Great fantasy book, but not very well narrated

Read at an awkward pace with fits and starts for breathing like he's trying to rush it. The story itself is amazing if you can get past the narration!

Snore

This book starts off a bit slow but with great potential and then............ Snooze. This may be one of the most boring books I've ever read. The author goes into ad nauseum of the main characters time as a monk. It's terrible, even the relationship stuff is Sooo weak and fails to hold you. I skipped three chapters hoping something new would arise and realized main character was still at monastery.

Audiobook is abridged...

I am now at chapter 24 in the Kindle book but that equates to chapter 18 in the audiobook. For some reason the audiobook has about seven or eight chapters cut out as best I can tell. This should not be advertised as unabridged when it is obviously a bridge.

Nope

This story drags and drags. Nothing happens for huge stretches. I listened to 10 hours on a road trip and kept waiting for it to get exciting. It doesn't. So much foreshadowing for no payoff. Admittedly I did not finish.

Also the narrator gave our hero an annoying voice. Like he was some snot nosed punk. I ended up hating him, and despising his best friend who comes across as the dullest piece of idiotic trash in the universe.

Generic

Nothing distinguishes this book from a thousand other coming of age stories except the remarkable creepiness of a supposedly 13 year old protagonist going on about how young and tight his crush's body is.
