"A remarkable first novel." (The Nation)
The reading of the book could not keep my interest. The reader's voice was too detracting from the story, and his character voices just didn't seem to match the characters.
I was disappointed in the book because the battles that I believed should have been described more in depth were not. I felt that there could have been more opportunity to weave a better plot into the entire book.
