2022.01.20 10:36 DefinitelyPositive [Review, no spoilers] Master Assassins by Robert V.S. Redick

Roughly two weeks ago, there was a topic asking why 'Master Assassins' wasn't more popular. I decided to get it as an audiobook to find out for myself- and now I think I know more.
Premise
In a middle-eastern inspired setting with low fantasy elements, the story mainly follows two brothers who are soldiers in the Prophet's army. They're not, as the title suggests, Master Assassins- but due to an unfortunate sequence of events they are branded as such and so must flee for their lives.
The story itself alternates between the present and the past, revisiting the brother's childhood and their sibling rivalry.
Book strengths - The prose is nice, I found it enjoyable to listen to. - Depicts the love/hate that can exist between friends/siblings well. - I found the chase to be interesting. - Is magic real? Is it not? I liked the vagueness.
The book is at its best when... Their pursuers are close by, and the characters grow frustrated, angry or scared. Trying desperately to find a way out of their predicament.
Book flaws - Its characters aren't all that compelling. - The past childhood sequences don't really lead anywhere (satisfactory). - In some ways it feels like a prologue more than a story unto itself.
The book is at its worst when... When a childhood flashback chapter punctures the pace or the excitement of a prior chapter, especially since I felt they added very little to the story as a whole.
Thoughts and reflections Listening to this book was actually sort of strange, because I was caught between two feelings a bit. On the one hand, I found the story concept itself appealing and interesting- two brothers chased by the religious zealots of a madwoman prophet. On the other hand, I found it hard to care for the characters overly much, because they're so... shallow, somehow? It's odd because I think the author actually manages to write decent and believable reactions/dialogue, but somehow the characters themselves fail to materialize, even with dedicated flashback chapters to their upbringing. I didn't really root for them, and I had a hard time picturing them- even when I felt there were moments in the book that were introspective, I never connected with anyone.
The childhood chapters were especially annoying because I feel as if you can cut them out entirely out of the book and you'd not miss out on anything. I understand the purpose of them, but they were a bit too many with too little interesting things happening- I think learning of the brothers relationship via things said (or left unsaid) in the present plot would've felt more natural and been more to the point.
Even so, I still finished the book... to my surprise? Because I normally don't hesitate to drop books I don't like and yet I listened until the end. I wasn't exactly heavily invested, but I was still curious to see how it'd end. The ending isn't a cliffhanger, exactly, but it still feels like Book One was a setup for the 'true' start, given how directionless the characters are (beyond 'flee!') until the final stretch.
Score: 3/5 It's a competent book that I'd probably not recommend unprompted, and I can see why it's not more popular than it is. It lacks a certain something that elevates it- but it's not bad by any means, and I do not regret reading it.

Has anybody been able to check these out yet? I definitely want one but the only place they’re available are rusblade for like $1100…which is 300-400 dollars more than the neon zero frag for just a different milling design it seems.
Will they be headed to any US retailers or will this just be a limited run?
Thanks!

2022.01.20 10:36 cookie1128 Nerve ablation failed twice

I have DDD, herniated discs and arthritis all in my spine. I tried the first ablation and it was pure Bliss for about two months. After that my pain came back ten fold. Had another ablation procedure with no sedation (I'm a "hard stick"), and after I was done I immediately got short of breath and thought I was having a heart attack. It was either an allergic reaction or panic attack or both. The second I had done about a month and a half ago roughly. This morning my back is back to where it was before I had anything done. Here's my problem. I'm absolutely terrified to go back and have anything done. Is my back so bad that I can't handle ablation procedures? I'm at my wits end, and my PC, as sweet as he is kinda doesn't like to write scripts for pain meds because I have chronic pain. Idk if anyone else has dealt with this but it's terrible. Epidurals make me gain weight and didn't do anything back in the day so I think I'm out of options. If there happens to be any docs on here please give me your input. Thank you for reading and I hope y'all have a wonderful day.

2022.01.20 10:36 ThisBat1 Notebook in Dark Mode - Which setting controls this highlighting?

I'm using Jupyter Notebooks in vscode. When an an error occurs the critical part of the traceback is highlighted. In dark themes (with white/bright font colors) this makes the highlighted part almost impossible to read. So far I did not find a corresponding setting to achieve appropriate highlighting.
Can anybody give me a hint?
