Martin's Griffin May 20, Della had the perfect life—the family, a boyfriend, and a bright future—until she was turned, and abandoned by everyone she loves. This book is not about great writing, this book is about a GREAT STORY, told in an exciting, well edited way, without boring paragraphs describing what the hero is wearing or what the town looks like. I honestly thought when I first started reading The Way of Shadows that it was going to be a winner, but unfortunatley I was left dissapointed. It seemed that Kylars ageing happened to quickly, throw some random bad language in and you've generally got a book that had great potential but went off the boil.
The plus side is Durzo Blint is a cool character. Best Book ever! I read a book to be entertained and that is exactly what it did. I thought the characters were realistic, the world was well developed and it didn't try and be nice. More still, when you read the other books you realize it is more complex and clever than just an Assassin Creed type bloodbath. I 'm in a state of utter disbelief to find that it was possible for a few select people to label this novel, and its author as anything short of genius. Brent Weeks created a world with the capability to challenge Tolkein and his Middle Earth.
The genuine characters were backed with incredible depth in such a way so as cultivate an incredible journey, which is at the heart of any good fiction novel. His co-linear storyline would hook me instantly, leave me at a climax and then real me in with a new chapter. All in all a masterfully addictive piece of writing in which the world and characters unravel before you; only to be re-strung by the many twists and turns, leaving the reader with an uplifting sense of catharsis.
I don't think it's the writing, I think it's the love for the characters and the place and the culture that makes it a good book; one that builds up the history and surroundings so that it becomes a real world instead of just some people in a book. I think that the passion for the characters is enough to beat good writing for this time. I disagree with many of the points about the writing, I didn't find it confusing, in fact I found it well written because it suited the characters themselves. Personally I couldn't put it down and had to order the next in the trilogy as soon as possible!
I found this book to be very good. It is true that there are some confusing moments. However, if you slow down a moment and read on through, the story will grab you and take off. It's a great story, definitely worth a read. You sir must enjoy reading dictionaries. I found the book to bee thouroughly enjooable. Sorry for mi spelling and sentense structure. Good writing can only be read by good readers, Literature if for writing, Fantasy is for enjoyment. Good book, I never really had a problem with reading it.
I found I could never put it down :. I loved this book. Although I agree that it can be confusing at times, and jumpy at other times, there are just some pivotal points and areas of the book that grabbed my interest so deeply that it urged me to keep reading. I'm probably a little biased, I'm not judging this by grammar, spelling, or anything like that.
I'm judging it by how much I enjoyed it as a whole. WOW this is an amazing book. I can't find anything better then this. I'm actually trying to find a book with the same story line but I can't :. The concept of this story is outstanding. The people and their stories are very enjoyable. I don't know if it is Mr Weeks's writing or his editor but it feels as if whole sections of story are missing. Like you just catch up with the characters weeks or months later. But I would recomend this series to anyone Fully agree with the review, intriguing story and premise, massively let down by inflated writing that meanders and relies too much on clique and coincidence.
Did finish it, finally after many times putting it down and skim reading many pages. I wanted it to be better so I could be excited about reading the next instalment. I completely disagree with the review. I don't care much for trying to give an English lesson. I care about the story which was a great start to one of the most amazing series I've read. Book 2 is even better than the first, and Book 3 is even better than that.
If you don't take the time and read "The Night Angel" trilogy, then that's your loss. I completely agree with your assessment. Finding a grammatical or spelling error in a supposedly proof-read novel is like listening to a supposedly competent speaker who says "um" or "uh" multiple times. I find myself counting the mistakes I did, however, enjoy the book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good fantasy novel. Massivly disagree with the reveiw.
OK, some of the writing is not brilliant but I found that with this book that I couldn't care less. The story line and range of incredible characters more than makes up for a few spelling and grammatical errors. Buy this book!
I can hardly find words to describe how much I disagree with this review. This book was absolutely thrilling from beginning to end. If you have a hunger for proper spelling and grammar as much as the reviewer I suggest picking up the latest installment in the Merriam-Webster dictionary series. I like my fantasy gritty, bloody and absolutely no "Warrior on a quest" type garbage; needless to say this book delivered. I was not too thrilled with some of the characters right off the bat Logan Gyre comes to mind. Buy it, read it, love it.
I completely and utterly disagree with you on most of your points; granted there are numerous spelling and grammatical errors. The first of a trilogy soon to be more, Brent is working on three more books in the same world has to introduce a lot of story and character and world building. To me, Brent is already a master of his craft. He is ballsy and took a completely new approach to fantasy, which is highly admirable because he probably knew he would get people like you slamming him for it.
But he did it. You must read all of the books in the series to fully understand why it was necessary for him to incorporate so many perspectives; it makes for a vast experience of a story. It is a massive achievement and I have read it through at least twice already. If you read all three and still hold that Mr. Weeks is a poor writer, I feel pity for you, my friend. Anyone reading this, get the books; you will not be disappointed. Thank you for taking the time to write a review on this book, it really makes a difference and helps readers to find their perfect book.
