I had no idea what apartheid was actually like. I had heard of it but never could appreciate the actual intricacies of it. The book teaches about this topic in a way that is funny but still hammers home the main point, racism is stupid.

great end to s great story.

Loved this book and series a lot. Can't wait for Mr Brett to write more based in the same world. Narrator's voice became a bit too quiet as points but that is my only criticism. Definitely a must read.

Such an eye opening read.

As a civil law solicitor I was given a real insight into the workings and failing of my legal neighbors. I thought the civil system was a misunderstood and neglected system but after reading this I have a new found gratefulness for the area of English law I call home whilst being inspired to leave it for the hardships and heartache the writer describes. Just so that I may feel the same civic pride he feels in being part of our criminal law system.

The book is damning yet hope inspiring book. I recommend this book to everyone as it challenges all manner of misconceptions about the criminal justice system in a very entertaining way.

well what an end to a fantastic series

I will read these time and again the make you laugh a lot and cry at times. it's a book about a 3 way bromance and it's a brilliant end to the story. Except for one thing that is winding me up.

DO NOT LISTEN TO THE FIST CHAPTER

it is an interview with Steven King and he gives away the ending of the book!!!!

otherwise this book is amazingly dark with brilliant suspense and brilliant storytelling.

found the narrator a little annoying to start with but got used to him pretty quickly.

I knew the concept of this book and went into it fully expecting to be disappointed but Pat Rothfuss's poetic writing style has managed to make something magical out of the mundane.

Pat himself reads this audiobook and I find myself disagreeing with the way he pronounces some of the words he himself has made up.

In conclusion this book made me feel.

Better than the first.

This book has a bad habit of switching character chapters right when you are at a cliff hanger which I found very annoying. But a few minutes into the following chapter I would forget my annoyance as it goes from strength to strength without a weak chapter in it. I love this series so far.

The narration does nothing to enhance the story but does nothing to irritate as some do the best way to describe it would be invisible or seamless. Letting you enjoy the book without mind for any dodgy voice acting.

Slow starter but picks up well.

The story moves at a slow pace to begin with but get better as it goes, with most of the excitement towards the end and leaves you wanting to read on to find out what happens to the characters in this world full of battle, political manoeuvring and religious fanatics.

The narration was average as it made it difficult at times to distinguish between characters as they all sound so similar. This is not helped by the fact that the names of the characters are so alike in sound or so long and complicated as to make recognition difficult. In fact I was still confused as to which one of main protagonist's group was which right up until the very last chapter.

For all this it is still enjoyable and I will be reading the next installments.

Such an exciting and gripping read.

The book my lack some depth but it a very enjoyable and thrilling read. I am sad that I will have to wait for the third installation but I am confident it will be worth the wait.

The performance was a bit difficult to follow at times as the characters voices were quite similar and many are talking in groups but regardless the narrator did well in a difficult situation.

I highly recommend this action packed read for lovers of fantasy and epic adventure like me.

Forget the standard fantasy formula.

I really enjoyed this book it was a breath of fresh air. Gone is the standard story of a farm boy or whatever whom you follow as he adventures and gains skills to become a force to be reckoned with. Instead you see the world through the eyes of Rezkin who is about as far from untested as a character can be.

Really recommend this book it light and refreshing yet intense and enjoyable.
