Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
As always with Duncan, the characters are well chiseled, and the story is excellent. However, there were so many deities and characters involved in this story, that I think I would have been able to keep them all better apart if I had read the book and seen all the names spelled out, instead of listening to them. Towards the end, it felt rather long, but I still could not put it away. I had to know how it ended! And it's always a thrill to see what Duncan has come up with.
Who was your favorite character and why?
One of Dave Duncan's strengths is his ability to create strong, belieavable female characters. Gwin Solith, the lead character in 'The Cursed' is definitely one of them. It's very interesting to see how well she adapts to the changes in her life, and to see how she influences others. In my opinion, Duncan is the master of this.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator did a good job, but I have grown more accustomed to British readers, and did not really enjoy Peter Berkrot. He did however do a good job keeping all the different characters apart, giving them life.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
If I would see the movie? Well, that depends on who would make it. I think I would prefer the book over the movie.
What disappointed you about The Cursed?
Author ignored, killed or twisted every developed character until I cursed the impulse that caused me to buy this. By the end I didn't even care what happened next to anyone. Worst Duncan book ever. How could an author take such a good start and so completely destroy it.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
