I loved Carter Beats The Devil - I felt though that this, his second book, was unnecessarily long and did tend to ramble in parts- the history aspect of it was truly fascinating though and I'm glad I read it - its a long old listen at 25 hours! Jeff Harding's narration was, as usual excellent although I was most surprised to hear Jeff let out a mighty belch and then simply repeat the previous sentence as though nothing had happened - I'm sure it must just have been overlooked during the editing but it goes to show that we are all human (Its at around 5 hours 53 mins in on the third section)

I'd decided to embark on a campaign of "follow-ups to debuts I'd enjoyed where maybe critical success hadn't followed".
First up was Ready Player One's sequel Armada. Wasn't as good, but was enjoyable enough.
Then This. This I hated. I've given it a few hours and for the first time ever I'm calling it as a book I won't finish. First ever.
Not a technical issue, narration is fine, it's just a "bad book". Actually, don't even think that covers it. I've normally no issue sticking with something just to get to the end, here though I don't even care where the end is. I've no interest in finding out where the plot goes and I've definitely no interest in listening to the f'in prose.
