Το τελείωσα χτες το βράδυ. Το είχα ξεκινήσει Σεπτέμβριο, αλλά μετά τις 50 πρώτες σελίδες ασχολήθηκα με άλλα πράγματα και το άφησα.

Για μένα κάθε βιβλίο αποτελείται από πέντε βασικά στοιχεία: ιδέα, χαρακτήρες, πλοκή, γραφή, τεχνική. Το Forge of Stones παίρνει:

-στην ιδέα 18/20, γιατί δεν είναι ιδιαίτερα πρωτότυπη, αλλά καταφέρνει να φαίνεται φρέσκια,

- στους χαρακτήρες 18/20, γιατί καταφέρνει να τους κάνει ξεχωριστούς μέσα στο κεφάλι μου, να έχει ο καθένας την υπόστασή του (αν και όχι τη δική του πρ

Well, what can I say? I wrote it. I can't really have an unbiased opinion, can I?

First time reviewing a book,but I'll give it a try.(if God is in a good mood,the writer won't ran me over with his car afterwards).

The forge of stones is not an easy read. It’s long and at times unnecessarily over descriptive, the story has a variety of characters, that are seemingly unconnected and the writer jumps from place to place.
However, I still really enjoyed this fantasy, science fiction meets total recall (Schwarzenegger). It really intrigued me and I felt I wanted to finish it. The character were well written and I felt their pain and their hope. I also felt their frustration and inability to affect the ongoing w

It was a moderate read over all with a complex social structure and the author's own version of the holly inquisition that brings a feeling of the old being mixed with the fantasy element.
The only negative part of the book in my opinion was that it should contain a little more action in order to be capable of holding the reader's interest more in tense and making it more enjoyable.

Could not finish this one. Got 15% of the way through and gave up. Complex yet boring. The florid writing style is very heavy on description and light on dialogue/action. This author needed an editor.
