I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
I didn't like this book very much. I think it's mostly due to the fact that I don't like to mix fantasy and epics. If I want to read an ancient epic, I will not tolerate any modernization of any sort. That's what killed this book for me.
