Old Bear likes the honey
This is among my absolute favorite audiobooks!
Although there are a lot of memorable moments in this book, I would argue the climax is the most exhilarating and memorable moment (particularly the prince's words from afar to our protagonist).
This is a fantastic book filled with memorable scenes. I think my favorite scene is again the climax.
This book resonates with me because I can think back on my own childhood and have the experiences of our protagonist remind me of my own experiences. The scene that sticks out to me at the moment of this writing is the awkward scene between Fitz and Molly seated together on the shore.... I've been there Fitz! I feel for you!
A fantastic audiobook! A perfect story that is very well read. If you like fantasy, it doesn't get much better than this! I can't wait to listen to the next one! (after my obligatory return to Pratchett - I read a Discworld novel every other book to cleanse my palate as the richest sorbet!)
I have been listening to books on a very regular basis for 2 years consuming about 100 per year. Believe me when I tell you the entire series is a masterpiece of story telling. All three books are seriously excellent with sweeping graphical descriptions and the ability to invoke very strong and deep emotions. The main character is likely to be with you for life. Enjoy.
great first book of an excellent series. I was given the first two books of Fitz and the fool and now I'm starting at the first of the whole journey.
I love fantasy and I am so glad that I stumbled onto this series! I am not sure why this story has captured me so completely, for the characters are predictable (good are good and bad are bad) but the plot is interesting and the pacing is done masterfully.
no, the book's always better
Good story, a little predictable, in parts disappointing and a little long. However I do recommend it because it does have twists and turns that make it enjoyable and make you want to listen to the story.
