One of my favorite books ever, read and performed by some of my favorite people. I do think you have to read or listen to an unabridged version first to fully appreciate the story but this was very entertaining.
Pretty enjoyable. I liked that you could listen to any chapter out of order and look for all the hints connecting each story to the other.
This did not feel like 22 hours at all. In fact, I was a little sad when I finished. I was always fascinated with the Tudor era so this book feels like candy. It is almost too indulgent-- I gobbled it so fast.
At this point, I think it's a safe bet that I will enjoy anything read by Steven Pacey. And I honestly think Joe Abercrombie gets better with every book. Very very addictive.
I can't think of a better way to enjoy this dark fantasy novel. Joe Abercrombie is amazing and Steven Pacey is the perfect voice for this fantastic tale. Just pure genius!
I had never read the printed version of the book so I didn't really know what to expect from the audio version. Now I'm glad that I listened to the audiobook first because I absolutely loved this reading by Anne Hathaway. It was so much fun! She went all out with different voices for the different characters and it felt almost like theatre in my head.
The story is also a timeless classic for good reason. If you enjoyed the movie, the book offers a darker side to the tale and is definitely worth looking into.
