bookshelves: best
Read from July 19 to 23, 2010 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I'd more accurately give this a 4.5 rather than 5 stars, but if I had to choose it'd be closer to 4.59 than 4.50 even, so I'll just bump it to 5. It was a triumph compared to almost any other fantasy novel I can think of, aside from Bakker's own writing. Not a disappointment in any degree worth dropping the score to a 4 by any means. I can also (especially after having finished The White-Luck Warrior) see how a lot of the more descriptive and drawn-out sections would be necessary set up for the balls that Bakker already has/is gonna (for WLW and The Unholy Consult respectively) knocked out of the fucking park. That said, this has its share of jaw-dropping home runs.
