Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

You went to bed at home, just like every other night. You woke up in the back of a taxi, over 250 miles away. You have no idea how you got there and no memory of the last 10 hours. You have no phone, no money, just a suicide note in your coat pocket, in your own writing. You know you weren't planning to kill yourself. Your family and friends think you are lying. Someone knows exactly what happened to you. But they're not telling....

what if you could go to alternate realities and try to find "the path not taken"? Would you find more happiness? Or would you find horrors? How would your presence change things in that world? An interesting idea, but until chapter 13 (of 15) the book is rather boring and predictable. it picks up in the last three chapters, but not enough to get 4 stars #sweepstakes #tagsgiving

I love finding a book like that provides great adventure but isn't filled with gratuitous sex and foul language. This is a book the whole family can enjoy. We have a protagonist that is a good person, generous and kind, who finds out he is much more than he realized. Even upon finding out his new skills, he remains kind, generous, and a friend to all who are not evil. He isn't swayed by the promise of riches. He is an adventurer that remains loyal to his party. An excellent book and a great narration.

The harrowing adventures of FitzChivalry Farseer and his enigmatic friend, the Fool, continue in Robin Hobb's triumphant follow-up to Fool's Assassin. But Fool's Quest is more than just a sequel. With the artistry and imagination her fans have come to expect, Hobb builds masterfully on all that has gone before, revealing devastating secrets and shocking conspiracies that cast a dark shadow over the history of Fitz and his world - a shadow that now stretches to darken all future hope.

While I really enjoyed the story, this narrator for the final trilogy is my least favorite of all the trilogy narrators. 'witted' is 'whitted', 'wine' is 'whine', 'welcome' is 'whelcome'. I guess the only good thing is he doesn't pronounce the W in 'sword'. I really wish there was consistency in narration between the three trilogies. Also, the Fool now appears to be of German descent. and Thick... well, there are no words for how bad Thick sounds. Very sad and disappointing. I love the books but the narration is a huge downfall.

Overall, the book is excellent, but the narration is very distracting when he hits a word that begins with W

FitzChivalry - royal bastard and former king’s assassin - has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire. Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past...and his future.

This is a fun filled children's book talking about puzzles and games and using the library to solve/win them. There is little greater than the love of reading and learning, which is what this book demonstrates. I only wish such a library existed. Amazing holograms, fun facts, and mazes of shelves.
