I enjoyed The Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo, so when this was on sale at Audible I bought it. Well, it took me a very long time to finish it. I started it and got bored, so I listed to a couple of different audiobooks, then tried again, then got bored again, and left it, and finally decided to finish the experience on my holiday in Wales this September (I hate not finishing books).
The Ninth House (which I did enjoy) was an ‘urban fantasy’ in that it was set in the ‘real world’ but with a paranormal magical hidden society existing along side ‘real life’. Six of Crows, however, is more classic fantasy in that it is set in a completely made up world with all the classic fantasy tropes of a sort of medieval street urchin society with warring overlords and groups of people with different magic traits/abilities. I remember liking that sort of thing in my youth, but either I’ve grown out of that, or this just wasn’t an example of the genre that piqued my interest but I found it turgid and boring and annoying. There were several narrators, and one of them really annoyed me as well. Lol. Didn’t love it.
