What made the experience of listening to Six of Crows the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the world that the story takes place. Great characters, abilities and scene setting.

The production quality was excellent. Often having different narrators reading can be distracting but they did an excellent job with this story.

After political upheaval, economic collapse, and environmental disaster, the world has become a hotspot, boiling over into chaos of near apocalyptic proportions. In this perpetual state of emergency, all that separates order from anarchy is the military might of a United States, determined to keep peace among nations waging a free-for-all battle for survival and supremacy.

The Mechanics and the Mages have been bitter rivals, agreeing only on the need to keep the world they rule from changing. But now a Storm approaches, one that could sweep away everything humans have built. Only one person has any chance of uniting enough of Dematr behind her to stop the Storm, but the Great Guilds and many others will stop at nothing to defeat her.

Any additional comments?

The music kills me. It randomly comes in for a few minutes then goes away. It's it's loud and distracting. It would be a 5 out of 5 if it didn't have the music.
