Excellent story and excellent narration
This is an excellently written and gripping story that blends a perfect balance of darkness and adventure... the sort of book that would make a great David Fischer film.
Alex Wyndham does a fantastic job of translating this same balance into his narration. His gruff tone to start helps to foster the image of a darker and more sinister world for the audience but it evolves as the characters (and the listener's empathy with them) arc through the story.
He also doesn't intrude on the story like so many narrators do, allowing the narrative to take center stage rather than his narration.
