horrible storyline

I love all of the Drizzt, Brimstone angels, Sembia, Sundering series and also the previous books in the Elminster series. The storyline was absoluley horrid. It is about Elminster geting caught in hell and a devil trying to extract a spell from Elminsters memories. Elminster trys to distract the devil by projecting useless memories from his past so he doesn't give the spell . Every 5 minutes the devil exlaims stop wasting my time with useless memories! I felt like I was wasting my time listening to small boring incohesive irrelevant snippets of Elminsters memories. Every memoire has a different set of charachters so its like listening to 50 short stories that are bland and dont really connect. Perhaps the stories will make sense in future books, but this was a horrid listen. The reader is great as always, but due the content of this book I have to give it 1 star.

Disappointing offering from a great author

I love Greenwood, but this was painful almost from beginning to end. He abandons his usual flowing style for a weird, broken framing device based on gruesomely detailed physical and mental torture.

The vignettes that are framed are often intriguing, but are all too short, and it's back to the torture, literal and figurative. I was not a huge fan of The Temptation of Elminster, either, but at least it was a single, if broken, narrative, and came to an unexpectedly tight conclusion. I could enjoy the style if not always the content. This book has none of those saving graces.

Sorry, Ed. I wanted to love it, I really did.
