Ok , I thought this was the second Godfather. It obviously isn't. The narrator talks so fast I could hardly keep up. Just a very frustrating audiobook.
Maybe a better narrator. Maybe not.
Just finished listening to all of Brandon Sanderson books and this series was recommended based on the other books. This sounded like a bad western. I just couldn't get past the narration and the accents to enjoy the book. Too bad. I was looking forward to a long series to listen to.
Scott Harrison - definitely not. His voice was grating and he hollered a lot to get his point across. It was almost painful to listen to.
He would have to have a different narrator.
He sounded like he was reading to children. He shouldn't try to read anything else.
I love the time period that the book was written about. That's about it.
I read a lot of this genre and this book was just plain boring.
I had a hard time getting into this book. Maybe, for me anyway, this would be better if I had read it instead of listened to it. Things were hard to visualize and I found myself wandering and looking for things to do while I was listening, and I don't normally do that.
I thought Simon Vance was very good. He brought a lot to the characters. He just didn't have a decent story to work with.
Not that I can think of.
After reading nothing but great reviews for this series, and loving this period, I bought both books. I thought they were both so boring that I was having a hard time staying attentive. And then the endings were just there. Not the least bit satisfying. Sorry, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
