Dragon Keeper is in my top 10% of the hundreds I've read/listened to.
I don't do memorable moments - I like the entire story or else I don't like it, and I love this one.
I had a hard time getting used to this reader in the Live Ships series, but have come to appreciate her excellent continuation of voices even in this series. She is talented, but different. Different is not negative.
Yes - but sure couldn't!
I strongly suggest that potential readers listen to Hobb's Live Ships series first. The Dragon series is an indirect completion (or continuation?) of that first series and a greater understanding and appreciation will be the result of reading Live Ships first. The Live Ships series is one of the most inventive I've ever read. I don't think I would have appreciated this as much had I not already known the roots.
It's good; the series has been good because the author has developed characters very well. That is the only thing that is keeping me going with purchasing the books. I'm tired of the sex scenes since they are all the same, but the characters are all quite individual and it keeps drawing me in to find out what happens next to the people I now know. Probably like a soap opera I imagine.
I can't rate a single character. The author has managed to develop each character so well that I keep on wanting to continue to find out what happens with each one as I meet them.
Not a relevant question given the above question.
Xhex (don't know how to spell that) gave in to her ability (finally) to be willing to accept help. I identify with that.
This is primarily a comment on the series as far as I have read it, not on this individual book. The author knows how to keep a reader, and I'm still kept so far. However, in this particular book I was really sick of hearing the word "verily" and the other phrases that tried to indicate a different time period. I understand why, but "verily" was very much over-used. If this continues it will annoy me enough to give up. Maybe.
