Like all of his other books. Unreal. Period. Can not get enough, action, characters, philosophical depth, seriously these books are legendary.
I saved listening to this book for the gap that would come in between waiting for the malazan book to be released. The malazan book in its series that is. I thought it would be a sure fire win, something I had to like if not love. And I truly mean it when I say this it was one of the biggest surprise of my life and I'm not even a huge reader or listener there's just like every so often some books come out like the first law books or malazan or the books where the character has the blood song (honestly can't even remember the name). That I freaking love and cannot stop listening to. And I am so angry that Joe Abercrombie what young adult, but that being said I had to revert to the second book in his young adult series over this one. This book was so freaking boring I had no idea what was going on and like honestly was just terrible I'm just shocked. Seriously just so super surprised. Like I love rogues and thieves and knaves and assassins and that whole aspect of role-playing games and fantasy books and this book somehow managed to make them seem like accountants, I feel like I'm reading a book where all the characters are accountants. Just like the whole mentality and personality of a really organized accountant.
Just my two you know whats.
Like the first book a disappointment if your expecting anything like first law. Period. Let me just lay that out right now. People might say different because of bias or because of whatever, but from me to you sitting across from each other at a chuckie cheese I swear on my life just floating in the air and having this book enter my ear nostril tunnels it's ALRIGHT but dudebroman SOOOOOOOOO far from the first law series or heroes or red country or the other one.
Now that the elephant has been killed let me leave the room and say it's a bit better then the first one and was decent at holding me off until BOOK NINE MALAZAN WHICH JUST CAME OUT TIME TO QUIT MY JOB.
it's YA and you can tell, I was legit all jokes aside really mad really disgruntled in real life that he went to YA because his books truly brought me that much joy. But no wait I know what your going To say. I didn't become disgruntled when he went young adult I became disgruntled after I listened to his young adult books, this is my first experience with anything young adult. I looked it up and saw that it didn't have to be rated lower so I didn't care whatsoever, that is to say, I went into this book or at least its predecessor with full hopes high like I had zero apprehension I didn't thinkit would be any worse whatsoever except maybe more action if anything I was excited.
Then I listened. It's hard to tell that the authors are the same but it's just completely different dude it sucks, in my humble opinion.
But this one sucks less than the first and knowing what I was getting into took away the huge disappointment thing or at least the surprise of it.
I'd say it's still worth the credit have fun.
Oh and the narrators awesome. He does great that's all good and everything and really makes the story much more listenable.
Jesus thank god something new and not Sanderson why did joe ambercromb switch styles and do that YA P.o.s. Why aren't the rest of the malazan books available on audible yet ? Why must I wait for these rare gems while you all drone on about Robert Jordan's heinous description of clothes books?
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!
