If any book in the Black Company series can drive a fan to quit, it is this one. The constant, disjointed, mind numbing jumps between perspective time periods turns this book into some bastardized choose-your-own-adventure story. Take a regular novel, chop it into a dozen or two pieces, then read those pieces in random order and you've got Bleak Seasons.
The narrator does such a fine job with the voices, I almost pity the man for having to read this assault on listeners minds.
The style of presentation in Bleak Seasons is so dreadful and of no narrative relation to its predecessors that one has to wonder if Glen Cook were in a particularly vile mood when he wrote it and was purposefully trying to kill the series.
I'm just writing to go against that other review of the guy hating the book and making him stop reading the series.
The narrator is great. The timeline in the story is set up strangely. But not too hard to follow and anything would be better than the book of lady.
