Decided to reread Book 1 for the first time in over a decade. So much changed! 🐲🐉💚

sprainedbrain I love the audio! Simon Vance is so good. 😃 6y
ohbthr @sprainedbrain I did the last three on audio, he's fabulous! I didn't realize how much his narrative voice changed, some of the characters sound completely different by the end :p 6y

A liiittle disappointed by the end, which was thematically very similar to Imaginary Girls. Still a twisty, suspenseful read with interesting characters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I cannot BELIEVE that after TEN YEARS I finally finished the entire Temeraire series!!
Book rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Say what you will about Dickens (I can say a lot) but describing King Louis' court as suffering from "the leprosy of unreality"? The man can turn a phrase.

I failed out of Throne of Glass almost immediately but I'm giving the author another shot. I'm about 1/4 in, which is way further than the last time I tried. We'll see.

If you've read the Newsflesh trilogy, you should definitely read this short story/novella collection. If you haven't read the Newsflesh trilogy, what are you waiting for??

Thanks for that lovely stigmatization of people that seek help from medical professionals, guys. I know the character is from the 40s, but come on.

WordWaller Yeahhhhh I had problems with this one. 6y
