I think I'm going to rejoin this BR... my schedule has opened up, between all the things I've dropped and things I found out weren't available on audio...

I read a summary online to refresh myself on the first book... I think skipping a re-read was the right choice... i still remember when I put off reading this book after the first book, partially because of some retconned information at the start of this book that seems to contradict the timeline of the end of the first book...


message 10: by Siobhan (new) - added it

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments Yay come join :)

Not sure what you mean about the timeline. I didn't notice anything off (but my memory is terrible). Can you remember what you thought was wrong?

I think they basically added things into the months at the end of the visit to the foreign kingdom that didn't quite mesh with the end/epilogue of Assassin's Apprentice... but I think I was also looking for an excuse to wait...

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments Ah right, you're making me want to go back over the recap in the prologue now! 😂

I'm hoping this book isn't as depressing as the first. I'm back for more emotional punishment regardless. I never learn... 😁

I agree that (view spoiler)

Btw, I remember someone asking for the difference between Wit and Skill. And there's a bit more explanation in Ch 1.

King Shrewd

Again, I’m still loving Hobb’s writing here. Even the daily activities of going to the kitchen to grab some food, then heading to the stables, then whatever little daily errands that Fitz and other people do, are not boring at all!

I had the same thoughts. (view spoiler)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments Exactly Kathrine!! 😅 I definitely don't trust.

I hadn't read the blurb, but had heard people talking about him.

Alana | 20 comments In. May be a slow reader on this one though as life has been busy lately.


Kathrine | 1246 comments Chapter 10: (view spoiler)


Elena Granger | 83 comments I've read about 200 pages and for now I like the 1st book more than the 2nd one in the series. Don't know exactly why, but the story flow seems a bit somewhat artificial.
(view spoiler)
It was hard to read first 200 pages, but I'm going to continue reading tomorrow, I hope I like it more.


Barry (boprawira) | 1184 comments End of Ch 23 pg 465

Well, things are finally picking up.

Shrewd

The Fool is awesome!

Nighteyes is also awesome!

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1952 comments I was reading two books at once - now digging in fully to this. about 20% in.


Kathrine | 1246 comments Just finished chapter 14. I'm sorry to say the story doesn't interest me much so far. (view spoiler)


Barry (boprawira) | 1184 comments End of Ch 30

Say it isn’t so, Ms. Hobb! (view spoiler)

@Katherine, keep going. The plot really starts to move in Ch 20ish. Although, I agree that (view spoiler)

Elena Granger | 83 comments I finished reading a couple of hours ago. It was really hard to read, but last chapters made it a bit faster, kinda balanced out the slowness on the first half of the book.
The end was intriguing and interesting, now I want to read the next book too.

The Fool, Burrich and Nighteyes are my favorite.

Timelord Iain | 18013 comments Mod
Finally started... I think the narrator read the Dragonlance books I listened to last year... and I think I jumped to conclusions about the retcon conflicting with the end od the first book, or I juat don't remember what the problem was...

Exactly! I'm at chapter 19 and the pace is finally picking up, but it's 60% through the book, which I think is just too late. Agree about the length

Choko (chokog) | 7738 comments Berry, about Fitz and Patience, I completely agree! I think she is my favorite character so far, but my heart breaks for her ... And him...


Choko (chokog) | 7738 comments Up to Ch 13... This author is very good at breaking my heart...

That scene was great... not sure I even reached it on my first start a few years ago... cause the whole start makes more sense after...
