I'm a big fantasy book reader / listener, but this one was difficult. After 3 or 4 attempts of chapter one, I realised that it was the style of langua..Show More »ge that was causing the problems. It was very difficult to get into and to follow. Once I'd got into the style of the text, I started to enjoy the book, but lost it near the end. I have just finished listening to it, I can tell you the basic story, but there where far too many complicated characters to follow. I turned it off near the end as I had completely lost interest and the plot. Sad. Didn't like the use of swearing all through the book either, it didn't seem to be needed. Maybe if I listen again I will get it better, but to be honest, I have no real feeling to want to go back to it.
