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.
The story was well written, descripted, and flowed like a poem but some parts were slow and uninteresting to me. Characters were ok. The reader was very good.
If Hobbs writing wasn't so detailed and eloquent in her descriptions of the politics for the throne. I probably would have given up on this book because of the performance of the narrator. He wasn't bad, but characters seemed very flat.
