Not as bad as the other review.

I'm just writing to go against that other review of the guy hating the book and making him stop reading the series.

The narrator is great. The timeline in the story is set up strangely. But not too hard to follow and anything would be better than the book of lady.

TERRIBLE, ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE READER.

names pronounced incorrectly, loooooong unexplained pauses. BAD READER. Book was okay. Murgan took some getting used to which I blame on the reader. time line is confusing as well

very enjoyable

This was a very good book. I was worried when I saw many people complaining about the story continually jumping through time. I found it a great way to tell the story of what happened to the Black Company inside the city of Dejagora (uncertain of exact spelling) during the time frame of Croaker and Lady's time outside the city (previous book) while at the same time pushing the Black Company's story along with the war against the remaining shadow masters.

also loved the narrator's performance. having a new voice for murgen to differentiate from the narrator who reads Croaker was great. the reader provided great voices and personality to all the characters. after having listened to a couple other books recently with monotonous and emotionless voices, this narrator was like a breath of fresh air.

Series Killer

If any book in the Black Company series can drive a fan to quit, it is this one. The constant, disjointed, mind numbing jumps between perspective time periods turns this book into some bastardized choose-your-own-adventure story. Take a regular novel, chop it into a dozen or two pieces, then read those pieces in random order and you've got Bleak Seasons.

The narrator does such a fine job with the voices, I almost pity the man for having to read this assault on listeners minds.

The style of presentation in Bleak Seasons is so dreadful and of no narrative relation to its predecessors that one has to wonder if Glen Cook were in a particularly vile mood when he wrote it and was purposefully trying to kill the series.

Not as bad as everyone says

I'm here to tell you not to be put off by the other negative reviews. I think the narrator was fine excluding the pauses, and I got around that by listening at x1.10 speed. The story is pretty good, not quiet like the ones before as it starts to expand in scope. The time shifts are kind of confusing but you get used to it pretty quickly. I like Murgen as the author because he brings a bit of humor to the situation. I think I laughed more in this book than any of the others, though I haven't read the rest of the series. in conclusion, if you want to continue the black company saga but are put off about doing so via audible, don't be. This is a fine book that gets unfairly shit on because its not read by Vietor.

A character book

It took me a while to finally start Bleak Seasons. When I started the first book, I was hooked on the series all the way until Dreams of Steel where the change in narrator turned me off for about a month. After finishing that one, I looked through the reviews for Bleak Seasons and was turned off of it by a lot of the more negative reviews talking about how this is the weakest and most confusing entry in the series. I will agree that so far, this is the book I enjoyed the least out of the Black Company and with the way the story is told, I can see why the reviews said what they did. With that being said, the story is told the way it is to serve a very specific purpose and to build to a very specific payoff for Murgen's character. It is confusing for the first 4th of the book, but Cook does give a enough explanation so you aren't completely in the dark throughout the beginning. The payoff, in my opinion, makes this whole book worth it, and just glancing at the narrator of the next book, I can see we'll be with Murgen again and I'm ready to see where this takes him. As for the rest of the story with the Shadow Masters, it takes a backseat here. We do get some large developments but they are a very small portion of this book. The narrator is another issue I noticed being mentioned in other reviews, it did take a little bit to get used to Jonathan Davis, but he is nowhere near the worst narrator. It does take him about an hour or two to find his stride with the narration but after that I have no large problems with him. All in all, Bleak Seasons is the story and characterization of Murgen more than it is a story about the Black Company. It's a change I can see a lot of people don't quite enjoy, but it is refreshing in its own way

How this story is made nonlinear is confusing

exellent performance of the voice actor but the arrangement of back and forth in time of the story is sub optimal.

Better than expected

Great narration. Didn't advance the story much, mostly a rehash of Lady's story from a different viewpoint. Jumps around a lot.

All over the place

I really like the Black Company, but this book was jarring. It was all over the place with the perspective of a character seeing visions of the past then bouncing back to the present. I really don’t know what Cook was thinking with this book. It was just odd. I give almost every book I review a 5.

at home in the house of pain

I'm not gonna lie, it was harder to get into this book... it's an even bigger change than Lady's book. The first issue is either with the director or the editor... the narrator takes what seems to be a 10 second pause between most sentences, leading me to have listened to the entire first half of this on 1.25x narration. It doesn't seem like this is the case later in the book. The first half is also going to contain a lot of familiar content, and you, like me, might be frustrated at first with it feeling like the story isn't progressing, or is just being told in a way that makes listening feel like chore. But it does change tone and stop leaving you in the dark eventually. I'm giving 4 stars since the beginning of the book felt discouraging. It redeems itself long before its ending, though. Be more patient than some of the other reviewers, and trust that it's written like it is for an important reason.
