Bargain bin Name of the Wind

Pros: some exciting parts. The main protagonist keeps making terrible decisions which gets kind of funny. Narrator is great
Cons: So much milling and wandering around the same place. Constant expository dialog and thoughts: if you are not sure what the main figures are thinking, they will tell you 3-8 times. Really very little payoff for therms of a trilogy

The conclusion that disappointed

After listening to the first two novels in the series I was hooked and had grand expectations for the big finale. I was very disappointed in this final book and the way it was written.
I believe that the story was made far longer than the material could withstand. This series is well worth listening to and is entertaining in its entirety, however the last book is missing that great intrige that I had come to expect from the first two books.
Hats off to the narrative and the artistic manner in which he laid out this magical tail of love and war.
