Much fighting, little culture

I thoroughly enjoy when historical fiction makes me feel as though I'm right there with the characters. To me takes a level of dedication to describing everyday activities and setting a wider context. This book does not do that in my opinion.
It is a story of fights and the struggle to find a way in life.
I just could not relate to, nor understand, the desicions of the main character. Thus, I was left with a lot of war scenes interspersed with confusing choices.

A comprehensive introduction

Listening this through, a lot of concepts and thinking patterns just clicked into place. This serves as a well thought-out guide for starting or continuing down (or, more aptly: up) the path of becoming and being a skeptic thinker and communicator.
Many thanks to steven and his team, from Tai in Copenhagen

I really enjoyed this story, it made for a great listen. My only critique would be that it is pretty predictable and that not too much hardship is in our protagonist's way. But I also like it a bit extreme in that regard, so for you that might not be a bother.

Creative as hell, and superb performance!

A page turner. Went through it from cover to cover. Im usually not that big on sci-fi, but this book has me convinced. Now, off to get the sequel!

Amazing performance

Complex, surprising and exhilarating story. Only shadowed by the performance of the two narrators, who do the best job of bringing the characters to life I've yet experienced.

The narrator is great as always, but the story is so uneventful and predictable that I considered returning the book. Book 1 and 2 were new and exciting. By book 3 the basics are in place, and I was hoping for the writer to expand on his ideas. With the ability to manipulate space and time, there seems no end to potential. All it amounts to, however, is the wizards creating one mundane problem, and then spending the entire book solving that problem in unexciting ways. Bahh...

Superb in writing and performance

There is a reason this is a classic. So many levels in the story, and a dynamic language which never bores.
And the narrator does a fantastic job bringing the story to life!

Dont know what it is...

I love parts of the book, when I get involved with strong feelings towards the charcters and events of the story. I just dont think that happens quite enough.
Not quite enough is what I think about much of this and the other Farseer books. I dont quite see it, dont quite feel it, dont quite love it.

And yet I want to read on.

I really love reading about the ways and wonders of our ancient ancestors. And that, along with the nuggets of great plot-weaving found every now and again, kept me going until the end.
I just have 2 main concerns:
1: The plot NEVER TWISTS in a surprising way, which is something im a big sucker for
2: This book (as the previous) has the LONGEST SEX SCENES ever to be put in a book not written by Danielle Steel. Im a man, and as such I feel like those parts of the book are not intended for me.
For now, Im gonna leave Auel on shelf and go for less fictional accounts of that era.
