Loved this book and have approved of all the books in the series. I do not like the narrator at all. She does not change how she describes mundane issues with how she describes fights and battles. It is very hard to get excited about the book the first time through. Definitely would not use this narrator again. Will not seek out books read by her.
Paks sets out on an adventure and there is plenty in this book. This is completely different than the first book. My only complaint is the narrators choice for the elves. This is silly on my part, but they sound like the aliens in the "Galaxy Quest" movie and it grates on my nerves.
Wonderful story Paksenarrion courage and natural ability to just understand what needs to be done in the face of danger. I would love just a tiny pinch of that.
The First Law series by Joe Abercrombie they seem to have the same personalities the only difference is that our hero had a family and he is haunted by them but then he starts a new life with a lot of adventure. I would to read the las book though...........AUDIO WHERE IS IT!!!!
No I have not listened to any other of her book but I will make sure to look for it.
No I would not make a film they are always messed up and I can not beleave that any book writer would allow people to change anything just to make money. Look at Christopher Paolini's wonderful story they messed up his wonderful book with that so called movie and cut out the real story nothing made sense.
Read this book about 20 years ago and I loved it that and am happy to say I still love it today
I've been an avid reader since my college days. I've read over a thousand books and find that reading is the key to unlocking all worlds!!!
liked it much better than the first book, hated how it ended, not sure way authors do that, but such is life and of course onto the next book!!!
