I also thought it was great.
Im about to finish the first book in the first law trilogy (the blade itself). Feels like a 500 page prologue or a super long season 1 of a TV show. Still can't figure out if I should read book two.
I feel like I'm walking into another ASOIF/GOT type book. A soft fantasy type book where the characters are not real heros, but ultimately fucking boring. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm going to go forward.
Fuck I can't wait for the new Expanse book.
I enjoy Abercrombie's cynical tone and his stories have good pacing but ultimately can't quite connect to his world building. Best served Cold is his best book imo and it's a standalone so no fear of signing up for months.
To those who enjoy fanatasy I'd recommend a book I really loved - "The Buried Giant" by Kazuo Ishiguro.
As much as fantasy is absolutely not my thing, this one is something else. It's also a non typical work for the writer himself, written in an dark english fairytale style with a beautiful meaning behind it.
Thanks, I'll probably order it, the story sounds right up my alley
Please let me know what you think when you read it.
aye, will do
Anyone ever read In the Lake of the Woods by Tim O'Brien?
I did end up liking logen and glocta quite a bit, but the series just isn't very good. The world, plot, and "point" of the story is very thin and uninteresting. Talk about a over rated fantasy series.
i will probably read his new trilogy eventually, but man you're right.
I did finally start Wheel of Time. I'm about 50% through the first book, and man does Jordan suck at writing sometimes. There is enough to keep me interested though.
I gave up again on WOT.
Especially when I saw a new Dune book, even though I know the characters in and out. Hopefully the new movie doesnt suck.
This might be mildly interesting.
Waiting on Girls, Girls, Girls: The Nasheim Story
Just about wrapping this one up.
It's a good discussion on a bunch of cognitive errors that we all take part in. It slightly drags in places due to it being thorough and covering a bunch of bases but I enjoyed it.
