Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments I'm starting tonight.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments You're still further than I am. Been busy at my new job so my audio time has really decreased. I'm not sure which chapter I'm at but about 25% in. (view spoiler)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments So something I don't understand. I'm about 28% in. (view spoiler)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments 35% I knew it. (view spoiler)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments Just finished chapter 10. Need to pause it. Too much with the emotions.

Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments where are you in the book?

I finished and WOW! (view spoiler)

Hobb is just getting started with the emotional factor. Each chapter will be more emotional after 15 or so.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments I'm about 90% in. I was supposed to finish this morning but got so busy at work that I've done 0 listening all day. I'm aiming on finishing tomorrow.


message 17: by Em Lost In Books (new)

Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments No worry. :)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments So OMG. Where I had left off apparently was right before (view spoiler)And I have about an hour and a half left in the audiobook but can't listen to it until tomorrow and AGGHHH!!!


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments Also, you have changed your name and left me very confused lol

Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments Ok, I'm done. I have some issues with the end of the book. (view spoiler) I loved the first 90% of this book but those few out of world/suspend belief "flaws" made me have to reduce the book from 5 to 4 stars. Of course I still can't wait to see what happens next.


message 23: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 2882 comments Is this a thread for the whole series or just a specific book? I decided to start Fool's Assassin next and would love a place to post as I read. After reading several fluff books, I need Robin Hobb :)


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments It's supposed to be for the whole series. We've only read Fool's Assassin so far. So if you're going to read it now you're right on track :-)


message 25: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 2882 comments Sweet! I'll be posting here then.

message 33: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 2882 comments I just read your spoilers for where I'm at. Diana, we had the same thought regarding (view spoiler) angle :)

Are you both continuing? Because I plan to do the full series and probably straight through at this rate.

I'm def on board to continuing. Tonight I have to update my br schedule for January. Let's do book 2 in Jan? Probably mid month would be better since most buddy reads tend to start on the 1st :-/


message 35: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 2882 comments I don't know if I'll be able to wait that long :) Hobb has that effect on me. I will continue to use this thread and read your thoughts when you can continue too.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments I get it :-) If you guys want to continue on earlier don't let me stop you. I'll just comment when I get to it. I can't go earlier since I'm going to be swamped at work.

I am still going to wait to start it till Jan cuz I want to count it for points and there's no way I'll finish in the next couple of days. But I'll try to start Jan 1 if I can :-P
