Book Review — Assassin’s Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy #1) by Robin Hobb

Assassin's Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy, #1)Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Can I just give this one a bajillion stars?

Robin Hobb is undoubtedly my favourite writer, and I decided to re-read all of her works after seeing her at Westercon 65.

I love this book because it goes slow.

I love this book because we really get into Fitz’s head.

I love this book because nothing happens, but I’m so completely engrossed in the world.

I love this book because I could read about Fitz over and over again, always with the same pleasure.

If you want a break from epic fantasy, and want to keep the world but slow the pace down a bit, give this a try.

Personal guarantee. If you don’t like it, I will come to you door with a box of chocolates.

  1. Love your review, short and hits the point! “Can I just give this one a bajillion stars?” ~ My thoughts exactly! But hey you forgot Nighteyes ❤

    • Yes, I can’t believe I missed him. My favourite part of this series. There’s a certain tear-stained page in FOOL’S ERRAND that I had the author sign.
