"...strong characterization, moral quandaries, mystery, and a whole lot of tense moments...the final sentence was truly a bittersweet moment." (SFSignal.com)
I was very into the first 3 so it was a bit of a disappointment to come to the last one that cost around triple the first 3 prices and not like it as much.
It started of so strangely that I kept thinking I missed something. Then I had to keep going back to relisten on other parts because it was a bit confusing. I found that I would zone out a lot because it seemed like he was going over the same things at times. This may have been my fault, just because I kept getting the characters confused in the last book.
Still I enjoyed listening.
I didn't time the story but it did not seem like it was as long as was stated in the book description which said it was 4 hours and something long.
