    Description

    Discover the extraordinary debut that has got everyone talking.

    Mild-mannered headmaster, Thomas Senlin prefers his adventures to be safely contained within the pages of a book. So when he loses his new bride shortly after embarking on the honeymoon of their dreams, he is ill-prepared for the trouble that follows. 

    To find her, Senlin must enter the Tower of Babel - a world of geniuses and tyrants, of menace and wonder, of unusual animals and mysterious machines. And if he hopes to ever see his wife again, he will have to do more than just survive...this quiet man of letters must become a man of action.

    Commentaires

    "One of my favourite books of all time." (Mark Lawrence)

    "An extraordinary debut that is well worthy of the hype. A beautifully written, highly engaging page-turning masterpiece." (Fantasy Book Review)

    "Thomas Senlin is the most unlikely yet likeable hero since a certain hobbit rushed out of Bag End leaving his second breakfast half-finished and entirely unwashed-up." (Fantasy Faction)

    Boring...

    Just found the whole story terribly boring. None of the characters are likeable, notably the main protagonist. In the end I just didn't care what happened as I had no interest whatsoever... Narration is fine, but the story just isn't interesting

    Enjoyable read and an original setting

    The plot was fine and enjoyable, if build from a rather standard set of blocks. The setting was great, the characters likeable. The performance was very good.

    Slow start to a surprise swashbuckling adventure

    The story might start a bit slow and seem shallow, but much as the protagonist scales the tower and reveals its secrets so does the adventure unfold to an interesting intrigue. The narration does a great job in portraying the boring but loving protagonist and is a joy to listen to.

    Beautiful, a little slow

    The narrator is good, and it is an interesting setting, and the writing is fine, but it does pick up very slowly, and I think I will wait until the final, fourth book is out before going further, because it is clearly one planned-out story split into four books.
