There I was, trapped with nothing to read. And there was this thick Fantasy series by a writer I hadn't heard of, Stephen Donaldson. And this is the middle volume. It's no better than the first, and that's "Nae sa Guid!" I know he has fans, but I'm sorry for your lives. ( )

I don't like this book, and have tried giving it several chances. Given that, for those that like fantasy this may well be a fine book, it just isn't a good fit for me. ( )

second book in this series of trilogies. this time the central figure's PoV remains so unpleasant that even the author can't stand it, and retreats to a new character (also unlikeable) and his PoV for long periods of time. there's a certain sick fascination to this stuff, which consists partly of wondering what the author is thinking. beyond that, it's a pretty standard setting and plot. i'll finish the trilogy, just on the off-chance something interesting might happen, but after that no more. please.

Not bad, but Donaldson works really hard to build a hero you just don't like, and that's not my thing. ( )
