Seriously?

Its free quit complaining people. Either you like it or you don't....if you didn't like it, there is no reason to whine about it because you didn't come out of your own pocket to get it. If you did like it, that's great! A book you enjoyed and didn't even spend a penny ...

I'm not saying you can't have your own opinion, i'm just saying it'sa bit silly to get upsetas is you wasted loads of money on it because you didn't.

    quite complex

    I'm about 3/4 of the way through and things are starting to tie together. Fortunately, it's a short book!

    Couldn't finish it.

    Too many characters doing too many things and interacting with too many other charachters without an understandable purpose.
    Or maybe I'm just stupid. Everone else seemed to love this book.

    Not well done...

    Hard to follow where the author is (sort of) leading - the story line is rather jerky. Also, while he uses foreign-sounding character names to set the tone, he then flips back and forth between foreign/military/royal-sounding dialogue and modern slang chit-chat...it almost seems like he gets tired of trying to stay in character and just wants to spit the story out...disconcerting...

    Perhaps if I was more familiar with the series it would have come across as a better read. But, having this as the introduction to the fantasy world Glen Cook created I didn't enjoy it. The only character that I cared for was Lord Ssu-ma, General of one of the antagonist armies. Ethrian didn't seem believable as a leader (perhaps previous books had back story on his education?), the 400 year old wizard came off as a petulant child, the women (other than Mist) seemed weak and not overly intelligent, and the politics was uninteresting. This isn't a long book and it still took me a week to drag myself through it. There was some good groundwork for an interesting world in Shinsan, and perhaps that was explored in other books. But, as a stand alone book, I can't recommend it to anyone.

    The ebook was formatted well with no obvious spelling or grammatical errors.
