This is without a doubt my favorite series on audible. It's expertly performed, well written, captivating, funny, and tragic all at the same time. My only complaint is that I can't listen to the next book yet. Absolutely wonderful. The characters are very much tropes but after the initial "oh this guy is just a stereotype" moment with most characters almost everyone shows new depth and creativity in how they not only explore why they are who they are, but how their life has made them be that way. Everyone with ears should listen to this. Thank you

Wonderful idea pulled down by unlikable characters

This book is a quick trip with well know characters for those of you who have read the rest of the series, the previous two entries are mostly filler and character development whilst this is almost entirely sweeping changes to the standing narrative.
And while I do appreciate the desire to make meaningful changes to the status quo it is done at the expense of the characters like-ability and depth.
Easily the best example of this is Brit, her character is presented to the reader as if she is the best thing to ever happen to Phillip, but in none of the books are we really givin a reason to believe it or even like her very much. She is constantly angry, aloof or bitter. She doesn't solve any of her own problems or add any greater meaning to the story. She is more of an awful harpy than a person for the majority of her story. If you find yourself a fan of Brit before reading this book I would recommend to avoid it if you wish to keep that feeling. I can't imagine why you would be her entire character is a stereotype of the bitter feminist that is desperate to find a man to punish for his transgressions, this was the entire Roy and brit subplot in book 3, while Gwen is every annoying girlfriend trope rolled in to one unpleasant character. To be honest the story feels like a shallow attempt to make strong female characters that just creates two holyer than thou hags who make our two primary characters miserable. Martin and Phillip can do much better for themselves than the loose collection of character flaws that serve as this series' female leads.
Performance is excellent. Daniels is a treat to listen to.

This extension to the story is a laudable effort that feels like wish fulfillment. I enjoyed it at the time but many new plot points are introduced in a somewhat slap dash fashion. Now that may be the author constructing a complex and random world, or it could be throwing all the fun interesting stuff out that they can think of. Based on the tone I'd lean towards the latter. I don't want to come across as if I don't enjoy this story, the characters are fun and human for the most part and the world is interesting. Catch it on a sale and enjoy yourself
