It's different, but I found myself better able to follow the changes in who is speaking, and the pace was just right for me. Overall, the book is slightly better than #2, but we're still not up to the promise of the first book in the series. IAC, I'm going to take a break from Safehold and listen to something different. Either Moon Over Soho
, #2 in the Peter Grant urban fantasy police procedural series from Ben Aaronovitch, read by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. A new reader for me, since I didn't buy the Audible version of the first in the series, but I'm really quite hopeful since the underlying book should be fun. If not that, then I've always got a Georgette Heyer waiting. Friday's Child
, in this case.
IMPO, the middle books of the Safehold series were a bit of a slog, but it's started to pick up the pace again in the last two. I thought the most recent one was on par with the first one. They use three different readers in the middle books before returning to Wyman in the most recent book. I didn't think any of them were awful, but I like Wyman the best.
