Depressing story with a mellow ending

The performance was good, adapting voices to situations or persons. The story telling style is nice, but the story itself is too depressing for my taste. Even though you get sort of a happy ending, it’s gets then a bit too mellow ...

Fun story!

The title caught my attention, and it makes for a fun and entertaining read, mixing different themes (traditions, science fiction, Arithmancy, etc). Couldn’t stop listening it!

The story builds on the characters one by one. You know from the start that there is more there, but not the full story until the end... it’s a captivating mystery that you want to see unfold. Great performance by the narrator.

The story actually has very little of the historical background I was expecting, there is lots of drama, and odd erotic scenes in the middle of a otherwise very serious story on traditions etc. I found myself bound to finish and understand what would happen, but sometimes just felt odd and forced.

Slow start, but builds up

The first part is a bit slow, but afterwards the storyline builds up and catches your attention. I must say I expected something very different, but it is creative and unique...

I got the book expecting an easy and uplifting listen, but the story goes around very repetitive feeling and thoughts, and a bit too lovey-dovey for my taste. It got boring very quickly... On the positive side, the narrator is great!

Slow at first, but then...

Feels a little slow at the beginning, with a lot of info that doesn’t seem related to the case at first, but slowly builds up momentum and things start to connect... until it gets really exciting, and when you think you are at the end of the story, there is still more to come. Performance is great, although voices for all females and other males feels like the same intonation and accent...

The storyline is really different and exciting! So much so that I was expecting more from the ending... the story does grab your attention, and the performance is pretty good with different styles for the characters.

To be honest, I didn’t finish it... the negative thoughts and feeling were making me depressed!

I find Iain’s books it always an entertaining listen... starting completely lost worth the story unfolding in surprising ways, with lots of action! The narrator is also excellent, able to do different accents and highlight the nuances of people’s moods.
