Addictive, beautiful and satisfying. Brian McClellan is a truly excellent writer and the perfect example of a student outperforming the teacher (Brian was a student of Brandon Sanderson).

Not an easy book to get through, and the story is a mess of a thing, but it has some truly riveting and insightful moments. Difficult to recommend.

Reads less like a story and more like an imagined history, albeit a repetitive one. An interesting vision of the universe.

A top story but the recording is showing its age

As with most of Terry Pratchett's story, it's a cracker of a tale. Unfortunately the reader can be a bit difficult to hear at times and the recording is showing its age.

Or the context. Either way, I didn't really enjoy it all that much (aside from a few moments of black humour).

Strong characters, and rich world building for a first person narrative, reminiscent of Robbin Hobbs Assassin series.

But an amazing tale once you let it sweep you up. Excellent, rich voice acting.

The story was quite average (think Xmen meets Mary poppins) and the voice actor had difficulty performing British accents (which was pretty much everyone but the protagonist).

Definitely a love letter to the geek culture of the 80s. Will Wheaton was underwhelming as the voice actor (you can barely tell the difference between characters) which was a big let down.

Excellent book, the reading performance was pretty bad, but you get used to it after a while.
