it was amazing
Read in November, 2009

Okay, it takes an age to get through - it's taken me nine books of Erikson's so far to adjust to the dense plot structure and the writing style - but I think I've just about got there. For me the secret has been to just go with the flow and don't worry too much about understanding what on earth is going on most of the time.

This means you can relax and appreciate that it's a brilliantly realised universe, fantastically well written, completely original - especially the approach to magic - and, in many places, very funny indeed. The scope is just so vast, the number of characters far too numerous, that I challenge anyone to tell me how on earth Erikson is planning to round the whole thing off. I'm naively assuming that the world WON'T simply end and everyone die, although that's what we seem to be leading up to in the next novel, which is supposed to be the end of the series.
