Savage!

The author uses the word savage a bit too often, but it is a fun, light hearted and energetic tribute to the DnD stories of old. If you grew up playing advanced dungeons and dragons or even second edition set in the world of grey hawk this will be an excellent listen!

Frivolous fun

If you like the old school world of Greyhawk setting from dungeons and dragons with a large dollop of humor you’ll like this book. The voices are good for the most part, but at times are a little over the top. Still, a good, fun light listen!

Amazing story and excellent performance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Excellent story, excellent setting and amazing performance.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lies of Locke Lamora?

The scenes with the Bondsmage were all well described and engaging.

Which character – as performed by Michael Page – was your favorite?

Chains.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but that should not dissuade you. I was eager to listen again at each opportunity.

Great except for the final fight...

I always enjoy the Monster Hunter stories. The only critique I have is that the resolution to the problem presented always seems underwhelming. The characters are well done, the fights are well written and the stories are engaging but the final fight/conflict just feels rushed or just 'because they are good guys of course they will win'.

Still a great listen and well worth the time and money!

This might be a book for you. Lots of profanity that mostly seemed to be used for no good reason and low brow jokes about bodily functions. The characters were shallow and rather forgettable. The narration was ok but it seemed all the characters ended every sentence with an exclamation mark as read.

I have played these sorts of games for years. I think I am part of the target audience. The low brow humor did make me chuckle a few times but it grew repetitive and dull after a while. The need to explain how game mechanics worked for the benefit of those in the audience who never played was tolerable but again it grew tiresome.

All in all it has its market and it would very likely appeal to adolescents but it is a one trick pony.

if you were underwhelmed with Storm Front or Fool Moon, don't give up! this book is where the writing and story really improve and the setting finally starts to feel like a lived in world. a great starting point for the series!
