I'll let you know when I eventually read it!
I haven't read any Jennifer Fallon. I've have to give her a try. Have you read any Lynn Flewelling? Her Tamir Triad is particularly interesting.

And thanks for turning me on to bookdepository.com. They've got one or two of Larke's books for great prices. Australian books really are crazy expensive. I was over there last summer and found myself in desperate need of the next book in the Gentleman Bastards sequence. When I looked at the price on the back of the book, I couldn't believe it! Is the markup the same for ebooks?
Yeah, I definitely liked the book, but so many people act like it's the greatest fantasy novel of all time and I just don't get it.

I know what you mean about the women. Especially since most of them pissed me off simply by the tacked on feeling of their presence. Although, I didn't mind the loan shark. In truth, I would like a lot more of her story (even at the expense of Kvothe's). But I was particularly disappointed with the "love interest," Denna. She was so flat and uninteresting, despite how hard Rothfuss tried to sell us on the idea that she was mysterious and enchanting. Whenever she showed up, I really just wanted her to go away. And the ethereal sewer girl annoyed me, too. I am getting book two from the library, and I am harboring hopes for the female characters: I hope they will be there, be fully realized, and have a meaningful contribution to the story, or I hope there won't be any at all. Which I know isn't the case, since the book description is already up on Amazon. So... hoping for the former it is!

I'm jealous of your (presumed, being in Melbourne and all that) access to Glenda Larke's back catalogue. I started reading the Watergiver trilogy, and I liked it so much I've begun tracking down her other books. I found Havenstar and I have the first two books in the Isles of Glory trilogy, but I'll have to wait until some friends head over to Europe this summer before I'll have the Mirage Makers books.
Your review for The Name of the Wind said exactly what I was thinking. And even though I'd never heard of the Bechdel Test before, it's something I've been measuring books/TV shows/movies/etc. by for years. Thanks for teaching me something new!
Thanks for the Friend Invite, Tsana. We've many books in common! (I must get to listing all of mine! )

Best wishes,
Kim
Hi Tsana :) I hope you don't mind me looking through your library as it looks very interesting.
:) YAY! Glad I got the right person... I've been busy trawling around the 'shared book lists' and have found some real gems as a result. Wonder who else we can corrupt on the PZ with LibraryThing!
Hey Tsana, are you on Voyageronline.com.au perchance? I see we share a number of books and recognised your name :)
