One of the few epics of fantasy where surprises follow each other and almost nothing goes as planned. Only reason i give 4/5 is the end where it seems to drag on for hours without much happening.
The narrator was very good with voices but has an odd cadence at times. His inflection sometimes makes it difficult to tell where a sentence begins and ends. This tendency occasionally pulled me out of the story. I did enjoy this series.
The development of Robin Hobb's writing over the course of this story is great. Despite the length of the novel, it manages not to drag. It is chock-full of content and the pacing is good. The way everything wraps up is completely satisfying as well. If you've read the first 2 books you absolutely must read the 3rd.
Although I didn't find the 2nd book that satisfying, overall I'm very pleased with the trilogy and intend to read more of her books.
I enjoyed this story.. it was sweeping, exciting. I heard all 3 books and got carried along on an amazing journey for hours.
I enjoyed the story, but it was extremely slow moving. Sometimes I was tempted to fast forward. Good narration. Long.
i understand that in the first book the boy is learning. But then you find out that the guy is just a complete idiot.
write it as a short story
guy is good
the idiot main caracter
if u read on because you think that nobody can be this dumb and eventually he must figure it out; don't. just stop after book 1
Tip to the bastard: just kill the guy, please!
To the author; please stop writing these books, its painful
