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
Love historical romance, I drive for a living an it helps the time go bye
Right at the top all 3 books were fantastic
Yes I don't want to say incase I ruin it for the next reader
Wish there was more
First book was great, last two slow and boring. So much build up to the finale and like Robert Jordan very little put into the climax that was building over the 3 books.
I found myself angry at Fitz for being so dumb and the story was very predictable.
not read anything else by Robin Hobb
When I finish a book or a series, I rate it by how much I want to listen to it again. I never want to pick this series up again. Does not compare at all to say the Riyria Revelations series or pretty much anything from Michael J Sullivan. I have listen to those books many times and the story never gets old.
Bloody annoyingly good.
The Fool, cause he was less stupid and annoying as Fitz.
He was able to get to my emotions............ I even got so mad at the story that I dropped the book for two weeks, but couldn't stay away so I returned back to listening.
When Porridge and Molly got married, I was tired of Fitz always going back to the Molly story.
Excellent book, I was impressed with how Regal was dealt dealt with. I thought I was going to be able to predict that.
It was a good series from beginning to end, although there were one or two things that made me roll my eyes and go "Yes, yes...tortured soul...I got the gist...move on with the plot please". I really wished it had turned out differently at the end, or maybe I just wanted more resolution? I will tell people to check out this series. Do I think it holds up to Robert Jordan or George RR Martin? Not quite, but I enjoyed it all the same. Paul Boehmer is one of my favorite Narrators, so no complaints there at all!
i like Sci-Fi & Epic Fantasy with a little romance mixed in
Yes, it was a good listen but sad at times
the magic and how it was used
