really liked it
bookshelves: read-twice
Read from September 03 to 14, 2010 — I own a copy , read count: 1

I read this years ago as an adolescent and took the notion to give it another try. I find that many of the fantasy books I read as a kid, before I got my degree in Russian literature, bore me to tears. This started out feeling a little bit that way, but it got better and by the time I got to the second book, I was drawn right in.

I feel that it still lacks a certain something, depth perhaps. Although it's not a short book, so perhaps it's just about right. I'd have liked to have followed Pug's journey at the Academy in more detail; that was the section I enjoyed the most. Although I realise that a lot has been left unrevealed for the sequels. Thankfully I'm blessed with a poor memory and can't remember anything about the sequels. I'm not going to dive straight in to Silverthorn though.

I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could, but I'm happy to round up rather than down for this one as enjoyed re-reading it more than I thought I would.
