Poorly introduced world made worse as audiobook
This book is infamous for its writing style, introducing a large seemingly deep and complex world and dusins of characters, without actually introducing (as in describe or put into context) any of them. As a result it is impossible to know what anyone or anything is without extensive crossreferencing. This is unfortunately hard to do with an audiobook.
I managed to get some good moments out of the audiobook after using online wiki's to look up what things was and what was going on, without that, this would have been a one-star.

Same league as books like Throne of Games, Kingkiller Chronicles or The Way of Kings.
What I like most about this book (and the series?) is that Erikson does not just tell a medieval story with some of the sterotype magic and mystery here and there. Erikson uses the whole band width of magic, i.e. shamans, sorcerers, seers, gods, all kinds of creatures of shadow and light, even gods interfering with world of humans and the other way arround.
If you like a vast and highly complex story with lots of players intertwined, never really knowing the full intentions of all of them, I am sure you like this book as I do.
For sure one of the very best books I read/listened to. I hope www.audible.de soon gets the next books of this series for download.
