it was amazing
bookshelves: series

I love this series. I am immersed in a world where my interest is held by the friendship of two men, and the details and action of this world. I love the humor and found myself laughing aloud a couple of times. The writing is superb but I often need a dictionary. I also often use an atlas to help picture just where the action is taking place.
This may be the type of book perfect for an electronic device that has a built in dictionary and google at you fingertips. It's a rich world made wondrous by the attention to detail (but not painfully so) and the historical weight of reality.
I did have trouble getting into the style at first but feel greatly rewarded by sticking to it.
I'm looking forward to the next one.
