Great Battles

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I really enjoyed the battles in this book. It was nice to have a book that didn't skimp or gloss over the battles.
While that was certainly the main plus on the book it also has some negatives. I did find it a bit tedious and a bit simple. I think maybe if I had listened to this when I was 15 I would of loved it. I now like something with a bit more substance. A story line with a bit more character growth. There is a huge horde of Orcs yet we only ever really know 5 of them.
If you wants nice easy listen that is full of battles and people being hit over the head with there severed arm then this is the book for you.
If your looking for great character development with many twists and turns then probably not.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Strike is probably my favourite character simply for the reason he is the only one with any real character development through out the book.

Do you think Orcs needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It is a good stand alone book and wraps up most questions.

so glad I redisovered this book

I owned this book several years ago , lent it out and never got it back. Really good book and a different view on orcs which is refreshing. Quality is good but the narrators accents can be a little overdramatic.

Orcs 1 Humans 0

This book was great. There was drama, violence, humour and a really different take on the fantasy world. Seen totally from the orcs point of view, it tells the story of how the noble and honorable orcs have been abused and mistreated by the lying, evil weaslely humans throughout history. A small warband of orcs (made up of several memorable and likeable characters) fall foul of their evil mistress and are left with 2 choices (fight for their freedom or die). You'll find yourself embarrassed to be a human and cheering for the green guys by the end of this one!
