I began the book in a cynical frame of mind, as I recgnized the now familiar trend in fantasy fiction to drag out a story with meaningless meanderings,and thereby reduce the picture frame to a blotch of too many characters and no dimensions. I am afraid I was right. The landscape while beautifully afixed, has too many flitting two dimensional charcters who do not develop depth and personality,much in the sad tradition of George RR Martin. It is a crowded tale that does not bring anticipation for the future of the main character.Qvoth is a classic narcissist who manipulates all circumstances to suit himself and does not inspire my sympathy. His relationships appear to only serve his ego.
Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny.
The narrator did a splendid job given the matter.
I think Patrick Rothfuss need not trouble himself to continue this series as it is evident the story has nowhere further to go.
Yes, it has images and pictoids in words that I would like to savour time after time.
The authenticity is unparalleled, the author captured the spirit and hearts of the people he wrote about.Ringing true and incredibly heart breaking , I found myself looking inwards to the deep reaches of my soul, throughout this book.
If I had just read this book, the words would not have flowed in the cascading stream they became when I listened.
Yes, I was deeply disturbed by the character of the young interrogator, who himself is searching for his own soul.
This book is a classic work of fiction that will become the authoritative simile of North Korea, The book itself defies description, as a work of art, the story told is the life that One feels is the truth about the cultural psychology of a true dictatorship.
