I have always enjoyed reading these books and this is the first audio one I've had in the series. I gave up on it. It was going nowhere at all. Too much detail about irrelevant situations and going off on tangents that didn't help the so called story line.

Very puzzling

I found this book very difficult to reach the end. It had few memorable features and because of this it was hard to pick up the story on my next listen, I kept on having to go back . There were so many questions that were unanswered. A frustrating book. that I personally didn't enjoy.

Tedious

A struggle to listen to. Too many characters doing too many things that made the story complicated and long.

I found this story difficult to keep track on. The narration was excellent and that kept me going till the end. The characters annoyed me which didn't help my enjoyment. I would not recommend this book.

This is a story that will stay with me for a long, long time. Beautifully written and narrated. I cried at many parts of the story, something that rarely happens . I was there in the marshland, swamps and lagoons. I felt the isolation, sadness, anger and love.

Excellent

An amazing story, beautifully written and narrated. I'm sad to have finished it. A book that will stay with me for a very long time.

I found this story so far fetched. I always give some leeway regarding fiction writing but this was way beyond tolerable. The characters were unconvincing. An immense amount of unnecessary description too.

I struggled through his first Novel of this series but thought I'd give him another chance. I definitely will not be listening to any more. The story was tedious, repetitive and dull.

An emotional roller coaster

This is one of the most absorbing stories I have listened to on Audible. I was totally submerged in the story, every emotion in me came to the surface. It was so dark and tragic that I was holding my breath many times. If this is a first novel then my goodness we have a lot to look forward to in the future. The narrators immersed you into the characters.

I enjoyed the epilogue and author's notes at the end. Overall the story didn't match the first novel in content and style but I do wonder whether that was due to the narrator.
