For over two months I have been caught up in Robin Hobb's enchanted world. Upon reflection I like Fitz and his story and world the best and look forward to now embarking on the final leg of this epic adventure with him and the Fool.
I have enjoyed the adventure up the Rain Wild River and the coming of age of the dragons, their keepers and all those surrounding them. At times the story did drag on, well that is how it felt for me, and found it surprising how quickly it was all concluded.
There were times when I felt that I may have been drowning in the story, or at least getting consumed by it, a little like how some of the characters found themselves being sucked into the memory stones.
A great read none the less, well worth the time and emotional input for all those who love fantasy.
