Suffering through it - don’t care for the characters/story nor narration
Chapter 1: Forced myself to get through the ENTIRE chapter about a rat which I’m still confused about whether this is a girl or a rat. Almost gave up and returnes the book at chapter 1 but thought I’d persist.
Léo: was called ‘Arrogant, unkind, self absorbed’ by another character which is nicer than what I would have written. Initially thought the woman called him Theo then realised it’s Leo. Still can’t draw up any sympathy for him. Don’t like the narrator’s accent for Léo - doesn’t fit what a Minister for Culture would sound like to me. Couldn’t even cooperate with his class mate who is top ranked for a grand jeu game - so immature and somewhat emotionally bullies the other. No redeeming qualities that I’ve discovered
Grand jeu: what a cop out to say you can’t describe the game and then say it isn’t music, math etc but never really paint what it is
Magister: every single time this word is narrated ‘ma-gi-ster’ I wince (g like guitar not g like magic magician; if this was the intended pronunciation the maggister like maggot would make more sense). That’s a lot of wincing in this book.
Contemplating whether to DNF and return but still trying to continue to listen to whether this is the same book that some rate so highly
- Karen McCarthy / Brenda Dass
Beautiful performances, story not quite at the level of The Binding
A very entertaining read, and beautifully performed. The idea of the grand jeu is intoxicating. The story is often a little strained though, and certain interesting characters are underdeveloped.
A really enjoyable listen
It took me a little while to get into it, but once I was in, I really enjoyed it. Romance, intelligent prose, a beautiful setting and plenty of intrigue. It's imaginative and not like something I have read before. I would highly recommend.
