The first book was a solid military tale with an interesting twist. The follow up is widely criticised for being wide of the mark in the qualities that made Blood Song good, and I have to agree. Beyond that, the narration lacks entirely in characterisation, the voice artist giving no variety of tone or accent to the wide cast of characters - at times I had no idea who was speaking in any given conversation. Overall, a C at best.

Pretty good overall, had some dialogue issues with the narrator not giving enough differentiation between characters at times.

Best narration I've come across in an audiobook to date. Excellent story, Rothfuss ignores many plot conventions and, although sometimes it feels meandering and aimless, it is thoroughly engaging.
