Sometimes I wonder why I bother to read certain books at all. Why do I make myself finish them? Is it because I believe I’m a bad person and need to be punished? If that’s why I must have done something very bad:”(I cant imagine what…)”: to make myself finish this one.
A very wierd book, imo. Almost nothing at all about Richard, instead it is all about his half-sister Jenn.
I have such an ambivalent attitude towards this series. I quite enjoy reading them but the political and philosophical meaning behind the stories is almost the exact opposite of everything I would believe in.
In Wizard’s First Rule for example the basic premise was that people are stupid. That mob rule always wins out, and by being able to manipulate that you can guide people into believing almost anything.
