I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
I would recommend this to anyone who loves short stories with rogue heroes and fans of authors such as George R R Martin and Patrick Rothfuss.
With so many wonderful authors and narrators this is an excellent collection of stories. It contains a wonderful story from Patrick Rothfuss and an extract from George R R Martin's upcoming The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and The Game of Thrones.
This is an anthology. I can't believe Audible puts this out without listing chapters. If you lose your place or want to jump back or forward you have to scrub the time bar or tap the 30 second refresh. It's absurd to put out a 30 hr collection of short stories and dump it onto your device without a way to navigate through the book shame on you!
I have no idea. I haven't read it.
I really liked the story about Amaryl, the Duchess Unseen.
I just think his mention makes you more likely to buy it.
No. Too long, and short story format.
It was well worth it. Even after the road trip, I am still listening.
martin and Abercrombie are predictably good, and Rothfuss is predictably mediocre I really don't get why he is so popular.
its a treat to hear roy dotrice read anything ,(neal gaiman should be read by him exclusively imo) and there is thankfully only a little scott brick you can get through it but really the only great story is martins .
as always please help stop scott brick and john lee ruining good stories by reading them aloud.
"Some of my favourites"
This has three amazing short stories from my favorite authors - Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss and Mr Martin himself.
All three of those are stories that expand upon those that I've been waiting for a sequel for: Neverwhere, The Kingkiller Chronicles and The Song of Ice and Fire
The final story has a much better narrator than George's other works. Personally I don't take to short stories that much, but the quality of these makes up for it.
