A graceful conclusion

It's a Western in the First Law world. I enjoyed it very much. As usual exceptionally well wrought characters and lot's of cruelty.

Great author, poor interviewer

Enjoyable to hear one of my favourite authors talking about his work, but a shame that the interviewer was out of her depth and obviously didn’t know his work.

Decent length

I appreciate this interview's length being double that of some others, they had the time to go into more than a couple topics

Some interesting information

Great guest, not so great host...
Someone who knows the genre and cares about it could do a better job interviewing Abercrombie, but it's still worth the listen (it was even more so when it came out).

He's truly become my favorite writer.

He is truly an amazing author. I just hope he keeps churning out books until he has told his full story. He's so damn good.

Does not address upcoming TV projects

Good to hear from Joe but, a bit misleading when TV is mentioned in the description. Does not discuss his First Law books to TV.

Nice bonus interview

I didn’t realize audible was doing this kind of content. I really enjoyed having the additional interview as a sort of addendum to the books. And of course it comes at the right price.

the Lord of Grimdark has some depth

I've been a reader and fan of Joe Abercrombie almost from the beginning. So when this interview became available I snapped it up and listened immediately. I guess you can say I'm a fanboy, but I was pleasantly surprised by both the interviewer's questions and Joe's answers. The questions she asked were well thought out and probing. Even better, Abercrombie's replies were insightful and made me appreciate the fine line he walks between his grungy, often violent world and the humor he injects into it. Well done Elise and Audible! If you've never read any of Abercrombie's First Law series, I can highly recommend it.
