There isn't really anything you can do wrong in a BR :)
(except maybe for purposefully posting open spoilers)

Daniella (daniellamunozch) | 5 comments Thanks Bea, I’ll keep that in mind. I’m also planning to start today.


Shaitarn | 1862 comments Starting today as well. I love Kay's books!


Narilka | 2420 comments I tried reading Tigana earlier this year and it wasn't working for me. I'm not sure if it was mood or what so I'm going to try again with you guys and see how I do.

Daniella (daniellamunozch) | 5 comments I just read the prologue and first two chapters. He is clearly a great writer and I am intrigued so far. Sometimes I wish there was less recounting and more "showing" (view spoiler) I just prefer to have scenes, and watch the characters interact, but I loved (view spoiler)
I'll probably read more before bed too.


message 14: by Bea (new) - rated it 3 stars

Bea | 2052 comments I'm in the middle of chapter 4. I'd been a little worried since I heard that this one is kind of slow but so far I've been quite liking it.

message 15: by Bea (new) - rated it 3 stars

Bea | 2052 comments Finished part one. I'm really enjoying it so far! It has a classical feel to it but it's not too classic or overly tropey.

Shaitarn | 1862 comments I actually checked and this is Kay's first 'historical-fantasy' book; to me, this has less of a 'different version of history' feel than his later works. I mean one of the Sarantium books or The Lions of Al-Rassan feel very close to the real-world history that inspired them; this one feels more distant (possibly because of the magic and the religion).

Part 1: (view spoiler)


Narilka | 2420 comments I skimmed through part one to remind me of where I left off and picked up with part two. Almost done with it, just a handful of pages left in chapter 8. (view spoiler)

Agree. I didn't like part two as much as part one. A little too much background story. But I'll be starting part 3 later today and I hope it'll pick up again :)

Sha | 1522 comments Oh wait I wanted to read this.
//Joins in late


message 20: by James (new)

James (aeos) finally starting this


Narilka | 2420 comments I just finished CH 10. I find the pacing very uneven. (view spoiler)

How is everyone else doing?


message 22: by Bea (new) - rated it 3 stars

Bea | 2052 comments On the pacing: I kind of agree. In some parts, I'm basically glued to the pages, in others I have to force myself to not skim paragraphs...

Re chapter 10 (view spoiler)
