I don't know what to say really I found Peterson on YouTube a while back, I was a lefty Corbyn supporter who called himself socialist without any real understanding of it. Peterson has inspired me to sort myself out before I criticise others and the wests capitalist ways, inspiring me to actually read(audible) Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche and others so I actually know what I'm talking about ( loosely I have had to look at dictionary and re-read/listen to some chapters as their not easy ). It's a self improvement book that doesn't sugar coat anything and kept my attention from start to finish.

Such and awesome book but a bit of an anticliax...

Where does The Painted Man (The Demon Cycle, Book 1) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I rate it highly, well read well writen but i think i spoiled myself by going through Brandon Sanderson mistborn and stormlight nothing seems to live up to the epicness and excitement of those books. but this is now my 3rd-6th place cannot make my mind up

What did you like best about this story?

Good demon killing fun

What about Colin Mace’s performance did you like?

Does a good west country accent, nice tone to voice very easy to listen to.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Skull squishingly good fun

Any additional comments?

it just ended.... such an anticlimax i will get book 2 to see what happens but was very disapointed.

Yes it was be it very short.

Yes it could be a potter slayer. Liam Neeson or Sean Bean

Any additional comments?

Same as the 1st part if i was paying full price i would not reccomend these books so expensive for only half a book and there is no excuse just greed The Way of Kings: The Stormlight Archive is 45 hours for around £15(my fav) this is 11 hours for £17.50 such a rip off.

Why 2 parts?

Where does The Name of the Wind (Part One) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It rates among the best however its only half of the 1st story in the series The word of radiance was a 45+ hour book and was only £15 roughly this is 16 hours for £17.50 had i not been on the monthly token system i would not have got it seems a little greedy tbh

What about Rupert Degas’s performance did you like?

The 1st half hour was hard to get into but then i settles in with ease many great voices distinct and clear.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

His whole family is murdered.

Any additional comments?

Should not be split into two parts.
