This must be one of the very few audiobooks that I simply cannot get into or finish. After a superb start it simply turns freakish (apologies to those..Show More » who enjoyed the book).
I've only read it part-way, but it seems the only 3 humans are the three teenagers who are there from the start. The rest are outlandish monsters I don't have enough interest to try and imagine. The living are under threat, the dead are under threat, and so is every being in higher, lower, or in-between zones. All constantly under threat. And its all so other-worldly that it feels like a chaos of confusion heading for decimation and destruction.
I love books about fantasy and magic, and have probably been thoroughly spoilt by Patrick Rothfuss' wonderfully and warmly human "The Name of the Wind" and its sequels. (Cant wait for the fourth book in the series!) But there's a difference between imagination and hallucination. I need some of what Sean Williams takes before I can digest this particular offering.
