I took a chance on this one, I'm not usually a fan of straight up Fantasy. And particularly one that is centered around a male protagonist who at first is incredibly unlikeable. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and narration and it hooked me on my daily commute. I'll definitely listen to the rest of the series. I DO see what had some folks up in arms over with the main character and his behavior towards women. Didn't bother me tho.
