier like when he saves the girl from the three thugs by just making parts of himself appear- that was so dumb. And then how he says it's going to draw attention from all over the world it just feels like the rumors from that would not at all do that, like just forced. I don't know I just really couldn't like this one no matter how much I tried.
I listened to this book multiple times. I seriously could just be dumb. I totally and wholeheartedly agree with that. But I just wanted a good idea of what Plato was about, and even though the subject matter is quite difficult to explain I feel that I should have at least been able to grasp something. But I just couldn't so if you're really smart get but if you are not or are not in the mood to paste things together and listen multiple times do not get
I have no idea people who are just really simple, like no negative connotation whatsoever and I bet the majority of people are smarter than me and I'm an idiot. But I just sit dumbfounded I don't know what to say this book was so boring so dumb so about nothing
Everything. This book sucks. If you like erikson rr martin Abercrombie steer clear
It's like Harry potter (which I loved) minus everything that makes Harry Potter good
Super annoying teenage voice
Extreme disappointment I thought it was going to be awesome
This is probably one of the worst books I've ever read, I sincerely mean this and have no reason to say so aside from the fact that it really was
Something very different from this something that has with the title says it does
If there had been powerful phrases for dealing with difficult people
I wish there were some phrases for dealing with difficult people powerful or weak or whatever just some
Simply doesn't make sense. The delay in machines picking up neural activity or whatever doesn't justify no free will. Author just says that it does says that it's that simple and then moves on. Makes the whole premise of the book kind of BS and weak. He quickly says it's because scans pick up this or whatever blah blah and that's why there's no free will but that point that he makes there doesn't make sense, he just moves on and speculates but that point that he moves on from is wrong.
Was hoping for a book with a few good debate tactics. This gets philosophical and nonsensical. You won't feel like you have anything to apply from this book in your next argument, it gives you nothing.
I like really really REALLY do not understand. I could not get one fourth into this book and it was the same with mistborn book one. I think Sanderson books are HEINOUS. WAY to much like WoT, that same no vulgarity-no swearing- fool headed boy ! Silly lummox girl! Wording.
Like just so cheesy and when the characters contemplate stuff like the son getting mad that the dad doesn't step up and smack all those who are disrespectful, it's so repetitive and boring.
His father was bla bla the most feared man who did this and this in the old kingdom, but he saw his father as weak and indecisive.
Fast forward a page.
He caught a glimpse of what the legends say his father was like.
FF half a page, the legends describe a man who would never let this person talk like that, his father should say something and stick up for whatever
FF a page, he was astounded and was going to tell his father stop being a coward (father cuts him off, saying no don't be foolhardy and hasty!)
FF a page, his father was disappointing him
FF a page, he wondered at why his father was doing this,
FF a page, his father was magnificent / slated the creature,
FF a page, he is furious his father let so and so talk crap about their methods and ideals.
Man these books are so boring !!
Abercrombie, Martin, erikson, Lawrence, cook, and other similar author-fans beware!
Like all of his other books. Unreal. Period. Can not get enough, action, characters, philosophical depth, seriously these books are legendary.
Kept me hooked for a few hours, idea of tattoos and runes and wards is cool but def could never get the sequel or continue with series in anyway. Didn't hate or dislike it at all just didn't create new interest or further interest in the slightest. Just didn't hit me.
I got this book because Steven erikson always talks about it in interviews. I burned through his audio books and don't know what to do with myself until reapers gale comes out. The black company was really good and I have never come across a situation like this, where one book series copies another (not at all in a bad way) to such a large extent. From barrows to the magic system it blew my mind how much Steven erikson use things from this book.
That being said, the Malazan books are way way better. The black company was unreal, please don't get me wrong, I am on the third or fourth audio book right now though and about to delete it with three hours left. It slowly failed more and more at giving me my Malazan fix.
So if your like me, desperate for anything like Steven erikson, the black company can hold you off for its duration with glee. The second book too. I wouldn't go past that though it just gets a bit boring. The Malazan books have got me like a school girl though fiend-ing for the D.
