What a wonderful book! And so full of humour, which is rather rare in fantasy.
I finished it late last night, then immediately went to buy the next sequels.
It's a great story with a fantastic plot and characters that aren't shallow, but three dimensional.
We get to know that there is an ancient language, but we aren't regaled with that, so there aren't lots and lots of passages written in that language, just a word or two here and there.
Tim Gerard Reynolds is the perfect fit for this story. I was again impressed with his narration, it is so beautifully done.
A friend of mine had written in her review that she couldn't stop listening, and I should have heeded her 'warning', because it was the same here. It's not a book you can fall asleep to, so I spent one sleepless night (I made a lot of progress with my knitting, though :D)
