The reason I like any book is when the author let's me visualize another world and another time; this book does a great job of pulling you in and immersing you in the life of the main character. It's exciting and interesting but not always following the obvious plot of a hero story.
Well I'm not done yet, only 3/4, but while driving back on a 3 hour trip I was struck by goosebumps and tears so many times during Pax's plight to inform the Duke of the approaching enemy.
Pax, of course.
Well, maybe not 1 sitting as it is rather long, but it so good that I look forward to my next listen.
A reading or listening recommendation: Dragonflight (trilogy) by Anne McCraffrey. I'm reading this right now (when I'm not listening to Sheepfarmer's Daughter) and it almost seems as if these 2 stories are taking place in the same time but maybe at opposite ends of the world.
It is so amazingly good.
Hadrian (sp?) - he is just so whimsical and good.
Really I can't pick out 1 scene because I marvel that the whole book is so riveting.
Top 1 or 2.
Always captivating, never dry.
Depth of character - a good example is the way he reads Hadrian's (sp?) voice, it just makes the guy sound so much more authentic.
All parts are good.
The 1st book(s) in the series is also phenomenal.
Top 3. I also love Treasure Island and Sherlock Holmes.
Wow, too many to name. Sit back and let your imagination take in the amazing way the author portrays this "lost world." Their narrow escape is really cool but I don't want to say too much to give anything away.
They were all done with individual characteristics - very well done by the narrator. I might have a slight sweetness for the big burly captain.
I'll probably listen to this again in a year, it is really phenomenal.
Many have already said how great the story line is and also the narration so I'll simply say: buy it, listen and enjoy!
The boy and pirate - obviously.
