reading it now - quick question (not so quick after typing it out) badassashaman Send a noteboard - 06/03/2011 11:18:55 PM
For the most part, I have loved this series. I'm taking my time to get through this one, though, since I want to make sure I process it all and understand what's going on - I rushed through Toll the Hounds and had to re-read later to understand everything that happened.

How does it compare to Deadhouse Gates (AKA my all-time favorite book EVER)? I'll elaborate on what I'm asking:

For me, DG's true brilliance was in its portrayal of contrasting ideals: cruelty/compassion, order/chaos, sacrifice of heroes/survival of villains, loyalty/betrayal - not to mention the way that characters could easily display both in a realistic manner.

Did it elicit the same sort of visceral reaction from you? Did you want to throw the damn book against the wall at points and write love letters to Erikson at others? I'm still in the set up chapters, but so far am enjoying it.

Thanks for the review.

the connection is tangential, at best. *NM* - 11/03/2011 06:24:35 AM 1041 Views
