I did understand the words.
–Robin Hobb - The Fools' Quest - c2015
The Fitz and the Fool ; book 2
The Realm of the Elderlings #15
As I loved The Fool’s Assassin as soon as I finished it I straight away borrowed the second book from the library. Don’t you just love ebooks and how immediate they are!
I think what I love most in these books is how much time and attention Hobb gives to her characters. She doesn’t rush anything, everything develops and grows rather than chases after the plot. The plot in many ways is a distraction. The important thing is the characters and their relationships. That is why I adore these books, I’ve always been a reader who loves character driven stories and that is what these books focus on.
I’m looking forward to starting the final in the trilogy next, and then, who knows I might decide to rereadall her Fitz books.
