My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I listened to this in a post-prandial stupor. It was a short book.
Steven Pressfield tackles the problem that people face when they are struggling to create something. He calls it Resistance with a capital R. It’s a combination of self-doubt, deception, fear of change and success. Resistance is a negative force that opposes any creativity and keeps us from fulfilling our dreams.

As always Stephen Fry is a joy to hear. Though I have come across all of these heroes and stories, hearing them again brought back memories of reading them as comics or books. I would have liked to hear a bit more about other heroes also in addition to the famous ones that we all know about.

πŸ“š Nemesis Games

My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I started this after watching a few episodes of The Expanse Season 5.
Compared to the previous stories, this is more of an exploration of the crew’s individual forays into a world they’ve left behind when they wound up together on the Rocinante.
Hoping to catch up on the rest of Season 5 and also see where the story heads to in the next book.

πŸ“š The Last God

My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Last God was an amazing piece of high #fantasy storytelling by Phillip Kennedy Johnson. Riccardo Federici‘s artwork is simply out of this world. I spent a lot of time on each panel marvelling at the drawings.
I read these as individual comics: (The Last God: 1-12 and Specials: The Last God: Tales from the Book of Ages and
The Last God: Songs of the Lost Children).
Now I’m looking forward to read more stories set in the Cain Anuun universe.
