This is a great book, consistent with Robin Hobb's usual high standards! Of course, Anne Flosnik's narration only adds to the story - it seems to me that Hobb's and Flosnik's styles are perfectly suited to one another and combine to make Hobb's book even that much better.
I must disagree with the other reviewer - having read/listened to the first book in Brent Weeks' Night Angel Trilogy, I would NOT recommend it. Weeks does not possess the maturity as a writer and I kept getting the feeling that portions had been written by a 15-year old male. The first book in the trilogy was tolerable at best and I do not plan to read the other two. I feel like I wasted time reading the first one.
However, after finishing the second book in Hobb's The Rain Wilds Chronicles today, I feel a warm glow when I think about the progression of the characters from the first book and excitement as I look forward to the third installment!
I'm in love with this book! It was original, well-written, and the narrator was FANTASTIC! It has replaced the Wheel of Time books as my new favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy read and narrator Nick Podehl has replaced my former favorite Michael Kramer! WOW! Loved it! Am anxiously awaiting book two... :)
