so i loved this book. I simply was really excited. I mean you know the happity dippity feeling you get when you end a book. I got that feeling after finishing this book. And i had that feeling for last 200 pages of it.
Now this is simply a long book.1000 pages easy. Based on the pages one can divide the book in three parts. Though this book is already divided in 4 books but if you are someone like me who does not even notice these partitions until someone points them out. Then it is 3 part book.
Part 1 has details and character foundation and settings. It is built up part. If you have read LOTR and liked it then the first 300 pages is choclate fudge cake for you.
Next 400 pages you start the hike things starts to swill. Things are put in motion and you start to understand. There is a lot of confusion and indecision.. Imagine order of Phoenix and multiply Harry’s confusion and anger witth every single character in the book..also Its the point where you are actually starting to remember the million names and cultures and start to get used to and actually remember the names.. There are aLot of things in this book for the first 700 pages which do not make sense but they all will eventually.
The last part of the book like most books is a complete rush.. I read 200 or so pages in two attempts that is how good it got.
The book is named WAY OF KINGS why would you not want to read it anyway!!!
The reason I have not discussed the story of the book because it along with being epic high fantasy is a mystery too.. So yeah one has to read it. Without being told what it is about, or the fun can be spoiled like milk on hot day.
Has all the correct elements honor, fall, end of the world, what it means to be better then that in true sense, heroes and villians both excellent in their domain..they grey Jedi and all for greater good philosophy..
As Tolkein says there is no story without fall.
we human always write of fall cause that is all we cause is what we see our selves to be as.this is story of fall with the fallen and phoneix.
“When we are young,” Jasnah said, “we want simple answers. There is no greater indication of youth, perhaps, than the desire for everything to be as it should. As it has ever been.”
