I found it entertaining and a perfect audiobook to put in the background, but ultimately not so interesting...

Maybe I'm not the target audience...

...but this book seems terrible to me. No characterization of the characters, obvious plot twists, a school system that for some reason has to have a tribe system like any young adult book in the last twenty years.
Even the reader seems bored, speeding through the "emotional" parts and slowing down in the description parts, with no pathos. I am aware that reading a book aloud is not an easy job, but this is not a very well read book.
I couldn't finish it and I can't recommend it.

oh my God is this book terrible.
I didn't manage to finish it because it's a strange mixture of Harry Potter, Divergent and maybe some other adult series I don't know, but set in medieval China, so that everything, EVERYTHING feels absolutely fake.
The reader does her best, but you can't do much with a book whose ridiculous premise is that the future generals of the Empire are selected not because of their military prowess but through a test where the biggest part is literature.
Don't make my same mistake: don't waste your money on this

I bought this audiobook after reading "Uprooted" and "Spinning silver", because I craved for more good writing. The idea behind this book is interesting, but the writing, which tried to imitate period writing, is soooo pompous that it makes the story hard to follow and the characters perfectly uninteresting. It doesn't help that the reader is always keeping the same boring tone of voice even during bloodbaths
