This book and the two sequels are absolutely great! I listen to a bunch of audiobooks, and this series is among the best I have heard.
This was great. It kept my attention. The author didn't waste time describing pointless things and made the story flow.
This book is amazing, as are the two sequels. Not only is the story worth listening to, the performance of the author is excellent. He gives different inflections and accents to his different characters, does so well, and reads clearly. He also gets right to the story right off the bat of each episode, not wasting any time with pomp and circumstance. I'd definitely recommend it, and, to the author, BRAVO!
