I tend to cut sequels a lot of slack. Sequels are hard... particularly when the author clearly did not intend to write one from the start and did not leave much room for one.
That said, this sequel was just awful. The character who we know and love from River God is a self referencing caricature. The plot is more or less more of the same and the narrative style is weak. The plot does not really hold together and whole chapters could have been dispensed with as they did not advance the plot.
While I thought the first book was an interesting listen, this was an unworthy successor.
That said. I seem to be in the firm minority. Most other people who left ratings for this book rated it very highly. It is possible that I am missing something or just did not enjoy the original book enough. This gives me pause and suggests that you seek out other reviews to see if there is another side that I did not appreciate.
The narration and sound-quality were completely unexceptionable.

If were made into a movie they would be hard put to not edit out some scenes or have a R or even X rating. I didn't appreciate the explicit gore much but did like the history being brought to life. Very life-like, including the sex, if that is what you are looking for in your library (I'm not) ; its all part of life.
