I’ve been listening to the audio book in the car, and I have to start off with what many people over on Audible have said — it was really, really hard to warm up to this book just because the person reading this one was not the same person who read the first two books. When you get used to a person’s voice, his pronunciation and the way he does different voices, to have a book start off not only with brand new characters but with a narrator who is completely different, doesn’t do the same voices, and doesn’t even pronounce many of the names the same way….? Very difficult to get into. In fact, I was probably about ten hours into the book before I started to enjoy it. None of that, of course, is a reflection of the author, who is brilliant.
It seems that a lot happened “off camera” in this book. Events, deaths, main characters we never even got to… And overall, bad things happen to good people, bad people make shockingly good choices, and rocks fall and people die.
I can’t wait to get to the next book.
