Love The Old Kingdom, Returned this Addition
All of the other books in the Old Kingdom make up some of my favorite books that I have both read and listened to many times. I was excited to see this one released, but I was sorely disappointed.
The stories were now only short, as is advertised, but they were also very weak. I Love a good short story, but I found these uninteresting.
There are many narrators, and most of them were sub-par. I can't think of any that I liked in particular. I'd probably give most of them a second chance.
The Old Kingdom novels provide rich stories, character development, and although they are about a belief system that not too many people believe to be true, manage to present these concepts very well. They also manage to present a system of death and the afterlife without purposely insulting people who have other beliefs about the afterlife. This book, on the other hand, takes several different swings at Christianity that I found to be downright offensive. One of the chapters was particularly bad, so I skipped it, but I was surprised to find that the book continued to attempt to paint Christians as walking jokes.
I will probably listen to Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen, Clariel, and Goldenhand many more times, but this particular addition will be put in the junk pile.
