Narration was almost robotic, but the content and interviews were fascinating. Overall worth the listen.

I really struggled to get into this, not because of the writing, but because of the ridiculous accents the narrator used throughout to distinguish between the characters. It's important for characters to be distinct, but for a nun in a medieval fantasy novel to have a drawling Southern American accent, another have an Australian accent, the next to have an English accent... it was really distracting and detracted from the story.

Couldn't finish it

Honestly not really worth it, I can appreciate it's importance in defining a certain sub-genre of fantasy, but I really didn't enjoy it. The plot is so choppy, the characters unrelatable, and the pacing awkward. I found myself zoning out then having to go back and re-listen to sections, and still not really getting what was going on.
