Some stories have happy endings, and in an odd way this one does as well, although it over all feels like a tragedy that even the Greeks would be proud of.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone who enjoys listening to the same boring description of unimportant events and little character development or prefers to hit themselves repeatedly with a hammer...
What do you think your next listen will be?
Already listening to Master of Mankind and relishing it!!!!
Would you listen to another book narrated by Jonathan Keeble?
Yep, he's a brilliant narrator, but he can only do so much with what this author has given him. There's only so many ways you can play a spoiled teen who throws his toys out of the pram every time he's disappointed.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Perturabo: The Hammer of Olympia?
Pretty much the first four hours of the book... The author tries to impart the difficulties the Iron Warriors had to over come but it just became repetitive and I had no connection with the characters. The description leads one to believe that the novel will be about Perterabo sorting out Olympia but that only consumes an hour of listening. Shame really because it could be so much more.
Any additional comments?
Unlike the two previous Primarch novels - Russ and Magnus the Red - which are wonderful additions to the the story line and fit seamlessly with the 'Horus Heresey' novels, Hammer doesn't quite measure up to its kin Angel Exterminatus. If you must really listen because you're a fan of the Iron Warriors or the P-man himself, be prepared for a long slogging listen that truly requires a like determination, iron within, iron without.
This book will make you do all 3. Loved it. A very well paced and insightful look into one of the history and pschology of one of the lesser known characters from The Horus Heresy.
