re: A new Iron Druid book is out, and it's getting killed by readers! - auyushu on 4/25/18 at 11:12 pm
Yeah, it's extremely short, and one of the worst in the series. Pretty ho hum without much excitement. The first book of his new series is pretty mediocre too. I was disappointed on both....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Kelsier was fricking amazing dude [/quote] Kelsier is great for sure, but he's only one character. None of the other characters in the series are particularly memorable at all (Sazed is as well to a certain extent).

re: Thoughts on Farseer Trilogy? - auyushu on 4/17/18 at 8:30 pm
[quote] Book 1 of the third series is damn near unreadable[/quote] It is definitely much slower than the others, but I think it does a wonderful job of showing the relationship between Molly and Fitz as well as Bee. It really sets the tone for the last two books in that trilogy. And the ending fo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Mistborn - auyushu on 4/17/18 at 8:23 pm
[quote]Brandon Sanderson does a pretty good job of building a world and developing characters, imo. [/quote] I actually found the characters to be by far the weakest part of the Mistborn series. I think his world building and in particular the magic system are fantastic. I actually much prefer...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Thoughts on Farseer Trilogy? - auyushu on 4/16/18 at 5:48 pm
It's a very good series. I put it on my lists of book series I think are better than The Name of the Wind when we had that discussion a while back(and several people fairly called me crazy, though I still think so). The first trilogy is the best I think, but all of the Fitz books and the Liveshi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
