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.
