The nail in the coffin...

What disappointed you about Death of a Darklord?

It read like a work that had been done as a freshmen in college or high school, Maybe drug out of the dark, from the back of a dusty drawer, and someone said "hey ,we could release this and take advantage of all the success, those poor saps will buy ANYTHING SHE WRITES!!!!!!!!!and I did.

What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

everything,It sounded like an adaption of a video game.~~~RANT ALERT~~~

I feel like Hamilton has just gotten very very lazy. I had already gotten very fed up with the "we know she likes sex scenes you can stop repeating them now" ,i mean, when the sex starts to bore me there is a problem.I feel like her succes has made her writing incredibly lazy and that this book was either written while she was in a coma or about thirty years ago and was such a dog she couldnt publish it until now. I will not blow $$$ on another thing she writes ,ever.I dont care. Ill go to the library. Last dime she gets from me.EVER AGAIN. period.
Over it.
Hope Anita gets eaten by Mommie Darkness.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator was distinctly bad, Just..AARGH, Ya know how really good male narrators sound, the smooth voices with subtle inflection? No heavy weird overly dramatic emphasis on the wrong syllable.....well, this wasnt it.This was so bad, i could barely pay attention to the words and when i concentrated on the dialogue I could barely stand that...I thought I was going to black out. Awful.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Death of a Darklord?


Any additional comments?

Worst Book Ever - What a bummer, I love LKH

What disappointed you about Death of a Darklord?

I got through about 3 chapters before I had to stop. The narrator is so bad that I couldn't focus on the story. There was nothing gripping about it that made me want to keep going. I love Laurell K. Hamilton and am totally disappointed.

How could the performance have been better?

Needed a female narrator. This guy is not good.

Any additional comments?

don't waste your credit.
