  • Four Fires

    (768)

    The four fires in this story are passion, religion, warfare, and fire itself. While there are many more fires that drive the human spirit, love being perhaps the brightest flame of all, it is these four that have moulded us most as Australian people. The four fires give us our sense of place and, for better or for worse, shape our national character.

    Love Courtney's work, and this story does not disappoint. Humphrey Bower, as always, is fantastic! Enjoyed this story even more than the Australia trilogy (which is surprising since I loved those three books). Touching, funny, and so well written and read.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    I am a nerd. I love Tolkien and Martin. I have devoured those series (repeatedly). Rothfuss has got me! Give it time, and this story will captivate! Kvothe is both naive and wise. In the recounting of his story, he helps explain his own myth. Rothfuss does a great job at developing characters and keeping you wanting more. I found myself taking longer walks, doing the dishes more often, and taking the long way home from work just to find time to listen to more of the story! Not sure about the negative reviews out there, but I cannot wait for more!
