    "Beautiful"

    Perfect narration, exciting story, heart-rending tragedy... couldn't recommend more. One of (if not the) best fantasy books I've ever had the pleasure of reading (listening).

    "All heresy, no action"

    For every section of the book where something actually happens, then are 3 sections where characters just sit around talking about what happened. I wish Mr. Kay had just cut about 60% of the dialogue and instead wrote a few more action sequences or at least character confrontations. And the "Mud-people"? Really?
    I hung on for way too long, got about 2/3 of the way through, but just couldn't deal with all the characters pining for long lost Tigana. Now, if the author had actually written the story about the fall of Tigana, now that might have been worth reading.

    "Absolute perfection"

    I loved everything about this book. Kay is one of the best writers around, in any genre. I will listen to this one again and again.

    "No Idea"

    I don't know if it was the writing or the choice of speaker, but I found myself daydreaming whenever I played this book. Realized I was on the second section and had no idea what was going on and stopped.

    "I can't get into this audiobook!"
    What would have made Tigana better?

    The names, places and settings are confusing.


    Any additional comments?

    I just couldn't get into this audiobook. I listen to books via my iphone, when I'm in the car or relaxing at home. I tried about seven times to get through the first part, thinking once I got further into the audiobook I might actually get interested. Unfortunately each time I tried, I ended up either falling asleep or calling someone because I couldn't take it any longer. I just got bored with the story and its slow pace. I guess I'm gonna keep trying but I doubt it'll be any time soon

    "Good, but long"

    I truly believe this was a well-crafted novel. The characters, plot and reading are incredible. However, I think it was also too long and could have probably been condensed somewhat.

    "Sigh"

    This is the hardest book to get into. I would rather listen to War and Peace.

    "HUGE WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!"

    The author of this book must be horribly disturbed. The entire book is one large incest ridden orgie! Obviously his little head wrote this book. Awful, horrble, sick. Not to mention that the story line is dry and rather boring, I kept finding my mind wondering while listening to this book. I am not even going to bother finishing the horrible thing. Don't bother, you will regret it!
