Couldn't finish it

Honestly not really worth it, I can appreciate it's importance in defining a certain sub-genre of fantasy, but I really didn't enjoy it. The plot is so choppy, the characters unrelatable, and the pacing awkward. I found myself zoning out then having to go back and re-listen to sections, and still not really getting what was going on.

I also don't get it

I got this book with the view to read the series as it appears on some recommended book lists I follow.
Looking more closely at the reviews on here it appears people fall into two camps either loving or hating it.
After listening to more than half the book I have to admit I just could not get into it.
I'm distracted by the narrator and poor voice acting in my opinion, bad writing, poorly developed characters, story that jumps all over the place and is difficult to follow.
Personally I just put it down to the fact that it was written in the 80s and we've moved on.
The just pales in comparison the the Joe Abercrombie books I just finished listening to.
I just can't recommend this.
