Rough beginning for narrator

For the first 5 or so hours I was zoning out or lost. No matter the situation the narrator sounded like he was narrating a water buffalo wandering around in some national geographic show with no emotion. The voices all sounded the same I couldn't tell who was talking. I ended up stopping for the day and when I started it again he seemed to get a better rythem although I did find myself zoning out occasionally.

Fulgrim is a must read

An epic tragedy detailing the fall to chaos of Fulgrim of the Emperor's Children.
The book takes a dive into the mind of the Primarch while he slowly loses himself to decay.

Excellent written and acted 5/5

Not my favorite, but maybe the best of the Horus Heresy.

I don't like the emperor's children or many of their characters to begin with, and this book made me dislike them more. They were prancing dandies shouting perfection perfection etc.

But! This book embraced all those annoying, offsetting, decadent, and offensive traits to make the reader hate then more and more as the book goes on. The imagery is truly top tier and while I don't like the focus of the book, it rivals Eisenhorn and Gaunt in quality. A must read if you are going through the Horus Heresy. It ties the last two books together neatly while telling its own descent into madness. And much less Lucius than the last three books. I hate that guy lol.
And David Timson did a great job too, characters were easy to tell apart.

Descent into madness

Fulgrim is a little different from most Heresy books in that its as much a horror story as it is a tragedy. Sometimes psychological, sometimes downright uncomfortable it's a far cry from the relatively straightforward morality of 40k novels. Mostly Fulgrim is the slow-burning tale of a cultured, urbane man of great learning whose love of perfection proves to be not only his own undoing but that of his Legion.

The book is quite a long one, allowing the reader to savour the full measure of the tragedy. McNeill has given the stories the full depth and context needed to follow the corruption of the Legion as a whole rather than relying on clumsy shortcuts. There's a few nods to King's Needful Things and some parts of False Gods find their way into the canvas but as a whole Fulgrim is as vast, decadent and ultimately disturbing as the artworks of the Primarch himself.

David Timson as narrator is an excellent choice. Here his tones work perfectly, capturing the honeyed, menacing tones of the Primarch and the arrogance of his Astartes. Fulgrim sounds like Edward Fox and Vespasian - Jack Hawkins. Nobody else could have pulled that off

Very enjoyable

very enjoyable, showing the slow fall of the emperors children and their primarch fulgrim.
The book actually managed to humanise one of the most debauched chaos factions in the 40k universe, making you care about their origin story and eventual fall from grace.
