Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1818 comments I'll put it in spoiler tags ..not sure if it is indeed a spoiler. been awhile since i read the original trilogy!


Anni | 5020 comments The part I mentioned wasn't exactly mentioned in the blurb, but I guess who became King is indeed a spoiler...

That's my question... (view spoiler)

That blurb, in general, makes very little sense to me... I'm having trouble remembering nations and things I should be able to parse from it...

Thanks for this.
I was sooooo relieved when he said it's going to be as adult as ever. Slightly worried he'll go the route of the Half-the-Whatever trilogy.


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7670 comments There's another thread for Sept 17th, are you guys waiting until October or gonna join that one?


Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments My schedule is too full for September so I will wait.

So is mine!!

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1818 comments So glad we set a second start day to October 5th (got my copy of Little Hatred already). I'm almost halfway done with my reread of Heroes, so I should even have enough time to reread Red Country before we get to this.


Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments I also got my copy and am TRYING so damn hard not to finish before we even started our BR LOL


message 22: by Rob (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1818 comments LOL. Well, there is another BR starting today if you can't hold back :) I won't blame you.


Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments But this is the original thread! Exclamation point!

Haha yeah well, let's see how I could cope with the other three BRs I still have this month.


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7670 comments I'm in for this date. :) Still waiting for my copy to arrive, so excited to see it! :D


Frank | 671 comments Just received my copy, ready to go.


Stephen Richter (stephenofllongbeach) | 13 comments Okay. I am 40% done. Are you worried ? Are you concerned Joe can not touch his previous books in greatness.? Dash those worries away. Okay, it touches on my favorite time period in history. That era had the most fabulous losers.


Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments Now I know I will start on time. See you all in two weeks!


message 28: by Rob (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1818 comments Ok, couldn't resist. I finished my Red Country re-read on Monday and hopped in and now I'm just past the half-way mark. It's great so far. I'll wait until some of you catch up before I start discussing it.

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments Will be a bit late since I want to finish Dragon Republic first. I can't read two epic fantasy novels at the same time.

Edit: Never mind. Apparently I could finish that book on time so now I am starting! I hope we see Glokta!

So Savine is (view spoiler)

I did not expect there are so many POV characters. (view spoiler)

Fascinating read so far.


Stephen Richter (stephenofllongbeach) | 13 comments Yes, the Industrial Revolution and the Luddites. Among a host of other groups that at one time or another rose up in that time.


Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments I think I understand why people getting carried away with this book since I am experiencing it myself.

I am now at 72%. Yes, I only slept for three hours because....well you know. 'One more chapter' is my spell.

Can I just say I love all POV characters here? And they are so different, distinct. I mean, I don't like some of them - I want to smack Leo on the head - but soooo damn entertaining, each and every one.

One of the highlights so far would be that (view spoiler)

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1818 comments I'm 87% in myself and would've finished yesterday, but I've had a few outings scheduled instead.

I'm really enjoying all the characters as well. (view spoiler)(view spoiler).

The book is feeling a lot like the Blade Itself where nothing too huge happened but is setting us up nicely for the next two. My main concern is I've gone through this one so fast I'm going to be annoyed/sad when it ends.

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments That darn wedding! I might find an excuse not to go, you know hahaha

Glad I read this during the weekend.

(view spoiler)

I finished and like you I am bummed it's over. Oh dear now my expectations would be stellar for the next ones.

Small confusion still(view spoiler)

Yes and that fencing scene (view spoiler)


Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments By the way Rob, since you did the complete reread, do you think reading Red Country is advisable before this book?


Stephen Richter (stephenofllongbeach) | 13 comments Red Country is not important to A Little Hatred. However, please read it just because it is good.

I'll second Stephen. Not important for the book though (view spoiler). It's a fun read.

Yay, thanks! :)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7670 comments Ahhh thanks Iain! I much prefer being able to refer to chapter numbers!

Now you've done that it feels like a proper Abercrombie read to me!!

Timelord Iain | 15737 comments Nearly half done already, on chapter 29 in Part 2... book is flying by so fast at 2.5 to 3x speed...

There's just something about Abercrombie books, moderation... they're full of vulgarity and horrible situations, but they make it all seem so fun...

I remember getting a bit burnt out from it all last year, when we were reading the older books, but I think that was more a symptom of the other books I was reading in between, that these books themselves... this year I've been mixing it up alot more...

I'm really curious what's going on with Khalul and the Gurkhul empire... a lot seems to have happened off-page there...
